As a Breed Club we are aware that certain problems exist within our Breed. The main problems are: patella luxation (which is common to many toy breeds), open fontanelle and skin problems.
It is The Scottish Pomeranian Club’s policy to discourage breeding from affected lines by our members, although we have no jurisdiction over non-members.
Although there is no separate Health Committee, the Committee of The Scottish Pomeranian Club, as a whole, are aware of the problems and are actively on the alert to create knowledge of these issues among Club members and others who may purchase Pomeranian puppies.
The current breed representative and Health Co-ordinator for Pomeranian’s is Mrs Julie Sparrow (Casarow). The Health Co-ordinator will liaise between all our breed clubs and The Kennel Club regarding any current or emerging health issues within our breed.
