4 week old chihuahua puppy having seizures and the shakes.
My 4 week old puppy got sick out of nowhere.
Her mom stopped feeding them. I have no idea why from one day to the next he started to have seizures and now has the shakes. This year we had a bad case of the fleas and i'm wondering can this cause the puppy to go into this bad state the he is in now what can i do for him i can't afford to take him to the vet.
It's vital to be able to afford veterinary care for your dog and puppies if you decide to breed your dog - otherwise it can end tragically.
This puppy needs to be seen by a veterinarian as there's really no way I can tell you what's wrong with him and you need a professional evaluation.
Tiny breeds can suffer from hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and if the momma suddenly stopped feeding her pups and this little one isn't getting enough nutrition that could be part of the problem. Buying a replacement puppy milk and weaning onto dry kibble soaked in warm water may help.
However, there's no substitute for veterinary help and this puppy is relying on you to take care of him... and it's your responsibility to find a way to get him the help he needs.
I hope you manage to do that and that he's doing much better soon.
