Fresh Food for Yorkshire Terriers
Feisty. Fierce. Affectionate. The Yorkshire terrier packs a lot of personality into a compact frame. Their petite stature, and frankly adorable little faces, make Yorkies look like the quintessential lap dog. But while they do love a lap, these little dogs are nothing less than bold terriers. Their energy and attitude can make them wonderful, active companions—for someone willing to devote time to training.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Yorkie is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and ample opportunity to chase many squeaky “mice.”
What’s the best dog food for yorkshire terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Yorkie contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Yorkshire Terriers

Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Yorkshire terrier’s odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer.

Know what’s in the bowl
For Yorkies with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common, and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Yorkie’s health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance, and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer
There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your Yorkie the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain carcinogens and preservatives, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation.
