Many sugarless gums contain xylitol, which have been associated with causing low blood sugar, and associated with liver failure in dogs.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center strongly urges pet owners to be especially diligent in keeping candy, gum or other foods containing xylitol out of the reach of pets. As with any potentially toxic substance, should accidental exposures occur, it is important to contact your local veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center for immediate assistance.

For more information, please read Xylitol Toxicity.
