COBB COUNTY, Ga. – It’s an ingredient that’s toxic for animals but several pet owners don’t know about it.
Xylitol is widely used as a sugar sweetener in toothpaste, gum and candies. It’s fine for humans but not so much for dogs, as one pet owner we spoke with found out.
“It was terrifying. I was scared for my dog’s life,” said dog owner Parker Hollander.
His dog was able to recover.
