With Lady being a diabetic and insulin dependant, I always have to worry about low blood sugar and so-called insulin comas. I have to keep a quick "sugar fix" with me at all times so I have packets in my purse, the glove compartment of my car, a pocket of her carrier, etc.

Besides jelly, those little packets of honey will work. Pancake syrup packets from McDonald's or Burger King are great, too. Another one is a tube of cake decorating frosting, believe it or not.

The sugar will give them a quick high and get them out of the crisis, but as Lucy Lou says, they need a meal afterwards or they can crash again.
