Artificial Sweetener Hazard

by Heather on September 1, 2015

Most of us choose to live a healthy lifestyle, and we only want what is best for our pets. It is difficult to refrain from allowing food that we eat as humans to be given to our pets, especially when they give the sad eyes and look heartbroken when they do not receive. However, it is important to be diligent on what our pets ingest. An artificial sweetener that has recent concern is under scrutiny for causing significant health issues for dogs. The active ingredient in Xylitol can be very dangerous for dogs when being consumed. It can be found in many food products including yogurt, ice cream, and peanut butter. And we have all tried peanut butter as a source in administering pills to our dogs. While this ingredient does not cause as much concern for adult humans, it certainly does for our pets. Please read more in the article below…..
