Hypoglycemia Kits for Teacup Puppies

Hypoglycemia Kit for Puppies
If you own or are going to purchase a teacup or micro teacup size puppy then we strongly recommend having a hypoglycemia kit for emergency purpose. Having all the supplies available and ready can have a tremendous effect on  your puppies overall health. The longer the puppy is in a hypoglycemia attack the more (long-term) damage it can do to their vital organs and immune system, not to mention, hypoglycemia attacks can kill a puppy quickly so the faster you can reverse the puppies blood sugar levels the better. Below are some items every hypoglycemia kit should have..
.

  1. Karo Syrup, Honey, or Nutra-Stat (Karo Syrup is the best choice as Honey is controversy)
    .
  2. Smooth Peanut Butter ( mix peanut butter with karo syrup for optimal results. the karo syrup gives a quick sugar boost while the peanut butter gives a longer protein energy boost)
    .
  3. Soft Snugly Blanket (hypoglycemia attacks chill the puppies by causing a drop in temp. Make sure you wrap the puppy in a really soft snugly blanket and use your hands to gently stimulate the puppy while in the blanket to slowly bring the temperature back to normal. do NOT put a blow dryer or any other strong heat source on the puppy while in an attack. That can shock their system and throw them into seizures or even cardiac arrest depending on how severe the attack is)
    .
  4. Canned Royal Canin Puppy (which ALL puppies seem to LOVE the taste and flavor of) OR you can have a couple cans of what you KNOW your puppy loves to eat.
    .
  5. Syringes
    .
  6. Dextrose/B-Vitamins Fluids (must get from vet. contact us for more info)
