They are just like humans, you work to keep thier immune system strong. There are viruses they can come into contact with just like any other dog. You keep them up to date on their vaccinations,dewormings, heartworm preventative and a healthy diet, as well as the previous response where you look for healthy lines and a responsible breeder that cares and does everything in the world for their babies. And you will enjoy a healthy, happy pom for many, many years!
