Are the gorgeous Pomeranians hypoallergenic?

Whenever people talk about Pomeranian hair loss, the inevitable question is asked: are Pomeranians hypoallergenic dogs, is this breed allergy friendly?

It is a fact that there are few hypoallergenic dogs. All dogs lose dander and therefore can cause allergies. In pet allergy, symptoms are caused by a reaction to animal dander (epithelium) and feathers. There are also allergens in the saliva and urine of animals. Inhalation of the allergens causes the allergy symptoms.

Although all dogs can cause allergies, the best dogs for someone with allergies, according to the American Kennel Club’s list, are the: Chinese Crested Dog, Irish Water Spaniel, Afghan Greyhound, Peruvian Inca Orchid, American Hairless Terrier, Bichon Frise, Bedlington Terrier, Maltese, Kerry Blue Terrier, Portuguese Water Dog, Poodle, Lagotto Romagnolo, Xoloitzcuintli, Giant Schnauzer, Standard Schnauzer, Coton de Tulear and the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.

Do Pomeranian dogs cause allergies?

The question of whether Pomeranian dogs are hypoallergenic must be answered in the negative, nor are they on this list. Therefore, if you have allergies, it is wise to come in contact with these dogs at the breeder for long enough. This way you will know better how you react to a Pomeranian.

As with any animal, pomeranians have dander, but this is not related to their hair or how much they can shed. Skin flakes are dead skin cell flakes that mammals constantly shed. It has similarities to human dandruff, but is almost impossible to be seen by human eyes.

Dander, not animal hair, causes people to have pet allergies.

Are Pomeranians allergy-friendly?

If you have pet allergies, you can still have a Pomeranian as a pet if you keep your allergies under control. This may be by taking measures to reduce dander. Are Pomeranians hypoallergenic? No! Dander is always created, but with the actions you take, you don’t have to worry about it.

Are pomeranians good for allergy sufferers?

If you have had a Pomeranian with you for a while and you are suffering from flared allergies, there are specific steps to stop the annoying side effects. Coat grooming is the very first step. Brush your dogs coat as often as you can so that you have a better chance of collecting dander and fur before it gets into the living areas of your home.

Pomeranians have a thick, double coat and will shed once or twice a year. They are a much better dog choice for people with allergies compared to dogs with smooth coats that lose hair daily.

Regular grooming will help stop the shedding of his coat and dander. Brush your dog daily, but do not bathe him too much, as this will cause dry skin and even more dander.

8 Methods for reducing Pomeranian allergens

  1. Daily hair care. This significantly reduces allergens, especially if you use a product like Allerpet. Washing them weekly will also remove dander.
  2. Instead of letting your beloved pet wander through the house and climb over all the furniture, buy him his own bed.
  3. Ban your bedroom. You may not like sleeping without your pet on the bed, but banning him from entering your bedroom will make it an allergen-free space.
  4. Buy a HEPA filter. A HEPA air cleaner is a wise investment because it traps a lot of pet dander.
  5. Vacuuming. Keep surfaces clean by regularly vacuuming possible dog hair.
  6. Wash your hands. Always wash your hands after petting or playing with your Pomeranians to prevent germs, allergens and anything else that may affect you.
  7. Use omega-3 fatty acids. Include omega-3 fish oil in your dog’s diet and you will keep his coat healthy and reduce any dander.
  8. Consider medication … for yourself, not your pet. Your doctor can recommend the best allergy medications for pets.

If you follow the basic tips here, you will minimize the allergies you may experience, no thanks to your pet’s dander.
