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.
