Bathing my Yorkie after she has given birth

Question

Good day

I just want to know, how long must I wait,after my yorkie gives birth, to bath her?
I have researched the internet and have received mixed answers, I would rather ask the experts.

Thank you for the assistance

Answer

It doesn’t hurt to wipe your Yorkie off with a wet rag or towel the day after she gives birth, but I would wait until the puppies are about a month old before you give momma Yorkie a good bath with soap.

By this time the puppies should be weaned from their mother’s milk, so bathing her will not interfere with this important step.
