    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    The gum will just pass through her, more than likely, harmlessly. It's not likely to cause a blockage unless she ate a great deal- it's just like a kid swallowing gum.

    Hopefully your pet is doing well at this point. I would like to stress that certain candies are sweetened with xylitol. This ingredient can be very toxic to pets. Care should be taken to keep all sweets, especially those sweetened with this artificial sweetener away from dogs. If one is ever ingest, a quick trip to the emergency clinic or your daytime practitioner is just what the doctor ordered.
