im glad hes doing better, chihuahuas are HIGHLY prone to retained baby teeth, im suprised the vet didnt pull them when he was neutered...(if hes not yet neutered ask your vet how much itll cost for each tooth, its usually minimal and theyll pull any left that need to be removed) vixie has retained baby teeth but the vet doesnt want to pull them becasue there not causeing her issues and she prefers not to put toy breeds under unless absolutly nessicary.

Ruby has retained baby teeth too, hers however are icky (common in cresteds too) and as soon as i can afford she WILL be going under to have the extra pulled and a good cleaning on the rest.

I wonder if other dogs think Cresties are members of some weird religious cult?

Again, Foxy, he's not a chihuahua, he's a toy fox terrier. Yes, they're similar, but it sounds like you think he is a chihuahua.

Charlie is under 8lbs and eats 1/2 cup a day of Innova, sometimes he skips meals as well but I like to add something to moisten it a bit, water, yougart, oil, unsweetened apple sauce etc

Agreed, any pups that I have had (jrts usually weighing about 6-8 lbs at that age) along with the one adult that I have that is 8. 8 lbs all eat about 1/3 to 1/2 cup twice a day. Even my hardest keepers as adults or the largest 17 lb adult that I have eat a max of 1 cup a day of a high quality dog food.
And most of these dogs are in training and competing hard.
