Hello everyone, Here to get your advise on :

1) My CKC registered breeder giver 2 year warranty against any kind of major disease. Do I need to get a pet insurance from the start or wait for the 2 years ? What company have the best price . It will
Be great if you could tell me the price range of insurance.

2) I have read that tear stains are very common and evident on Maltese . What precautions should I take to prevent this . Is there a shampoo or some natural home made remedy for this.

3) What type of chewing toys are best for Maltese ? Is Nylabone okay ?

4) My breeder recommends Wahl or Hertz Shampoo . Are there any better options that u have tried ?

5) My Breeder has been feeding Iams smart puppy food for 36 years . She said she has also tried more expensive food options but IAMs works perfect. But I have heard some negative comments about Iams. Although there are always some negative comments about other brands as well . What do you guys think what is the best food option if I have to try some other brand?

6) Are the Maltese easygoing when cutting their and how often should we cut the nails .
7) What is the best brush for regular grooming ?

Sorry , the list is long and but I thank you so much for reading and providing your valuable feedback.

I'm running late this morning so here's a short answer to a couple of your questions.

1. Get pet insurance the day your puppy comes home. That way you don't have exclusions for pre-existing conditions.
2. Tear stains are common until all baby teeth are gone. Don't worry about it for the first year. Wipe under the eyes with common saline solution a couple of times a day.
3. No nylabone or greenies. They can break off into tiny pieces and cause blockages. Himalayan chews are good options.
4. Others on here will have shampoo recommendations, but I use PurePaws moisturizing. It's much easier on the types of coats our babies have than the brands you're recommending.

5. Iams is awful IMO. They use a lot of corn and grains which can trigger digestive upsets in our small dogs. If you absolutely must try kibble, look at Fromm or Zignature. There's a publication called Whole Dog Journal. It requires a subscription (about $20 a year) but they publish lists of recommended dry, canned, raw and dehydrated dog foods. Look at their lists and also look at dogfoodadvisor.com.

6. For nail cutting, I have my groomer do that when I take them in once a month. (FYI, I shampoo them at home about two weeks after the grooming so they get a bath every two weeks.) If you're going to cut nails at home, start early and only do one paw at a time so it's not overly stressful. Be sure to trim the hair between the pads on their feet too so they don't slip on hard surface floors.

7. I love my Madan brush but others will have their recommendations as well.

Thank you Maggie for your valuable input.

i am not sure why my breeder is recommending IAMS . However i checked on dogfoodadvisor.com and it is in top rated section . Giving 4.5 stars to Iams smart puppy Proactive health. I will take a look at the brands that you have recommended

Welcome to SM, I'm excited for you, what a blessing is coming your way.
I can't wait to see pictures of your little one

Years ago I made dog shoes, I found fleece booties worked well, they seemed to adjust to them better, not as stiff.
Your going to get a belly laugh when you watch them try and walk in shoes at first, have your camera handy, video it

Finally Jasper has arrived in our lives . He is so playful , funny and overloaded with cuteness. He is only 8.5 weeks and has a bundles of energy.He wakes us up at 4 am to play. Starts biting my neck very gently and if i wake up , then he is at his full play mode . But when i just ignore , he calmly goes and plays with his toys.
Its only been 2 days and it feels like he has been living with us forever .

He has been excellent in his potty and pee pad training with few minor accidents. I guess breeder was excellent and started training him quite early.

I have attached few pictures of this cute little bugger.
