Diet Makes a Difference
by Jonne Hubin
What does every Bichon Frise lover want most for their
precious pup? It's pretty simple. We want them to enjoy
a healthy, happy, long life with us. And what's the best
way to make this happen? That's easy. Provide an
environment like the one dogs have had naturally over
the past 10,000+ years, which consists of: exercise in
fresh air and sunshine and a carnivorous diet - that is,
a diet mainly of raw meat and bones.
Dogs traditionally have hunted and eaten small prey
which provided them with muscle meat, organs, bones and
the vegetable contents of the prey's stomach - all of
which were raw. Since we can't provide prey, the next
best thing is to purchase organic meat that is
antibiotic and hormone-free and comes from animals that
are grass fed - organic ground beef or bison and bones.
It's a good idea to buy local if you can.
Farmers markets and health food stores are the places to
check first. To locate a farmer in your vicinity who
produces grass-fed beef, check out www.eatwild.com on
If you are in the city, you might try calling
supermarkets- some are beginning to carry organic meats.
If you'd like to try bison, www.northstarbison.com will
ship to your door. In Virginia, the Virginia Independent
Farmers and Consumers Association has a list of sources.
Other states may have similar organizations. Both
farmers and some supermarkets will also be able to
supply you with meaty bones, a source for much needed
calcium and cartilage.
