Those of You with Chihuahua's

Hi Everyone I am getting my puppy on friday and I was given nutra sweet for the dog...because they have low blood sugar. I am wondering how much is too much and how much is too little to give the dog the nutrasweet. If anyone knows more about it please let me know thank you.

did the store say that the pup has low blood sugar? if so then you will need to consult a vet asap about that. I haev never heard of using nutra sweet. I know of a breeder that if the puppy started to crash from low blood sugar they would rub kyro syrup on its gums. But I have only ever seen one Chihuahua pup crash from low blood sugar and it was a scary scary sight.

the store didn't say that she had low blood sugar, they just told me to give it to her 2-3 times a day bc they could get low blood sugar...I did read somewhere that it was normal for chi's to have it so I dunno.

I wouldn't give your puppy nutrasweet. When you take the pup in for shots, ask the vet about it.... it really shouldn't be necessary.

Are you sure it's not Nutri-cal? That would make more sense. Nutrasweet has no sugar in it anyway, so it would essentially do nothing.

Our vets usually recommend feeding baby chihuahuas and other tiny puppies every 3-4 hours so that they can maintain their blood sugar levels if they're having a problem. If you're worried, I'd consult your vet.
