Pomeranian-specific dietary needs

Protein

The dog world’s true extrovert, Pomeranians need plenty of energy to fuel their gregarious attitude. After all, how is this friendly pup supposed to greet everyone if they’re sluggish and weak from poor nutrition and inadequate protein?
Ollie serves up the best in human-grade meat proteins in all their recipes to ensure your outgoing pooch has the necessary energy for performing their favorite activities, without packing on extra calories and pounds. Gently cooked turkey, chicken, beef, and lamb—and their nutrient-rich organ meats—dish up the perfect nutrition to help keep your Pomeranian’s muscles, joints, and bones strong as they go about their visitation rounds.

Fat

Although Pomeranians are prone to obesity and hypothyroidism, dietary fat plays a key role in their overall health. Essential fatty acids, which can be found in Ollie’s recipes as cod liver oil and chia seeds, provide important nutrients for brain, heart, and joint function, in addition to a healthy coat. The omega-3 fatty acids found in Ollie’s diets will benefit your Pomeranian’s thick double coat, and help minimize your tiny teddy bear’s shedding.

Carbohydrates

Ollie doesn’t believe in empty fillers, which is why their carbohydrate sources are carefully chosen to ensure your Pomeranian receives filling energy in every bite. These pint-sized pups are prone to hypoglycemia if not fed several small meals throughout the day, but the long-lasting carb sources and dietary fiber deliver sustained energy to prevent dangerous drops in blood sugar. You can count on Ollie to provide high-fiber, nutrient-dense complex carbohydrates in the form of sweet potatoes, carrots, kale, and spinach, so your pooch has all the resources they need to live their best life.

Common health issues that can be mitigated with proper diet

Although your vivacious Pomeranian may refuse to let illness slow them down, a proper diet can help keep them in tip-top shape and ward off various conditions. Illnesses that can be alleviated with high-quality nutrition include:

  • Obesity and hypothyroidism— High-fiber complex carbohydrates and lean protein sources provide filling nutrition with minimal calories to help ward off obesity and prevent weight gain associated with hypothyroidism.

  • Heart disease — Pomeranians are prone to congestive heart failure, but a diet that contains taurine, L-carnitine, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids can boost cardiac health and function.

  • Luxating patella — Pomeranians are prone to luxating patellas, which can move in and out of place during normal activity. However, the essential fatty acids found in cod liver oil and chia seeds promote strong, healthy joints and mitigate their risk of patellar problems.

  • Collapsing trachea — As Pomeranians age, the cartilaginous rings in their trachea can weaken, causing tracheal collapse and breathing difficulties. Maintaining a healthy weight through lean proteins, complex carbs, and moderate fats will reduce the pressure placed on a structurally unsound trachea. 

  • Skin disease — Pomeranians may develop skin issues, but the omega-3 fatty acids in cod liver oil, chia seeds, and eggs provide anti-inflammatory benefits and are the building blocks for a strong, healthy skin barrier.

  • Hypoglycemia — Complex carbs and nutrition-dense superfoods provide sustainable fuel that slowly releases energy to prevent dangerous drops in your Pomeranian’s blood sugar.

Your dog is your best friend, and you want to do everything possible to keep them healthy and happy. Packed with fresh ingredients and high-quality nutrients, an Ollie diet may help your Pomeranian avoid health issues.
