I got my little guy, Teddy last Sunday evening.
He has had a 3 seizures since the latest one this morning at 6 am.
Been doing all the things like Karo-feeding him with a syringe. Yesterday I tried to let him eat on his own. I assume he did not eat enough but I was giving him Nutra-Cal a few times to help keep his blood sugar up. Last time I gave him the Nutra-Cal was at midnight and at 6 am he had a seizure.
Emergency animal clinical said to feed him baby food like chicken and the Nutra-Cal until he reaches 2LBS.
My question is : Do you think when he reaches that 2LBS he will outgrow the seizures because of the low blood sugar.
Anyone have any suggestions as well?
Thank you for any input. I love my puppy.

That depends on whether the seizures are soley related to low blood sugar or an uderlying disease.
Try feeding him at least 4 small meals a day, the last one being before bedtime, and don't just rely on him to eat enough on his own. Puppies play hard and they forget to eat. Also, I know some totally rely on Nutrical as a supplement but it can make they crash harder once it wears off so feeding small meals throughout the day will help keep his sugar balanced.

When my Cali had several episodes of hypoglycemia I had to feed her every 2-3 hours for a few weeks and then every 4 hours till she was about 6 months old. You need to make sure he eats at each meal. I went through many different foods before finding one she would eat most of the time. Have you talked to the breeder to see what they have to say? I hope Teddy feels better soon. Have you had him to your regular vet yet? They may be able to give you some help.

I would be taking him to my regular Vet; seizures scare the heck out of me. Especially in one so little.
