i am coming into possession of a 8 wk old chihuahua. i have not had a dog since i was a child. What do i do to take care, what food brand do you use, wet or dry dog food. what shots do dogs need? I am looking forward to getting her btw.
About the shot. Find a Vet and they will tell you what shots he or she will need. When my chihuahuas were babies I put a cat collar with a bell on them. They are so small I was afraid I would step on one of them. Puppies do not have good teeth. Soft food at first.

You'll need to take the pup to a vet for the shots and he will tell you there what he needs. Along with shots are heart worm meds and flea preventatives. That visit never fails to put a dent of at least $150 in my bank. You will probably discuss when to spay/neuter too and they may go ahead and set a date to do that. As for food, I feed taste of the wild. Supermarket brands of food are junk. They are full of fillers such as corn and by-products that dogs are often allergic to. visit. www.dogfoodanalysis.com for reviews of different brands of food. Then look at your pet stores to see what is available to you.

Next question overall
At what age did you take your child to the dentist for the first time?
