Customer Question

Hi,I just dropped a bunch of mints on the floor. I moved my dog but he may have grabbed one... There were supposed to be 24 in the pack and I only found 23. The first ingredient is xylitol. The mints are ''icebreakers wibtermint chews, cool blasts". If my 12 pound dog ate one of these, would it be a fatal dose? I am unable to induce vomit as I am at work...

Do not induce vomiting. The amount does not seem to be anywhere near a fatal dose. Symptoms will occur quickly, usually within 30 minutes, if a toxic dose. If this happened at least 30 minutes ago, you should have no concerns.
