Pomeranian Health – Caring for Your Pomeranian

One of the major issues that affect owners of Pomeranian’s is the Pomeranian health issue because they have a tendency to acquire a few different health problems. Many of these issues can be easily dealt with and with proper nutrition and care the tendency to suffer through health issues are greatly reduced. That being said however, there are a few things that you can look for when raising your dog that can make you aware of Pomeranian health issues and how to spot them at an early stage. With proper care and attention, your Pomeranian can live up to 16 years old, as these dogs are one of the very heartiest breeds available.

Pomeranian Health Watch

One of the most common problems of Pomeranian health is that they tend to lose their teeth early and in the same manner as humans get very sick by having unkempt teeth or rotting teeth, dogs are susceptible to acquiring diseases and other health disorders if the teeth are not properly maintained. In order to maintain Pomeranian health it is essential to brush the dog’s teeth at least once a week with a small children’s toothbrush. It is also very important to note that when brushing dog’s teeth it is not recommended to use human toothpaste because it is very bad for the Pomeranian health.

Most people are also lacking in the knowledge that this particular breed of dog has been down bred from much larger dogs that are typically 15-20 pounds. Whenever this occurs within any breed of animal, it can cause health problems however in the particular Pomeranian health it also plays a significant role especially in birthing a litter because they typically need a C-section due to the fact that they have been bred down from a much larger dog.

Another common Pomeranian health issue is that the teeth often do not line up properly which can be caused by a variety of different reasons. This is sometimes confused with the dogs that have teeth out of line and this is a different issue than that because the Pomeranian’s jaw has outgrown the other jaw and this causes a very big over or under bite. This can potentially damage the dog’s career in the limelight however, aside from that it doesn’t pose any huge threat for the Pomeranian health. This is even attributed to not having the puppy’s retaining teeth removed and it forces the jaw to grow at different rates of speed and often ends up with this result.

    A question on Pomeranian puppies? Expenses?
    I wanted to know , if you own a pomeranian, what the expenses would be for a month? like including food, health care, and the license for the dog?
    its my first time, so i just want to know how much the expenses for a pomeranian would come up to?

    Thanks in advance .

    Less than $15 per month including regular vet care. They don’t cost much to feed.

    I don’t own a Pom but any dog would roughly be the same – i paid about $400 for initial supplies and first vet check, and i pay roughly $150 a month for general fees.

    Remember, emergencies can happen at any time and those costs can soar right by the hundreds…. i’ve seen them on up through two grand or more!

    I have 2 Poms. They really aren’t any more expensive than any other puppy. Vets, shots etc. should be about the same. Food depends on the quality food you buy. They don’t eat alot. I groom my own, so I don’t have the cost of grooming.
    They do have some health issues than can come up and cost you $$, like collapsing trachea, broken bones if jumping off couch etc.

    Poms don’t eat much at all. At first I would say a small bg of dog food could last a whole month depending on the puppy’s appetite. The license fee all depends on where you live. Check your city or county’s website or contact the SPCA in your area, they can point you in the right direction. Healthcare depends on the dog. If it has a congenital health problem it will get expensive…REALLY expensive. The good thing about Poms is they are small and unless stepped on they really don’t get injured a lot.

    The one piece of advice I have for a new Pom owner is to make sure you start brushing their teeth at a young age so they get used to it and do it often. Their teeth can go bad very quickly.

    I bought a pom last year while in school and I was spending about
    $250 a month. Here is the break down.

    $50 monthly vet bill (includes heart worm and flea preventatives plus shots)

    $65(one time fee for getting dog registered with pedigree)

    $150 (one time thing for dog things like kennel, dog bowls, treats, toys, bedding, etc…)

    $50 (monthly) puppy classes.

    about $500 a year for a premium diet or around 50 a month

    $50 (one time thing coat supplements)

    $25 (for tear remover)

    $100 in total for clothes

    $10 a month for puppy pads

    $100 miscellaneous in total

    $10 at least a month on things on sale at petsmart

    I hope this helps

    They are expensive I was spending out $1,000 every 4 months but you don’t have to go all out like me just don’t take short cuts with there food it will cost you in the end.

    I use Blue Wilderness dog food. Is this a good decision?
