Pomsky Health: Food Choices.
A balanced diet is essential to ensure the good health of a Pomsky. Feeding them with high-quality kibble that is tailored to their weight, age, and overall health is a good place to start. It's also important to take into consideration if they have any particular health issues, or if they have been sterilized or not.
Splitting their daily food intake into two meals, one in the morning and one in the evening, is ideal for a Pomsky's digestion and overall health. This can also help prevent overeating and potential weight gain.
It's important to note that the ideal ration for a Pomsky can vary depending on the individual. Some Pomskies are able to self-regulate and won't overeat, so in that case, you can give them their kibble freely. However, others may need a more precise portion size, which is often indicated on the back of the kibble bag.
It's true that small treats here and there are always appreciated!
There are other ways to feed your Pomsky, such as BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food or Bones And Raw Food) or homemade meals. It is important to consult with your veterinarian to ensure that the rations are balanced and that the dog does not lack certain nutrients that are essential for the Pomsky's good health.
In any case, and to ensure the good health of the Pomsky, we recommend choosing a high-quality dog food such as the brand Croquette France, which we use for our dogs and puppies: CHATS | Francecroquette (francecroquettes.com)
Maintaining your Pomsky is essential to ensure their good health.
The Pomsky is a crossbreed between two fairly robust primitive breeds: the Husky and the Spitz. They are not particularly sensitive to either hot or cold temperatures, as their coat adapts to different climates and seasons. This means that they can accompany you on your various adventures, but they can also live in Canada or in the south of France.
In terms of caring for a Pomsky, it will be necessary to occasionally brush their coat, especially during their shedding period, which occurs when transitioning from hot to cold and vice versa, as the dog will lose a lot of hair. This shedding typically occurs twice a year, so brushing should be done every two days, or even daily. Of course, if you choose a Pomsky with a long coat, you will have to provide more care than if you opt for a Pomsky with a short coat.
Some Pomskies, like Spitz breeds, tend to have watery eyes. Therefore, you may need to regularly clean their eyes with a saline solution if that is the case.
As with any other dog breed, regularly giving your Pomsky chew bones can help promote good oral hygiene and dental care.
In any case, it is recommended to have regular check-ups with a veterinarian and groomer to provide necessary care for your Pomsky.

Pomsky Health: A Crossbreed Resulting in Robust Health
It is often human-driven selective breeding that has led to the emergence of genetic diseases in many dog breeds.
Indeed, in order to always conform to the so-called breed standards, humans have induced and weakened the bodies of many dogs. However, the Pomsky, being a crossbreed of two other breeds, currently escapes this drastic selection.
We still have little hindsight, but for the moment, no pathology has been reported. However, it remains important for each breeder to perform Embark testing on their breeding dogs to ensure they are free of genetic disease.
The Pomsky appears to be sensitive at the intestinal level. It is therefore important to provide them with suitable and high-quality nutrition.
The lifespan of a Pomsky is 15 years, like many of their canine counterparts.
