Bichon Frise: Diet Makes A Difference!

Part 2
by Jonne Hubin


Preparing the meal for your Bichon Frise is quick and easy. Finely grind a small portion of vegetables (a stalk of celery, a handful of spinach leaves for example) in the food processor. Add a ball of ground meat and mix. If you like, powdered wheatgrass, kelp, or chlorella can be sprinkled on top.

Some dogs make the transition to raw food easily, while others will need to change gradually. In the later case, introduce raw foods along with their old diet, increasing the amount of raw. Try to obtain vegetables that are as pure as possible. 

Again, farmers markets, health food stores and some supermarkets are a great resource for organic vegetables for both you and your dog. 

Your Bichon Frise is affected by differences in food quality

What's the difference between this food and the kind that is commercially prepared and sold in a bag or can?

First, commercial pet food contains grains which dogs have no nutritional need for. Grains weaken the immune system, are mucus forming, promote dental plaque, and are difficult for dogs to digest and thus contribute to digestive disorders.

Second, the meat found in commercial food has been cooked. Heating destroys valuable enzymes and degrades vitamins and minerals so necessary for good health. The cooking process transforms essential fatty acids into trans fats which are dangerous toxins. The meat is often of poor quality to boot.

Third, adding vitamins and minerals to the packaged mix is an inferior way of supplying nutrients. The raw food and bones provide marrow, easily digestible protein, fiber, enzymes, cartilage, vitamins and minerals in a form that the animal is designed to make use of.

And last, it is boring for your pet to eat the same food day after day.  They need and like variety, just like you do!

Dogs love this diet and you will too because, as the weeks and months go by, you'll notice a gradual improvement in their health and energy levels.
