Silky Terrier Q&A

My Maltese puppy has dark colored spots on his skin all along his back. They haven't seemed to bother him, and they are not raised. Are these spots something normal like freckles, or should I take him to the vet?

Maltese are very sensitive to the sun so if you had your maltese in the sun he/she may have been sun burned as a result the dark spots on the skin. That will not go away try pet sunscreen as to not harm the skin and sunburn. If it is not sunburn then yes a trip to the vet maybe needed.


It's totally normal. Both of mine had them.
