        My bun ate some gum and the wrapper. She is a dutch about 3.5 lbs. She is not showing any signs of sickness, but I understand that sorbitol can damage the liver. What are the signs I should be looking for? I called my vet, they said to call poison control. Not sure what the right course of action is as she does seem fine now. If anyone know, please let me know.

        thank you

          How much gum are we talking here? If it was a stick of gum or less, I wouldn’t worry too much about sorbitol. I would be more worried about general GI upset or stasis simply by eating the gum. So watch food intake and poop output.

            Sorbitol is present in a lot of different fruits. It’s long-term ingestion that can be a problem.
