With thanks to Pet Tech Australia (from Facebook) …..

(NaturalNews) Many pet owners are aware that the sugar substitute Xylitol, found in many sugar free chewing gums, is toxic to dogs. However few pet owners would think to look for Xylitol listed as an ingredient in a pet oral health product; especially one that claims to be developed by “Veterinary Dental Specialists”.

As ridiculous as it might be, the pet oral health product C.E.T. AquaDent lists as the third ingredient Xylitol; well known to be toxic to pets. AquaDent is sold by many pet retail outlets including 1800PetMeds.com. The 1800PetMeds website states “C.E.T. AquaDent is a drinking water additive formulated by veterinary dental specialists to help freshen your pet’s breath and maintain oral hygiene in conjunction with regular home dental care for your pet.” The ingredients in AquaDent are listed as follows: Purified water, Glycerine, Xylitol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium sorbate, Emilgase (enzyme), Zinc gluconate, Sodium benzoate, FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Yellow No. 5, Chlorhexidine gluconate.

The below quoted part of the article is IMO the most important part of this article

The moral of the story is this, read the ingredients of every single product provided to your pet. Just because a pet product is “formulated by veterinary specialists” doesn’t mean its safe.

In other words, please educate yourself.  Even vets can get it wrong.
