Hi and welcome everyone!

This is Sharda with another Bichon Frise newsletter.

Here are important Bichon Frise diet information you must know!

Your Bichon Frise is your responsibility. This means that you are responsible for every aspect of your dog’s life and this includes what you feed them.

What your dog does or does not eat can make a huge difference with their health.

So today, let’s take a look at your Bichon Frise’s diet and nutrition.


Proper nutrition for your Bichon Frise is as important as your own nutritional needs.

A well balanced diet is the key to helping your pet live a healthy, long life.

Bichon Frise puppy’s energy requirements are far higher than that of a mature or adult dog, so they need specially formulated food to meet their dietary and nutritional requirements.

You should provide your puppy with a good quality, highly digestible, one hundred percent balanced and complete premium formula that is nutrient dense for growth.

Some of the many results from feeding your Bichon Frise puppy a premium puppy formula includes; healthy bones, teeth, and skin; excellent muscle tone, luxurious shiny fur, playfulness and an energetic happy attitude, and shiny clear eyes.

Different breeds require different formulas based on the breed size and since the growth rates of the puppies differ.

Small breed puppies such as the Bichon Frise have, in a short length of time, growth spurts and development that continues until adulthood. Because they have a small mouth and stomach, Bichon Frise puppies requires a formula that supplies them with a lot of energy and nutrition packed into a small amount of high-quality puppy food.

Never try to save money by feeding your Bichon Frise puppy a poor quality diet.

This could result in poor skeletal and muscle development and growth. An adult Bichon Frise, just like puppies, requires a one hundred percent balanced and complete diet, specially formulated for their activity level and small size.

Optimal nutrition is one of the most important ways to enhance your dog’s life. Because small dogs have tiny stomachs and mouths, some owners prefer feeding their pet easy to chew, smaller kibble.

Feeding your dog a nutrient-dense, premium formula helps him get all the necessary nutrients required.

Most Bichon Frise receive their daily exercise through walks and play, so they require a nutrient dense diet especially formulated for small dogs with a moderate to normal activity level.

Some of the necessary ingredients for good nutrition to meet your dog needs include such things as protein from chicken or other meat sources to aid your pet in maintaining its important muscle structure.

Immune system boosters such as vitamin E and beta-carotene, omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for coat and skin health support, carbohydrate blends for nutritionally sustained energy and proper blood sugar levels, and fiber sources that are moderately fermentable to help properly maintain your Bichon Frise’s intestinal tract are all very important in your dogs diet.

The dietary needs for senior Bichon Frise or ones that are pregnant, nursing, overweight, or with specific health problems are different from those of a healthy, normally active dog.

Be sure to discuss your pet’s special needs and diet with your veterinarian.

This will help you feel confident that your Bichon Frise always receives the premium dog food necessary to provide your pet with a well-balanced, 100 percent complete diet.

I hope that you learned a lot of thing in this Bichon Frise newsletter.

All the best and take care
