Recommend dog food for Pomeranian

January 21st, 2009, 11:12 PM
I'm currently feeding mine with Nutrience Junior, but I'm trying to find something better. I heard of Timberwolf Organic, but I'm not sure which type would be the best for my Pom.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

For smallish dogs I like "Just a wee bit" by solid gold.

This is a bit of a description I pulled up:

Solid Gold Just a Wee Bit Small Breed Adult Maintenance Dog Food
15 lbs.
SKU: 431311
From America's leader in holistic pet nutrition since 1974 comes Solid Gold Just a Wee Bit Small Breed Adult Maintenance Dog Food made with Bison, Salmon Meal, Millet, Amaranth, Barley and Brown Rice. Ideal for Small Breed Adult Dogs, to maintain total health. Nutritionally Complete and Balanced: Animal feeding tests using Association of American Feed Control Officials procedures substantiate that Solid Gold Just a Wee Bit Small Breed Adult Maintenance Dog Food provides complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs. No wheat, no soybeans, no corn, no animal fat, no poultry fat, no by-products, no sugar added, no preservatives added, no salt, no sunflower oil.

I find that Pom's fur gets sort of dryish and dull when you don't feed them a high end food but that's my :2cents:

I prefer to feed a kibble that is made at the company's own manufacturing plant. These are the only ones that come to mind at the moment ....

1. Orijen and Acana made by Champion Pet Foods

2. Innova, EVO and California Natural made by Natura Pet Products

I know that you are getting good advice on for food for your Pomeranian, but what I did when we were thinking digestive enzyme at 7 months for our Eskimo - he is a smooth operator - went to the American Eskimo specific site and did a search and found several Eskies who had same issues and as it happened my groomer carried one of the foods highly recommended for his breed and this problem. So I bought the food and while he does go a little more than normal (takes after his human Daddy!) no need for a digestive aid. This is where I found out also that bottled/filtered water will help prevent yellow staining - at least on a small Standard Eskimo. Wouldn't hurt to check out a Pomeranian site just to see what has worked for others. I lurk on the Eskie site to see what is new and horrible with Eskies.

Hi there, I have three poms at the moment. Well two of them are on raw my foster pom is on SG wee bit, just as u were recommended above. It's a great food because it contains salmon which keeps her coat looking amazing. Just my thoughts. Good Luck!
