HYPOGLYCEMIA: Hypoglycemia is a condition in which the blood sugar level drops to an extremely low level, causing a "sugar attack." When levels of glucose in the blood drop rapidly, the dog's body and brain are deprived of essential nutrients. The results of hypoglycemia can be weakness, seizures, coma, and in severe cases, death. Because Chihuahuas are so small, they can be prone to hypoglycemia, especially when they are very young. Hypoglycemia is usually caused by stress, change of environment, illness, lack of food, or by using up stored energy without it being replenished. It is important to make sure that young puppies and very tiny Chihuahuas eat regularly throughout the day. Another preventative for hypoglycemia is regular feeding of a high-calorie supplement called Nutri-Cal, available at local pet stores or through your vet. Symptoms to look for include vomiting, diarrhea, listlessness, pale to white gums, staggering gait, and refusal to eat. If the dog does not receive treatment for this, the "sugar attack" can progress into the more serious stages of this condition. Behavior such as inability to hold down food and diarrhea can become progressively worse to the point of seizures, complete unresponsiveness, and even death. Preventing Hypoglycemia can be done by giving your this chihuahua Nutri-Cal three to four times daily. I find that giving the Nutri-Cal 10 minutes before offering a meal entices the puppies to eat. You may also add a small amount of Karo Syrup to his/her drinking water on a daily basis. Treating Hypoglycemia can be a little more difficult. The first thing recommended is rubbing some Karo Syrup on the gums and tongue of your this chihuahua. Once your this chihuahua begins to show interest in his/her food again, I would increase his/her meals to six small meals throughout the day. Hypoglycemia tends to fade off by the time your this chihuahua reaches six months of age. This information is not intended to replace the advice of your Veterinarian. If you suspect your this chihuahua has become Hypoglycemic, I always recommend to seek medical attention immediately. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us anytime at (603)244-8102. I have read and understand what to do in the case that my this chihuahua develops Hypoglycemia. I agree to provide Veterinary care for my this chihuahua if he/she shows any of the symptoms above. I will NOT hold Knockout Chihuahuas responsible in the case that my this chihuahua develops Hypoglycemia. Buyer’s Signature: __________________________ Date: ___________
