Unfortunately, Pomeranians can be prone to tooth problems. Tooth loss and bacterial buildup is not uncommon in these little dogs so you should take extra care to make sure your pet hasrepparttar proper dental care. Brush your dogs teeth daily with a specially formulated enzymatic tooth paste that fights bacteria and have yearly dental checks and scaling if necessary.

The Pomís eyes are another area where you should pay some special attention. Like most small dogs, discharge fromrepparttar 141413 eye can accumulate causing staining and, sometimes a goopy mess. Cleanrepparttar 141414 area aroundrepparttar 141415 eye daily with a Q-tip (be careful not to get too close torepparttar 141416 dogs eye).

Many Poms suffer from hypothyroidism which can cause other problems and should be checked by your vet. Some Poms lose patches of hair as they grow older. This usually starts atrepparttar 141420 back and moves forward. If your Pom sounds like he is coughing then he may have a collapsing trachea which is not uncommon in this breed.

Fur

Brushing your Pomeranian every day is a good way to bond with your pet as well as insure his coat is healthy and looks good. Poms have a double coat that can easily become matted so brushing is necessary. A once a week Ė or every couple of weeks Ė bath is a nice way to keep your Pom smelling and looking good! Donít forget to groom around his paws and tail area as well as clip his nails.

Eyes

Like most small dogs, Poms can have a buildup of discharge from their eyes that can cause a lumpy mess. This buildup can stainrepparttar fur and, although my Pomís never said anything, Iím sure it must be uncomfortable. To avoid this mess, simply cleanrepparttar 141410 eye area each day with a Q-tip. Be sure not to get too close torepparttar 141411 eye as you donít want to accidentally poke your pet inrepparttar 141412 eye!
