The following pages represent responses gathered from the Internet over the past year. Each of the answers (which may be an edited-down version) will be followed by the individual's responses. Any comments that I might add will be in [brackets]. It is hoped that by centralizing this information into a permanent archive, Pom owners may be directed here to get the answers they need in caring for their new Pomeranian. Should you find additional information or links to other sites that would be helpful to a Pomeranian owner, please copy the information or its URL into an email message and send it to me. If you wish to add a comment to any of the questions listed here, feel free to email me that information as well. We reserve the right to edit (to save space), or reject inappropriate material, or answers that do not add significant value to the subject. Questions and answers submitted should be short and concise. Unless otherwise directed, we will include the persons name and email address who has made a submission to our FAQs. Breeding Pomeranians is a subject best left to those who devote their lives and finances to this extremely time-consuming hobby. As such, those wishing to breed their pets (pet quality) will find no support on this page.

These pages contain a wealth of experiences shared by Pomeranian owners throughout the world. However, it is not a substitute for proper vet diagnosis or treatment of an illness. Always discuss any medical problems with your veterinarian immediately. Due to the small size of the Pomeranian, you may be too late to treat certain illnesses if you delay taking your Pom to the vet.

Pom FAQs will continue to change and grow. Please be sure to bookmark this page for future reference. The FAQs page is subcategorized into the following table of contents.
