Xylitol: WARNING:  Xylitol is toxic to all dogs, but can be lethal in smaller breeds like mine.  I do not bake with xylitol as I would be afraid I or my husband would one day forget and accidentally give a bite of something baked with it to our 12# dog.  I know someone who actually lost her rat terrier who consumed an entire pack of sugar-free gum, paper and all.  The dog had gotten into her purse that was open and unattended.  So sad.

    • Only one my vet has said was lethally toxic was xylitol. Though I don’t feed my dog sweet foods other than fruit. Technically, beet sugar and REAL sugar are also bad for dogs……..bad for their urinary systems, so I find it sad that so many dog food makers (cheaper brands mostly) put beet pulp in their dry dog foods. Seriously doubt they bother extracting the beet sugar first. 😦


  1. Another great place to buy things are
    I live in the UK and half of what I find essential to my low-carb way of eating can only be purchased in the United States. Thanks to some of these online stockists, purchasing them is no longer a problem.

    Thank you for all the research you do, I am new to lowcarbing and have just found your site.
