The bones are very small and fragile at this time and great care must be taken when picking up and holding a baby Pomeranian.
It is best to use 2 hands; one placed under the bottom of the pup and the other held to support the chest, with the arms comfortably resting over the owner's hand.
One of the dangers of any young puppy
is the possibility of a sudden decrease in blood sugar levels. If this is to happen, it is called hypoglycemia. Sometimes it happens simply because of their small size. However, elements such as stress or not receiving enough food can cause it to happen. It comes on quickly and one must provide at-home treatment right away before it progresses to coma. One of the best remedies to help in this situation is to rub some honey on the gums of the baby Pomeranian (many sources will recommend Karo syrup, however this has laxative side effects, therefore we do not recommend this).
Putting this onto the gums allows the high sugar content to be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
Since this is a serious condition, one should then take their pup to the veterinarian so that levels can be checked with blood tests and an IV can be given if necessary. Symptoms of this are weakness, dizziness, inability to balance, confusion and sleepiness.
