Dangers of Xylitol

FDA is warning pet owners of the dangers of Xylitol ingestion in pets

The FDA is cautioning consumers about the risks associated with the accidental consumption of xylitol by dogs and ferrets. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol approved for use in many common products, including sugar-free baked goods, candy, oral hygiene products, and chewing gum. Xylitol can be found in many over-the-counter drugs such as chewable vitamins and throat lozenges and sprays. It can also be purchased in bulk bags for use in home baking. These products are intended only for human use.

FDA is aware of complaints involving dogs that experienced illness associated with the accidental consumption of xylitol. Xylitol is safe for humans but it can be harmful to dogs and ferrets as well as cats. FDA is advising consumers to always read the label on products and to not presume that a product is safe for humans is safe for your pet.

The FDA reports included clinical signs such as a sudden drop in blood sugar (hypoglycemia), seizures and liver failure. If you suspect your pet has ingested xylitol, some signs to look for are depression, loss of coordination and vomiting. The signs of illness may occur within minutes to days of ingesting xylitol. Owners should be advised to consult their veterinarian or pet poison control center immediately for advice if they know or suspect that their pet has ingested a human product containing xylitol.

Please visit the links and resources page for animal poison control numbers.

CONSUMERS WHO WISH TO REPORT ANIMAL ILLNESS MAY CONTACT THE FDA CONSUMER COMPLAINT COORDINATOR IN THEIR STATE. CONSUMERS IN NJ MAY CALL (973) 331-4917.

We are so grateful for and humbled by all of our clients generosity each year, but
this year we would like to ask that instead of bringing “gifts” for us,
bring any non-perishable pet food product to the office and we will
make a donation to the local shelters. It is the season of giving and
we hope we can give a great gift to all the pets in need!
We will accept any donation as long as it is non-perishable.
Bring in as much or as little as you can.
Every can helps feed an animal in need.

Together, we can help!
