Basics Of Pomeranian Care

Jun 26, 2008
A Pomeranian puppy can be a great choice for many families. This tiny dog has a big heart that makes him loyal, friendly and eager to please. Pomeranians can get along fairly well with other pets and older children, making them a good fit in many homes today. If you have decided to begin a search for a Pomeranian for your family, there are some basics about the breed that you need to know before you begin interviewing breeders.

However, like any breed, Pomeranians can come with a variety of health issues that are inherent in the breed as well as Pomeranian allergies that can be caused by a variety of factors. By educating yourself in the basics of Pomeranian health issues, you can effectively screen breeders to find those with the healthiest animals and select the best Pomeranian for you.

If you have general knowledge about the types of health issues that the Pomeranian might face, you can question breeders about whether they screen for the problems with all of their dogs. Health problems in regards to the skin, heart and eyes are common in Pomeranians, but by breeding dogs that test negative for these issues, you can go far in preventing them in your own puppy.

The reason that it is important to understand the possible health issues of the Pomeranian is so you can ask breeders whether they screen for certain problems and avoid breeding dogs that test positive for them. This greatly reduces the likelihood that certain health problems will be present in the line that you choose your puppy from. It is also a good idea to know how to recognize the symptoms of Pomeranian allergies, which might include sneezing, wheezing, itching and diarrhea. This way you can treat allergies as soon as they arise, by changing food or checking your dog for fleas.

Ask your breeder if he screens his dogs for some of the most common health issues and whether he keeps dogs that test positive out of the breeding process. Pomeranian allergies are not necessarily hereditary, so it is not as easy to avoid them. However, most Pomeranian allergies result from certain foods or fleas, so they can be easy to treat by simply avoiding the identified culprit.

Bringing a new pet into your home is an important responsibility, and one that you should prepare for accordingly. Part of that preparation will include educating yourself about the types of medical issues that you should be on the lookout for so that treatment can be sought quickly and effectively for any problems that might arise.

This is especially true for Pomeranian allergies, which can have a devastating effect on a dog if they are not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. The good news is that most Pomeranian allergies are fairly easy to identify and treat by removing the culprit causing the reaction, which is often food or fleas.

When it comes to treatment for Pomeranian allergies, a responsible veterinarian will be your link to a healthier, happier pet. Finding a vet that you and your dog are both comfortable working with will allow you peace of mind in knowing that if a medical issue did arise, your beloved pet will be well cared for. This is why the time spent searching for the best vet for you and your dog will be time well spent indeed, and contribute to many long and healthy years with your Pomeranian.
