|I'm purchasing a Pom puppy sometime in May. According to the breeder, the puppy is charting around 3 to 3.5 pounds when she is an adult. Is this too light and will her weight effect her health as an adult? My last Pom was about 7.5 pounds, a weight I consider normal for a Pom. She had several health problems including luxating patellas that needed to be corrected with three surgeries ( once in her right leg, twice in her left.), hypglycemia, and kidney stone. Her death was very unexpected, we had her kidney stones removed and she never recovered from the surgery. It was a very hard and difficult time. Til this day, I wonder what we could have done differantly to save her or prevent the kidney stones from even forming.
Anyway, moving ahead, does anyone think I'm worring too much about the light weight? Is there questions I should ask the breeder before I go through with the purchase? She seems to be a reputable breeder, and both of the puppies parents live with her. I dont know if I can go through heart break again.
Thanks for any and all answers
