Yorkshire Terriers

  • Hypoglycemia as puppies—high energy

  • Supplements often used first 6 months of life

  • Porto-systemic liver shunts—early detection blood screening is critical

  • Medial luxating patellas, "slip knees"—keeping body condition lean can help knees cope with dysfunction

  • Periodontal disease - good oral hygiene is a must in this breed or they will have oral disease early in life.

  • Some Yorkshire Terriers can be "yappy," barking at every sound they hear. Early and consistent training can help.
