How Taking Care of a Senior Chihuahua Changes Parents' Lives Taking care of a senior Chihuahua is very different than caring for a younger dog. There are several health problems that you should be aware of as you watch your pet grow older. Fortunately, many of these issues are treatable. Some dogs never suffer from age-related illnesses, but it's important to pay attention to the changes that happen as your pet gets older. Keeping track of their behavior will help you detect any illnesses early on. A common issue is eye cloudiness. This can happen gradually or suddenly. Regardless, if your senior dog is experiencing eye cloudiness, it's a good idea to take him to the vet. The doctor may recommend that you have the clouding checked out by a veterinary ophthalmologist. Some senior dogs suffer from incontinence, which can be caused by weakening of the bladder or bowel muscles. If this occurs, it's important to give your dog more time to urinate and to give him a chance to eliminate. Another common problem is dental disease. It's important to clean your chihuahua's teeth every few months. If you don't clean them, plaque builds up and can lead to gum disease. Your dog's eyes can cloud over, which can be a sign of cataracts, nuclear sclerosis, or other eye diseases. The doctor may prescribe antihistamines or corticoids to help ease the pain. You should take your dog to the vet twice a year for wellness checks. Besides catching any potential illnesses early, these visits are important to maintaining your dog's overall health.
The title of My Chihuahua'S Dark Secret implies that the little dog breed was once given as a wedding gift in Mexico. While the breed is no longer a common wedding gift, it has become an important symbol in many households. A chihuahua's name is most often pronounced 'Chico.' In 2017, the word 'Chico' was the most difficult to spell in Arkansas. The chihuahua was originally a desert dog that did not enjoy cold or wet weather. Its wild ancestors would climb trees for warmth and protection, so that when their owners passed away, they could return safely to the other side. However, this same trait has made them an ideal lap dog. Their loyalty and affection for their owners has made them popular as lap dogs. The chihuahua is known for its fierce loyalty to its owners. Some dogs have even been known to die of a broken heart if their owners die. They tend to be particularly attached to one person, making it easy for them to develop strong attachments to their owner. Some breed experts believe the chihuahua's burrowing instinct was inherited from its Techichi ancestors, who lived in Central and North America. The chihuahuas buried their heads in sand and vegetation for warmth and protection from predators. While the chihuahua is now considered one of the tiniest breeds in the world, they may have once been much larger. The chihuahua is believed to have been crossbred with the Chinese Crested or the Maltese pocket dog. Despite their small size, they are not without their dark secrets. Their size is one of the most significant causes of their phobias. A chihuahua's true dark secret is a little-known trait. The breed has always been loyal to its owners. There are cases in which the chihuahuas are very sad because their owner has passed away. But the dog's snoring instinct may be a result of its ancestry in the Techichi (North and Central America's largest dog). The chihuahua's name translates to 'dark' in Spanish, and it is a common part of the Chihuahua's heritage. Historically, chihuahuas were much larger than the size of today's chihuahua. Some breed experts suggest that they are descended from the Mexican Techichi, a pocket dog closely related to the Maltese. The chihuahua developed this burrowing instinct from these dogs. This soft spot may stay there throughout their life. While the chihuahua's name is derived from the word 'chihua', in fact, it is a'social parasite' with the same characteristics as the cuckoo. A social parasite, the chihuahua lay its eggs in another bird's nest and then "pushes" its flesh overboard when its parents aren't looking.
