Hypoglycaemia yorkies |TINY YORKIES | TINY YORKIES

|TINY YORKIES| CALGARY, | VANCOUVER | TORONTO | EDMONTON | KELOWNA |CANADA

Hypoglycemia is the medical term for blood sugar concentration below normal levels.  You may have heard of people suffering from hypoglycemia, but did you know that your tiny yorkies can also suffer from it?  Hypoglycemia in regular size yorkies and tiny yorkies | or underweight tiny yorkies puppies can happen. It is not a disease but a potentially dangerous condition that you can prevent. tiny yorkies  and standard tiny Yorkies also other toy breeds are particularly prone to canine hypoglycemia. The primary fear of every Yorkie owner/ tiny yorkies owner is that the puppy will have Hypoglycemia.  This condition is often due to lack of glucose (sugar) and inadequate nutrition.  It usually happens when a puppy is not eating as much as they should.  Tiny Yorkies puppies under 4 months of age are often affected by this type of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is common in toy dog breeds such as the Yorkshire Terrier, Pomeranian and Toy Poodles.  It can also occur in puppies 5 to 16 weeks of age. Puppies bred for their tiny size are more predisposed to hypoglycemia in dogs because insufficient muscle mass makes it difficult for the body to store glucose and regulate blood sugar properly.  For this reason, TINY Yorkies and other small dogs should be fed a high quality diet several times a day.

Symptoms of Hypoglycemia in tiny yorkies

If your tiny Yorkies suffers from hypoglycemia you will be able to tell at once.  Early signs of hypoglycemia in dogs include weakness, confusion, frothing or drooling, and wobbly gait.  The eyes will be twitching, the puppy may be shivering and trembling, and the body temperature will drop.  The gums and tongue will appear pale and grayish white rather than a healthy pink. As the condition progresses the Yorkie may appear limp and lifeless.  Their eyes may become unfocused and unresponsive.  If not cared for properly and promptly, TINY Yorkies puppies can go into a coma or convulsions and die.

Causes of Hypoglycemia in tiny yorkies

Hypoglycemia in tiny yorkies is often caused by not eating.  Generally, hypoglycaemia can occur after just eight hours of not eating.  For small puppies and toy breeds, it can occur in less time.  If your Yorkie puppy does not eat for a long period of time, a hypoglycemic attack is likely to happen.  Make sure your pet is eating in regular intervals.

Puppies might not eat, but it is never intentional.  There can be many reasons why your Yorkie may not be eating, including:

  • Stress – Visiting a veterinarian, travelling too much, change of home environment, a thunderstorm, vaccinations etc. are all things that add stress to your tiny yorkies puppy and in turn they may not want to eat.
  • Activity and Play – If a puppy is more captivated with playing than eating then they may not be getting the rest and nourishment they need.  Every couple of hours, take away their toys and be sure they get some food and rest.  Avoid over-handling young puppies so they can get enough rest and sleep.
  • Exposure to lower temperatures for longer periods of time can cause hypoglycemia in dogs.  A Yorkie’s body will adjust it’s body temperature to compensate and this can lead to a change in metabolism, all of which leads to hypoglycemia.  Keep your yorkie in areas where it stays around 72 to 74 degrees.
  • Illness – A sick puppy may not want to eat.  Your Yorkie may have a fever due to a communicable illness, reaction to a vaccination, bacterial infection or intestinal parasites can also lead to loss of appetite.

Treatment for your tiny yorkies

When it comes to hypoglycaemia in tiny Yorkies, it’s best to avoid an attack in the first place.  Make sure your puppy gets enough rest and let them feed freely.  You may also feed them 4 or 5 times a day with a diet that is high in protein.

Always keep the right room temperature.  It’s important to know your Yorkie and his or her personality as well as the routine they have.  If your Tiny Yorkies shows symptoms of hypoglycemia, treat it immediately before the condition gets worse.

To treat hypoglycemia in dogs, the initial thing you have to do is elevate the blood sugar.  Buying a supplement such as NutriCal, or NutriStat however I have had much success with white corn syrup.  If you do not have any supplements on hand, use any food that has sugar.

