Pomeranians are generally a healthy, hardy, and long-lived breed often, Pomeranians live 15 or 16 years.
The teeth of the Pomeranian can be the cause of serious health concerns for the breed. The teeth must be meticulously cared for through frequent cleaning to prevent the teeth from falling out at a rather early age. Problems with the teeth can cause heart problems which may lead to an early death.
Pomeranians are known to have a higher likelyhood of suffering from seizures either from idiopathic epilepsy or hypoglycemia. Another common ailment is a dislocated patella.
