Help, My yorkie won't eat and had a hypoglycemic attack
[COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important][/COLOR][/COLOR]
Hello everyone. I'm new here and not sure how to get around this forum or for that matter any forum. But I have to try something, maybe someone will read this.
I have a 12 week old yorkie, I brought him home on Monday and he refuses to eat. On Tuesday I took him to the vet for a wellness check but he was very week, when I was in a room waiting for vet I took him out of his carrier and he wouldn't move. He was having a hypoglycemic attack, his [COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important]sugar [COLOR=green! important]level[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] was at 20. They brought him back with Karo/water. The vet told me I would have to feed him every 2 hours, so I am having to force feed him because he refuses everything that I have tried. He will not eat the food the breeders gave me, so I have tried Royal Canin puppy, Eukenuba puppy, recovery rs (what the vet gave me) ground beef with scrambled egg, chicken [COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important]liver[/COLOR][/COLOR] (he ate that only once) [COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important]baby [COLOR=green! important]food[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] (chicken and beef). He will not eat anything on his own, so I have to keep forcefeeding him. Please, if there is anyone who has any suggestions, PLEASE, let me know.

If his blood sugar is low all the time he wont want to eat. I suggest adding honey or karo syrup to his water for a week or two to help keep his blood sugar up. You will need to keep supplimenting him until he starts to eat on his own. I also suggest keeping nutrical on hand at all times for emergencies when you are outside of the house with him.

If he won't eat his regular food, give him shredded or cubed boiled chicken, hard boiled egg (my dog would eat the yolk when she wouldn't touch anything else), cottage cheese, plain yogurt, and canned dog food. You can also try wetting down his food if you haven't been already.
Get yourself some nutrical if you don't have it already and give your dog a pea-sized amount. It should be enough sugar to boost his appetite and get him to eat his normal food. If you give him too much nutrical, it will spoil his appetite.
