Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.

The Extra Winterfresh Gun does not have Xylitol.

These are the ingredients:

INGREDIENTS:SORBITOL, GUM BASE, GLYCEROL, MANNITOL, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, LESS THAN 2% OF: HYDROGENATED STARCH HYDROLYSATE, SOY LECITHIN, ASPARTAME, ACESULFAME K, COLORS (RED 40 LAKE, YELLOW 6), SUCRALOSE, BHT (TO MAINTAIN FRESHNESS), . PHENYKETONURICS: CONTAINS PHENYLALANINE

looks like you have dodged a bullet and no problems with toxicity. Possible a little gastrointestinal upset. The thing I worry with is the wrappers passing through if a smaller dog,

Joan

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
