Fulling recovered due to great nursing from Lost and Found Left Baggage Dept Staff SATS, Singapore, Toa Payoh Vets Hypothermia in 6-month-old Chihuahua air cargo Saigon - Munich via Singapore. Toa Payoh Vets

"What should we do?" the staff asked. There was an older lady who was concerned enough to bring the dog's wet sweater to wash and dry using the bathroom's hot air hand dryer. The Chihuahua was dried similarly.
Overnight, the SATS staff made sure the Chihuahua was dosed with a bit of water mixed with maple syrup from a fast food chain. He was also pinched on the neck skin hourly. There was a written schedule pasted on top of the desk. The room, filled with 15 helpful and caring staff was fortunately not freezingly cold unlike some offices.  The white light on the table top kept the Chihuahua warm.

Saigon-Munich via Singapore by air cargo. One collapsed Chihuahua (bottom) due to cold temperature at cargo hold of plane.  Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) called a vet. However, the Chihuahua did not wake up  after fluid therapy. 

Not permitted to leave the airport due to quarantine regulations. The vet tried to revive the dog for one hour.  It was futile. He would blink his eyes and then went into a deep sleep. Doubted he would live.

"He might survive if you all nurse him well," the vet said to the staff.  None had experience.  So, there was not much optimisim.

At 8 a.m, the SATS officer phoned the vet: "The Chihuahua is still alive." He phoned again to make sure that the vet turned up.

The vet woke up the dog and put him near ground up dried dog food mixed with maple syrup. He was ravish and ate a lot.  Drank some water too.

Shipped back to Saigon. An earlier batch of 3 Chihuahuas sent to Munich. 1/3 died on arrival. So, the owner did not want the Chihuahuas to go to Munich. 
The 2nd Chihuahua (right) had breathing difficulty and soft stools but had normal temperature. Both were flown back to Saigon at 3 p.m on the same day.
