The Malt-A-Poo is mix between a Maltese
and a Miniature Poodle
. Because offspring can inherit the characteristics of either or both of their parents, the Malt-A-Poo may favor a Maltese, a Miniature Poodle or may be a perfect mix of both. The Malt-A-Poo is generally a loving breed, owing to its gentle, good natured parents.
Despite their mixed breed background, Malt-A-Poos are still prone to a number of hereditary and congenital conditions
that can adversely affect their health – not to mention your budget
. Some of the conditions and illnesses Malt-A-Poos are prone to include knee issues such as medial patellar luxation
; skin problems such as atopy
; developmental problems such as cryptorchidism; eye conditions such as cataracts
; and liver problems such as portosystemic shunts.
Thankfully, Petplan pet insurance
covers all hereditary and congenital conditions for the life of your pet
as standard. Which means if your Malt-A-Poo inherits more than just a mixed identity, you’re covered
