Why Does my Chihuahua Shake?

Your Chihuahua shakes due to cold, anxiety, excitement, or because it’s getting old. However, if your Chihuahua shakes and none of these reasons seem to be why they’re shaking, it’s best to book a trip to see your vet.

For example, like other small dogs, Chihuahuas tend to have a fast metabolism, which means their blood sugar levels can drop to dangerously low levels, and shaking is a symptom of low sugar levels. To avoid this, it’s advisable to divide your adult dog’s daily food allowance into four small meals.
