Yorkie Health and Health Concerns
This section discusses some of the ailments, injuries and diseases that are common with the Yorkie breed.Â Although you may never need this information, it is very important that you are at least aware of these conditions and afflictions and what to do if you see similar symptoms in your new puppy.
Care Immediately upon Receiving your Yorkie Puppy
Within two business days of receiving you Yorkie from Northern Virginia Yorkies, you need to take your puppy to the Veterinarian for an examination.Â This is to protect you, Northern Virginia Yorkies, and most importantly, your new puppy.Â As an ethical and responsible breeder, I would never knowingly provide you with an unhealthy puppy.Â Having a Veterinarian thoroughly examine your Yorkie is the best way to protect him/her from life threatening health conditions.Â On the outside chance that something wrong is found with you puppy, you have met the requirements for the initial health Guarantee.Â More importantly, however, you will have provided an opportunity for the puppy to receive the care it needs.
