Hi this is Dr. Hill. How long ago did Roxy eat the gum? How soon after ingestion were you able to get her to vomit?
good job getting her to throw up. Orbit gum has xylitol which can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver issues. If you are not able to get her to someone tonight, then she needs to go to your veterinary hospital first thing in the morning. She will need to have some bloodwork checked. The liver issues associated with xylitol can take a few days to materialize. They may want to treat her with activated charcoal to try and absorb any that is still in her intestinal tract.
Your welcome. If you are satisfied with my answer then please take time to rate my response. You can still post on this thread, even after rating. Take care.