Put sugar in water or use maple syrup, honey or Karo syrup to treat your Yorkie’s hypoglycemia.  Place the supplement or sugar on the tongue and gums.  Make sure your puppy stays warm.  If necessary, wrap your TINY YORKIES puppy in a blanket.

Lack of fluids and hypoglycemia in Yorkies often go together.  If your puppy refuses to drink liquids then do your best to get fluids inside them yourself.  You can make use of an eye dropper to get the necessary fluids into your Yorkie’s body.

A hypoglycemic puppy will usually get better fast when given sugar.  If for some reason your Yorkie does not get well within 10 minutes, take the puppy to see the veterinarian right away.

New Puppies Care Tips

These tips are for the first few weeks, to help your new pup adjust! Please read this is very important!

  1. The most important rule, is to always have food & water available for your puppy at all times!  Due to their small size, teacups must replenish their energy more frequently than larger size puppies.  The only way to do this, is by supplying plenty of nourishment in the form of food.  You must remember that puppies only eat very small amounts of food at a time but they exert large amounts of energy.  Also, do not change the puppies’ food for the first 2 weeks until the puppy has adjusted to it’s new home.  Then, if you are going to make any changes, do it gradually by slowly adding more of the new food to the old food each day until they are totally switched over to the new food.
  2. The next most important rule, is to have a play yard or playpen or some other type of small enclosed area to keep your teacup confined in when you are not playing with them.  This will help you keep a good eye on your puppy and also help with potty training.  This must be an area with enough room for their bed and easy access to food, water and poppy pad. Never give your tiny yorkies puppy the run of the whole house until they are at least 5 or 6 months old and potty trained.  With such a large space to run around in, it is too easy for them to tire and lose track of where their food is.  This could lead to hypoglycemia or death.
  3. For the first few weeks, do not let your teacup out to play for longer than a one-hour period at a time (this applies to puppies going to be less than 2.5 lbs. full grown).  Play with them for a shore time, then give them a small dose of Nutri-Cal or corn syrup and then place them back in their playpen so they can eat and rest.  Remember that they are very tiny babies and tire easily.  Please be careful not to over-tire your puppy especially in their first few weeks.  A puppy will play until it drops.  It may play so much that it is too tired to eat.  It is up to you as the owner to be responsible and see that your puppy gets enough rest.  Most very small puppies need as much as 20 out of 24 hours rest.  Be especially aware of the amount of time children play with the puppy.  These are babies and must be treated as such.
  4. *Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar can be deadly to your puppy!  It is a problem that effects many tiny breeds of puppies usually up to the age of 5 to 16 weeks.  All owners of small dogs should be on the lookout for it!  The best preventative for this is to have corn syrup on hand (this can be found at any grocery store white kind).  You may also offer your puppy once or twice a day a very small amount of Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat, it is an extremely good source of food and vitamins.  It is also one of the best preventatives and / or cures for keeping your puppy from going into hypoglycemia.  It is important for at least the first week or so, to remember to give your puppy a little bit (1 inch strip) of Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat in the morning and in the evening.  Also, if they have been out playing for a while, or have had a lot of people carrying them around or have been away from a food source for a prolonged period of time, give them a tiny bit before retiring them to their playpen.
  5. Always make sure that you have a firm grip on your puppy at all times with it is off the ground.  Many fatalities or broken bones have been caused by a tiny dog wriggling out of an owners grasp, or jumping off a lap, couch, or bed, and breaking their neck, legs, or landing on their head.  Always supervise small children when around or handling a small dog.  The only safe way for a child to hold a small dog, is sitting on the floor with the puppy between their legs, or on their lap.  Also, never leave a small puppy on a chair, bed, couch, or stairs unattended.  Remember, a fall from as low as two feet high can be fatal!
  6. Never leave your teacup unattended unless it is in it’s playpen or a safe enclosure!  There are many places that such a tiny dog can manage to fit in, and disappear from, not to mention get stuck under!

