Xylitol Kills Dogs-Petition to Have Gum Companies and Other Sugar-Free Product Companies To Put Warning Labels on Products Containing Xylitol

234 Signatures Goal: 250

     On August 19th, 2010, I had to euthanize my 3 year old, 115 lb., Rottweiler, Max. He accidentally ate a pack of Trident sugar-free gum which contained Xylitol (a sugar-alcohol that is beneficial to humans and diabetics). Max died because I was not aware that Xylitol is deadly to dogs. A small amount can kill a 20 lb. dog within 30 minutes. My goal is to persuade gum companies and other companies that use Xylitol to label their products warning pet owners on the danger of Xylitol to dogs.
