How Often Should I feed a Bichon Frise puppy?

And is there some special things that should be in the food?
I'm planning on getting one and this could really help me! :*

Small breeds should be eating at least 3 times a day. They don't need anything except any decent dog food. Most likely, it would do best if you continued what it was weaned on at least for a while. Nobody has any proof the more expensive foods are any better than the common brands.

I wouldn't listen to our vitamin saleslady.

There are plenty of studies that show a diet with quality meat ingredients and quality ingredients over all do have an effect on the health of our pets. Just as diet influences our health it does our pets as well. Grocery store brands are full of cheap ingredients, poor quality ingredients, and have had numerous quality control problems including recalls.

Our pets can't choose for themselves and deserve better.

Food choices would be
Solid Gold
Blue Buffalo
The Honest Kitchen
Nature's Variety
Natural Balance

To names a few

Your bichon Frise puppy will come home from the breeder with a certain food. Use that for a little while and then switch over to a quality holistic food such as:
Innova PUPPY
Wellness Puppy
Solid gold ...
There are many quality holistic pup foods at the local pet store...JUST don't get anything with corn as one of the first 5 ingredients.
Also, make sure you baby gets onto NuVET Plus Puppy vitamins...
see here:
This is the best supplement / Natural canine vitamin in the USA.
Call 1-800-474-7044 and tell them you want the powder for pups....of the NuVET Plus
~~~ give them order code 81098 and ask for the 15% off program....~~~~
BEST wishes on the new pup
