Yorkies need regular exercise to ensure continuing good health.
Take your Yorkshire Terrier puppy for walks, run around in the
yard. Try anything to get him up and moving.
Ticks Off Your Yorkshire Terrier
Parasites such as fleas and ticks can cause serious diseases.
Keep your Yorkie puppy free from parasites by using the method
recommended by your veterinarian. Frontline is a great
product that we recommend.
Work with your veterinarian or breeder to find the food that is
best for your Yorkie's age, size and activity level. Keep the
diet consistent. Always provide plenty of fresh, clean water.
If you decide to change the puppy's food, please make sure that
you do it slowly. Drastical changes can make your
Yorkie puppy ill.
Yorkie Puppies never outgrow the need to chew. Protect your
possessions by providing a variety of chew toys.
Protect Your Yorkshire Terrier From Poisons
Make sure that your home and yard are free from poisonous
substances, such as antifreeze, which tastes good but can
cause serious illness or even death. Keep your
veterinarian's number handy in case of accidental ingestion.
Watch for frogs at night because if your puppy licks one
they are very poisonous.
Be Alert to Changing Needs
As your Yorkie ages, his needs will change. Your puppy may
require a different diet, need more sleep, and be less active.
Your Yorkie may not be as "fun" as he once was, but he is the
same dog you loved as a puppy. You should do everything you can
to pamper him in his final years. Yorkies can life
an approximate 15 years.
Take Pictures of Your Yorkie- Create An Album
Create a Puppy
Photo Album. Take lots of pictures just like
if you had a newborn. Be sure to take a
picture at least every 2 months to see the growth of your
Yorkie. It's fun and will give you lots of memories.
More importantly, a current photo will be invaluable in the
event that your Yorkie is lost
