July 5, 2012

Continues from Part 1

Some of the most dangerous foods that Chihuahuas can consume are your everyday fruits and vegetables. Tomatoes, grapes, raisins, avocados, apples, and onions can all be life threatening for a Chihuahua. Remember, keep all fruits and vegetables away from your Chihuahuas all the time!

I bet you've probably heard never to feed your dog chocolate, because it can kill them. Well, most chocolate that is in the typical candy will not be life threatening, some chocolate, such as bakers chocolate can cause death for a Chihuahua. This is something you should be sure to keep away from your Chihuahua, even if it's not the dangerous kind.

Feeding Your Chihuahua - Chihuahua ClothesNot only should you avoid feeding your Chihuahua table food, but you should also not be feeding them bones. That's right, even bones can be dangerous to a Chihuahua. Once a Chihuahua starts chewing on them, they can splinter and cut their insides if they swallow it.

Sticks can be just as bad as bones. If you see your Chihuahua chewing on a stick, stop them immediately. It's best to never let them get in the habit of chewing them.

You can still spoil your Chihuahua once in a while with some cooked, skinless, and boneless beef. Just don't add anything else to add, such as salt and seasoning. Trust me, your Chihuahua will still love it.
