He got hold of...

He got hold of a piece of nicotine gum, we got it away from him but he did chew on it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?

I also need you to tell me the ingredients in the nicotine gum.....does it have xylitol in it?
