A good quality dog food is recommended. Normally, a well balanced dry dog food, like Eukanuba or Science Diet will be just fine. It is always a good idea to check with the breeder to see what they recommend. For more information, visit the Diet section under Health & Care.
No special care or management is required other than an annual check-up, an adequate diet and preventative medications like heart worm prevention and in some areas, flea and tick prevention.
Tibbies eat well for a little dog. Although it varies from dog to dog, they eat around one cup of dog food a day. Some owners prefer to feed them twice a day, others feed them only once a day. It is perfectly OK to leave dry food out all day for those that prefer to nibble. For more information on diet, refer to What to Feed Your Tibetan Spaniel.
Allergies, PRA, (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), Liver Shunt & Hip Dysplaysia are a few of the known health issues with Tibetan Spaniels. Please see the Health section for more information.
