1. Environmental Toxin and Degenerative Diseases, Cancer, Allergiesk
We promote awareness of toxic chemicals, found in many rubber and plastic dog toys. These chemicals are known to cause endocrines disorders, cancer, allergies, intestinal illness, autoimmune and degenerative diseases. If it can’t go into a human babies mouth then our Chihuahuas do not chew on it! We buy our dogs organic cotton toys. Any rubber toys we ensure are BPA free. We use real lambs wool from “Holy Lambs Organics” and natural rubber foam pads placed inside of zipper cotton cushions for our dog beds. Non toxic alternatives for our pets are becoming easier to find.


2. Teacup and toy sizes
The teacup below grew to 3 lbs   7 inches length and the Micro 2 lbs 6 inches length. Usually the smallest puppy IS the smallest adult important to you then, buying the smaller puppy would be more logical to lower your risk. Short cobby appleheads weigh a bit more then skinny Taco Bell types. If you like the tall skinny long leg Chihuahuas the weight is lower, but the body in inches is usually larger then the applehead cobby Chihuahua.

3. Puppy Ears Flop is NORMAL to 6 months


I have flown over 300 puppies in 15 years and all landed well. All had no stranger danger fears and liked everyone! This is the diference bewtween puppies under 5 months .airlines have recently stopped flying huge adult dogs and also flat faced cats and dogs in the cargo room, but in my opinion they need to stop flying pets over 7 years old too. I personally feel adult dogs over 1 should not fly in cargo. Adults are not the same as babies. Human babies age 5 months are fine going from one strangers arms to another strangers arms, but that same baby at 1 year will have great anxiety from a stranger. Adult pets suffer too much from major changes and so I am against them flying ADULTS due to EMOTIONAL distress. My cat died of a heart attack at a Vet’s office. Elderly pets ,even in cabin, there is risk of excessive stress and possible heart attacks. Not all passenger flights carry animals because the transport of living animals must be done in a specially made room that is built inside of the airplane. The rooms have the same temperatures and air as passengers. Not all planes have this room so not all airplanes can carry animals. As you look up in the sky and see passenger planes traveling you can’t know if that plane is one that carries animals or not, because you would not know if that particular plane has the special built room for animals. All passenger planes carry luggage but suitcases do not need oxygen nor warm temperatures. IF you hear a rumor that puppies are thrown in with the suitcases then you can inform that person they do not have the proper Informationas A person or animal would die if put in with luggage in the cargo hold. The cargo is a room with warmth and air. Same temps and same air as the passengers have! Just a different room is all.

5. Do not ever view low blood sugar in adults as “normal”.

I do not see low blood sugar in my adults. If an adultha episodes of low blood sugar then there is an undelying health issue as hypoglyememia is not “normal”, In youngr pups the following may cause:

Stress – Stress is a major problem because a stressful puppy may
choose not to eat. This is usually brought on when a puppy enters a new home or new environment of some kind for the first time. The unfamiliarity can make them anxious, or nervous, and so they get the urge not to eat, leading to low blood sugar.

Illness – My Chihuahua puppies for sale, and even the adults, are healthy and strong. While that’s mostly due to the high standards I have for the care of my dogs, not all dog breeders share these same quality standards. As a result poor living conditions and maintained mother dogs, such irresponsible breeders often produce sickly puppies that are more prone to receiving hypoglycemia.

Sickness can also sometimes result even in healthy dogs, and may effect them intestinally. This will cause the puppy or dog to lose their appetite, preventing them from eating, which of course, leads to hypoglycemia.

Hypothermia – A puppy can become hypothermic if their body temperature is lowered from shock or chilling. This has potential to happen during winter time, where the temperature inside your home can become dangerously low for a puppy without a heating pad. A cold puppy will start to shiver in an attempt to get warm, rapidly burning through calories. In time, the body temperature will lower, sugar levels drop, and hypoglycemia sets in. So keep your puppy warm!

6. What is the first sign of illness in a puppy?

Going off feeds is the first sign of trouble. Head right away to the Vet for a fecal check. EXAMINE THAT POOP! If you have solid hard poops and puppy is eating and playing then you are fine. If you see loose stools and puppy is playing then time for a Vet trip and a check of the feces. It is vital to check your puppies stool at the first sign of illness. Worms Parasites and food poisoning bacteria can show up in a stool exam and pave the way for prompt and effective treatment of your puppy.

7.Why Canned Food Is Dangerous!

Warning: Do not use canned dog or puppy foods to feed your puppy. It’s extremely dangerous for tiny puppies. Canned food means any and all soft dogs foods, in the plastic containers and foil pouches. Although bacteria are killed during the canning process, the “toxic poop” made by the bacteria remain.Canned dog and puppy food contain endotoxins from bacteria. High heat is used in the canning process to kill bacteria, but this does not destroy endotoxins ( the poop of bacteria).

8. Never Give A Parvo Vaccine To A Puppy With Diarrhea

The parvo vaccine works by the vaccine lodging in the intestines and stimulating protection in the intestinal lining. If the intestinal lining is inflamed with sores from worms, or parasites, the Parvo vaccine and immune system are unable to work together, with tragic results. A modified live Parvo vaccine may induce a parvo like illness. Informed Vets now call this ” Vaccine induced Parvo”.

9. Vaccinosis may lead to health decline, even death.

Young puppies have immature immune systems and their immune system can become disrupted when hit with several disease at the same time. (vaccines simulate disease as I mentioned earlier ) How often in nature would any animal get hit with more then one disease at the same time? Never. Studies have shown that multiple vaccines given at the same time in puppies under 10 weeks confuse the immune system so that it is unable to produce proper titer levels of protection. Vaccines simulate disease when put into the body. The immune system must respond in a specific way against the disease the vaccine simulated, in order to produce antibodies. According to Dr. Pitcairn, vaccines intended to protect pets against acute natural diseases actually create chronic conditions with features of the disease the vaccine was supposed to prevent. Vaccines contain a number of toxic substances, including viruses, mutated bacteria, immune irritants, foreign proteins, and preservatives.

Symptoms of Vaccinosis

Common vaccine reactions include:
Lethargy Stiffness
Hair loss Lack of appetite
Hair color change at injection site Conjunctivitis
Fever Sneezing
Soreness Oral ulcers

More serious reactions:
Immunosuppression Granulomas and abscesses
Behavioral changes Hives
Vitiligo Facial swelling
Weight loss Allergic hypersensitivity
Reduced milk production (females) Respiratory disease
Lameness Allergic uveitis

Very severe illness:
Injection-site sarcomas (cancer) Glomerulonephritis
Anaphylaxis Myocarditis
Autoimmune arthritis Encephalitis or polyneuritis
Polyarthritis Seizures
Hypertrophic osteodystrophy Abortion
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia Congenital abnormalities
Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia Embryotic (fetal) death
Thyroiditis Infertility

10. Rabies vaccine. Use with caution. Give by itself
 receive many emails every year from families who wished they had seen my warnings first. Their adult dogs died following a rabies vaccine that their Vet had given right along with the yearly booster vaccines. I have lectured on my site for years to never permit a Vet to throw in the rabies shot along with the booster. Rabies should be given by itself and not with any other vaccines. My theory is that Distemper is a neuro disease and so is rabies and the combination of them together can produce paralysis and death in susceptible dogs. There is also the possiblity that the additives in with the rabies can be dangerous. Rabies is a killed vaccine so the body doesn’t pay attention to injection, which is why irritating chemicals added to the vaccine , causing the body to be alarmed and take note.
