How to Find a Veterinarian for Your Chihuahua
Part of the Chihuahuas For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Taking responsibility for bringing a Chihuahua into your home means taking responsibility for your dog’s health, so you need to find a vet as soon as your pooch comes home — or even sooner if your pup is still getting puppy shots. Sharpen your search for a good vet with one or more of the tactics in the following list:
Ask your Chihuahua’s breeder. Even if the breeder lives far away, he or she may have sold pups to people in your area who can recommend a vet.
When you see people walking Toy dogs in your neighborhood, ask them what vets they use and if they’re satisfied with the quality of care.
Call the nearest major veterinary hospital for recommendations.
