If your Pomeranian likes to eat red and ripe tomatoes, this is not a problem because there are no harmful substances inside them. However, if your Pomeranian’s tomatoes are not fully ripe and showing a little green, they should be 100% off-limits for your Pomeranian. The reason green tomatoes are dangerous for the Pomeranian is due to the fact that they contain a substance called solanine.
Solanine is found within the leaves and stem of a tomato plant and can cause health problems in your Pomeranian, including gastrointestinal problems, heart effects, loss of coordination, muscle weakness, tremors and seizures. If you grow tomato plants in your home or garden, make sure your Pomeranian can’t get close enough to eat them.
So how much should you feed your Pomeranian? Your veterinarian should always be your first resource for answering this question, as the amount will vary based on age, weight, and other factors. However, a general rule of thumb is about ½ cup of high quality kibble per pound of weight. This will be your total for the day, so it should be spaced between feedings.
How many fruits can I give my Pomeranian?
There are a few things that are important to remember when giving your Pomeranian any type of fruit: Your Pomeranian should never have more than 10% of his daily calories in fruit.
Most fruits contain a lot of fiber that your Pomeranian may not be used to. If they eat too much fruit, it can cause an upset stomach or diarrhea.
You should always cut the fruit into small pieces, especially for Pomeranian puppies, in order to avoid the risk of choking.
Feeding your Pomeranian canned food
With palatability in mind, a good part of your Pomeranian’s diet should be derived from canned food. Again, avoid filling when choosing canned foods and place more emphasis on protein composition. This is particularly important when purchasing canned food for puppies that have a much smaller stomach capacity.
You should periodically supplement your dog’s diet with supplements. These supplements should have rich vitamin and protein content. Calcium is one of those crucial vitamins, especially for growing Pomeranians.
Avoid feeding Pomeranians these supposed chews to clean their teeth. The reason is that Pomeranians died after eating these products, as they caused intestinal obstruction.
I used to believe that leftover meat was a great treat for my Pomeranians when I was preparing meals in the kitchen. However, I recently discovered that this is not true.
