Instinct Raw. Comes frozen in little bites, I thaw what’s necessary for each meal. Another important step is to have, allergy testing, environmental, and food. Made all the difference!

Boil boneless, skinless chicken (breasts or tenders). Once cooked, use the water you boiled the chicken in to cook instant rice. Once it is all cooked and cooled, chop up the chicken and mix it in with the rice.

Royal Canine. Used it for all of my Yorkies and still do. Also I find if you can get them to eat a little bit in the morning it helps thier stomach And a little bit throughout the day. Even just a few pieces. Sometimes I feed out of my hand. Yorkies are very finicky eaters.

Primal raw is the best solution . Rabies one and done , no flea and tick use only wonderside spray , puppy shots and done . Give PetMoringa BALACE DAILY . I believe heartworm or flea meds caused my babies seizures and or pancreatitis and passing of blood . She was on Kibble ( burnt food full of synthetics ) then vet put her on science diet ID which is the worst ! Feed poison , treat with poison and you get a slowly poisoned dog . All natural here ! Raw meat , marrow bones . Homemade is best but don’t cook it , you lose all the nutrients. I might sound crazy but I will not lose another to poor diet . Following Cathy’s yorkies tips and suggestions . She specializes in nutrition for dogs

Taste Of The Wild. Mine loves it and zero tummy issues. I had problems with so many brands! Either she couldn’t poop or she never stopped pooping. Also, it’s more filling so after a few days, it takes less food to fill her up. It costs more but since she eats less, the cost is really about the same.

We have had ours on Royal Cannine low fat gastrointestinal for many years now. Keep the dry kibble out for her whenever she wants it and feed the wet canned food twice daily. It has helped. She still has occasional tummy issues but it is much better.PS- i have a VERY finicky eater. Rice, chicken, scrambled eggs. All the usual bland foods you give a little fur baby when not feeling good, she won’t touch. Doesn’t like treats either.

I make a pot of boiled chicken (shredded), canned carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, brown rice, scrambled eggs and gravy. Bag it up in about 3 cup servings and freeze it, and feed her accordingly. She’s very picky, at least I know what’s in it, she is 8 years old and doesn’t have many teeth, so this works well
