Bichon Frise: Why Does Your Bichon Eat Grass?
by Jonne Hubin
Does your Bichon Frise eat grass when he/she's not
feeling well? Ever wonder why? The experts don't know
for sure. They think it might be that they like the
taste or they eat it in order to vomit. Probably both
are right, but there are other more important reasons
Most people aren't aware that throughout history
indigenous peoples and all mammals have turned to
grasses and green plants to recover from illnesses.
Green plants are green because they contain high amounts
of chlorophyll. And what does chlorophyll do for the
you can see from this listing, it pretty well covers
what your Bicon Frise needs to stay healthy. And if there
are pathogens or toxins in the stomach making your
dog sick and not wanting to eat, it becomes obvious
why he/she will attempt to find some grass.
- inactivates pathogenic bacteria and fungi
- neutralizes toxins, purifying the body
- enriches the blood (chlorophyll and hemoglobin
are nearly identical)
- contains a rich mixture of vitamins, minerals,
proteins, fatty and nucleic acids, and nutrients to
strengthen the immune system and prevent premature
- provides large amounts of digestive enzymes
your Bichon Frise, whether it's a tummy-ache or preventively
building health, keep several sources of "wonder"
green powders on hand. Chlorophyll, spirulina,
wheatgrass, barley grass, and chlorella are all
available on the Internet or in health food stores.
They can be sprinkled on or in your Bichon's food
or, if he/she is not eating, you can add a bit of
water and administer the remedy with a medicine
syringe available at pet stores. Considering all of
the health benefits of greens, you may want to join
your Bichon Frise and try some yourself!
