I recently learned that xylitol is now being added to some specialty brands of peanut butter. Why is that important?
Xylitol, a natural sweetener that is found in many of our foods, vitamins, chewing gum and many other products, while safe for humans can be extremely toxic to dogs.
In dogs, xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar leading to hypoglycemia and death. It has also been associated with liver failure.
