Unhappy My dog is losing her teeth and I don't know what to feed her.

I have a 10 year old Yorkshire Terrier and she has lost several teeth. i have been told this is normal for the breed. However I am having great difficulty finding her the best form of nutition as she can no longer bite dry food. I have tried the pouches and tubs of many different soft food manufacturers but she either doesn't like it or it is too rich for her and she gets a bad tummy. Any ideas please.

If she's loosing teeth, it's due more to lack of regular brushing and dental care than type of food.

Go see a vet. They probably can't clean them now, due to her age, but they will sort this out she she isn't in pain. Likely, you need to soak her kibble, or feed her wet food, so that this is less painful. I am not a vet. Go see one.
