Homemade Food for Miniature Yorkie Pup?

I have an 11 week old miniature Yorkie. I've tried giving him kibble and it makes him ill. I then put him onto a chicken/white rice diet and he livened up, but I have since started to introduce the kibble again and he's not got any energy and has been running to the toilet a lot. I'm looking for homemade recipes as I want to make sure he's getting everything he needs.

We used to boil ground beef and serve it with white rice to my sisters dog with a delicate stomach.

Best to talk to your vet and get an approved recipe for a pup that is so small and going to be such a small adult dog. 11 weeks is very young and the vet may need you to add mother's milk (something you can get at the vet or some tractor supply places) to whatever you are going to feed him. This will need to be adjusted as the pup grows also!

Every dog is different. For example, my dog gets pancreatitis from ground beef, ground lamb or ground turkey so if we need to give him homemade food, the vet gave us the right proportions of white rice and white meat of chicken.

My friend had a tea cup yorkie that could only eat cottage cheese and rice and her vet gave her a recipe for the amounts for that.

Another friend could only feed her (big) dog some kind of special vet recipe "raw" diet. She got her supplies from a dog that nutritionist her vet recommended because he had all kinds of health issues.

Prayers that your vet finds the right combination the first time out!! Sometimes it takes a bit of tweaking, especially in a small pup.

Post back with an update!

There are many dogs who can not eat Kibble dog food and it makes them sick. I have 6 dogs at home and my vet has told me a long time ago that it is best to feed them plain white rice or even pasta with some cooked beef scraps I buy at the market or even some boiled or cooked chicken with no seasonings on it.

I have been feeding my dogs like this for over 20+ years and they are all healthy and have lived a very long life. I believe this is better for the animal than the food you can buy for them.

I had a dog that had many food allergies. I tried everything and finally ended up cooking brown rice and adding canned pink salmon (not too expensive) It had lots of oil and bones that were cooked to pieces in the canning process. I added a vitamin that the Vet recommended. My dog never chewed his skin again and lived to be 17 years old.

Avoid liver... as this could give the dog the runs. Try warming the food in the microwave before serving as this releases the smell more. ( do not over heat ).

Try a little chicken stock on the food. Wee dogs can be fussy but well worth the effort. Try making a meat casserole especially for the dog, then freeze in serving sizes to make it easier for yourself.

Contact a Vet, there could be many things that are uncertain, then change accordingly. Good Luck!
