Coat

The coat of the Maltese should always be white, composed of long, smooth and soft strands. Its tail follows the same pattern as the body and, when they have long fur, they even drag on the ground. Many parents of Maltese, however, choose to leave them with shorter clippings. The baby grooming / puppy grooming is one of the most requested, because in addition to being easier to maintain, it gives the pet a puppy-like appearance. Spots on its coat are common, especially on the "beard", near the muzzle and eyes. Talk to a veterinarian to learn how to avoid this.

Taking Care of a Maltês

The Maltese needs very special care with its fur, which easily forms knots. Brushing them daily is a must to keep their coat beautiful and healthy, as well as avoiding the annoyance caused when there is a “tangle” on their body. Stains from tears and contact with water and food, for example, can be a problem. Today, there are specific products on the market for cleaning the eyes and face, as well as shampoos and pet foods that promise to minimize this issue.
