Xylitol, Chocolate and Pets

Please don’t feed your pets candy during Halloween! They don’t need it so it’s better to be safe than sorry.  The AVMA strongly advises avoiding food with the two which often appear in candy

  1. Xylitol-containing products (xylitol is an artificial sweetener often found in sugar-free candy and gum);
  2. Chocolate

In the event that you pet does eat something that concerns you, please call us or the Pet Poison Hotline (they may charge a small fee for the call) at 800-213-6680)
