Our expert says:
For a Yorkie, probably no (not detrimental). Try to get her to at least eat other food as well. Always remember though that a lot of research goes into commercial pet foods, and puppy foods have been put together in a very particular way, because it is the ideal combination of nutrients for that particular age and size of dog. This is of much greater importance in the large breed dogs where the correct diet must be fed to avoid joint and bone problems. That type of problem is uncommon or rare in small breeds like the Yorkie.
