Because the gum has Xylitol in it it will be very important for you to induce vomiting. You can give them 3% hydrogen peroxide 2 teaspoons by mouth. If he does not vomit you can repeat this dose 15 minutes later. If he still does not vomit then I would recommend taking him into your veterinarian. Xylitol can have adverse effects on the liver. Will be really important to get it out of his system as soon as possible.

our pug went blind very suddenly and also has lost some of hearing.She drinks alot and was obsessed with food to the point she would jump on the table as soon as we left to eat anything on there. This stopped after a few weeks. We took her to our vet a few weeks ago telling him she was running into things like fences but saw solid objects fine, after lots of blood work she only showed signs of high cholesterol and had gained about 3 pounds in 2 months. This past sunday she cried out once and then ran into everything both solid and not. She is confused often walks around with no purpose and sometimes has panting spells. He gave us some eye drops confirmed she is perminently blind and has lost some of her hearing.We are to return this wednesday and if she has not improved then he suggested it could be a tumor. Right now if there is not any improvement we may nedd to put her down … read more
