7. Peanut Butter & Nut Butters
Some nut butter brands have snuck in xylitol as a lighter sugar replacement. Many dogs love to snack on peanut butter, which is normally okay if it’s all-natural and given in small amounts. Just make sure that your pup’s favorite Kong stuffer doesn’t contain this toxic ingredient!
8. Dental Products
Sugar is bad for your teeth, yet dental hygiene products usually have a sweet, minty taste. That’s why xylitol is a common ingredient in toothpaste, mouth wash, mouth sprays, whitening products–and even nasal sprays. This is one of the many reasons that human toothpaste should never be used to brush your dog’s teeth. Make sure to keep these products inaccessible to curious canines!
9. Medicines, Vitamins, & Supplements
While your dog should NEVER consume any of these items (at least, not without consultation from your vet), you should know that one of the many ingredients that are dangerous to dogs could include xylitol.
