try mixing some wet food into the dry... i bet he starts to eat..i think three days is lil long for a lil one not too eat. you may consider calling the vet and giving him some Nutrical for his sugar level.

How old is your Yorkie and how much does he weigh? If he's still a young pup, I would try anything to get him to eat. Have you tried mixing the kibble with some wet food? Or sprinkling Parmesan cheese or using real human chicken mixed in with the kibble? It's a good thing he's still acting healthy and okay. Some small breeds can suffer from hypoglycemia if they don't eat, moreso as young puppies.
Just last week, Jackson (who is 10 months old) didn't eat any kibble for 2 days and he was still perfectly fine too. On the third day, I gave him wet food mixed with dry and he ate most of it up. Yorkies tend to be finicky and sometimes they just don't want to eat, or you have to try a new food. What is he currently eating?

3 days is too long; i am surprised he didn't vomit any bile. make sure you change the food so he has a fresh plate; what type of food is it; maybe it's not appealing to him; what you can do is boil some chicken and some white rice ; mash them together with a bit of water; and try feeding him that; or just the chicken; just to get him to eat something. give him some nutrical or a bit of honey; it might increase his appetite.
