Picky Yorkie,in need of advice!
I just adopted a 4lb 4 year old Yorkie who was a puppy mill dog for his whole life. He cannot eat dry dog food as its too hard on his teeth (he had to have some extracted due to poor care in the mill). He absolutely loves people food and Iíve been feeding him baked chicken/ground beef/turkey and rice (sometimes some plain yogurt for probiotics mixed in) which he devours. However, his vet said that just people food is not sufficient enough for good health. We have tried 7-8 different wet dog food brands with no luck; each one he spits out and just eats the people food. Iím starting to give up hope on finding a brand and was wondering if he can just have people food and supplemented with a vitamin daily? Or, does anyone have an suggestions for a good wet dog food for a picky Yorkie like my little guy?

If you want to home cook I would check out balanceit.com they have the recipes and the supplements. Justfoodfordogs.com also has a DIY kit with the recipe and supplements. Petco also sells the Just Food for Dog DIY kits. How awesome of you to rescue this baby and do all this for him.

I am feeding Dr. Harvey's Veg-To-Bowl. You follow the simple measuring instructions, rehydrate with water and add the protein and oil of your choice. In about 8 minutes your furkid has a yummy home prepared meal. Boredom isn't a problem 'cause you control the flavored by the protein. Food hound Lollie and Ms. Pickypants Lacie look forward to mealtimes.
Dr. Harvey is an awesome company to do business with - helpful, friendly staff are a phone call or email away. You can order a 6.5 oz sample for $3.95 which is the starter for 4 to 5 meals. WWW.drharveys.com
