Your Yorkshire Terrier is an especially lovable dog with strong character and loved for its long, silky, steel blue-grey fur, that is astoundingly similar to human hair. To keep their hair continually growing, Yorkshire Terriers need up to a 35% protein daily diet. One of the unique characteristics Yorkshire Terrier is an absence of an undercoat. Thus, even a small wound or a light collision can led to a very sensitive reaction of their skin:
Yorkshire Terriers have a small jaw bone with small teeth, which need to be protected. Due to frequent shedding, Yorkshire Terriers can become especially fussy and thus their food should be especially palatable.
Your Yorkshire Terrier has a uniquely high life expectation; some veterinarians and breeders report Yorkshire Terriers who have lived up to 21 years. With increasing age, the risk of heart, kidney, and joint problems increases.
Royal Canin Yorkshire Terrier Dog Food was specially developed with the unique characteristics of mature Yorkshire Terriers in mind:
Radiant Fur and Healthy Skin: Borage oil and Biotin make your dog’s fur softer and more radiant. The “Intense Colour” Complex supports the development of the steel blue-gray color. Sulphurous amino acids encourage the production of keratin, and supports the formation of the fur
Tartar Prophylaxis: Sodium phosphate intercepts the calcium in saliva, so that it cannot be used in the formation of tartar. The special size and texture of the kibble lead to optimized chewing and deep penetration into the teeth that gently, yet, abrasively cleans your pet’s teeth.
Highest Absorption: select nutrients ensure the highest absorption even for fussy dogs
Delay of Ageing: anti-Oxidant complex protects your pet’s long living cells from free radicals, a reduced sodium content protects the heart, a low phosphorous content relieves the kidneys. Chondroitinsulfate and Glucosamine, building blocks of protein, protect your terrier’s joints.
