• Teddy will be turning 14 in June. What is the life span for Yorkies? What is the average medical expenses per year thru the end of his life?

    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There is a big variation in the life span and average medical expenses depending on the size and overall health of the pet. Your vet knows your pet and they will be better able to give you the answers that are more specific to your pet and his needs.
