FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much food should I feed my Chihuahua?
Every dog has a different sweet spot - this has to do with things like age, genetics, lifestyle, digestibility and quality of their food, and any health issues. There are formulas that we and your vet use to estimate where to start, taking these things into consideration. After that, the ultimate answer comes from this question: Is your dog maintaining a healthy, lean body weight? If the answer is YES, you are feeding the perfect amount! If the answer is NO (they are getting a little too skinny or too chubby), then we need to make some gradual adjustments.
**Keep in mind that for tiny dogs, gradual adjustments can mean very small changes (a couple pieces of kibble), so it's not a bad idea to get a kitchen scale that can measure in grams to make these small changes
How many times should a Chihuahua eat?
For most adults, splitting their daily recommended kibble amount into two meals is perfect. Some Chihuahuas prefer to have three meals a day (their stomachs are wee)
When should I switch my Chihuahua from puppy to adult food?
We want to wait until skeletal growth is nearly or completely finished before making this transition -- for most Chihuahuas, around 10-12 months is a good age to transition. Since every individual can grow a little differently, 10-12 months is also a great time to check in with your vet to get a direct opinion on your dog's growth trajectory.
What health issues should I be aware of with my Chihuahua?
All dogs can get all dog diseases. That said, Chihuahuas are known to be prone to becoming overweight or obese. This is the most common disease you need to be aware of, and it can not only shorten their lifespan but also make other diseases worse. Other conditions they have predilections for include periodontal disease, heart disease, orthopedic problems with their hips and knees, cataracts, corneal ulcers, bladder stones, cryptorchidism (failure of one or both testicles to descend -- this can lead to cancer if not addressed), neurological issues (usually something they are born with), pregnancy issues, tracheal collapse.
My Chihuahua has bad teeth - can they eat this food?
The short answer is: maybe.
Dental disease can be a big problem for your dog, especially if it is advanced. Sometimes, bad teeth need soft food rather than hard food, because hard food can be painful or impossible to eat. Tiny dogs like Chihuahuas are particularly prone to dental problems and disease because their mouths are too small for all their teeth, and this causes all kinds of complications over time.
