I know this is technically diet related but it affects the health as well. I just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the fact that you shouldn't feed your dogs cooked bones, lots of fat etc. We have a client who leaves her Sheltie Piper, with her friend during the day for 'doggie daycare', well they had a pork roast on a spit (I think that's what it's called when you roast the entire pig at once?)and she let her 2 dogs and Piper feast on the leftovers, cooked bones, fat, skin etc. Well Piper is now in critical condition in the hospital with Pancreatitis that could kill her. She also has some lacerations in her intestines from the cooked bones. So if you are going to feed bones, RAW only, and NO extra fat/pig skin etc for your little doggies. The friend said Piper didn't get as much as the other dogs did. She's only 2 years old. It is going to cost Pipers mom about $600+ to treat her little dog for this. So it's an expensive lesson for her friend to learn (who is helping with the bill). She said her dogs have never had a problem, well all it takes is 1x for it to be potentially deadly. I just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of this as it pertains to your chihuahuas health.
