I am considering adopting a maltese who was been positive for an enzyme indicating a liver shunt. He is one year old and has not exhibited any symptoms and the vet has found nothing. He also had some ingrown lashes plucked about 6 months ago and he has been fine since. Has anyone faced these issues? I want to be sure I have as much information as possible to make an informed decision prior to bringing him into our family.
I have owned a Maltese in the past and he has had similar issues. But he had other issues that you should probably know for Maltese's. Mine was not neutered and he would have inflamation around the butt area (not very comfortable for him). He'd have to be brought in multiple times to reduce the swelling/pain. I'm just letting you know for future reference with a Maltese.
