Karo Syrup or Nutri-Cal (Use only as needed).
Give Nutri-cal whenever your new puppy is sick or stressed. Nutri-cal or Karo syrup will help balance the puppy’s sugar level, and help prevent hypoglycemia. You need to keep some dry puppy food available at all times. If your puppy seems lethargic and it’s gums are turning pale, give it Karo Syrup immediately at full strength and notify your veterinarian. This puppy needs to eat every few hours.
Hypoglycemia can be deadly – As long as your puppy eats regularly, it should be fine.
