TODAY’S TIDBIT: We’re celebrating senior Yorkies this week on AbsoluteYorkies! Yorkies in their more mature years can tend to gain weight because they may not be exercising as much if they suffer from arthritis or other joint issues. So choosing a diet low in fat is essential for your senior Yorkie.

Read the label on the dog food bag or can and check out the percentage of fat. The lower the fat percentage the better.  We like Fromm’s White Fish and Potato  kibble that has a low fat content (11% fat) and 23% protein (look for food with a protein content of less than 26%). Fromm’s Reduced Activity Senior Gold is also a good choice.  Most brand name dog food manufacturers produce a food for senior dogs.  If you’re concerned about what to feed your senior Yorkie, talk to your Vet. 

Some senior dog foods contain glucosamine designed to help your Yorkie’s joints. And as your Yorkie gets older, she may lose some teeth so choosing a soft food with a low fat content would be the better choice.

Remember: food with a low fat content will help your senior Yorkie maintain a healthy weight. See you on Friday for TODAY’S TIDBIT.

    My yorkie is 7 yrs old. Was 4.4 lbs and all of a sudden she’s 5.4 lbs. She eats with 10 seconds. She’s been on Halo, but now its time for a change. I was going to give her Evo but now I’m researching. I live in Manhattan. I never heard of Fromms. Maybe eating too much of apples with me. Very little pieces. Fresh carrots, broccoli. Am I right about this?

    My female yorkie 7 yrs old went from 4.4 to 5.4 on Halo dog food. Need to get her a weight mgt food.

    Hi Linda, senior Yorkies can tend to gain weight. Broccoli is great. Apples and carrots are ok but they do have more sugar in them than vegetables. You’ve mentioned you live in Manhattan. Must be an awesome place! You can buy Fromms at Petropolis, 91 Washington Street and their website says free delivery. Here’s their website address, http://www.petropolisnyc.com. I’ve never been to NY but you could call them for directions to their store. You can buy Fromms Online too but I’ve never bought it that way. Thanks for your comment. Kathryn

    raw veggies or cooked? I have her on Evo weight mgt. 1/2 cup per day. She’s slowing down. She just walks now so slowly. I’m not used to her being this way. I’ve been sick for the last few months and she seems so low. Constantly wants to eat. Is Fromms better than Evo. Can you find out. I’d have to switch her food again.

    Hi Linda, if your Yorkie doesn’t have healthy teeth or gums, I would suggest cooked veggies. Broccoli and carrots are higher in calories so I would limit those. But celery, lettuce or apples would be ok. Evo has special dog food designed for senior dogs under its Innova brand name (Evo and Innova are part of the Natura Company) that looks quite good. We haven’t tried it but the Nutrient Analysis on their website shows acceptable amounts of protein and fat. She could be a little depressed because you’re under the weather and that would slow her down a little. Check with your vet if you’re really concerned about her state of mind.

    Cassie went to her orig. vet yesterday. She’s been on Halo chicken 5.5 oz can per day. She’s down to 5 lbs. She now has gum disease and two of her front teeth are now loose. She lost 10 at the last cleaning. This vet has digital imaging just like for humans. I was thinking of going to Innova sr wet food. Let me know what others are thinking about this. The pet stores locally are not familiar with Fromms. He also saw some grey in her right eye. I’m so stressed about things going wrong now. She’s my whole world.

    Hi Linda, I’m sorry I forget how old Cassie is…can you tell me again? It is difficult isn’t it when our furry family members get older. What food did your vet suggest for Cassie?