I hope all this information on this page has been some help with the new adoption of one of our babies :)

*****Some more very important information to read over*****

 I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT IT IS EASY TO PUT INSTRUCTIONS AWAY, WITH THE BEST INTENTIONS OF READING IT LATER.  HOWEVER, SOME OF THESE GUIDELINES ARE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH FOR YOUR TINY YORKIES PUPPY.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

BEFORE YOU READ ANY FARTHER, MAKE SURE YOU REALIZE THAT A TINY YORKIES IS A HIGH MAINTENANCE DOG!  THEY REQUIRE A LOT OF TIME, ATTENTION, AND HUMAN INTERACTION!  EVEN MY BIGGEST PUPS ARE SMALL.  THE TINY YORKIES REQUIRE EXTRA ATTENTION, AND A CLOSE EYE ON THEM.  I DON’T RECOMMEND THAT YOU PURCHASE A YORKIE, ESPECIALLY A TINY, IF YOU ARE GONE A LOT, HAVE SMALL CHILDREN, OR IF YOU DON’T PLAN ON MAKING IT PART OF YOUR FAMILY.  I BEG YOU TO READ UP ON THE BREED!  THIS IS JUST A GUIDE,  NOT  A PROFESSIONAL BOOK!

TINY YORKIES CHOKE, THEY CHOKE, AND THEY CHOKE!!    WHEN GIVING YOUR PUPPY FOOD, SNACK, OR MAYBE EVEN THE FORBIDDEN TIDBIT FROM THE TABLE, ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW SMALL THEIR THROATS ARE.  UNLIKE MOST DOGS, THEY GET THE SMALLEST THINGS CAUGHT IN THEIR THROATS.  CUT-UP EVERYTHING YOU GIVE TO THEM, INTO VERY SMALL PIECES!  ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE PUPPIES, AND CONTINUING THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFETIME.   NOT ONLY IS THEIR THROATS SMALL, THE SMALLER DOGS ALSO HAVE TROUBLE CHEWING SOMETHING BIGGER.   I USE AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND DRY GO PUPPY FOOD,   MAKE SURE FOOD IS AVAILABLE TO THEM AT ALL TIMES!  THEY WILL EAT SMALL AMOUNTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY, AND NIGHT.

I ALSO RECOMMEND A HALTER LEASH FOR YOUR TINY YORKIES, (NOT A COLLAR) DUE TO THEIR SMALL TRECHEA.

TINY YORKIES CAN HAVE LOW BLOOD SUGAR UNTIL THEY ARE ABOUT 12 WEEKS OLD, AND LONGER IF THEY ARE A TINY.   MAKE SURE THEY EAT WELL BEFORE THEY PLAY TOO HARD.  IF THEY SEEM SLUGGISH, SHAKE, ACT DRUNK, OR EVEN VOLMIT, GIVE THEM A DIME-SIZE DOSE OF NUTRI-CAL, ON THEIR TONGUE OR CORN SYRUP ABOUT 1ML I LIKE CORN SYRUP I GET FAST RESPONSE, AND CALL ME.    IF THEY SEEM TO BE PLAYING REALLY HARD, IT WOULDN’T HURT TO GIVE THEM A DOSE TO BE SAFE.  BUT YOU CAN OVERDO IT, SO NO MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE A DAY.

WATCH WHERE YOU WALK, OR SIT.  YOU WILL LEARN TO SCOOT YOUR FEET WHEN YOU WALK, AND ALWAYS WATCH WHERE YOU STEP.  THEY RUN UNDER YOUR FEET, UNTIL THEY FIGURE OUT THAT IT MIGHT BE A DANGEROUS PRACTICE.  THE OTHER THING I NOTICED WITH ALL MY DOGS, IS THEY WILL JUMP ON THE COUCH OR CHAIR, AND LOOK UP AT YOU LOVINGLY.  YOU MOVE THEM OVER SO YOU CAN SIT NEXT TO THEM AND AS YOU TURN TO SIT, THEY JUMP UNDER YOU, AND END UP GETTING SAT ON!  I LEARNED TO HOLD THEM AS YOU ARE SITTING.  UNTIL THEY HAVE LEARNED TO GET OUT OF YOUR WAY, BE VERY CAREFUL!  NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN ALONE WITH PUPPIES, OR TINIES.

