Pom-A-Pug Breed Maintenance
The Pom-A-Pug hybrid can be in the low to moderate category of maintenance, with a coat that will likely only require brushing once a week, weekly ear checks and cleaning with a cotton ball and approved ear-wash, weekly toenail checks with trimming as needed and teeth-brushing at least twice weekly (daily is better). Keeping up with teeth brushing and the professional examinations and cleanings will help reduce the development of periodontal disease and the tooth loss which accompanies it. This hybrid is generally pretty healthy, not having the respiratory issues which plague the Pug parent, with the most often encountered health problem being related to seasonal allergies and skin conditions. They are considered low shedders, not hypoallergenic, low drooling rate and low smell rate.
