How to promote hair growth on Pomeranians
Pomeranians are adored for their luxurious coats, but it can be distressing to see your beloved pet's hair thinning or falling out. If you're wondering how to promote hair growth in Pomeranians, this blog post is here to help. We'll explore practical steps you can take to support your furry companion in regaining a luscious coat.
- Consult a Veterinarian: First and foremost, schedule a visit with your veterinarian to determine the underlying cause of your Pomeranian's hair loss. Identifying the root issue will allow for targeted treatment and effective hair regrowth. There are many reasons why your Pomeranian might be suffering from hair loss and knowing the cause can help you identify the best approach to help the recovery.
- Optimize Their Diet: A balanced diet is essential for promoting healthy hair growth. Ensure your Pomeranian's meals are rich in high-quality proteins, healthy fats, and essential nutrients. There are many nutrients that affect fur growth and omega-3 is the most notable one. You can find Omega-3 on wild or farmed fish, there is one we recommend and comes in an easy form of oil, it’s the Brilliant Salmon Oil.
- Regular Grooming & Nourishing Products: Maintaining a regular grooming routine stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting hair growth.
Brushing your Pomeranian's coat gently but thoroughly, removing any tangles or mats is essential on helping promote the hair to grow back. A specific oat or coconut based line will be ideal as if the Pom’s coat has undergone thinning and hair loss, it’s more important than ever to avoid harsh products that will have detrimental ingredients in there. We recommend doing a treatment once a week or every two weeks, starting with a nourishing cream from the Doglyness line which is highly nourishing leave-in conditioning cream.
And then following up with a shampoo and conditioner that moisturizes the skin and nourishes the hair. Pro tip: don’t skip the conditioner. Conditioner is meant to help nourish the coat, soothes the hair follicles and help regenerate the natural oils on your dog skin.
- Stay Consistent and Patient: Hair regrowth takes time, so it's essential to remain patient and consistent with the recommended treatments and care. Monitor your Pomeranian's progress and celebrate small milestones along the way. Keep track of what’s working and what's not, it will help you determine what your Pomeranian is lacking and what is working on him.
Remember there is no one formula fits all, skins are very unique and what product works on one Pomeranian might not work on yours but you will find the right formula by staying consistent, keeping track of what you do and by being patient, it can take a long time.
Promoting hair growth in Pomeranians requires a comprehensive approach that focuses on nutrition, grooming, and overall well-being. By consulting with your veterinarian, providing a balanced diet, practicing regular grooming, and ensuring a stress-free environment, you can support your Pomeranian in regaining a beautiful, healthy coat. Remember, patience and consistency are key, and your efforts will be rewarded with a happy and flourishing companion.
