10. Cosmetics, Body, Face, & Hair Products
Sometimes, there is no rhyme or reason as to why our pups choose to chew (and swallow) certain non-edible items. For this reason, check your makeup, body, face and hair products for mentions of xylitol and keep out of snout’s reach. Even if the products you buy don’t contain this ingredient, consumption is certainly cause to seek emergency help.
There are a couple even more surprising products that can contain this ingredient. Parents of pups who love stealing laundry should know that certain brands of athletic clothing have pieces that contain xylitol. And for those with little ones, some pacifier wipes and bottle wipes can also have the ingredient in them. Who knew?!
