Q. What kind of dog food should I give my dog? how often should I feed him and when? he's a one year old yorkie.

Answered By

A. Twice a day is ideal (morning and evening). There are many good diets on the market. My favourites are royal canin and hills science, these are premium diets. Other good ones are blue buffalo, wellness, natural balance. Ensure it is a complete balanced dog food. Dry foods are slightly better for your dog's teeth and generally cheaper too.
