Will stevia hurt dogs?
Note that other sound-a-likes like sorbitol, maltitol and erythritol are not poisonous to dogs.
Likewise, other sugar-free products such as stevia, saccharin, sucralose, aspartame, etc.
are also not poisonous to dogs.
If your dog gets into one of these other sound-a-likes, it's not poisonous.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
