How to Take Care of a Chihuahua

Chihuahuas are one of the smallest breeds of dog available out there. Because of their size, you as a pet owner must be mindful and committed enough to shower your beloved pet with enough attention as well as care. Small dog breeds such as chihuahuas should be handled well and appropriately compared to larger dog breeds. For instance, roughhousing should not be done with the cute and delicate chihuahuas. You should keep this in mind particularly when you have other dogs that are of larger breeds as well as young kids in your household. Chihuahuas are small and quite fragile, particularly the head section of the chihuahua. You should not put a chihuahua in high places such as a cabinet, a table or chair, or in a steep staircase so you can avoid unnecessary injuries. Aside from this, chihuahuas have slender bodies and thin hair coats, which means they are more at risk of getting hypothermia.

Make sure your chihuahua gets regular health checks with the recommended veterinarian New Orleans, LA so he stays healthy.
