Q. Hi there I have a small yorkie that is 16 weeks old and 3.5 lbs. Is there any snacks that they can eat besides their main dog food

Answered By

A. The best thing is to take out some of his biscuits from his daily food and give him these through the day as treats. This way it will stop him putting on weight. Other good treats are tiny pieces of raw carrot. No bigger than 1cm square pieces , smaller preferably. Definitely NO grapes or raisins THESE ARE TOXIC.
