Joyce, the portion size depends on their breed, chihuahua’s average is between 2-6 lobs so yes they are both indeed on the heavy side and should loose some weight. For a dog who should be 6 lbs they need no more than a cup per day (on the liberal side). Read more in our how much to feed dogs article.

As far as lite recipes, check out our article on homemade dog recipes for some healthy alternatives to caned dog food and kibble.

Hope that helps and good luck with the weight loss!
