Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise

A Bichon Frise is known for needing frequent dental checkups and dog teeth cleaning, due to their being susceptible to teeth and gum problems. Regular dog dental care is required to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

To keep your Bichon Frise’s teeth free from plaque and tartar, you need to provide dog treats in addition to regular tooth brushing.

Edible chew dog treats are very popular among dog owners. Zukes Dental Chew Bones and Greenies Dog Treats are two of the most well-liked edible dog treats for Bichon Frise.

Zukes are made without artificial colors, flavors or byproducts. The mini to small sizes are perfect for your Bichon Frise.

Greenies are filled with easily- digestible proteins and contain antioxidants that promote your dog’s immune system. The teenie and petite sizes are just right for your Bichon Frise.

Dog dental care is an essential part of grooming your Bichon Frise and promoting his health. By regular dog tooth brushing and providing dental dog treats, you are actually helping your Bichon Frise become healthier and happier.

Bichon Frise, also known as Bichon needs a special health care.

Dog hygiene is important since Bichon Frise can suffer early tooth loss and are prone to gum infections without regular dental care. Daily or frequent brushing and avoidance of canned foods is recommended with a regularly scheduled professional cleaning with your Bichon Frise’s vet.

Provide your Bichon Frise with a good nutritional diet. If you notice any problems with your Bichon Frise’s knees, be sure to discourage excessive climbing stairs or jumping off furniture to prevent further stress. Be sure to have your Bichon Frise checked if you see limping or favoring of one leg over another.

Bichon Frise should be combed or brushed daily or at least 2-3 times a week and all tangles should be removed before shampooing.

Regarding Bichon Frise‘s Shampoo, since Bichon is white and you want Bichon to be white, you should probably use a shampoo that has some “whitening” ingredients (which usually means the shampoo has a blue color.) But as you also probably know, some Bichons do have skin problems and you may have to use special or even medicated shampoos.

Since the Bichon Frise has that lovely curly hair it’s important to wipe your Bichon Frise’s hind (anal) area with a damp cloth after each poop to keep it clean and prevent matting.

Bichon Frise is very sensitive to fleas so be sure to keep up with preventive treatments. To discourage mites regularly trim excess hair from in between their pads on their feet and in between their ears.

Since the Bichon Frise is prone to bladder stones and infections be sure to give your pet plenty of clean, fresh water. Filtered water is desirable.

Establish a relationship between your veterinarian and your Bichon Frise. You want to find out what vaccinations and heart worm preventive medications your Bichon needs. It’s important to keep the face of your Bichon Frise clean and neatly trimmed. Eye discharge and mucus can easily accumulate in the hair in front of their eyes and lead to serious problems. Wipe away the tears in the eye area daily and consider using topical wipes or a saline solution.

Bichon Frise can live comfortably in your apartment if Bichon Frise gets enough exercise. Bichon Frise is very energetic and active so playtime can take care of most exercise needs. But Bichon Firse loves walking and running out in the open too.

With proper care your Bishon Frise can enjoy a life expectancy of 15 years or more.

Bichon frise dogs need to have their teeth cleaned daily, or every few days, to ensure that there teeth and gums remain strong and healthy. While there are different foods, treats and chew toys you can provide your pet to help prevent plaque buildup, the best care comes from a toothbrush.

Brushing your bichon frise dogs teeth is a fairly easy process that your pooch will tolerate if you familiarize him with it when he is a puppy. Therefore, when you purchase your dog grooming supplies, make sure a dog toothbrush and flavored toothpaste are among the items you obtain. Keep in mind, it is essential that you use dental paste made for dogs because human toothpastes can upset your bichon‘s stomach. Furthermore, an animal dental brush or finger brush has very soft bristles so it is gentle on their gums

If you have never brushed your bichon frise’s teeth before, here are the steps to follow to get the job done: The steps will be coming soon….

Since the Bichon Frise is graced with good health and a wonderful temperament they make an excellent choice for a pet. With plenty of love, a safe environment and proper care you can go a long way to ensure your Bichon a full, healthy and happy life.

Greenies are the only dental dog chews designed in 5 sizes and textures to match the natural chewing action of all dogs.
greenies dog treats and dog chews

Traditionally, dog chews are designed strictly based on the size and weight of a dog. Nowdays it is said to believe that texture and shape of a dental chew are just as important as size when it comes to how dogs chew.

