Never too late Paula. I actually only bath mine 2-3x a year unless I have to for some special reason. They really don't get that dirty.

I don't know if it is too late for me to reply to this?? I hope not. I just remember that our vet told us Chihuahuas should NOT be washed often. The vet gave us a mild shampoo to use, and said we should only wash once a month at the MOST. He has never scratched and does NOT have any dry skin patches at all.

I'm hoping this helps you. GOOD LUCK!! emoticon

Wow, tough one. I have one who is touchy, but not that bad. I did find a shampoo that helped mine, of all places at Menards. It's by Sergeant's and called Fur So Fresh- medicated for dry, itchy flaky skin. Green tea.
Can't help with amounts. How much does he weigh? Is he thin or heavy? If nothing else you may need to figure out what his weight should be and then making sure he has enough to eat, find where he starts to become fat and cut back slowly from there?
Wish I could be of more help.
