Any thing i can put in the food to prevent hypoglicimia? How often should i feed my pup, or should I free feed? Can i give him a bath when he first comes home?

i would free feed, just measure out the recommended amount your vet suggests and leave it down all day. don't put anything in the food, the way to prevent the hypoglycemic attack is to make sure your puppy is eating regularly throughout the day and if you notice he hasn't eaten in a few hours try to coax him to eat and if it doesn't work then give him a little nutrical. others could better tell you how long they should go without eating before you need to give nutrical. i only had to use it once on chiwi.... you can get that at a petstore. the breeder gave chiwi a bath the day she was going home, i had to bath her 3 days after though.

you cant take them out unless you know for sure that where your taking them has never had other dogs, hedgehogs or foxes etc, they need to go to the toilet every hour to hour and half at first until they are older good luck :wave:

Okay, thank you! That scared me for a second... esp. since one of my hedgie girls is an escape artist, in fact she escaped her cage again an hour ago, I found her sniffing the sugar glider cages. Silly Brianna!
