|The Pom is a little dog with a big personality! This tiny fluffy creature has a wedge shaped head and looks like a little fox. With itís bright eyes, it seems like it is always smiling and willing to please. It is intelligent and eager to learn, but a firm hand must be applied or this little darling can become yippy and demanding.|
Along with all this cuteness and fluff, however, go some special grooming needs. While not excessively demanding, the Pomeranian does require some daily attention which you can use as a great excuse to bond with your pet!
It is important that your pet get good dental care. Pomeranians are prone to tooth loss and bacteria build up. If the bacteria is allowed to run unchecked, this can cause problems with your pets overall health. Luckily, maintaining good dental health is easy! Simply buy an enzymatic toothpaste that fights bacteria (your vet can recommend a good brand) and a small tooth brush (I use the one that has a loop that fits on my finger). Try to brush your dogs teeth every day. Have your vet do a dental exam once a year and scaling if necessary.
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.
Like most small dogs, Poms can have a buildup of discharge from their eyes that can cause a lumpy mess. This buildup can stain the fur and, although my Pomís never said anything, Iím sure it must be uncomfortable. To avoid this mess, simply clean the eye area each day with a Q-tip. Be sure not to get too close to the eye as you donít want to accidentally poke your pet in the eye!
