Have you had your vet check her teeth? Chihuahuas are notorious for having bad teeth so she may not be eating because her mouth hurts. If Izzy's teeth are ok, I'd have your vet run labwork on her to see if she has a disease process that is causing her to not want to eat, such as liver or kidney disease. - Dr. C

Hi Patricia Snyder,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Izzy. How is everything going?
