Default 2lb chi 8 months

Hi everyone. I've had chihuahuas for nearly 18 years now but my newbie is a little girl who barely tops the scales at 2 lb and is 9 months old. I am struggling to keep her at that weight with Royal canine and multiple muscular skeletal and coat supplements. She is the tiniest little thing. I also have a fully grown 6 lb neutered boy who is very sweet natured. However, I am scared to let them play together in case she is injured. Does anyone else have experience of coping with such a tiny baby?

I've never had a Chi that small.
Is she willing to eat more than you already give her?
Buddy Bear was 4 pounds but his issue was that if I fed him more than "normal" he would skip the next meal/meals.
He's now older and finally is at 5 pounds

Hi! I give her several small meals a day. She is on Royal Canine and synoquin from the vet. She never eats all her food but the vet said this is because she is so tiny. She was the runt of the litter and the vet says she is getting healthier all the time. Not bigger unfortunately! Just want my two chi's to be able to play but she really is teent tiny! I'll put up a pic or video of her with her dad. ?

Oh dear. I don't seem to be able to add a pic either. Can anyone tell me how to add a pic or video? I'd appreciate it!

I can only speak from the experiences of my own chis, and all are different. That said, I have had neutered males with smaller chis and the males have never hurt the females even in play mode. If fact, I have found the females to be dominant over males in our home.

To add pics to the forum, you can create a free photobucket account, upload your pics to photobucket, and then use the IMG codes to put the pics on the forum.

Thanks chideb. Yes. Actually I noticed when they were on my knee that even tho he is a lot bigger, my neutered boy takes a submissive role while she goes crazy on him! Fingers crossed that's a good sign. I'm just worried he might get sick of her trying to climb all over him and get too rough. I'll let you know how it goes between them. Thanks for your advice!
