Tips For Caring For Your Yorkshire Terrier

Aug 7, 2008
There are many things that can and do go wrong with breeding so it is important that you carefully consider what can happen before your choosing to start Yorkshire Terrier breeding for yourself. The first thing you need to do is consider your own Yorkshire Terrier. Do they meet breed standards, do you know what specific faults they may have and how they are transmitted through genes?

Both the male and female breeding partners need to have bacteria cultures and brucellosis tests done before breeding in order to help reduce the infections transferred during breeding. Before breeding it is also important to have the dogs thoroughly checked out by a veterinarian to make sure they have no conditions that can be transmitted to the litter such as luxating patella's, cardiomyopathy or hypothyroidism.

Next is it important that you carefully consider everything that can go wrong during the gestation period. There is always the chance that the mother dog can die before, during and after whelping. Some of the most common complications include uterine inertia, prolapsed uterus, eclampsia, metritis or mastitis. Also consider whether or not you have the time and ability to take on Yorkshire Terrier breeding.

As the whelping time draws near the female Yorkie should never be left alone and most of the time a Yorkie will need assistance when whelping. So before and after the whelping it may be necessary for you to stay home for several days.

As whelping draws near the female Yorkie should never be left alone and often assistance is necessary during whelping. You may need to stay home for several days before and after the whelping. The cost of breeding should also be taken into account. Make sure you have enough money saved up just in case a C-section is required, as it may be necessary for smaller breeds such as Yorkshire Terriers. Make sure you thoroughly know what the signs of trouble are and what steps you can do in order to resolve the problem.

Raising the Yorkie puppies is the final aspect of Yorkshire Terrier breeding that you should consider. Fading puppies, toxic milk, septicemia, primary atelectasis, herpes virus, cleft palates and hypoglycemia are just a few of the conditions that you need to educate yourself about before raising puppies.

There may be a chance that a birth defect is present when a puppy is born and if the defect is serious enough you may have to choose to put the puppy down. Would you be able to do this if it was necessary? Even if you can, it can also lead to complications for the female dog. If anything happens to the mother would you be able to take several days off work in order to raise the litter.

Vaccinations, looking for a home for the puppies, paying vet bills and raising the puppies for several years or their entire life if you are unable to find a home for them are just a few of the costs you may have to pay for.
