We would appreciate some advice.
Our yorkie eats in the morning but when we get home after work she vomits up the food (it looks like it has not been digested).
We are giving her chicken and rice.
Also when she goes to the toilet, her stools look like they have some blood in them.
We have taken her to the vet and he says she is ok.
Are we over feeding her? How much should we feed her, she is 3?
Thanks for the fantastic site.
Hi Michael, sorry for the delay in replying and thank you for the kind words about my website 🙂
I am just wondering how much chicken and rice you feed your yorkie in the morning?
First of all I would advise reading about homemade dog food so that you can learn how much protein, carbohydrates and fat is needed.
Please also read about the various foods that are dangerous to dogs, as some things like onions or garlic can’t be eaten by dogs.
I think that half a cup in the morning and another half cup in the evening should be more than enough for your yorkie. That is what our Harry eats.
However, if you put down half a cup in the morning and she doesn’t eat it all, take away what is left, do not leave it out on the floor and give a little bit less at night.
If she leaves anything after 15mins give or take it is too much for her.
Just watch her carefully and try to see what amounts are right for her, every dog is different.
