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 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. Please do not water any milk down. [Some dogs can not tolerant cow’s milk]. More info--->

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.
More info---> Dogs should not eat!

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.

 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 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), 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.
Raw Eggs
There can be problems with giving your dog raw eggs. The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli if the eggs are not kept fresh so in the fridge. The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs (especially the egg white) interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin. This can cause skin problems as well as Problem’s with your dog's coat if raw eggs are fed for a long time. If you want to give your dog a raw egg say on dry food as a meal just give them the egg yolk, maybe once a month or so just for a short while.
It's not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog. Eating too much salt can cause excessive thirst and urination and lead to sodium ion poisoning. Symptoms of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, elevated body temperature, and seizures. It may even cause death.
Yeast Dough
Before it's baked, bread dough needs to rise. And, that's exactly what it would do in your dog's stomach if your dog ate it. As it swells inside, the dough can stretch the dog's abdomen and cause severe pain. In addition, when the yeast ferments the dough to make it rise, it produces alcohol that can lead to alcohol poisoning.
You're Medicine
Reaction to a drug commonly prescribed for humans is the most common cause of poisoning in dogs. Just as you would do for your children, keep all medicines out of your dog's reach. And, never give your dog any over-the-counter medicine unless told to do so by your vet. Ingredients such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are common in pain relievers and cold medicine. And, they can be deadly for your dog.
Fruits: dogs should no eat at any time   Persimmons, Peaches, and Plums
The problem with these fruits is the seeds or pits. The Seeds from persimmons can cause inflammation of the small intestine in dogs. They can also cause intestinal obstruction. Obstruction is also a possibility if a dog eats the pit from a peach or plum. Plus, peach and plum pits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to both humans and dogs. The difference is humans know not to eat them. Dogs don't.
Grapes and Raisins
Grapes and raisins have often been used as treats for dogs. But it's not a good idea. Although it isn't clear why, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. And just a small amount can make a dog ill. Repeated vomiting is an early sign. Within a day, the dog will become lethargic and depressed. The best prevention is to keep grapes and raisins off counters and other places your dog can reach.
No matter how healthy Avocados are, you shouldn't feed them to your dog. Avocados contain a substance called persin. It's harmless for humans who aren't allergic. But large amounts might be toxic to dogs. If you happen to be growing avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. The toxic ingredient in avocado is called persin. They can cause difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the chest, abdomen and heart, vomiting, diarrhea, death, inflammation of mammary glands, cardiac failure, respiratory distress, generalized congestion, abdominal enlargement. Persin is in the leaves, seed, and bark, as well as in the fruit. Even if Avocados will not kill your dog it might give it a huge tummy aces and they might swallow the seed.
Vegies dogs should not eat at any time
Broccoli, Cauliflower or any other cabbage related vegetable gastrointestinal irritant, potatoes are also very bad for your dog.
Acute gastric effects, liver and kidney damage, abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, vomiting
Nutmeg Tremors, seizures and death

Tomatoes can cause tremors and heart arrhythmias. Tomato plants and the most toxic, but tomatoes themselves are alsounsafe_

Onions and Garlic
Onions and garlic in all forms -- powdered, raw, cooked, or dehydrated -- can destroy a dog's red blood cells, leading to anemia. An occasional small dose is probably OK. But just eating a large quantity once or eating smaller amounts regularly can cause poisoning. Symptoms of anemia include weakness, vomiting, little interest in food, dullness, and breathlessness.
Apple Seeds
Apple, Almond, Apricot, and Cherry, Pear, Prunes & similar fruit: The seeds of these fruits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans causing diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, (Stem, Seeds and Leaves). So, be sure to core and seed apples before you feed them to your dog.
Rhubarb leaves NO
Contain oxalates, which can affect the digestive, nervous, and urinary systems.
Other foods dogs should not eat Cat food

A high level of fat can cause pancreatitis in dogs.
