Pomeranians are extroverted and confident, and though they may love being involved in your cat’s life more than your cat might wish, they generally get along well with felines.

Prone to IssuesGenerally Healthy

What Diseases are Pomeranians Prone To?

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes: This is a condition that causes the head of the femur (located in a dog’s hind leg) to spontaneously degenerate. Over time, this will lead to erosion of the hip joint and arthritis. A Pomeranian suffering from Legg-Calve-Perthes will become lame, limps while walking, and experiences pain when moving the hip joint. Surgery is the most effective treatment for the disorder.
  • Patellar luxation: Also known as slipped kneecaps, patellar luxation is a common problem in many dog breeds. It occurs when slight abnormalities cause the knee joint to slide in and out of place. This can cause pain and occasional lameness. Surgical treatment is available for severe cases although many dogs lead normal lives without treatment.
  • Alopecia X: There is a very rare genetic disorder that has led to some Pomeranians having Alopecia X, which turns their skin black and causes their hair to fall out.
  • Others: Trachea collapse, allergies, epilepsy, eye problems such as cataracts and dry eyes, gum disease, and early tooth loss also affect Pomeranians. Special attention should be made to grooming their teeth, ears, and eyes to avoid some of these issues.
