Xylitol

Xylitol is particularly toxic to dogs, causing insulin release resulting in dangerous low blood sugar levels. There is also risk of delayed liver injury. Initial dog poisoning symptoms include vomiting, lethargy and loss of coordination. This sweetener is used in some sugar free lollies, chewing gum, toothpaste, medications and some foods.
