Common Health Issues of Mixed Maltese Puppies
Having more than one breed mixed in your puppy can give you the best of each breed, or a mixture of the good with the bad. If you are considering adopting one of the Maltese mixes for sale, there are some Maltese health issues you should watch for in case your puppy gets ill.
Tear stains are appear on the fur around some Maltese mix dogs’ eyes and mouth. They can also result from having a lot of tearing or drooling, or an infection. Take your Maltese mix puppy to the veterinarian and have her checked out if she has tear stains.
You can disinfect your dog’s brushes with Lysol and carefully comb the fur around her eyes and mouth to help prevent tear stains. Also clean and disinfect her bowls to help keep her at her best!
Maltese commonly have problems with reverse sneezing, and it can first happen to your Maltese mixed puppy when she is still young. You might notice her stick her head out and have a wheezing fit. Don’t worry, it should be over in a few minutes and she should be fine. Take her to the veterinarian for a checkup if it seems severe.
Puppy strangles usually appears when a Maltese mix puppy is about 5 weeks old. Keep an eye out for swollen eyes, head and neck, and possibly oozing sores on your puppy’s skin.
Take your puppy to the veterinarian for medication if you think he might have puppy strangles. Your veterinarian might also suggest an antiseptic bath and a high protein diet to help your puppy overcome the illness.
