Ok, I'm a registered veterinary technician. What your puppy died from was a condition called hypogylcemia. It's very common in very small dogs and pups. Is what happens is that they need to eat alot more than a larger dog does to keep their glucose levels from dropping to low, once that happens they need alot and I mean alot of care. They have to be force fed, or even a feeding tube put in. However, if they get immediate care alot of them can pull through it, but it does take some time for them to recover. It can also be a recurring condition if not controlled.
