Title

The one thing in almost every home that can be deadly to your dog

Summary

Xylitol -- an ingredient present in everything from sugarless gum to toothpaste -- can be deadly to dogs in very small amounts. Their bodies metabolize it as real sugar, leading to a drop in blood sugar that's fatal without quick emergency care. This post would warn owners about the dangers of xylitol, offer suggestions for keeping it out of their pet's reach, and offer instructions on what to do if they discover their dog has consumed xylitol.
