Xylitol toxic to dogs

Maybe this has come up before but here is an article that says Xylitol (sweetener) can be toxic to dogs if injested. In this case it was a dachshund (the owners took her to the vet right-a-way and were able to save her) However, to date 8 dogs have died from Xylitol that vets know of. I have a mini doxie who likes to get into things all the time so I thought I would pass this on. If you can't open the site go to Wikipedia and it explains why it can be fatal in dogs.
