Silky Terrier Q&A

I recently received a Maltese as a gift, he is two and a half years old. I took him to get his shots at a pet store and the vet administering the shots that day said he looked too under weight and refused to vaccinate him. He was estimated to weight about 6 LBS, Is this considered normal for a two and a half year old or should I be worried?

I have a teacup Maltese that weighed in at 1.8ounces and got her vaccinated. At 2 pounds she is going in for the remainder of her shots. Maltese typically weigh between 6-8 pounds teacups weigh 3-5 pounds so your dog sounds about the right weight.
