How to Find a Veterinarian for Your Chihuahua

Part of 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.
