The first thing to reach for is a concentrated sucrose/glucose syrup such as Karo. Hypoglycemia should be suspected in any miniature puppy acting in that manner. Dosing is empirical but approximates 1 mL (1/5 of a teaspoon) per 1 lb of body weight. You should see a positive effect within 30 minutes. If you don't have such a syrup at home, please run her over to her vet who can administer the glucose intravenously. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish and please keep me posted.
