The Maltese lapdog is a small dog with an amazing personality. She is affectionate, playful and always full of energy. This dog looks like a soft toy that everyone wants to touch. Meanwhile, she is very distrustful of strangers. Maltese lapdogs are very demanding to care for and need constant attention due to their long coat.
Proper care of a Maltese lapdog begins with hygiene procedures. These include regular bathing with a special shampoo and treating the coat with balms and conditioners. These manipulations need to be done as the coat gets dirty, about 1 time per week.
If the dog is not given proper attention, the coat begins to tangle, become dry and dirty. Mats appear, which cause discomfort to the animal. To properly care for your dog's coat, you must have a special brush.
The Maltese lap dog needs to have its nails trimmed twice a month. This should be done carefully so as not to accidentally damage the sensitive part of the nail tissue. This breed has light and transparent claws, so you will see at what level it is better to cut.
Keep your ears clean. To do this, use a special powder, which has an antiseptic effect and facilitates the process of removing impurities. If a lot of sulfur has accumulated in the lapdog's ears, put a few drops of a special lotion into the canal. Then remove the dirt with a cotton swab.
To prevent eye diseases, cut your bangs regularly. Remove accumulated tears with a cotton swab and special foam.
