Toxic xylitol now in peanut butter

Hello Friend,

A cheery Monday to you, your family, your pets and any other significant others!

I am recovering following a BIG hike- our family just finished the West Coast Trail, and long 75K distance on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

Beautiful scenery, great hiking, a TONNE of Grey Whales, not quite enough dried food, and now a big appreciation for indoor toilets, running water, and having a COMFY bed :-)

Here are a few pics..
Thousands of dogs each year are poisoned with xylitol.

Xylitol is described as a sugar alcohol used in many products, including sugar-free baked goods, candy, oral hygiene products and chewing gum.

It is the second most common ingredient that is poisoning our dogs - a ‘sugar substitute’. Not only is it found in sugar free gum, it is also in veterinary dog mouthwashes, and now peanut butter.
