When we raise a Maltese dog, its diet is very important. If the diet is unreasonable or allergic food is given to the dog, it may cause gastrointestinal problems. Therefore, when feeding the dog at ordinary times, we can let the dog eat fewer meals, give it some light food, and reasonably match the nutrition, so that the dog can grow more healthily.
Some people have done statistics that dogs fed indoors live longer than those fed outdoors because the current environmental pollution is still relatively serious, dogs breathing polluted air may also cause physical diseases. Therefore, in the process of feeding Maltese dogs, we must pay attention to the health of the breeding environment. The sanitation of the general environment may not be changed, but the personal environment can still be maintained and its life span can be extended as far as possible.
