Within the last 20-30 minutes, my 63 lb. Mrs Grey, Sabine, ate many of a pack of Orbit gum the she uncovered in mine daughter"s purse, which she coincidentally left open a little bit. I know the artificially-sweetened gums can be harmful. Ingredients contain Sorbito, climate it also says "less 보다 2% Xylitol," which ns think is the really negative ingredient. I called the e-vet, they claimed she should be OK, simply to observe and also bring her in automatically if she plot "odd" in any kind of way. I tried calling poison Control, and keep getting the blog post that "due come network issues, contact cannot go through." has actually anyone else had actually their Grey eat sugarless gum???????? Thanks.

On the various other hand, renowned gums, such together "Orbit" contain about 0.3-0.4 g/piece, therefore the same weight dog (22 lbs) would must eat 6-7 pieces to have a similar effect. Since manufacturers room not forced to report the exact amount the xylitol that is in their product, that is best to assume any kind of ingestion of xylitol by your dog to be perhaps toxic. Signs of hypoglycemia can begin as early as 30 minutes after ingestion and can persist because that 1-2 days. Part dogs have a delay onset the hypoglycemia, as much as 12-18 hrs later. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include: weakness, depression, disorientation, ataxia (unsteady walking), collapse, and also seizures.

Xylitol has also been displayed to reason liver fail in dogs. There is much research that requirements to be conducted in this area, but it appears that countless dogs that perform not display symptoms that hypoglycemia can go ~ above to build problems v their liver if left untreated. Dosage of better than 1.5-2 g/kg are thought to cause hepatic necrosis (death of liver cells).
