I do not see low blood sugar in my adults. If an adult has episodes of low blood sugar then there is a health issue as hypoglycemia is not “normal”. The following may cause or contribute to low blood sugar:
Stress – Stress is a major problem because a stressful puppy may
choose not to eat. This is usually brought on when a puppy enters a new home or new environment of some kind for the first time. The unfamiliarity can make them anxious, or nervous, and so they get the urge not to eat, leading to low blood sugar.
Illness – My Chihuahua puppies are healthy and strong. While that’s mostly due to the high standards I have for the care of my dogs, not all dog breeders share these same quality standards. As a result poor living conditions and maintained mother dogs, irresponsible breeders often produce sickly puppies that are more prone to hypoglycemia.
Hypothermia – A puppy can become hypothermic if their body temperature is lowered from shock or chilling or illness. This has potential to happen during winter time, where the temperature inside your home can become dangerously low for a puppy without a heating pad. A cold puppy will start to shiver in an attempt to get warm, rapidly burning through calories. In time, the body temperature will lower, sugar levels drop, and hypoglycemia sets in. So keep your puppy warm in winter time

Soft spot on top of head , usually smaller then a nickle, similar to the fontanel newborn human babies have. In the past, this molera was accepted as a mark of purity in the breed, and it still is. It is mentioned in Chihuahua breed standards the world over.It’s presence is normal in this breed and not to become alarmed over.
Unfortunately, many lay people and some ignorant veterinarians not familiar with the Chihuahua have tried to link the mere presence of a molera with brain defects and scare chihuahua owners . Imagine if human doctors did that to the parents regarding human babie’s soft spots . Some Incompetent Vets will say the puppy has a “hole in its head” and needs a neurologist immediately! This uneducated stupid advise is deserving of a dunce hat award. If your Vet is so unfamiliar with Chihuahuas as to not know about Moleras then switch to a smarter Vet. Ignorant hurtful remarks scare owners causing unnecessary distress. If your puppy has a larger molera then prevent the puppy from going under the bed or under wood furniture because if they hit the top of the head where the soft spot is they can cause injury. The area if the soft spot in infants and in chihuahuas does not have hard skull cover to protect the brain until the skull plates fuse. The closing of the molera usually happens by one year old in chihuahuas.
