Please tell me the exact brand and flavor of gum, how long ago he ingested it, and if inducing emesis were successful. I can be more accurate with a prognosis for him when I know the above answers. If Wrigley's EXTRA were ingested, there's little reason for concern. None of the flavors contain the dangerous sugar substitute xylitol.
