Feeding a Silky or Yorkshire Terrier

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

BASICS Feeding!!
I recommend 3 meals a 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. C
ow’s milk- 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 minimize 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 labeling. 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 etlest till 15 months of age

A happy, healthy, satisfied and balanced puppy/dog will have no problem when it comes to eating, they will eat everything you put in front of them. ( Dog Food ) One of the most important things one has to remember is to give your dog a healthy variety of foods like fish, chicken, beef as well as dry foods and sometimes a good tin food, and not always the same so that they don't get board with what they are eating let's not forget we don't always like to eat the same every day.
If your dog always eats well and suddenly gets fussy with its food stop and think WHY is this happening?
If your dog is healthy and still won't eat then just try these ideas  
Give your dog its food and leave him/her to eat it
Wait for about a half an hour and then remove the food your puppy/dog has had enough time to eat.
If the food is still OK place it into the fridge

Try giving the food back to him/her a few hour later,
if your dog still does not want the food put it back into the fridge it will not harm your adult dog not eating for a day or so but make sure that it always drinks fresh water your puppy should at least has some puppy milk, ricotta cheese or something else that it likes.
If you give in to your adult dog with its fussy eating it will think it has the upper hand and will try to get away with this when ever you give it something it does not like. With puppies on the other hand it's a little different there could be many reasons why your puppy is not eating.   1
· Teething    2
· Upset belly   3
· Using common sense and knowing your dog goes a long way when it comes to feeding/raising/and taking care of your beloved four legged friend.

Many things dogs should not eat!

Beer, liquor, wine, and foods containing alcohol -- none of it are good for your dog. That's because alcohol has the same effect on a dog's liver and brain that it has on humans. But it takes far less to do its damage. Just a little can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, coma, even death. The smaller the dog, the greater the bad effect.
Coffee, Tea, and Other Caffeine

Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a dog. And, there is no antidote. Symptoms of caffeine poisoning include restlessness, rapid breathing, heart palpitations, muscle tremors, fits, and bleeding. In addition to tea and coffee - including beans and grounds -- caffeine can be found in cocoa, chocolate, colas, and stimulant drinks such as Red Bull. It's also in some cold medicines and pain killers.

Milk and Other Dairy Products

Every once in a while a small bit of natural non smelly cheese is OK for your dog but only as a treat, Milk and milk-based products can cause diarrhea and other digestive upset if given in large amounts, and too often. Lactose FREE milk for dogs like (Pets own milk) ricotta or cottage cheese which have been fermented in small amounts are fine especially for a hot summer meal.
Macadamia Nuts

Dogs should not eat macadamia nuts or foods containing macadamia nuts because they can be fatal. As few as six raw or roasted macadamia nuts can make a dog ill. Symptoms of poisoning include muscle tremors, weakness or paralysis of the hindquarters, vomiting, elevated body temperature, and rapid heart rate. Eating chocolate with the nuts will make

Symptoms worse, possibly leading to death.
Candy and Gum

Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol can cause an increase in the insulin circulating through your dog's body. That can cause your dog's blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination eventually, the dog may have seizures. Liver failure can occur within just a few days.
Sugary Foods and Drinks

Too much sugar can do the same thing to dogs that it does to humans. It can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly the onset of diabetes

Most people know that chocolate is bad for dogs. The toxic agent in chocolate is theobromine. It's in all kinds of chocolate, even white chocolate. The most dangerous kinds, though, are dark chocolate, chocolate mulch, and unsweetened baking chocolate. Eating chocolate, even just licking the icing bowl, can cause a dog to vomit, have diarrhea, and be excessively thirsty. It can also cause abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures, and death. Chocolate is not a natural food for dogs to eat.
Fat Trimmings and some Bones

Table scraps often contain meat fat that a human didn't eat and bones. Both can be dangerous for dogs. Fat trimmed from meat, both cooked and uncooked, can cause pancreatitis in dogs. And, although it seems natural to give a dog a bone, a dog can choke on certain bones like chicken (any poultry), T bones steak or chop bones can splinter and cause an obstruction or lacerations of your dog's digestive system. The only bones we recommend are brisket or knuckle bones.