MANY TINY YORKIES, (EVEN 12 LB) HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO MEET THEIR DEMISE TO OUTSIDE DANGERS!  OTHER DOGS, HAWKS, OWLS, AND COYOTES, HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO CARRY THEM OFF.  USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN YOUR DOG IS OUTSIDE.   KEEP IN MIND PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO STEAL THEM TOO.  ONE NEW OWNER HAD HER BABY STOLEN WHILE PAYING FOR GAS!  BE ON YOUR GUARD AT ALL TIMES.

THEY DO QUITE WELL AS INSIDE DOGS.   I USE POTTY PADS.  I FOUND THAT THE BEDPADS (FOUND IN THE PHARMACY AREA) ARE BIGGER AND CHEAPER, THAN THE PUPPY TRAINING PADS.  THE PUPPIES ARE ALREADY USING THEM.

TINY YORKIES ARE CAPABLE OF THAT LONG BEAUTIFUL HAIR.  IT TAKES A LOT OF WORK TO KEEP THEM BEAUTIFUL.  EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO KEEP THEIR COATS SHORT, YOU NEED TO KEEP THEIR REAR-ENDS CLIPPED SHORT.  THE HAIR TENDS TO GET IN THE WAY, WHEN THEY POTTY.  EVENTUALLY, THERE IS A BUILD-UP, AND THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POOP.  THIS COULD BE VERY SERIOUS, AND NEEDS TO BE WATCHED, EVEN AS ADULTS.

WHEN YOUR PUPPY IS 7-9 MONTHS OLD, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT AN ADULT TOOTH IS NOT GROWING ALONG SIDE OF HIS PUPPY TOOTH.  IT IS VERY COMMON TO HAVE TROUBLE LOSING THEIR PUPPY TEETH.  FEMALES SHOULD BE SPAYED BEFORE THEY ARE 9 MONTHS OLD, MALES NEUTERED, AS YOUNG AS YOUR VET RECOMMENDS, THEY WILL MARK TERRITORIES IF OLDER.

YOUR  TINY YORKIES PUPPY WILL HAVE THE TIPS OF HIS EARS SHAVED THIS LOOKS MUCH MORE NEATER AND HELPS KEEP THE WEIGHT OF THE EARS,

YORKIES ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO YOUR MOODS!  THEY JUST MELT IF THEY THINK YOU ARE MAD AT THEM, BE SURE TO LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU STILL LOVE THEM, EVEN IF THEY DID DO SOMETHING BAD.  NEVER HIT OR KICK THEM.  A FIRM, “NO” IS USUALLY SUFFICIENT.   THEY WILL RUN TO YOU, IF THEY ARE IN TROUBLE, JUST TO GET THAT REASSURANCE.  CHAOS IN THE HOUSE WILL MAKE THEM SHIVER IN FEAR, AS WELL AS TRIPS TO THE VET, AND UNKNOWN CIRCUMSTANCES TO THEM.  BE SURE TO LET THEM KNOW EVERYTHING IS OK. THEY NEED LOTS OF LOVE, AND ATTENTION!

TINY YORKIES ARE VERY ACTIVE.  ESPECIALLY UP TO ABOUT 10 MONTHS OLD.  THEY ARE VERY ATHLETIC, AND LIKE TO RUN!  THEY SETTLE DOWN TO BE QUITE THE LAP DOG, AS ADULTS.  YORKIES ALSO LIKE TO CHEW.  I BUY TODDLER TEETHING TOYS (THOSE WITHOUT WATER) FOR THEM, EVEN AS ADULTS.  THE SIZE IS RIGHT, AND THEY LOVE THE RATTLE SOUNDS MOST TEETHERS COME WITH.  A WORD TO THE WISE, KEEP ALL PAPER OUT OF REACH.  PUPPIES ARE THE WORST, BUT EVEN MY ADULTS LOVE TO CHEW PAPER, ESPECIALLY MAGAZINES AND PHONE BOOKS

KEEP FOOD AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES FOR YOUR TINY YORKIES

DO NOT GIVE YOUR TINY YORKIES TABLE SCRAPS, OR CHANGE BRANDS.  IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT THEY TEND TO GAIN UN-NATURAL WEIGHT WHEN SCRAPS, OR A CHEAPER STORE BRAND IS FED.

Please send me a year old picture, so I can put into the puppy profile.
