These babies are like a newborn child, very fragile and need there rest. Feed your Tiny Yorkie every few hours a day. Like many tiny breeds, are prone to developing hypoglycemia---a condition that occurs when blood glucose levels drop below normal. If left untreated, hypoglycemia is potentially life threatening. Being aware of the signs are very important and keep an eye out for the following: which include shivering, lethargy, disorientation and weakness, wanting to sleep. Always keep Clear Karo syrup on hand. You should also put it in there water they drink so they are getting a little sugar to keep them up. It is important for Tiny Yorkies to have nap time, and is best to keep them in a smaller area such as a play pen. Also being sure they do not have a draft and are cold. Until they have more weight on them to run around a room.
When they are the age of 5 months start brushing your baby teeth. Small breeds are at risk for developing gum and tooth disease. Prevent this by brushing the dog's teeth with toothpaste made for dogs and a small, soft toothbrush daily. I use children tooth brush is perfect for size of the mouth. Keeping your Tiny Yorkie mouth healthy can prevent gingivitis, periodontal disease and other dental problems. As well as having them cleaned by Vet. Only use a body harness for these tiny delicate little babies... Keeping them clean with Johnson Baby Shampoo is a great way to keep them clean. Be sure to blow dry them completely dry so they do not get chilled in anyway. Most of all give your baby the LOVE and attention she/he deserves!
