Everything You Need to Know About Your Newborn Yorkie


If you have just bought a Newborn Yorkie, there is plenty to know! Here’s information on the first ten days, weight at birth, Early socialization, and health concerns. To prepare yourself, you can download the following information. Getting your new Yorkie home is an exciting time for both you and your new pet. Hopefully, these tips will help you raise a happy, healthy, and confident pup.

Weight at birth

It is important to note that Yorkies can be overweight or underweight. Overweight pups are at increased risk for hypoglycemia, trauma, and collapsed trachea. Additionally, a Yorkie under three pounds can develop bone/joint disorders. A newborn Yorkie should double in weight within the first 10 days of life. A weight chart may not be accurate for a mixed breed Yorkie.

While Yorkies are hard to weigh on a scale, they are easy to assess with a visual inspection. Make sure that the waist curve is subtly curving. A pronounced waist curve could indicate an underweight pup. Your vet may even take a stool sample to make sure there’s no parasite. Be sure to follow up with regular checkups to make sure your Yorkie is healthy.

Upon birth, newborn Yorkies weigh two to five ounces, depending on the mother’s health and the bloodline of the pup. During the first two weeks after birth, Yorkies will exclusively depend on milk from their mother. They will begin to develop their teeth and gums by the second week of life. After the last two weeks, the pup will begin eating solid food. Ultimately, they will reach their adult size at 12 to 18 months.

The best way to assess the risk of neonatal mortality in a Yorkie is by considering its birth weight. If the pup is underweight, he or she is at greater risk for problems such as hypoglycemia and hypothermia. Research into pregnancy physiology is needed to better understand the physiological processes involved in fetal growth in different breeds. This information can help veterinarians determine when it is time to take action.

First ten days of life

The first ten days of a newborn Yorkie’s life are the most critical in developing their eyes and socialization. This stage also marks the start of the puppy‘s learning process, as it learns how to greet other animals. Ideally, it should stay with its mother until it’s about eight to ten weeks old, but some breeders wait until they are thirteen or fourteen weeks old before moving them out of the home.

While it’s not harmful to separate the puppies from their mothers early, a premature separation can throw the genetic-makeup of a puppy out of whack. Separating them early can result in loss of appetite and weight, as well as an increased risk of certain diseases. And while you may think it’s cruel to separate the puppies from their mothers, it’s actually the responsible thing to do.

The first ten days of a newborn Yorkie’s life will be spent in a pen or a box. This is where the puppies will sleep for the first few weeks. A littermate can be removed and nursed, but sometimes a Yorkie pup may need to be bottle-fed. Make sure to check on your pup’s development and provide them with a stable environment.

Early socialization

If you are planning to bring your new Yorkie home, you need to consider early socialization. Yorkie puppies can develop social skills by the time they are eight to 12 weeks old. They learn to interact with people and other animals when they are close to their mother and littermates. Separating your puppy too early may lead to an overly anxious dog. Some breeders wait until they are 13 to 14 weeks old to socialize their puppies.

The most important way to start socialization for your Yorkie is to take it on daily walks. You can take the puppy to a park or even to a store. The important thing to remember while socializing your Yorkie is to keep calm and confident. This is because dogs read body language, and it is crucial that you remain calm in public. When your dog does feel threatened or anxious, it will likely react accordingly.

Another way to begin early socialization is to take your pup to a park. Introduce your pet to children and strollers. Try to get as close as you can. Try to get other parents to let your puppy explore the park. Ask them to walk near you or beside you and gradually introduce your pet to children. Your puppy will be more comfortable with this as it gets used to the sound of children and babies. However, don’t forget to keep the nursery off-limits for a few days.

Health issues

Your new yorkie may show many of the same health problems you do, but the first thing you should do is get her to the vet as soon as possible. Many Yorkies suffer from certain health problems, including respiratory problems and allergies. There are several ways to treat these ailments. Many people treat them with medications, but some cases require surgery. Luckily, most yorkies make a full recovery. You may also want to invest in an air purifier to keep your yorkie’s environment clean. Lastly, you should avoid putting clothing around your Yorkie’s neck.

During the early days of a Yorkie’s life, he or she will be more susceptible to hypoglycemia, a sudden drop in blood sugar. Hypoglycemia is common in toy breeds, especially Yorkies. It can be life-threatening and results in seizures. Because the Yorkie’s digestive system is so sensitive to insulin levels, it is important to maintain a balanced blood sugar level. When blood glucose levels are low, it will cause symptoms like shivering, drowsiness, seizures, and even coma. If left untreated, hypoglycemia can lead to seizures, coma, and even death.

Nursing: During the first few weeks, a newborn Yorkie pup relies on his or her mother for all of its nutritional needs. A nursing mother expends a lot of energy, so it is imperative that she feeds her puppy high-quality dog food to ensure proper nutrition. Your vet will also be able to recommend the right amount of food to feed her. You can also consult with a vet about what the recommended feeding amount is for nursing Yorkies.


There are several things to consider when planning a diet for your new Yorkie. First of all, you should know that Yorkies require several small meals throughout the day, but you can give them a single main meal if you’d like. If you want to avoid the need to adjust your dog’s diet, try following these guidelines:

A Yorkie’s health depends on its diet. It needs to be fed well because its body needs energy to grow, and it’s not yet strong enough to walk. The mother’s milk provides the energy it needs to grow and mature. Moreover, Yorkie puppies develop teeth at around 4 weeks. When you separate them from their mother, they are no longer dependent on it physically. By then, the puppy will be strong enough to independently regulate its temperature and will feel safe.

While the choice of food is not difficult, choosing the right brand and quantity of food is important. Many commercial dog foods contain by-products, which may cause allergies and digestive distress in your dog. Also, many commercial foods contain meat by-products, which include animal body parts and road-kill. The meat that you choose to feed your pup can legally come from roadkill, diseased animals, and chickens dying on the way to a processing facility.


If you have just brought home your first Yorkie, you may be wondering how to provide exercise for your new pet. Yorkies are low-maintenance dogs, but they do need a good outlet for their energy. Daily walks should last about half an hour or more, but shorter walks are fine as well. Regardless of the length of the walk, the exercise your Newborn Yorkie needs will benefit both you and the dog.

You can start your puppy’s exercise regimen by taking him for a short walk or jog. Yorkies love to run and play, so if you live in a crowded area, you should consider using a stair-stretching toy to make your pet more mobile. You can also introduce puzzle toys to keep your Yorkie entertained. Puzzle toys will enhance your pup’s intelligence and improve his mood. Hide and seek games, like fetch, will help stimulate his nose and brain.

Besides regular walking, Yorkies also need mental stimulation. As with any other dog breed, Yorkies need a variety of activities to keep them mentally stimulated. Despite their playful nature, however, Yorkies are not the best pets for children, and may be snappy or easily startled by small people. A harness may be necessary to keep your pup safe and prevent accidents. But don’t worry, it’s worth a shot!
