When I adopted my two Poms in June, I had to have them shaved completely because they were terribly matted and there was no way around it. My female is starting to get her wonderful coat again, but the male is just getting hair on his back ; his legs and part of his rump have hair. Is this the way it sometimes grows back? Can someone help me ease my mind? I am terribly worried that my "Rusty" will not have all his lovely coat as before. Thanks.
I knew a woman 2-3 years ago who had a pom with a ratty looking coat; the dog was old, had been checked by a vet, nothing wrong. She looked at skin closely, thought she saw slight inflamation around hair follicles, started to use emu oil shampoo, and then emu oil. I came by to visit after some months and thought she had bought a new pup (figuring old dog had passed). Not only was it the same dog, but she had done same for husband (bald, nearing 80) and he had fuzz all over his head. They showed me....
Where can we buy Emu shampoo and oil?
I know you can find it on Amazon, but you might want to try a few other places first. I would start with the local farmer's market and the local natural foods store. They would be the most likely places. After that, try a beauty supply store. They might also have it.
Is your male pom neutered? If not, then this could be the cause. Look up either a typical cushings disease, or alopecia x. Usually neutering, along with certain supplements takes care of the problem. You can obtain more information by looking up Dr. Jack Oliver at the University of Tennessee.
have you talked to your vet? maybe the groomer is using the wrong shampoo. There may be an under lying skin condition. one of my doxies had to have allergy testing and had her entire left side shaved. that was the middle of january. i started using a diet supplement called Missing Link. I also use a product Vitacoat. Both of these I get through a catalog & online www.DrsFosterSmith.com.
Litlle Pudge's hair is about 90% back to normal.
Hope this helps.
How old is your pom?Their full coats don't come in until they are over a year old.I had and pom and he didn't have a full coat until he was over a year old
It's possible that you are keeping your dog too warm. My pom has gobs of hair and I blame it on the fact that I keep my house fairly cool all winter and very cool in the summertime. In fact, he has so much hair that I have to use a thinning comb on him quite often!
I second having her checked out by a vet. Also, lowering the temperature may help as well.
It may also be that she just isn't going to get a huge coat. Our pom (pure-bred) has a nice thick coat, but I see tinier poms with just as much fur as our larger dog! If you live in a warm environment, having a shorter coat may be a blessing in disguise. We've had to trim our pom's coat down to an inch every summer or she refuses to MOVE and is obviously miserable.
My Pom is having the same problem. I keep the house cool (my husband is from Canada). I have had her checked by the vet, Her hair was fine but I noticed that the hair was not growing back after grooming. She has tufts right now. Spice is 7 years old. Please help if you know anything that will help my Spice.
Editor's Note: Here is a link to a site that has information on Alopecia which is a possible cause of this:
I have a Pomeranian as well and he has the same problem. I was just wondering have you ever had her hair cut? My dogs hair was cut and after that his hair has not been growing back, I took my dog to a groomer and she said i should try a treat/food that is for the skin and coat. Also using spry when grooming his hair. Talk to your groomer about any of these products.
Tip: Don`t get your dogs hair shaved. Even if there are knots. Instead use spray to help keep knots out.

i had my pom groomed about 3 months ago and it is not growing back on his back. i am going to try the omega 3 oil in his food but i see that a lot of you had this problem but didnt state as to whether it was after a cut or not. he has been neutered for about 4 years now. the last haircut i noticed it didnt grow back as fast as the rest of his hair but this time it is just not growing out at all. any help would be appreciated.
