Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you. Was Ditty playing before this happened?

Do you have Karo , Pancake syrup or Nutrical in the house?

I am sorry nobody responded sooner. I just came on and want to assist.It does not look you are on, so I want to leave you some information. I suspect the Puppy is going Hypoglycemic. The blood sugar drops rapily in these little ones. You need to take some Karo syrup, Pancake Syrup or Nutrical into him to balance the Glucose levels. When they go into Hypoglycemia they get lethargic shake and can go into seizures. Start with 1/2 teaspoon full on the gums and tongue. You can repeat the syrup. This should pull your little one out and make Ditty feel better. This is some information on Hypoglycemia:

How is Ditty doing today? Did the syrup seem to help him feel better? I wanted to check in.
