The FDA recently issued a strong warning to pet owners in regards to a sweetener known as Xylitol. This ingredient is found in many different products such as mints, chewing gum, and many nut-based kinds of butter such as peanut butter. This ingredient is classified as a sugar alcohol, and it is FDA-approved for human consumption.

There has been a large increase in canine deaths related to this compound which has led to the newly issued warning by the FDA. The shocking truth is people if it is FDA-approved nine times out of ten you probably shouldn’t be consuming it.
