I have a 6 yr old female long hair chihuahua. She is a very sweet dog, good with kids, & a great companion dog. Her only problem is that she vomits all the time. It is the worst at night when she's sleeping. It wakes her up and she usually doesn't even have time to get off the couch or out of her bed. Mostly it is a thick, clear fluid but sometimes contains her dog good. I've banned people food treats and feed her dried food for a sensitive stomach. The vet has scoped her & found nothing. Does anyone have a solution? She's ruining my carpet!

    I would suggest your vet check for tumors around the bottom of the stomach. I had a minpin that did the same thing. He had a tumor that was causing it. The tumor also cause chronic pancreatitis. Something to check out.

    Might be allergies to the foods that she is eating, read the diet for these dogs on this website, beef is not recommended.

    My chihuahua had a problem with that too, but I switched up his feeding schedule and it seems to do the trick. He would wake me up early in the morning heaving on my chest! I recommend feeding her smaller portions more often.

We have a long hair chihuahua she is so sweet, but the only problem we're
having is she has real long hair on her butt so everytime she has a bowel
movement it sticks and hangs in her hair. I've tried cutting it but it still sticks. Any ideas please help.

    You have seen a poodle with the typical poodle cut? I have seen that on the long haired chihauhua. Literally from the hip bones and down to the knees the pup is shaved - completely shaved. From the back knees on down, there is hair. The tail except for the tip is also shaved. I never thought about there being a actually reason for this - just thought the people had a preferance. If I was having the problem you describe - that is what I would do - different but cute look.

I have a precious chin he is almost a year old. I buy him dog food that has no corn or corn gluten he was having digestive problems since the dog food change he does great. Had a little trouble potty training until he was about 6 months now we have no problems at all. He loves to play with his chew toys run through the house like he is chasing a rabbit so cute to watch. Wonderful companion.

    They are adorable - and I am glad you enjoy.

    I have a championship bloodline Japanese Chin, you could check it out on my faccebook. Majority dry dog food are not good, that is why dog owners are always told not to change dry food easily, most of them is easy to cause various digestion problems. The final solution is raw beef recipe. Let me know if you are interested in the recipe.

I have a 4yr old long hair chi (Cody). He was a stray. It was love at first sight! He is very skittish when going outside to do his "business". He, sometimes, walks with a limp. Our vet says his kneecap slips out of place and he has to stretch it back into place. He says this is common to chi's. We have not gotten a second opinion, yet. Has anyone else had this problem? I hate seeing Cody in any discomfort.

    I haven't heard of this which doesn't mean it is not true. However, I would try a different vet. I would get a second opinion.

    I have a two year old long hair Chi, and yes my dog has this problem. I was told that it was common in small dogs. My vet told me to make sure he doesn't jump from high places. The sofa is fine but my bed is not.
  • KittyandChichi - 2011-08-28
    Yes, absolutely a common issue with chihuahuas and many small breeds. It is known as luxating patella. Sometimes a surgical procedure can help, other times it is enough to watch your small dogs activity and be sure they do not do anything that will aggravate the situation. (Jumping off of high surfaces, running on unstable ground, etc.) I have a five-ish year old purebred longcoat chi and he LOVES trying to be airborne off of the back of the sofa or a patio table. So far his strong genes have preserved his patellas but I still have to keep a close eye on how high he goes.

    Is he over weight? This will make it slip and if not try a product called NUpro find in pet- co or pet stores

I do too! My dog is supposed to be a pom, as well. How can I tell the difference between a pom and a long hair chihuahua?

    I rescued Titus from going to the pound. The vet says he is most likely a long-haired chihuahua or may have some Pomeranian in him. He is for sure the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can't believe how he came into my life. I've never had an inside dog before but he is the bomb! In looking at pictures of both breeds I think my Titus looks more like a long-haired chihuahua but he seems to be larger than the breed typically is. Although he was skinny and malnourished when I got him, he still weighed 12 lbs. Only had him 1 month and he is 13 lbs. I know this isn't answering your question because I too would like to know how you tell the difference.
  • KittyandChichi - 2011-08-28
    Sometimes you can tell by the ear size and definition. Or by the muzzle or chest cavity definition. I see many pom-chi combo dogs that their owners identify as one or the other but someone familiar with either or both breeds will know is a combo. My five year old longcoat chihuahua is DNA certified as a purebred but people often think he is a pom. (Including a highly reputed chihuahua breeder in my state!) If you are really determined to find out, you can get the DNA testing kit off the web for about $70. It's fun to do and I only did it to prove the all-knowing breeder she didn't know as much as she thinks.
    Also, longcoat chis are the result of breeding strategy which means somewhere back up the dogs genetic line a different breed was introduced in order to get that long hair effect. More than any other long coated breed the pomeranian has been used for this purpose. (Likely because Poms and Chis are so similar in many ways.)

    Poms have a much thicker coat where as a chihuahua has a much thinner long coat and chihuahua have feathers which poms don't. Best bet look on internet for breed info
