Unlike other types of pets, the Pomeranian does not require any type of special diet although some care and attention still needs to be implemented to keep the little fellow in tiptop shape.
Pomeranians have a reputation for being picky eaters. However, if the dog owner understands the basics about a dog diet, there should be no reason why the Pomeranian can't get the proper nutrition it needs. Dogs are carnivores in general, and therefore your Pomeranian will reject plant based foods, especially raw ones. As a rule, less raw plant based foods and more meat based foods for your Pomeranian should help maintain its appetite.
If you worry that your Pomeranian is not getting the vitamins and nutrients it needs from fruits and vegetables, there are processed dog foods in the market that contain half digested plant based dog foods that are perfect for your Pomeranian's digestive system. Some dogs, including Pomeranians, are allergic to some plant based foods like corn and soy beans; therefore, you need to watch out for the signs of this allergy.
If you see your Pomeranian licking its paws a lot, rubbing its nose on your carpet, or worse, vomiting after eating plant products, this could be a tell tale sign of dog food allergies. Forget about feeding your Pomeranian fresh fruits and vegetables because it is better off without them. You can feed your Pomeranian fresh raw chicken or turkey meat, or just cooked meat.
Pomeranian puppy diet is no different from the adults. However, you need to introduce it gradually to your puppy. Do not give raw foods to your puppy because its stomach is still not developed enough to digest such food. So you should give your puppy dry, cooked foods in small amounts at a time, like cooked chicken or cooked lamb. Take away the uneaten food after 15 minutes, and always leave it enough fresh water all the time.
Another very important thing to consider about your Pomeranian's diet is whether it causes tooth problems. Dry food is recommended for Pomeranians as it provides the necessary nutrition for the dog while keeping tooth problems at bay. Providing mainly "human food" to your Pomeranian can lead to a variety of health issues, with liver diseases at the top of the list. It is advisable to stick with a specialized dog food. This should keep your dog's teeth and gums healthy.
The Pomeranian has a tendency to overindulge when it enjoys the food, making it rather difficult for owners to maintain a proper diet. You should be aware that this breed of dog doesn't require so much food. All you need to do is give just enough food for your Pomeranian to stay healthy, and make sure that water is always available.
