Be sure to read the Pomeranian food section. This breed can have food allergies or simply dislike the taste of a certain dog food. Some experimenting may need to be done to find the high quality dog food that is best for your particular dog
Fillers - The main difference between high quality and low quality manufactured dog food is the amount of fillers. Fillers are basically empty, useless ingredients which "pump" up the actual food itself and cause your Pom to feel full...when in fact they are ingesting worthless elements which contain zero nutrients!
These pass right through your Pomeranian's body and come out via the other end.
Behavioral Issues - The behavioral issues of a Pomeranian eating grass and/or eating feces can be directly connected to the dog's diet. As the Pom is ingesting those fillers found in manufactured food, it will make your Pom feel full, but his or her body will be craving nutrients that the fillers did not contain.
Allergies - Allergies to artificial coloring and preservatives are common allergies that affect toy breed dogs as the Pomeranian. This can cause upset stomachs, vomiting, diarrhea, and external symptoms such as dry skin and a dull coat. Many cases can be severe; but by following healthy home cooking methods you can make sure your Pom is receiving the nutrients he needs, while keeping those nasty chemicals out of his body.

Teething - Why watch your Pomeranian suffer through the teething phase, when you can make tasty home made treats that will greatly help with discomfort.
Marketing Schemes - Puppy food, adult food, senior food, pregnancy food...When you home cook for your Pomeranian, you do not need to worry about the age of your dog. These recipes fit any Pomeranian of any age.
