Welcome to CP,it's all very strange for her so take it easy with her and let her come out on her own,maybe tempt her with a treat ? give her a cuddly toy to snuggle up too.

Mine didn't eat or drink water for the fist day and ahlaf. I had to force feed and water him and give him Nutri Cal. Though, as soon as I got a treat out for him, he was all trotting around.

Hello and welcome! I'm also new here and live in Suffolk! Whereabouts in Norfolk do you live?

Hope the dental checkup goes well tomorrow. My 6 year old boy had to have 6 teeth extracted last year as they were loose. Apparently this is fairly normal for chihuahuas, they can be prone to dental problems. My boy had bad teeth as a result of a poor diet in his previous homes (he was sadly moved around a lot and mistreated :( ) When I adopted him he was on Bakers, and had the worst breath in history. I put him on Royal Canin Sensible but he didn't like it so now he's on James Wellbeloved and he scoffs it down a treat.

Enjoy being a chihuahua mommy - it's wonderful.

Pics of Honey please :)

Maybe you can give her a little high quality canned food until she gets that tooth pulled and she recovers.
Oh, and welcome!

Sounds dodgy to me - like my boys 2nd owner, when she found out I had him and had neutered him she started having a go at his 3rd owner (!!!- the one I got Buddy from, a nice family) for letting me have him and not giving him back to her - she had used him as stud and neglected him so bad. I quickly microchipped Buddy to prove he was mine. Would never in a million years time let him go back to that place!
