Hypoglycemia in Toy Breeds
What is Hypoglycemia? If you have purchased a Tiny pup from us – please read! One of the most serious side effects of too much insulin is hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose [low bloodsugar]. Hypoglycemia can be – but need not be – a life-threatening, even fatal condition and often happens in the smaller toy breeds.
Remember your health guarantee does not cover hypoglycemia So please read this!
How does Hypoglycemia happen? Hypoglycemia is usually stress related.
Puppy Stress: Moving to a new home, being alone for long periods of time [vs. with litter mates], rough play with children and older pets; excessive exercise; food changes or not enough food to eat; etc. Hypoglycemia need not be life threatening, however when your pup does not receive enough TLC and monitoring from you, it well can!
Signs of Hypoglycemia: The occurrence of signs depends on how far the blood sugar level drops and how far into the episode the puppy has progressed. lethargy (lack of energy) ~~~~~~ weakness ~~~~~ head tilting ~~~~~ unbalanced wobbling when walking ~~~~~ excessive hunger or refusal to eat ~~~~~ restlessness, whimpering and high pitched whining or moaning ~~~~~ shivering and uncontrollable trembling ~~~~~ disorientation ~~~~~ stupor ~~~~~ convulsions or seizures ~~~~~ coma ~~~~~ death
What can I do during an episode? Time is of the essence! During a hypoglycemic attack, your goal is to stay calm, and bring the blood glucose back to a safe level, continue to observe your pet, and contact the vet.
If your pet is acting strangely, displaying one or several of the above symptoms, you should assume it is due to hypoglycemia and treat it accordingly. This is a situation where it is better to be safe than sorry. If your
pet is not hypoglycemic, your treatment may have raised the blood glucose for a few hours. If your pet was hypoglycemic, you may have just saved its life. THE AFTER CARE with a hypoglycemic incident: Keeping your puppy warm and making sure you feed it 3-4 times x day or even more if its only eating little bits at a time. If puppy is not hungry you may need to hand feed. Some puppies take a good week to get back to normal and some bounce back right away. Just keep a good eye on it and monitor meals vs activity.
DURING THE HYPOGLYCEMIA SHOCK– If the puppy is to weak to swallow and take the honey or nutra drops on its own , it may be necessary to pry its mouth open and rub it on gums or roof of mouth (slowly) it may be necessary to give several doses. The Nutra-drops allows nutrition to by pass digestion and goes right in to blood stream so its my favorite if they are very weak and its very handy if puppy is unresponsive. After a few doses of this your puppy should show some sort of improvement within 10 minutes. After your puppy feels better please give it a good doggy food, canned food or meat baby food to level out its blood sugar. ***important*** if puppy does not respond or is still comatose please take to Vet immediately as puppy may need IV (dextrose) be sure to tell vet that you suspect hypoglycemic shock and ask for a shot of dextrose before the Vet does anything else.
If you own a Toy pup, always have Nutri-cal paste or honey available. honey or “Nutra drops” are my favorite as they seem to be absorbed very quickly but any pancake syrup, karo or table sugar dissolved in some water will also work. Wherever your pet is, there should be an emergency supply of sugar. Pet stores all sell nutrical paste. Most toy breed breeders recommend HONEY or nutri-cal, a nutritional supplement as a daily treat until the pup is 12 weeks old, and then as needed during major changes or stressful situations [moving, vet visits, grooming, playing with the grand children…]. 1/4 a teaspoon of honey, once or twice a day, will go a long
way in prevention!
