Kate misses his dog anywhere in the world, she thinks back on the seven years that they had together.
Now she tells about her experience in several interviews to the English media.
Ekstra Bladet has spoken with Charlotte Bjørnvad, a professor of internal medicine for familiedyr at the University of Copenhagen, denmark, on why the sweetener is so dangerous for dogs.
- the Sweetener is very harmful for dogs. People can taste the sweetener, but the human body is experiencing it's not as sugar. The dog's body think that the sweetener is sugar. The dog start to produce insulin from the pancreas to transport sugar into the cells.
- the Challenge is that the dog think that there is a great deal of sugar, but there are only general amounts of sugar. It conveys all the sugar, as there are in the bloodstream into the cells and away from blood. Thus goes the dog into insulin shock and die. It's like an overdose of insulin to a diabetikker.
therefore, You should contact his veterinarian immediately if you suspect that your dog has eaten a food containing a sweetener.
- There are no forms for sweetening matter, as one must give up his dog, says the Charlotte Bjørnvad.
