I live in pa, my dog tego is always chewing himself. Any help with skin problems. The vet wants 700 to test for allergies and @ 700 if he is for the 1st shots. That is air and food allergies both. Please help if you can. I give him 1/2 children benadryl when it gets real bad.

    Change your dogs diet try a food called Natural Balance it has limited ingredients and don't give him nothing else, also stay away from chicken ingredients I have a rottie has skin problems it worked.

    Ther is a website called allergicpet.com they sell a herbal medicine that I have my chihuahua on for skin problems which can run in blue chihuahuas try it.

    It's probably food or flee allergies..My dog only get Natural Balance (by Vandyke) Fish and Sweet potato (Petco has it)..I tried chicken and beef and that really made it bad (all the hormones and crap they put in the dog food) and in the spring she only need 1 flee treatment and she's good. It take a while for it to clear up. but I bathe her in a Tea Tree shampoo to calm the skin.

    Our 3 year old long hair female chihuhua Precious, has brought nothing but pure joy in our lives. My wife, Ella, and I are retired and just love her so much.
    She is very smart. She is strickly a house dog except when we go for a daily walk. She is not a barker like some small dogs. She is friendly with strangers but rather stay close to my wife. She really knows how to share her love. During the day light hours she would rather go for walk with me or ride in my pickup truck. But, at night she is moma's girl. At our age we are blessed to have her.

    I just bought a chihuahua a 9 wk. old. The first thing I noticed about her is that she was chewing on herself all the time. Two days later I went to Pet Smart and bought some shampoo for dogs that have sensitive skin (has oatmeal in it) and I bathed her in it. She instantly stopped!! And here I thought there was some kind of allergy problem and was going to have to put her on some kind of med. I'm so glad I tried that first!

    Try feeding him a food called natural balance get it at pet co it has limited ingredience or a product called skin e z on the internet

    You could try a food, like Solid Gold for small dogs (pink bag). It has ingredients that are good for allergic dogs: no corn or wheat, etc. They sell it at Petco, but you can find it a little cheaper online. It is expensive, but you just feed it twice a day, dry, by weight.

    My Yorkie also has allergies. Check with your vet to see if he will give you a prescription for Simplicef. The cost is fairly reasonable and it works really well for my dog.

We got our first Lhasa two months ago. This was before I learned much about them. I have to say that much of what I have read is true about Lulu, my 3 year old female. She is a great watch dog and is extremely loyal to us, but is very skidish towards others. She does fine with our cats but is hesitant about our other dog. He is an Australian shepard and is very energetic, she is growing more tolerant of him but usually turns her nose to him. Although most of what I read is true she loves my kids and all the friends they invite over. She has turned into one of our most loved pets.

I've grown up with Chihuahuas. I got my first one about 4 years ago and since that shes had two liters of pups. My dad kept one of the first ones. He was a long hair and we all loved him very much. Just last friday he got hit and dad is so upset over it so we're trying to get a male long hair to breed with Misty, my dog. Wish me luck

We adore our big wooly bear dog. Pablo, our 3 year old Giant Schnauzer, follows us from room to room, obeys very well (except for the occasional selective hearing if he air sniffs an irresistable scent). Giants are the absolute best breed for any family who desires a dog that will be actually under your feet. . . literally!!

I want to get a bull terrier and a friend has one that's nine months old... I'm afraid that's too old ... What do you think ?? Will it be hard to train? Can I teach it a new name ? Could it be dangerous around kids??

    The benefit to nine months is you can see/hold/watch etc the pups personality. 9 months is pretty young and at least at that age, there should be bladder control. Is it housebroken? Bull Terriers are usually pretty stubborn, independent dogs that require a strong, consistent trainer. Can you teach it a new name - easily. Could it be dangerous around kids? Yes. Any animal can be dangerous but it seems the bull terrier has the leading reputation in this regard. Some dogs are much easier to have around children and are known to get along great with children. The bull terrier is not one of them. They require strong leadership, strong training, strong discipline and they are not inclined to adapt well to new people so they require a lot of socialization. They do not like commotion. They prefer a consistent, organized lifestyle. They can be snappy and they frequently snap without provocation. Some folks absolutely love and adore their bull terriers but they are devoted, patient, and excellent trainers.

I have a rescued red heeler mix we found in a garbage bag with a rope tied around his neck and a rope tied around the bag. He was a puppy, and he has been neutered and has all shots and is healthy. He will snap for no apparent reason and attack another dog. All my dogs are rescues, neutere or spayed with all shots up to date. I had to take a little chihuahua rat terrier mix that came up to our house to a no kill shelter, because Champ tried to kill him. What can I do to help this situation. We love Champ and he loves us.

    This little fella had a rough start and hate to hear these kind of things. Some folks are just cruel. The Heeler/Cattle Dog mix is an independent breed and they don't really do well with other dogs. Some will become agressive with other dogs or with people they don't know. They also are usually a one person dog. It is also a herding animal or a working dog and they do snap/growl/circle or whatever to keep the HERD in line. It is their nature. I would consult a behaviorist or a trainor as you would be trying to stop a natural behavior that is a part of this pup. Genetics for centuries. You see Chihauhau and Champ sees stranger/threat. I wouldn't know of anything else to do accept consult a behaviorist/trainer or allow Champ to be an enviornment where his genetics and protective behaviors are a plus.
