feeding 12 week old yorkie
I have a 12 week old yorkie and i need to know how many times a day she should be fed and about how many hours between? She is under 4 lbs
At a young age Yorkshire Terrier puppies will be energetic and will burn calories very easily. At first it is a good idea to feed yorkie puppies about four times a day. By doing this you are allowing them to get all the necessary nutrition they need. If you were to try and feed them all of it at once they may either burn it all before the end of the day and then go to sleep hungry, be sick because of the excess amount or leave part of the food because they can't finish it.
By feeding them in small amounts periodically every day they will get into a routine that will let them know that once they start getting hungry there will be food for them soon.
