If you still have the package, check the label to see if it has Xylitol. That is extremely dangerous to dogs. Your vet should have an emergency number; please call it and let us know what happens.

I have read that Xylitol that is found in some sugarless gums is NOT good for dogs, does it have that in it? Regardless, I think you should call a vet. An E-vet at this time of night!! Good luck

so then.. if there is no xylitol, she will be ok right?

I can't tell about Sorbitol from my quick Google searches. I would really call the vet and ask specifically about sorbitol.

Another option is to induce vomiting just to be safe.

Here is a vet clinic's site that has info about xylitol and dogs.

Worth looking into. I did not know this until recently. The Stride site lists all flavors as containing xylitol.

Hope everything turns out ok.

For future purposes, I think if there's any concern about a pet potentially ingesting xylitol, all pet owners should consult a vet asap. It's toxic, aka poison, to them, and waiting can cause severe vital organ damages, even death. Waiting a few hours could be a difference between life and death for some because if caught early, the vet would be able to attempt to induce vomit immediately.
