SawStar's Maltese


"                      "Hypoglycemia" is low blood sugar

Traveling By Plane - SawStar's  Maltese puppies are veterinarian

checked to ensure their health prior to leaving our home an

given “Nutri-Stat" or “Nutri-Cal" a high calorie food supplement so we know that your new Maltese baby will be healthy and safe while traveling home to their new home!

Your puppy will have food and water available during their flight, but often the puppy doesn't always eat and is under a lot of stress.


You will need to have Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat even Light/Dark Karo Syrup, Pancake Syrup or Honey will do on hand to give to your pup right away when picking up your new puppy from the airport.


Puppies should not go no more then a couple of hours without eating.


Your puppy a very limited reserve - they will go into shock and then die if they do not eat!


Always keep food and water available!

Keep track on how much they are eating when traveling or after
purchasing your puppy and taking it home.

Traveling By Car Please have on hand Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat and or Karo/Pancake syrup PRIOR to purchasing your puppy to prepare them for traveling.

Hypoglycemia is probably the most important thing you can learn about. New and transitioning toy or teacup puppies are very susceptible to low blood sugar due to their small liver size and the fact that they will not eat as well the first few days in a new home.


In case of emergency have one of these on hand: Honey, Karo/Pancake Syrup, Nutri-Cal or Nutri-Stat.


If your pup acts lethargic or can’t hold his head up act quickly! Nutri-Cal is not going to work if your pup is already crashing.


Nutri-Cal is a preventative not a treatment.


Put a drop about the size of a pea of karo syrup or honey or pancake syrup on your finger to put it on your puppies gums or in the mouth ASAP to make the puppy eat it, and then every 15 min to an hour or until standing and playing on its own.


I’m available 24/7 for emergencies,
