I've noticed the past two nights that when I wake up my puppies hair is on my bed, like he is losing it. And when I comb him (daily) it comes out too, it is like a dog that sheds, but I thought Maltese weren't supposed to shed, anyway, my question is, Is this normal? Should I take him to the Vet?

No, hair loss isn't normal. Maltese aren't totally shed free, they lose a dead hair here and there, but he should not be leaving hair on your pillow.

Hair loss can be an indication of a thyroid problem among other things, but this puppy is so young! Did you ever take him to the vet after you got him as we suggested?

I would most definately take him to the vet for this.

Yes, I took him right after and they said he is as healthy as can be, he also went last week for some shots. He is supposed to go again in a week, should I wait or take him immediatly?
