Welcome to spoiledmaltese!!

Grooming is a major issue with Maltese! Casper has a coat that is about 1/2 way grown out. When I give him a bath it takes me about 1.5 hours to brush his teeth, wash his face, trim his nails, clean his ears, trim the hair in the feet pads, shampoo, condition, brush, puta bow in his hair, and blow dry! He has learned to tolerate this really well. Maltese must have the hair that grows in their ear canals plucked because it can lead to ear infections.

Make sure to have Nutrical ready for hypoglycemia. Sometimes they don't want to eat the first couple of days. Give your new dog a few drops of Nutrical until they are eating regurlarly.

Good Luck! :D
