A sick Pomeranian is never any fun. -For you or your little one- However as Mommy’s to our babies we have the duty of looking after and taking care of our little ones! Today I’m talking about how to tell if your Pomeranian has an upset tummy and what we as Mommy’s do to help our fur-babies feel better!
The one time I would love it if my Pomeranian could talk is when they are sick. It would be awesome if they could just tell me where it hurts and what it feels like! Because Pomeranians can’t talk to us by using words, we have to learn how to read their body language. When my girls are not feeling well they are usually very sluggish and sleepy. I can tell when Maggie is sick if I ask her if she wants to go “bye bye” and she just lays in her bed. Yoki won’t move from her bed if she’s not feeling well, and Sophia sleeps much more than usual. (If Sophia sleeps in past 8:30am I know somethings wrong! She is a ball full of energy in the mornings!)
Some other key signs of your Pomeranian being sick is loose stool, throw up, no appetite/not eating dog
food, and drinking an excess amount of water. Fresh water is something your Pomeranian should ALWAYS have available.
Another thing you should always keep available in your pantry at home is white rice. (This is a staple in my house) I fix a little white rice in the morning for the girls if they are not feeling well. Along with the white rice I’ll mix in boiled chicken. This is a great alternative for your Pomeranian when their stomach isn’t feeling well. Because the chicken and rice meal is bland, your Pomeranian will be able to digest it well.
If my Pomeranians refuses to eat the chicken and rice and won’t drink water I make them chicken broth (and usually call the vet) The chicken broth will sooth their stomach as well as keep them hydrated. (My girls have never turned their nose up at chicken broth!) Hydration is very important when your Pomeranian is not feeling well. Make sure and keep a close eye on the water bowl, so that it’s always full.
If your Pomeranian’s stomach isn’t feeling better with in a day or two and he/she still can’t keep anything down or if they are not eating, I suggest you call the vet and make an appointment. Your vet may suggest x-rays (Some Pomeranian’s love to chew on things, and may sometime swallow them and they can get stuck inside.) So plan on spending a little cash to make sure you’re little one is safe! I set up a savings account for the Pomeranian’s when I first started rescuing them. Always good to have cash on hand for any kind of emergency!
