We feed all our adults and puppies fresh foods such as chicken, brown rice, green beans, spinach, eggs, cottage cheese, and yogurt, to name a few. We also free feed NutriSource Grain Free Chicken & Pea dry food, meaning it is left out at all times. And we also feed canned NutriSource Chicken & Rice recipe. We have done extensive studies on dog foods and if not going the raw/homemade route, the products below are hands down the best choice. NutriSource also has a small breed version of its dry formula, but we avoid this because it contains beet pulp, which can cause tearing and staining in Maltese. There are many great food choices out there, but not all meet the specific needs or avoidances of a Maltese. We highly recommend NutriSource Grain Free Chicken formula and all their canned varieties for your Maltese.

When switching your dog to NutriSource,

you may find that he/she eats less, and

potties less. NutriSource is so jam packed

with the ingredients that your dog needs,

that there is actually less waste! Store bought

foods are usually full of useless fillers that the

body can not use!

Be prepared to order this food online for your

 puppy, as it is very hard to find in stores.
It is available on Amazon with free shipping option and chewy.com

Not only is the food we feed our pets important, but so is the water! We only use Reverse Osmosis water in our household, and our pets drink it too! Reverse osmosis (R/O), or hyperfiltration, is the process of removing impurities from water by passing it through a porous membrane. The process produces clean, pure water that is safe for human consumption and pets.
Our RO system is capable of removing certain biological contaminants from water---such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Giardia is a harmful protozoan parasite that reproduces in the small intestine of its host. Symptoms of Giardia infection include malaise, diarrhea, excessive gas, bloating, loss of interest in food and weight loss. Cryptosporidium is a protozoan pathogen that causes cryptosporidiosis---a disease of the intestinal tract. Symptoms of cryptosporidiosis include diarrhea, malabsorption, anorexia and weight loss and vomiting. The membranes used in the reverse osmosis process to filter water prevent chlorine resistant pathogens from contaminating the water. Other contaminants removed by reverse osmosis include nitrates, mercury and chromium. A reverse osmosis unit with a carbon filter will remove soluble organic compounds (SOCs), such as dioxins and pesticides, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as petrochemicals and chloroform.
