by Ron Kurtus (updated 18 January 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why do they put xylitol in chewing gum?

To purposely poison dogs

To reduce the calories when humans chew the gum

No one knows for sure

2. How many sticks of gum can be harmful to dogs?

As low as 1 to 3 sticks

Any amount, as long as they are in a package

It depends whether the gum is chewed or not

3. How do you prevent your dog from eating gum in the house?

Scold the dog when it tries to eat the gum

Put the dog outside when you are chewing gum in the house

Do not leave packages of gum laying where the dog can get to them
