Mauxie Breed Maintenance
These doggy divas will have medium to long fur that can be prone to matting. Mauxies may not have the full, dense, long coats of the Maltese but they still do require daily grooming. This is because Mauxies can easily trap a debris in their fur and if left uncombed, mats may develop which will cause your Mauxie discomfort. It is highly recommended that Mauxies be brushed out daily and professionally groomed every 6 to 12 weeks, particularly during the summer months. In terms of bathing, Mauxies only need to be washed when owners notice their pup has been getting dirty. Special attention needs to be given around the hind end as feces can easily get trapped or tangled in the fur over time. Teeth and ears should also be cleaned in order to prevent diseases or infections. Nails should be trimmed every 6 to 12 weeks.
Mauxies often suffer from cataracts and mitral valve disease. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs. Our pet insurance tool lets you compare plans from leading companies like Figo and Spot. Find the “pawfect” plan for your pet in just a few clicks!
