Customer Question
I am thinking of...

I am thinking of buying a yorkie poo puppy. I have raised large dogs before but not small. When do they need their first worming? Shots? and at what age do you start feeding moist food?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infestations the puppy can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with these concerns about Hershey.

How old is Hershey?

Are you purchasing him from a breeder?

Thanks, Deb
