  • ·       Spread the word! No-sugar foods and products like children’s toothpaste can be deadly to dogs b/c of a sweetener called xylitol. Never give products w/xylitol to dogs and keep them out of reach! If your dog gets some, seek vet care immediately. https://go.usa.gov/xy373
  • ·       Watch our new video on the dangers of xylitol poisoning to dogs and pass it on! Keep your dog safe from xylitol poisoning by reading ingredient labels and putting foods and toothpastes, mouthwashes, meds out of reach. https://youtu.be/63Ccp5Lyt1g
