Hello,

This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Has she eaten anything today unusual or is it possible that she was able to eat medication that might have fallen on the floor?

It sounds like she may have a low blood sugar. It is a more common problem for smaller puppies when they have eaten for several hours. Try giving her honey or karo syrup as well as a normal meal. The honey can be rubbed on her gums if she won't eat it. That should get her blood sugar into the normal range and just make sure she eats a meal. If she continues to act strangely or worsens despite the honey and food then have her seen by a vet immediately. If you have more questions please reply back.
