Xylitol is digested by pets in a different way to humans. It can cause their blood sugar levels to drop dramatically and in some cases even cause death. So please DO NOT give your pet anything containing Silverbirch.
HOW MUCH SILVERBIRCH CAN I USE?
The body treats xylitol differently from sugar and artificial sweeteners and some users find it can have a laxative effect. If this occurs reduce the amount you are using until your body gets use to it. To help avoid this effect we suggest that daily consumption should be limited to 5g – 10g per 10kg of body weight (adults and children alike) and very young children shouldn't use it.
