Taking advantage of the fact that we took Colette to the veterinarian to be vaccinated today, we find interesting to explain you in a simple way, through a practical vaccinations calendar, in which moment you have to get your Pomeranian vaccinated, as well as tell you which are the adverse reactions in their little bodies to these vaccines. This information will be especially useful to those who have puppies or who will have them soon in your homes, and for those who already have adult Pomeranians, it never hurts to remember it.

HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY POMERANIAN’S DIET?

Lately we have attended with Colette a series of informative talks organized by Espacio Animal, a shop specialized in natural therapies and positive education located in Madrid, Spain. These talks, besides being useful to keep increasing our knowledge, are for charity, since the money collected goes to an animal protection association.

In one of these talks, the expert in veterinary nutrition and dietetics Mónica González Tovar analyzed the different kind of food and proposed us practical suggestions to improve our pets’ diet, no matter what diet we are following, dry, wet, dehydrated or raw. (more…)

DOGGY INTRODUCTIONS: “Host dog” and “Guest dog”

During the summer holidays in a tree hut (post that you can read here), Colette finally met her “French cousin” Sissy, a lovely one-year-old Westie. They did not just meet, also lived under the same roof for a week. It was the first time that Colette was going to live with another pet, so to avoid rows, we took seriously from the beginning how to introduce each other to get along well.

In today’s post, we will give you some tips to take into account in the doggy introductions, which worked really well for us, and that we hope they will help you too. (more…)

‘DOGGY ICE-CREAMS’ FOR THE SUMMER HEAT

One of the best ideas to feed and to hydrate our best friend in the summer heat while he’s having fun is giving him an ice-cream.

There are lots of video tutorials on the Internet to do homemade ice-creams, but this time wanted Colette to taste a processed ice-cream but with a homemade preparation, which contains a 120 grammes tub and a bag with powdered yoghurt and lyophilized fruit (this time, banana).

The final amount obtained is too much for our little Pomeranians, so you can give him 1/3 of the ice-cream at the most….and the rest is for you! : )

Are bananas good for Pomeranians? (more…)
