She was a beautiful person inside and out and will be very much missed! Deb & Scott Kinney emoil: Thank you Mr. Ogden, and other school leaders - It is awesome to see such prompt action taken concerning the communication breakdown of December 19th and 20th. I am relieved to hear that the automated phone system will again be used when inclement weather closes the school. The new apps and other technological advances are groovy for some folks, but rll take old school ways almost every time. Most happily yours, Truly Vanderstaay MY DOG ALMOST DIED. It was Christmas night. One of our guests left her suitcase open and Molly (my dog) got ahold of the guest's sugarless gum. The gum contained Xylitol. When it was poirited'0ut t0 me that X/li is a dead|y poison to dogS, I immediately tookMolly to the all night emergency vet. She was on a constant dextrose drip for two days. At night she was in the emergency vet's hospital. During the day she was given a drip at her regular vet's hospital. I transported her with her IV to the regular vet each morning and to the emergency vet each afternoon. She survived because I acted immediately when I was how toxic Xylitol was and I got her to the vet before any symptoms occurred. Without immediate intervention a dog injecting Xylitol will appear lethargic, weak, have seizures, and quit eating. These symptoms may not appear for twelve to twenty-four hours. Needless to say, once the symptoms occur the prognosis of survival is not good. Xylitol, when entering a dog's system, acts like a sugar, which it is not. The pancreas thinks it is sugar and acts to lower the needed amount of sugar in the blood stream. If the sugar level continues to drop, and is not stopped, the dog will die. If the dog survives, it will have to have its liver and kidneys checked several times over three or four weeks. I hope this information will help prevent any dog owner frorr having Xylitol kill their animal. I am so lucky I had a person at my home that knew how lethality of Xylitol. Mary Morris / / / 92036 / / / / / ,.q Editors Note: The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center cautions animal owners that xylitol, a sweetener found in certain sugar- free chewing gums, candies, baked goods and other products can potentially cause serious and even life-threatening problems for pets. "Last year, we managed more than 170 cases involving xylitol- containing products, "' says Dana Farbman, CVT and spokesperson for the Center. "This is a significant increase from 2004, when we managed about 70." Barely halfway into 2006, the center has already managed about 114 cases. Why the increase? "'lt's difficult to say, "" Farbman states. "Xylitol products are relatively new to the United States marketplace, so one possibility may be an increase in availability. '" According to Dr. Eric Dunayer, veterinarian and toxicologist for the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, dogs ingesting significant amounts of items sweetened with xylitol couM develop a fairly sudden drop in blood sugar, resulting in depression, loss of coordination and seizures. "These signs can develop quite rapidly, at times less than 30 minutes after ingestion of the product. Therefore, it is crucial that pet owners seek veterinary treatment 'irhme'diately." Dr DuncoJe'r 'also t stated that there appears to be a strbig link between Xylitol ingestions and the development of liver failure in dogs. While it was previously thought that only large concentrations of xylitol could result in problems, this appears to no longer be the case. "We seem to be learning new information with each subsequent case we manage, '" says Dr. Dunayer "Our concern used to be mainly with products that contain xylitol as one of the first ingredients. However, we have begun to see problems developing from ingestions of products with lesser amounts of this sweetener. "" He also says that with smaller concentrations of xylitol, the onset of clinical signs could be delayed as much as 12 hours after ingestion. "Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that even if your pet does not develop signs right away, it does not mean that problems won't develop later on." The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center strongly urges pet owners to be especially diligent in keeping candy, gum or other foods containing xylitol out of the reach of pets. As with any potentially toxic substance, should accidental exposures occur, it is important to contact your local veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center for immediate assistance.
