People often ask, "What supplies do I need for my new Chihuahua puppy?" Sometimes it is hard for a new owner to find the correct supplies. We have put Amazon Associate links below for you to find the correct items. While yes I do get a "commission" this is not for me, so far I've made a total of $4.98 in the three months I've had this up but I don't even get that yet as it has to accrue to a certain total - not even sure what that total is. But what I am sure of is, if I have told you to purchase this item or that item or if you aren't even getting a Terlingua puppy but you have a new Chihuahua puppy coming and you want to have the right items on hand, here they are! Hope this helps everyone and I am happy to answer questions about any of these items. If I was going to say what the most iportant items are, I would say the iris pen, pee pads, dyne, and nutridrops.
This is your puppy's playpen. Half of it should be his bedroom, half of it should be his bathroom. This is how he grew up here!
Put one in half your playpen and put another out somewhere in the room with you. Although you would think the small size would be good, this size is better.
This is a high calorie supplement that you can use if your Chihuahua puppy is not eating or stressed. A preventative of problems!
Your puppy is tired, listless, sugaring out - this is your emergency fix. You can also use as preventative in times of stress.
I really like these bowls because they are nonskid and low profile, easy for the Chihuahua to eat and drink from.
This toothpaste is formulated for dogs. Try to keep your Chi's teeth as clean as possible.
This is an awesome shampoo. Leaves the whites white and will help remove tear stains.
I love this set - I have purchased it four times! Great size toys and they hold up well.
This pet cave bed can be out where you are - in your living room or office so that the puppy can go lay down during the day. They LOVE these.
This is used for my ear bracing instructions if you are having trouble getting your puppy's ears up
This is what you remove the medical glue from the puppy's ear with after bracing.
These keep your boy from marking. There are cute ones on etsy also but be sure you get the right measurement.
These gates block off rooms you do not want your Chihuahua to go into. I prefer these over the free standing because the free standing can fall over on your Chihuahua.
Some of my dogs really like this dental toy. Anything to help keep teeth clean which is a challenge with a Chihuahua!
This thundershirt reduces anxiety with thunderstorms and gunshots and fireworks. This really works well on some dogs.
This bag is great - comes in many colors. A wonderful choice for the Chi on the go.
This is a great idea when you are among other dogs or in a place you don't feel safe with your Chihuahua walking.
This is a great product to trip the hair on your Chihuahua's pads so that it does not get dirt, mud, poop, etc attached.
If you happen to make your dog's nails bleed while cutting them, this product stops the nail from bleeding almost instantly.
This is a natural product that works very well for coccidia or other loose stool issues. Better than albon!
This stuffed animal has a heartbeat and a warming pad and it is really good for a stressed puppy.
