First, environmental factors

We can observe whether the feeding environment is not suitable for Pomeranian feeding? Because the POMERANIAN does not like to eat in direct sunlight, it will affect his appetite, and if the surrounding noise will also make it unable to concentrate on eating, so a lack of appetite in Pomeranian can be affected by factors such as exposure to bright light, the presence of strangers and other animal interference, leading to a reluctance to eat.

Second, the dog food factor

In terms of food, some people are usually too careful to feed Pomeranian, do not dare to change the dog food, for fear of gastrointestinal abnormalities, so always feed the same dog food. And then the taste is more simple, which allows Pomeranian to eat for a long time, there will be Anorexia, leading to a refusal to eat phenomenon. In addition, if the food we choose has an unpleasant smell, is not fresh, or contains a large amount of chemical flavoring, these irritants can cause a burning sensation in Pomeranian’s stomach, it also causes the Pomeranian to refuse to eat.

Third, unscientific feeding habits

If I give a Pomeranian food from the human table on a regular basis, it will refuse to eat dog food because of the heavy taste and salty ingredients in our human food, the POMERANIAN will then lose interest in dog food if it is used to human food and has a watery taste if it eats dog food.

Fourth, disease

When a pomeranian refuses to eat, its condition must be monitored at all times. If it is accompanied by fever, limb weakness, vomiting, or diarrhea, this is a precursor reaction to a serious illness in Pomeranian’s body, at this point we should immediately take Pomeranian to the pet hospital for treatment, in order to prevent the exacerbation of the disease.
