Hello!

I joined this site today because I noticed a lot of good information when researching about my new Chihuahua. I honestly never thought I would own a Chihuahua as I have always been drawn to big dogs. But my sister was not able to give her Chihuahua (Mira) the attention she needed and demanded so I took her. Owning a Chihuahua has been nothing but amazing. Mira is the sweetest dog and I find myself saying the words "Awww" "too cute" and "ridiculous" all the time. She has won my heart for sure.

The reason I was doing research is that she just got her shots two days ago and she wont move, eat or drink. The doctor said this was normal but i am starting to worry as it has been 48 hours. Any good ideas on how to get your dog to drink something? I have resorted to putting water and peanut butter on a spoon!

Also...what is going on with these chihuahua snuggies! I want one!!! :)

Hope was fine after her shots. Perhaps a bit tired.

Not certain how old she is but chis are susceptible to hypoglycemia when they are young, so I'd definitely watch her. A little honey on your fingertip may perk her up, but I'd schedule a return visit if you can.

Welcome! I'm a newbie to the site too. I also didn't think I'd have a Chi but my husband loves them and I'm completely in love now too. :)

Welcome to the group!
Is she pottying and walking ok, or literally not moving?? That sounds very worrisome. I would take her into the vets, ideally a different vet!

Sounds like your little one is having a reaction to the shots. In the future I would avoid giving shots to her. I would be calling back the vet and demand something to help her feel better. If worst comes to worse You can give her some baby aspirin (1/4-1/2 depending on her weight) and that may help her feel better. You can syringe feed or eye dropper feed her water if needs be. BTW Welcome...I too was one who never thought I would EVER own a chi, now I can't imagine my life without them.

Welcome to the forum. :)

That is definitely not normal at all. I would get her back to a vet, a different one preferably, asap. Please let us know how she is doing.
