Puppies question

I have a 3 month old toy fox terrier. Out of nowhere after having just been walking around the house normal he seems very sleepy, shaking, having a hard time walking or holding his head up, almost as if he’s dizzy. He didn’t fall or get hurt that I saw. I know puppies are supposed to get a lot of sleep and maybe he’s just tired because I work night shift and my husband is home and up with him during the day so maybe he’s not had enough sleep but he has never acted like this before. He has eaten this morning and had water.
Any thoughts?

Hey LRowlandsRN,

When my puppy was 3 months old she fluctuated from max energy to a drowsy stroll around the house. In this stage their bodies are exhausted from just growing. I wouldn't worry too much, but I would pay close attention to his behavior. If it persists you may have to take him in.

For some free tips on training your dog at this stage, check out Mastering Dog Companionship

I hope this helps, and I hope all is well with your pup!

-Jeff

Puppy hypoglycemia....low blood sugar. Feed 3-4 small meals a day until older and able to control sugar level better. A puppy can go into hypoglycemic coma if sugar goes to low. Toy breeds like toy foxes are more prone then large breeds. Small body spit fire attitude and energy usually off the charts. You can also get some nutra-cal or nutra stat for more sugar. Yes, rest is important so kennel/play pen some during the day to rest.
