Karo Syrup or Nutri-Cal (Use only as needed).
Nutri-cal or Karo syrup will help balance the puppy’s sugar level if the sugar level drops. Low sugar level causes hypoglycemia. If your puppy seems lethargic and it’s gums are turning pale, give it Karo Syrup immediately at full strength and notify your veterinarian.
Hypoglycemia can be deadly – As long as your puppy eats regularly, gets plenty of rest, and is not sick, it should be fine.
