20 Best Dog Foods for Bichon Frisewith Allergies
My Zack seemed to have terrible allergies. He scratched all the time. I started bathing him with baby shampoo and no more problems! I feed him Fresh Pet beef and Purina’s one lamb and rice. He’s doing great!
My Bichon is allergic to everything to! She does amazing on Fromm small breed!! We have to avoid wheat and soy products
I used Fresh Pet chicken and rice. Dog was allergic to wheat, soy, corn, beef and didn’t particularly stomach potatoes or salmon very well either. And Mother Hubbard chicken Apple treats.
Ground lamb, beef (no salt, rinse and drain off grease) chopped broccoli, carrots, celery, white rice, zucchini, sweet potatoes, squash. The veggies can be switched around. Sprinkle a little parsley or oregano and a good multivitamin. Meal prep. Fresh Pet beef can be a substitute. A little expensive but no more itching and picky eating.
My Molly is allergic to everything but rice, barley, oats, and I do mean everything!
I give her a mixture of oatmeal, rice and carrots and peas! So far she is B not allergic to veggies or fruit! I buy baked pumpkin or sweet potato treats from Wilco!Only thing I have found that has nothing she’s allergic to! I can’t buy B anything meat flavored, no eggs, yeast, dairy B products, absolutely nothing else but those. She is doing great! She also gets allergy shot every 5 or 6 weeks! Good luck!
I cook 2 cups of rice and 2 cups of oats with 2 cans of carrots and 3 cups of peas!
Our Bichon had terrible allergies for several years. We took him to several vets, we tried shots, allergy pills everything but steroids (too dangerous) sprays, creams, oils, various shampoos. FINALLY we tried a highly recommended vet who asked questions…yes, he’s allergic to every food we gave him including home cooked. Found out he’s allergic to protein. She put him on Blue’s hydrolyzed food, problem solved…no more scratching and bleeding sores, just a happy little guy. You may want to ask your vet about it..it’s prescription only. Good Luck!
My boy is allergic to fish and many meats and has a lot of intolerances to certain meats too, but the true allergies showed with chewing himself and scratching at himself and constant ear infections it was so sad, we did food elimination, just introduce one food at a time when we found a food that had no reaction we introduced another food, about 2 weeks apart, it took forever but our vet said its the best way as the food allergy tests they use are for humans and are only 50 percent accurate and 50 percent false, we found he is fine with chicken, brown rice and any vege,, but as he has severe fish allergies,, he vomits violently ,, we had to search to find a food without added fish oils, it was tricky but he has been on the food for years now with no issues at all, it’s a long road, but so worth it, the occasional treat of something else is ok we find, but not regularly,, good luck helping your fur baby x
Iams was the only thing my bichon wasn’t allergic to

Do grain free food for bichons with whatever you buy. We put ours on tractor supply’s 4health grain free (made by diamond foods) no more allergies and no more picky eater.
Mine was the same and the only thing that didn’t upset him was Eukanuba (That’s how you say it the spelling is probably wrong) he was on that all his life until he pinched the kids chocolate and got really poorly and died and the vets bill was in the thousands

My first Bichon was allergic to everything except sweet potatoes and salmon or whitefish, according to the vet’s report. He also had environmental allergies. I could give him a little apple slices and some melons. Had to bathe him every other day and the allergy shots didn’t help him at all. See what your vet has to say and do.
