When bringing home a new puppy, always feed the food you get from the breeder. When changing food do so gradually over a week or longer, so as not to give them an upset stomach. Here at Woodland Maltese we feed Purina Pro Plan or Royal Canin to all our adult dogs and puppies.

Besides feeding a quality food we have also started giving our dogs NuVet Plus , a supplement that helps to support the immune system.  It comes in a chewable wafer that will eliminate many health problems that may strike your pet such as, itching, hot spots, allergies, arthritis, digestive problems, heart disease, and tumors.  To us this product is a vital ingredient to insuring we produce the most beautiful, happy, and health puppy possible, giving them the best start in life we can.  Our hope is that all of our puppies will continue NuVet Plus for the rest their life.
It is important to get water from the breeder's home or to buy bottled drinking water when you bring your puppy home. This is also a good idea when traveling - a change of water can make any dog sick.
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is common in small breed puppies.  It can be caused by stress or not eating properly.  Symptoms can include muscle weakness, twitching, depression and even collapse.  Emergency at home treatment until the puppy can be brought to your veterinarian is light corn syrup, which can be absorbed quickly through the oral mucosa.
Puppy teeth
Puppy teeth may not always fall out, have your veterinarian pull any extra teeth at the time of spay or neuter.  Teeth should be brushed daily, and be professionally cleaned by your veterinarian from time to time.
Luxating patella
Toy dogs are prone to weak knee joints.  It is best not to let your puppy jump from high places.  Keeping them at a good weight is also important.
Maltese are very small and are susceptible to vaccine and medication toxicity that may result in the death of your pet. Shots should be given no more than three to four weeks apart.  Do not give heartworm or flea/tick medication within the same week as vaccinations.  Never give Rabies at the same time as other vaccinations. Remember the same dosage is used on a 1 pound dog as a 100 pound dog.
Daily grooming is required to keep your Maltese coat clean and snarl free. Many owners will keep them what is commonly referred to as a "puppy cut", where the hair is kept 1-2 inches all over the entire the body, where they then closely resemble a puppy. Though for ones that are keep in a coat for conformation, a lot more upkeep is needed. They often wrap the long hair to keep it from matting and snarling up. Dead hair needs to be brushed and plucked out, as the breed does not shed; the coat will become matted if the dead hair is not removed. 

 In conformation, the coat is parted down the center of the back from nose to tail; the hair should reach the ground. To part the hair, one should stand directly behind the dog to better access whether the part is straight or not. Using a metal comb, start at the beginning of the neck and run it straight down the spine. The coat will fall to either side of the spine to wear you can just comb straight through to the ground. The long hair on the head is made into a topknot held together with rubber bands, bows, or ribbons to allow the Maltese to see. Trimming the hair in between the toes must be done every other week, as they tend to mat very easily.

Maltese owners find it easier if after washing using shampoo, adding a "leave in" conditioner will help alleviate any knots and snarls while combing. It is very important that all shampoo and conditioner residue is completely gone from the coat, as the coat will fray and snarl very easily. Towel dry until damp. Finish drying him off by using a hand dryer. Never use high heat as it will ruin the coat by causing the hair to break off. Use a pin or slicker brush, and brush with the direction (or grain) of the hair; make sure each section is completely dry before moving on. Make sure not to forget his head and feet as these areas tend to mat easily. Also the hair, in the ear canal should be pulled out monthly to prevent ear infections. After bathing always use an ear cleaner to dry the inside of the ear.
Tear stain
Maltese often have tear staining, the dog's eyes water excessively and turns the hair around the eyes a dark brown-black color. It is not really known what causes tear staining, though most owners have found that using bottled water vs. tap water does decrease the amount of staining. There is a product called Angel's Eyes that can be sprinkled on their food. I have found this to be very useful.
When buying a companion dog from us, you must agreed to spay or neuter your pet.
Maltese need very minimal exercise because of their size.  Indoor games, playing in the yard, or a short walk is more than enough to keep them healthy.  As long as they are played with regularly they will stay fit.  They are a wonderful breed for people who live with a limited space (such as apartments or homes with a small yard).
