Feeding a Silky or Yorkshire Terrier

Getting a dog as a pet, ( Silky OR Yorkshire Terrier ) means caring for it in a responsible way a dogs life long!
Approx.: 14 to 16 years!

A puppy's dietary needs different from the needs of an adult or mature dog.A puppy have twice the energy needs of a fully grown dog.
I recommend 3 meals day to the age of 3 months, 2 meals a day to 8-9 months then 1 meal a day for the adult dog, but this a guide for our Silkie's & Yorkies only. If you give your pup milk, goats milk is the best.
Or Pets own Puppy milk.--->Woolworth . /or-->

Please do not water any milk down. [Some dogs can not tolerant cow’s milk].
Always make sure your dog has clean fresh water and shade in the daytime, especially in the hot summer months.

“Feeding” NEVER, NEVER feed your pup Chicken - BONES, FISH BONES ,or CHOP BONES as these can cause serious internal damage. NO Potatoes, Onions, Chocolate, spicy things, salts, the white   of an egg. Cat foot, and for some Silkie's, Noodles should only be fed OCCASIONALLY to very ACTIVE dogs.

Dental Hygiene Check your dog's teeth regularly for signs of tartar build up and gum disease. Regularly give your dog a raw bone or hard -baked biscuit to scrape his teeth clean and thereby minimise bad breath. I have found oxtail bones or knuckle bones are quite safe   but don't leave the bones laying about for days.

Do not feed your pup meat alone as this does not have all the vitamins and minerals your pup needs.
There are many good, well balanced dog food products available from your supermarkets, and many of the dog food companies have put a lot of time and money into researching the best possible nutritional foods for your dog.
Most dog foods display quantity instructions on the labelling. I do not recommend CAT food for dogs [although they seem to like it]
As I believe it was made for CATS not for dogs and requirements are different from our dogs. Dry biscuits are an excellent source of completely balanced food and are also very economical in these recessional times.
I like to give my dogs a variety of food such as a good quality canned food, Puppy food for pup's up to the age of 12 month. Dry biscuits, fresh meat and vegetables cooked, and the dog sausage type of food. I wouldn't like to eat the same meal day in and day out so I don't expect my dogs to either. A few piece of non smelly cheese or a small amount of cooked Liver are a good treat. But once again, this is only a guide.
Helpful hints for home cooked dog food Unfortunately, some dogs Young or old, hold their owners to ransom and   refuse to eat'- perhaps holding out for chicken or fillet steak.
This is nonsense as the dog must eat what you think is best for him. Therefore, ignore these tactics and rem­ove the food if uneaten, in half an hour.* He has, had ample time to take, advantage
"of eating. If the food can be saved; place glad-wrap over same and place it the refrigerator for the next day. Perhaps it can be heated up and made palatable again -you can judge if this is possible.
If not, it's far better to put it in the garbage tin than to leave it sit there uneaten to attract the flies. Besides it gives the `fussy eater 'a psycho-, logical advantage which makes it difficult to break this habit.
Some dogs can go for three days without eating. Don't worry; he won't die of starvation when he is being offered good food each day. If firmness is exhibited, he will' be eating very nicely whatever you choose to feed, him.
At times like this a vitamin supplement is extremely valuable.
Increase his maintenance dosage a little and in no time you will have him begging for his food:

Change in diet pattern!
Remember, a dog's digestive system takes several days to adjust to any changes in diet - so if you wish to feed your  dog a completely different diet to what he is used to, take it slowly or his bowels will protest with subsequent trouble for you? However, as the time passes, introduce gradually the food you have decided to feed your dog.
For more information.! Remember, what you feed to your silky terrier or Yorkshire Terrier, will show in his or her general appearance and condition. Puppies in particular should receive adequate nutrition due to the particular demands placed upon their constitution during the growth period.

I do "not" recommend any kind of cat foods for dogs that is dry or meats.
Cat foods normally have a higher salt and potassium content then dog foods and this is not good for your dog
(even though they love to eat it). "Cat food" is meant for cats alone and not for Dogs. NO NO

1.- Alcohol -àBeer, liquor, wine, and foods containing alcohol!
2.- Coffee, Tea, and Other Caffeine - Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a dog.  
3.-  Milk and Other Dairy Products - Every once in a while a small bit of natural non smelly cheese is OK

As you can see, in our leaflet #1 we like to feed our dogs a variety of foods ranging from meats tined or fresh, fish, some vegies, dry food and some lactose free dairy products.
Feeding for puppies up to the age of about 12 months, it is better to feed specific puppy foods most of the time. Feeding your puppy some vegies, lactose free puppy milk, chicken and fish is ok to but together with the other foods so that your puppy get all the vitamins and minerals it needs.
From about 3-7 months on depending on the weight of your puppy you should feed your puppy two to three meals a day.
With 8 - 9 months you can reduce it down to two meals a day again depending on the weight of your puppy
And with 12 and adult age feed your dog one meal a day unless you think your dog needs a bit more weight then give it an extra snake during the day.
It is very important to feed your dog dry food once or 2.times a week for many reasons.
Changes in the diet pattern can be a challenge so remember, a dog's digestive system takes several days to adjust to any changes if you wish to feed your dog a completely different diet or Water to what he is used to, take it slowly or his bowls will protest with subsequent troubles for you. Start by slowly introducing the food you wish him/her to have over time until your dog is used to it.
