my pomerarian bites out his own hair, we thought because of fleas, but we have rescently moved, and no flea's here, he seems better after a bath with flea shampoo, I know it is probably allergies, any ideas what too? I have seen other poms with same problem, wonder if it is something genetic? Any help would be greatly apreciated

Ask your vet.

Second, fleas. You may not see them but they can still be there.

Third, stated you have just moved? Stress can cause many problems.

Check with your vet.

It may be fleas or stress or allergies (that narrows it down huh hahah)

Use a comb and look for fleas and flea dirt (poop) check for bite marks.
If your dog has fleas you may find them around the tail area or on the tummy.

Food? What do you feed your pom?
