Do you guys know in average how much protein Maltese needs in their diet? <_< (I'll already left a message for my vet about this one).

I would say my girls are active. we go for walks everyday for about 45min to an hour and I take them to the dog park for about 1hr to 1 1/2 at least on the weekends.

thanks :D

I have no idea, but I DO know that the vet told me to keep Brinkley out of the cat food b/c it had TOO much protein and that was bad for his....ummmm....liver I think he said...

Too much protein can be a problem for these little ones because their livers are teeny-tiny. My daughter's cats are almost 4 times the size of Pico plus cats do need more protein than dogs.

Because Pico has microvascular dysplasia and is on low-protein diet, his protein intake is about 24% so 50% for an adult dog this size sounds about right to me, too.
