How much to feed a Yorkie per day?

As already discussed above, your York requires three to four meals per day before he becomes an adult and about two meals per day when he becomes an adult. Although this is correct, you should not measure the correct food intake by the number of meals. Growing Yorkie takes between 45 and 55 calories per pound to stay healthy, and an adult York may need less. The best way to provide the necessary amount of calories for your adult dweller is to divide or divide meals into three to four meals per day.
