Dog Food (Canine Diet and Nutrition)/Chihuhua help


I have a Chihuahua X papillion mix, she is 6lbs and almost 4 years old. Currently, feeding her is a nightmare and I worry she isn't getting the proper nutrition she needs for her specific breed and small intestnes. She currently only eats a small handful of dry food (puppy) as thats all she'll eat per day, with a small ammount of fresh chicken. Nothing else works, I have tried every dry/wet/organic food available. Is this harmful?

Will she not eat adult food?  It could be that she is getting enough with the chicken you are giving her.  You should try a supplement.  I recommend NuVet see there website for info and toll free number.  http.//

Also, try feeding her twice a day and give her the recommended amount of food devided for each meal.  If she does not eat all the food within 10 minutes pick it up and wait until dinner time and do the same.  She may start to realize she needs to eat when the food is advailbe to her.

Hope this helps.
