Brittanys Pet Insurance News

After a recent scare that involved a seemingly harmless pack of gum, a Regina woman and a veterinarian are warning pet owners to keep anything that might contain a common sugar substitute away from dogs.

A CBC employee Keiza Pynn was shocked on Valentine’s Day when her Brittany spaniel, Django, ingested 50 pieces of sugar-free gum that contains xylitol. This sugar substitute is known to be toxic to dogs.

After quickly researching the effects of xylitol on pets, she rushed Django to the vet’s office. According to Pynn, the vet induced vomiting and advised her to leave the Brittany spaniel in their care. Just for a pack of gum, Django could not regulate any of his own blood glucose levels.

According to Dr. Paige Wark, a veterinarian at the 24-Hour Animal Care Center in Regina, dog’s body cannot distinguish artificial sugar from real sugar. “When a dog’s body ingests xylitol and releases insulin, there is no sugar there to use as a metabolite, so you get hypoglycemia or low blood sugar”, Wark said.

Wark said a lot of people visit her office monthly with issues of xylitol poisoning. According to Pynn, Django is normal but she wants to raise awareness about the dangers of the ingredient. She also said that peanut butter and gum contains xylitol.
