chihuahua puppies questions answered!

  • How much should newborn Chihuahua puppies be fed? I have 2 Chihuahua puppies about 3 days old. I've been hand feeding with a syringe because I don't think the mom is feeding then since she's too hyper to be still. I have one of them separated because she's always pushed off to the side. The other one whines constantly until you pick her up or she is near her mom, but I never see her nurse. I have a puppy bottle, but they don't seem to latch on. I don't have a scale so I can't weigh them. So, how much should I be feeding them per day? Thanks in advance.
  • Can I bathe my three week old chihuahua puppies? I have six, three week old chihuahua puppies and I was wondering at what age can I bathe them? And is it safe for me to bathe the mother even though she is still nursing? They do have fleas and that is my main concern. And if I can not bathe them does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do to get rid of the fleas? And with what would you suggest bathing them with?

  • How do you know if Chihuahua puppies will have a short or long coat? I’m not sure if there is a way to know what kind of coat puppies will have before they are born, like if one parent is a long coat and the other is a short coat, how do you know if the Chihuahua puppies will have a short or long coat?
  • Chihuahua puppies are petrified of the leash? I have two 8 month old chihuahua puppies, Harold and Lola. Both of them are scared to death to walk on the leash. We've been leaving collars on them so they get used to it, and they're fine with that.. but when we put the leash on them, both of them start trembling. I brought them in the front of my house and Lola just sat there shaking and started whimpering, and Harold followed my Mom when she started walking across the yard. Any tips?
  • Do you know where I can get a chihuahua puppy from a shelter in Florida? It's not that I can't afford to buy a puppy from a breeder, it's just that I don't want to promote continuing breeding puppies, when some puppies can't even find homes. That's why I won't buy one from a breeder. I was wondering if you knew any shelters that have Chihuahua puppies around the Ocala or Salt Springs area, or a website where I can get better results for a new pup. Maybe even some homeless puppies that simply cannot find homes, or some Chihuahua puppies with special needs, and I know that most people want their dogs to be smart, but I don't care.

  • ways to prevent hypoglycemia in chihuahua puppies? I'll be getting a chihuahua puppy soon and I've heard a lot about hypoglycemia in the breed. Does feeding it a quality dog food every few hours (or free-feeding) generally prevent this or would I really have to give him a little something with sugar in it a few times a day? Also, how about during bedtime? how many hours can the breed comfortably go without food during the night?
