title=”What should I look for in a bichon frise?”
There are many foods that you should not allow your Bichon Frise to eat that are very dangerous for your Bichon Frise. Below we have listed the names of vegetables, fruits and meats that Bichons should not eat, and we hope that all Bichon dog owners will pay attention to them in their daily feeding.
I. Names of fruits that Bichons cannot eat
Pears. The pulp, rind and flowers are toxic and can cause breathing difficulties and fluid buildup in the lower abdomen of the chest or heart of the Bichon Frise.
Cherries. Causes shortness of breath, shock, stomatitis, and rapid heartbeat in Bichons.
Grapes. Raisins can cause kidney failure, severe vomiting, and dysentery in Bichon Frise dogs.
Bananas. Bananas are considered a relatively mildly toxic fruit and do not have a significant effect on the better-absorbing and digesting Bichon Frise, and usually do not require special treatment. However, if vomiting and shortness of breath occur, this is an indication of overfeeding.
Overall, fruit is not as important to dogs as it is to people. Many fruits are not beneficial, have only taste, do not have the protein that dogs need after all, they are dogs not people and need different nutrition, and even many fruit seeds and peels are harmful to the little Bichon. So everyone must be careful in the daily feeding of Bichon.
II. Other foods that Bichon should not eat
Mushrooms. The mushroom causes acute gastrointestinal reactions, liver and kidney damage, lower abdominal pain, regurgitation and nausea, and vomiting of saliva in Bichons.
Seafood. Shrimp, crab, cuttlefish, octopus, and jellyfish can easily cause indigestion when eaten by Bichons and should not be fed.
Rice cakes and nori. These foods can block the throat or stick to the larynx, which can easily cause choking in Bichons
Liver. Bichons should not eat liver for long periods of time because it is rich in vitamin A. Occasional consumption of liver is good for young bears, but prolonged use of liver as a daily staple can result in vitamin A overdose or even poisoning, especially in Bichon puppies.
Chocolate. Mainly because different Bichons are sensitive to the caffeine in chocolate, and although there is a great deal of individual variation, it is true that some little Bichons can become excited and restless after eating a small amount of chocolate. And chocolate contains a lot of sugar, which is not good for the health of your little Bichon.
Meat. In addition to bacon, it is generally better to let bears eat raw, but fish is a different story. The fish with a lot of fat is not digestible and should not be given to little bears.
Since the Bichon’s mouth gets dirty easily, try not to use a tub when feeding water, but a special container for water that hangs from the crate. Everything must be fresh, and leftovers from the last meal should be dumped and dishes washed promptly to keep them tidy. However, I would suggest that it is best to feed the dog food. Feed your Bichon Frise on time, with a fixed address. Being on time will develop the dog’s on-time conditioned reflex, secrete gastric juices, increase appetite, and promote digestion and absorption.
Generally, adult dogs are fed twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, and slightly more at night. dogs under 1 year old are fed 3 times a day; dogs under 3 months old are fed 4 times a day; and puppies under 2 months old are fed 5 times a day. The dog’s food pattern can be renovated, but the number should be relatively stable. Feeding address inside and outside the kennel can be, but generally feed the dog in the kennel. The purpose of a fixed address is to maintain a relatively stable environment and facilitate governance. Some dogs will refuse to eat and lose their appetite when they change feeding places.
