All Pomeranians shed.
Either you get a drizzle or it’s a thunderstorm. It is a natural process. They lose old fur to make room for new ones. Some Poms lose more, others less. It all depends on their breed type and season of the year. If you are planning to get a dog, you should get used to it shedding regularly. And yes, it is an absolute hassle to have to clean up after it all the time, but it is just nature doing what it has to do.
Some Pom breeds are mainly found in colder areas and have a double layer of fur. The fur faith of the upper fur is soft; However, the upper skin is generally harder and not so “silky”. The main reason for the second layer of fur is to ensure that the Pomeranian is protected from ice and snow before freezing. Siberian Huskies are a prime example of this, they throw a lot at once and do it regularly!
Dogs either have a single or double coat, depending on their breed. Dogs which shed a lot probably have a double coat. Double coated dogs have a top layer and an undercoat. The primer protects them from cold or water or both and tends to fall out with the season. A single coat lacks this undercoat. Typically, these Pomeranians lose less.
Double-coated breeds and those that shed frequently include Shetland Sheepdogs, Shepherd Dogs, Huskies, Akitas, Labs, and Golden Retrievers. Some single-tier breeds lose a lot, others only minimally. Examples of the former are Dalmatians and Pug. Those who do not shed much are Poodles, Maltese, Bichon fur styles, and Shih Tzus.
Fur loss for Pomeranians generally occur in the four key stages:
- Phase 1 (Anagen phase): Fur is starting to grow
- Phase 2 (Catagen phase): Fur reaches a transitional state
- Phase 3 (Telogen phase): Fur growth ceases
- Phase 4 (Exogenous phase): Old fur falls out
Some dog breeds tend to shed more than others, but all Poms lose fur.
Causes for Fur Shedding
Weather and Season of the year
People falsely assume that a dog with long fur will lose more fur. It’s not like that, it only seems that way because of the long length of the fur. A Pomeranian that drops fur frequently is due to its longer fur growth. Sometimes, fur gets tangled in the coat of the Pomeranian and does not fall into the ground.
The season of the year also plays a role in the shedding process. Dogs will lose more fur during the warmer months to keep them cool. Your Pom has to shed her coat at different seasons to adapt to changing conditions. Most likely, it will fall the most in autumn and spring. In the fall, she has to make room for a thicker winter coat, while in the spring she has to dig this coat off and get lighter for the summer.
During the cold season, dogs need as much fur as possible during the winter to keep warm. However, as summer approaches, dogs tend to lose their fur because they no longer need it and actually overheat it. By removing the fur, the dog can cool the body more easily and thereby supply air to the skin. If it is unable to shed fur and is overheated, dehydration may occur at this point.
Apart from the above, there are several other factors that can accelerate the shedding of a dog’s fur. A bad diet is one of them. A dog will lose more fur if its food intake is inappropriate. If a dog is exposed to stressful conditions, your dog could also fall ill. Skin problems, mange, shear fungus and even
cancer can cause fur shedding. Keep in mind that female dogs lose more weight than male dogs.
Removing dead cells
Poms are naturally trying to remove dead skin cells that it carries around with it The human loses dead skin cells on the face, on the fingernails, etc., so that the new cells can regrow again. For Poms, however, the coat can only go up to a certain breed. They remove dead skin cells and throw off their fur; As a result, newer fur can be re-waxed. When all dead skin cells have been removed, your dog can finally grow new fur for the new winter season. This is very similar to a life cycle, only with fur!
