Mother & Baby Maltese
After a dog has a litter of puppies the coat can lose condition and become brittle, thin, and even have bald spots. Hardly surprising given that she has just complete 9 weeks of pregnancy, given birth, and nourished an entire litter of cute - but demanding babies! Her body has transferred much of her vitamin and mineral supplies to her babies to give them the best start in life. This takes its toll on the hair.
