My dog ate some...

My dog ate some Orbit Bubblemint gum about 45 minutes ago he still attentive doesnt seem to be lethargic no vomitting

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Ive been doing some research and the gum that was eaten doesn't have xytolil according to some sites but other say they do hes a medium sized dog Cocker King Charles mix and is 6 years old ive been watching him the last 45 min very closely

If there was no Xylitol in the gum, then there is no worry about toxicity. The other artificial sweeteners (sorbitol, aspartame) are not toxic. It's just Xylitol that can cause low blood glucose and liver toxicity.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
