What is Xylitol and is it Poisonous to Dogs?

Recently, there was a two year old Golden Retriever by the name of Luna who was in the news because she had gotten into a package of sugarless gum (it was sealed but she broke the seal as well). Unfortunately, she had ingested enough of the xylitol that she suffered severe liver damage and her owners had to put her down. This blog is dedicated to the memory of Luna.Xylitol is a natural sugar free sweetener and commonly used in many chewing gums, mints, puddings, gelatin snacks, baked goods, oral rinses, toothpastes, dental floss, cough syrup, and over the counter...
