pregnant yorkie, not eating

20 11:37:09

I'm sure my female yorkie is pregnant.  She any my male yorkie mated several times during the week of August 14th.  That makes her about 4 weeks along.  She hasn't been eating the past few days.  I took her to my vet and she thinks we should just watch and wait for a few more days.  Is this normal and do you have any suggestions?


I think your vet knows best.  However, you could try feeding her something that she can't resist like chicken.  When my females were pregnant I would feed them chicken because of its high protein content.  If she doesn't like chicken then try something else that you know has high protein in it.
