Fresh Food for Pomeranians
It wouldn’t surprise us to discover that Shakespeare wrote, “Though she be but little, she is fierce” about the small-but-mighty Pomeranian. Loyal, funny, loud, and yes, bossy, the pom is a German-bred descendant of the mighty sled dogs of Scandinavia, whose proud demeanor you can still see in the diminutive puff of fur to this day.
A healthy diet of fresh food for your Pomeranian is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with lots of mental stimulation and an abundance of affection.
What’s the best dog food for Pomeranians?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Pom contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Pomeranians
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Pomeranians’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Pomeranian’s odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
Like many dogs, Pomeranians are prone to joint issues, especially hip dysplasia. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Pomeranian.
Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)
For dogs like Pomeranians prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth. Fresh food also means fresher Pom kisses and slobbers!
Know what’s in the bowl
For Pomeranians with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
