My miniature yorkshire terrier – not teacup- shakes really bad when she is hungry…but once fed she stops. She gets fed 3 times daily. Im wondering if this is normal as she is so small, or should i take her to the vet?
I took her to the vet a month ago and they said i was feeding her the right amount of food everyday…I measure it each time
Tiny and toy breeds can suffer from hypoglycemia, which means they have difficulty regulating their blood sugar levels.
Low blood sugar can cause shaking, shivering, lethargy, disorientation, even seizures if it gets severe enough. Tiny puppies like this need to be fed several times a day, and even as adults they usually need to be fed at least twice daily.
I'd recommend that you feed your pup more often, perhaps 4 times a day instead of 3, this should help her. You can also add a little bit of Karo syrup to her water once a day. If these measure don't help, I'd recommend talking to your veterinarian about it.
Best of luck with her.Tags: miniature yorkshire terrier, Yorkie
