The trembling of the Chihuahua

This race by characteristics is prone to tremors. Is true, however, that not all individuals will tremble with the same frequency and intensity, so there will be puppies that do so occasionally and others passed practically all day with tremors.
Always this has worried much to their owners, thinking that the phenomenon is due to a serious health problem. Error! The tremor of a Chihuahua doesn't necessarily mean illness.

So here are some of the most repeated reasons that these small dogs tremble:
1 I AM COLD
All dogs tremble when they are cold, but in the case of the Chihuahas this is compounded, because its reduced weight and fur protects him rather little of low temperatures. Moreover, its Mexican provenance is a genetic adapted to high temperatures and not to cold climates.
2 I HAVE PEE
It is their way of telling you that you need to go for a walk because much pipi is done and can not endure is more!
3. MY METABOLISM IS VERY HIGH
This means that they consume energy (calories) until they are at rest, therefore tend to have cold more easily.
4 I have fear, anxiety, or stress
Just like humans, in situations of stress or when they feel fear, the Chihuahas tremble. Why you should not scare you if your dog starts to shake when a huge St. Bernard is approached or when you riñes him for having made some mischief.
5 I'M HAPPY AND EXCITED
Excitation by the joy that can feel at one time may cause trembling.
6 I AM SICK
As we said at the beginning does not always tremor is synonymous with disease or problem... but sometimes it is. Therefore you must be careful with these little if we detect that never cease to tremble because in the end, it could be something serious.
There are two health problems can manifest itself through tremors in this race:
-Hypoglycemia: when there are small amounts of glucose (sugar) in the blood of the animal. They manifest this disease with tremor, drowsiness, and little activity. So to detect this behavior should go to the vet so that you dictate the solution or relevant solutions.
-Food allergies: if you detect tremors occur just after their food intake... worry! Certainly in the case of some kind of food allergy and you should go to the vet. But fear not! Simply identify the component that your beloved pet is allergic to offer another type of food. And problem solved!
In this article we have seen that the Chuhuahua tremor is more frequent and normal from what many of their owners believe, but that should not hesitate if it detects an excess of the phenomenon, in go to the vet as soon as possible to so rule out any health problems.
