The coat of the Pomeranian is similar to the Pekingese and should be brushed regularly (against the hair) to be free and frequent brushing of carpets also increase circulation and help prevent dry skin. Very little cutting is necessary and sufficient to remove loose hair. It should be noted that the Pomeranian sheds his coat thick, plush season, and that the Pomeranian is one of the heavier breeds of shedding toy in the world.

Merle colored dogs can suffer from mild to severe deafness, increased intraocular pressure, ametropia, microphthalmia and coloboma. Merle dogs born from parents who are the two blackbirds can also suffer heart skeletal system disorders and reproductive health.
Luxating patella is another health problem in the Pomeranian breed. Occurs when, through both malformation or trauma, the ridges forming the patellar groove of the knee are important and are too low to allow the patella to sit properly in a safe manner. This can cause the patella to "dislocate" (jump out of the slot) side, which will cause the leg to lock the foot of the soil. As the contraction of the muscles, the patella can not return to his position. The initial pain is caused by the ball to slip through the crests of the femur. Once out of position, the dog feels no pain from a herniated disc.

Other names for this condition include wooly coat, funk, shelter, disease or pseudo-Cushing's syndrome hair loss. This condition affects men more than women Pomeranians, and may be inherited. Although most affected dogs show signs of puberty following may occur at any age. Other conditions may mimic this condition, such as Cushing syndrome, hypothyroidism, chronic skin infections, hormonal and reproductive disorders.
Another common complaint is cryptorchidism in males Pomeranians. This is when one or both testicles do not descend into the scrotum. This is by surgical removal of the retained testis.
