Q. My Chihuahua is 4 years and 3 months old. He has been vomiting for about two weeks. What might cause a Chihuahua to vomit? Thanks

Answered By

A. Many problems can cause vomiting. 2 weeks is a long time especially for something so small. You should really take it to your vet for a full examination and tests. It maybe something as simple as a sensitive tummy and that the food doesn't agree with it. But as it has been going on for so long you need to go to your vet to get to the bottom of it.
