Hi there,

Thanks for your question regarding maltodextrin and sucralose in dogs! Thankfully neither of the these products are toxic to dogs, in fact maltodextrin is in quite a few dog treats and foods. We do have to be very wary of another artificial sweetner called xylitol however. This is commonly found any several human foods, but particualrly sugar free gums. Definitely steer clear of this product as it is highly toxic in dogs and it wouldn't take much for a Pom to be severely affected.

I hope this helps! Thanks and please now click ACCEPT.

Kind Regards,
