Yorkshire Terrier 101: Yorkshire Terrier Allergies

Jul 22, 2008
Many people buy puppies without realizing what they are getting into. Yorkshire Terrier care has its ups and downs. When you get a Yorkshire Terrier, you are ethically and legally responsible for the well being of the dog. Remember, dogs are not toys - they can suffer. A responsible Yorkie owner will do research on what they can expect to spend on their Yorkies every year and figure out in advance whether they can afford this or not.

There are many means of finding out how to choose a vet for your Yorkshire Terrier. You can ask your dog owning friends, family and neighbors for recommendations. You can ask your pet store (one that doesn't sell puppies, of course) and you can ask your local animal shelter. Thankfully, it's easier than ever to find a vet. Since Yorkies are so popular, they should be familiar with Yorkshire Terrier allergies.

Although Yorkshire Terriers are difficult candidates for anesthesia, successful operations happen on Yorkies everyday. They just need more supervision during the operation than the average dog. So, how to choose a vet for your Yorkshire Terrier that knows about this need and for other Yorkshire Terrier allergies? If you are getting your Yorkie from a local breeder, ask for that breeder's recommendation. If you have friends and family with Yorkies, as them for recommendations

Any ethical vet will be up front about their strengths and weaknesses. They are often the most helpful people to go to when looking for a better vet for your Yorkshire Terrier! Most vets do not make that much money at their jobs. Most are in it because they love animals and want to do anything it takes to encourage you to take your dog to a vet for regular care. They have seen too many Yorkshire Terrier allergies untreated in suffering Yorkies.

It is important to get a vet before you bring a Yorkie home. Fortunately, most vets are very familiar with this breed and Yorkshire Terrier allergies, since they are so popular. How to best find a vet for your Yorkshire Terrier is through word of mouth.

Allergies to flea bites are common, but treatable. You need to get rid of the fleas, which is easier than ever to do with spot-on products like Frontline. You also need to get rid of fleas in your home, because fleas live in carpeting and furniture and just use your dog for meals.

The usual treatment for Yorkshire Terrier allergies is to do a long series of trials at home to try and identify the allergen. When chemical allergies are suspected, try not using the usual cleaner, shampoo or detergents.

It might take a long time of trial and error, but since the food allergen is identified, treatment is usually easy.