New reformulated Greenies is based on scientific data on biometrics, which analyzed the dogs unique physiology such as tooth position, skull shape, weight and bite force. The biometric research shows that texture and shape of a dental chew are as important as size when it comes to the way dogs chew.”

Therefore, to better care for all types of dogs, Greenies come in five textures (softer ones for little dogs, harder ones for bigger ones) and 5 sizes as follows:

Size of Dental Chew : Pet Weight

* Jumbo: Over 100 lbs

* Large: 50-100 lbs

* Regular: 25-50 lbs

* Petite: 15-25 lbs

* Teenie: 5-15 lbs

dog disobey

 Most of the time, dogs disobey their owners because they’re not sure what is expected of them. In order to get your dog to be consistently obedient, you have to spend lot of time training him. Obedience training should start when the dog is still a puppy and be reinforced throughout the years. Some owners can train their dogs without any outside assistance; however, most will need to enroll themselves and their dog in a local obedience school. You and your dog will enjoy your time together much more once you can communicate effectively with each other.

Remember, when the dog obeys a command or an order, make sure to give him healthy, rewarding treats like greenies, to show him how much you care. You can buy greenies at www.gibdogpetsupplies.com


Dog Jumping

dog jumping

You might think its adorable when your big dog greets you at the door by jumping up on you and licking your face, but most of your guests probably won’t get the same kick out of this behavior. When a small puppy jumps on you it’s cute because you can control him and he’s not heavy enough to knock you over. Not so with adult dogs. Having a large dog hurl himself at you is not an experience that most people, even dog lovers, enjoy. So, how do you get your dog to stop jumping as a way of greeting you and your guests? Consistent training is really the only way. Ideally, you should begin discouraging this behavior when the dog is still a puppy. If you are unable to get your dog to stop jumping up onto people, then a stint at obedience school is highly recommended.  Be sure to tell him that he will be rewarded for his training, with many treats like greenies for his hard journey ahead.

dog sun

 Think about the precautions that you take to prevent yourself from sunburn and UV exposure. You stay out of the sun at the peak hours like noon to 3PM, use sunblock and cover up, don’t you? Those same suggestions can work for your dog.

Here’s more dog health advice: Be sure that your dog is inside the house or in a shaded area during the sun’s peak hours, even on overcast days. Apply sunblock to the bridge of the dog’s nose, ear tips and other small, sensitive areas whenever the dog is outside for more than a few minutes. Consider some sort of covering for your dog.

Some veterinarians say that the most important and effective protection is a type of bodysuit for dogs, which is designed to block ultraviolet rays and prevent sunburn. Our dogs give us hours of pleasure and years of unconditional love. In return, all we must do is love, keep them healthy, and give them treats like greenies. It’s still good dog health advice to let your dog play outdoors. But spare your “best friend” the pain of sunburn and its consequences.


How To Get Rid Of Fleas

dog fleas

 All dog owners are familiar with the problems caused by pesky fleas. Fleas are very small wingless insects, brownish red in color, and have sharp mouths by which they obtain blood from their canine hosts. Flea bites usually cause your dog to scratch at affected areas and some dogs are more sensitive than others and can have allergic reactions to flea bites. In general, fleas do not transmit diseases from dogs to humans, but the potential for this exists and they can and do bite humans as well as dogs and cats. Fleas and flea larvae live in warm climates and will live until the ground freezes in cooler climates. They can live on in your home well past this time also.

If you suspect that your dog has fleas, you should take him to your veterinarian. Your veterinary staff member will first use a flea comb on your dog. Flea combs are wide tooth combs and “flea dirt” or dried blood flea excrement is what they are looking for. If this is found, your veterinarian will recommend treatment. Most veterinarians recommend preventive treatment for fleas as it is much easier to prevent them than to treat them.

 After taking your pet to the vet, always make sure to give him a nice treat, like greenies, to rid him of his woes!

dog coat

 For many dog owners, how to keep their dog warm during the cold winter is a big concern. Luckily for them, there are many ways to do this.

If your dog is small, has short hair, or is older, you may want to consider purchasing a jacket to help keep him warm. In some climates, it is appropriate to choose a sweater for the fall months and a heavier jacket for the colder winter months. When choosing outerwear for your dog choose something simple that is easy for you to put on. You may need to acclimate your dog to wearing a coat as some dogs do not like to be dressed up. To do this, simply put the coat on for short periods each day making sure to give lots of good treats. Your dog will learn to associate wearing his coat with yummy treats like greenies making it much easier for you to dress him.
