What is the best food for chihuahua puppies?


Answer by  crash0708 (83)

For a chihuahua puppy, the best food would be a high protein mix formulated for small breed dogs. The kibbles are usually small in size to help with the digestion in relevance to the size of the dog. Make sure the ingredients are of a higher quality and do not contain "animal by-products".

Puppies generally need a richer food source than grown dogs since they are still growing and developing. The best food I've found is Science Diet. Their kibbles are small and easy for the small mouth to chew. I also recommend feeding soft food for a while before the kibble.

Since Chihuahuas are small i suggest you get him some puppy dog food. The puppy dog food is softer than regular dog food and has smaller pieces in the bag.

Actually, the best diet for a chihuahua pup is a real food diet. Start with some sautéed lean meat, add a cooked starch such as rice or potatoes, then add a sweet vegetable like peas or carrots. Otherwise a high quality commercial dog food made for small puppies is appropriate. Whichever you choose, be sure it's nutritionally sound.

Since they are so small you would first want to of course feed them a food specifically for puppies to ensure that they are getting enough protein. Then make sure that you chose a food that is for small puppies so that the pieces are small enough for them to swallow and not get choked.

The best food to feed any puppy in my oppinion would be puppy food, perferable dry because canned food is not good for any dog.

As far as wet food is concerned the best dog food for small dogs is Cesar dog food. It's specially formulated for small dogs and it does come in puppy formula too. Choose a dry food with small chunks so the puppies don't choke.

I think the best food to feed chihuahua puppies is small kibble in a bag. This is not to big for the puppies to eat and is easier to digest then canned food.


Answer by  Kaydee (252)

As with any puppy, you want to look for a good quality growth diet in which the first 2 or 3 ingredients are a meat or meat by-product.
