Why is My Tiny Chihuahua Baby Waking Up at Night?

One of the first things you should know about Chihuahua sleeping habits is that they will most likely wake up during the night. This behavior is typical of the breed, and it's natural to expect it. Other factors that can influence your Chihuahua's sleep patterns include their age, lack of physical activity, and medications. If you notice a sudden change in your Chihuahua' sleeping habits, it may be a sign that he or she is suffering from a health problem or is taking medication.

Taking your puppy to the vet for heart tests and routine checkups can also help identify problems. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Chihuahuas when they reach their senior years. Most heart problems are caused by the weakening of the heart valves, which leak blood back around the heart and strain the organ. Most pets with heart valve disease will have a heart murmur or other outward signs of heart disease. If you suspect your Chihuahua is suffering from heart valve disease, he or she will need regular monitoring.

Another reason for your Chihuahua baby waking from a deep sleep is a potential neurological problem. This condition causes the dog to suffer seizures, bad coordination, and swollen head. Unfortunately, there is no way to cure hydrocephalus, so it's best to monitor it carefully.
