Your Yorkshire Terrier will probably stay pretty healthy most of his life, but every dog can have health problems. Get to know common Yorkshire Terrier health issues, so you can get your dog the right treatment quickly. When addressed promptly, most conditions can be treated successfully.
As a breed, Yorkshire Terriers are predisposed to certain conditions, but that doesn't mean that every Yorkie will get sick. Most never have any of these illnesses, but if you recognize any of these symptoms, call your veterinarian immediately.
