First you have to find out if your maltese isn't sick. I had a problem with my female maltese. She refused to eat unless I fed her a mixture of boiled chicken with white rice and a little cottage cheese. She just loved it!! The only problem was that she would mess herself and go soft. So I went back to the organic dry food and of course she stopped eating. I realized that she was smarter than I gave her credit for. She was testing me and was on a food strike until she got what she wanted. So when I would feed her the dry food I would ignore her and go about my business. She only drank water refusing to eat anything else ,this went on for about three days after that she gave up and now she eats all her food without complaints.
