Choosing the Best High-Protein Maltese Dog Food
In regard to weight, the Maltese is a very small dog generally weighing under 7 pounds. The Maltese is also considered a very small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 7-9 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Maltese, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Maltese is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to Italy. The charming, gentle and playful Maltese with a outgoing demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its very small size combined with its moderately active energy levels.
Why Breeds, Like the Maltese in the AKC Toy Group May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The perfect dog for the millions of people that live in the city, the American Kennel Club's 'Toy Group' make up breeds like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Manchester Terrier Toy and of course the Maltese. But does a dog of such small size truly need a high-protein dog food? Yes, we believe small dogs like those in the AKC's Toy group, including the Maltese, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the Maltese small frame of 7-9 inches and weight of only under 7 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the Maltese could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically gentle, charming, playful self!

Why A Moderately Active Maltese May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The Maltese is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Maltese could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a moderately active Maltese. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Maltese. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Maltese is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Maltese.
