Question "What to feed the Yorkshire Terrier" must be decided before the puppy appears in your house. You can choose a dry food or a “natural”, but feeding York from the table is definitely not worth it: it can result in health problems and a deterioration in the quality of the coat.
For feeding Yorkshire Terriers, the general rules for feeding dogs are valid. However, there are feeding characteristics that are specific to Yorkshire terriers.
1. The frequency of feeding the Yorkshire Terrier depends on the age of the dog.
|Yorkshire Terrier Age||Feeding frequency|
|3 to 6 months||4 times a day|
|6 to 12 months||3 times a day|
|Older than 12 months||2 times a day|
2. If you are a supporter of the "natural", then the meat should be at least half the daily diet of the Yorkshire Terrier.
3. Yorkshire Terrier meat is boiled.
4. The amount of food for the Yorkshire Terrier is calculated as follows
|Yorkshire Terrier Weight||Food volume|
|Every 500 grams of weight||1 tablespoon|
That is, the Yorkshire Terrier weighing 3 kg eats 6 tablespoons of food.
5. Lack of fat in York's diet can lead to flaking of the skin, rash, or sores.
6. A lack of sodium and chlorine when feeding the Yorkshire Terrier causes dry skin and hair loss, a lack of copper leads to a loss of pigmentation.
7. The lack of zinc can be judged by the appearance of plaques, crusts in the basal part of the hair, in the corners of the mouth, around the eyes, ears, etc.
8.The unbalanced intake of iodine compounds when feeding the Yorkshire Terrier worsens the coat, making it brittle and short.
9. If you have problems, you may want to “stuff” your pet with vitamins. However, this should not be done without consulting a veterinarian. Hypervitaminosis, like hypovitaminosis, can lead to sad consequences. Therefore, with the slightest trouble you should contact your veterinarian.
