Thank you so much for sharing this Stacy. I can't imagine how scared and upset you and Marina must have been. And look how y'alls love, caring and KNOWLEDGE paid off in that beautiful girl!

Boy, what a scary thing!! I'm so glad Elena recovered fully and has no emotional damage from this experience especially at such a young age. She is a gorgeous girl. Thank you for sharing this with us.

I didn't know about Elena's rough start. I'm so glad she came through so well, and that you knew what to do to help her. She's a little doll, and I'm sure she will be Champion Elena very soon.

I never knew Elena went through this. So happy that she bounced back and it didn't affect her in the long term. Her coat looks so stunning now!
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this. I'm sure this will be very beneficial especially for new Maltese puppy owners to be wary of getting a pup less than 12 weeks old.

I would have never thought Elena went through this horrible experience as a puppy. She is so gorgeous and has a great smile! She's a little trooper for sure.

Thanks for sharing such valuable information. I hope it gets pinned for new owners to see.
So glad Elena had your experience otherwise the outcome might have been different.

I'll be happy to "sticky" it -- do you think in the health section?

Do you think the picture of the white gums and the video should be in the main post so people don't have to scroll down? I can't edit it, otherwise I'd do it! Thanks for making it a sticky!

Stacy, thanks so much for posting about this..I had no idea that they can lose their coats from having hypoglycemia-it IS scary, oh my! You have done such a great job with Elena-she is so gorgeous.. You would never know she was so ill and lost her hair. Her coat is beautiful. I'm so glad she made it through and I know you are.
