Dog food should be completely soaked for the little Chihuahua, preferably four times a day, about 20 grams each time. As the Chihuahua grows, you can increase the dog food appropriately, not too much at once
Slowly start eating hard dry dog food until 6 months of age when you can gradually increase it. An eighth of a full stomach is appropriate.

Feeding is best done on a dry diet, with some wet feed in moderation. Chihuahuas are very tasty, but care must be taken not to overfeed the dog to avoid gaining weight.
Give him 60-90 grams of meat a day. Large Chihuahuas only need about 150 grams of meat a day, plus a similar amount of vegetables and cookies.

At this point, senior dog food should be fed, or else calcium should be artificially supplemented while maintaining a certain amount of exercise. Otherwise, it can lead to osteoporosis and increased incidence of bone spurs and fractures.
