Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener used in many foods, including chewing gum. Unlike sugar and other sweeteners it can not be digested by plaque causing bacteria in our mouths, which, in turn, reduces the amount of plaque on our teeth. For best results, look for a gum that contains at least one gram of xylitol per piece.


Xylitol can be toxic to dogs.

To allow time gastrointestinal system to adjust, gradually increase to the recommended 5-10 grams of xylitol a day over several weeks.

People with Inflammatory Bowel disease (Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome) should avoid xylitol.
