Xylitol: this is the MOST dangerous artificial sweetener for dogs. It is found in gums, candy, toothpaste. It can cause your dog's blood suger to plummet sending him or her into a seizure. Dogs can easily die quickly from consuming Xylitol. It can also result in liver damage if they live. PLEASE be VERY careful not to feed your pooch anything with articial sweetener.
Recently, I have learned of the dangers of artificial sweetners to dogs, esp to toy dogs. Giving your yorkie any type of treat w/artificial sweetner can not only be dangerous to their health, it can make them violently ill and even result in death. Even a small piece of gum w/artificial sweetner is dangerous to your yorkie. Please do NOT feed any type of snack w/artificial sweetner to your yorkie.
