Chihuahua - upset stomach
Dear Cybervet,

We have a 4,5 month old female Chihuahua (current weight is 900g). She is very playful, and does all the normal things a puppy does. At least once a week she has an upset stomach for no apparent reason (diarhoe, sometimes vomiting as well) - she is still very playful during these periods but obviously refuses to eat. Her diet consisted of Hill Puppy, and sometimes boiled chicken with that. I gradually changed it to Eukanuba Puppy which she seems to love.

She does have a hernia which we will have repaired once she's 6 months old - could this be the cause?

Thanks for your help.

How often does she have the cooked chicken and does this preceed the sickness and diarrhoea? How long has she been on the Eukanuba? Does she still ge the chicken? How large is the hernia and does it ever feel firm?
