he is 8 weeks old and while i was giving him a bath today his hair turned yellow when it got wet is this normal? i just got him today.
Bichon’s hair stains and and can turn yellowish it happened to mine(just her tail) and at first I only noticed it while bathing her. I suggest feeding him good quality food or a home cooked diet, filtered water (I bought a drinkwell) and comb him and brush him every day, do that and you will have a cute white pup. I also comb my girl while bathing her, it helps and her tail is white again.
Yes, that is completely normal. That same thing happened with my mom’s white shih tzu. It goes back to normal when dry. Also, I don’t recommend bathing your dog too often, maybe once or twice a month. Dogs do have natural oils in their skin and coat that help them to stay helthy and if you wash that away it can effect them negatively.
Also, for bichons, I like to recommend Nutro Ultra Small Breed Puppy formula. That food is great for white dogs and helped to prevent the tear stains under my mom’s shih tzu’s eyes. Dogs also absolutely love that food.
I hope that helps!

Yes, that’s normal. If something is wet, no matter the color, it darkens.
The Bichon Frise is so cute and beautiful that many people compare the Bichon to a “marshmallow” because of its shiny white coat. If the Bichon Frise’s coat is yellow, the image will be greatly diminished. What about the Bichon Frise’s yellow coat? Here’s a look at it with Pokey.
Bichon Frise (Details)
The Bichon Frise is very cute and beautiful, and many people compare the Bichon to a “marshmallow” because of its shiny, white coat. If the Bichon Frise’s coat is yellow, the image will be greatly diminished. What about the Bichon Frise’s yellow coat? Here’s a look at it with Pokey.
There is no way to change a yellow coat. The Bichon Frise’s coat is white, and there may be some light yellow or other color around the ears, but not too much. Some Bichon Frise coats are not white because of impure bloodlines or genetic problems, which just can’t be changed.
If your dog is still a puppy, then don’t worry too much. Generally, when a Bichon Frise is about three months old, the hair is soft and the color is not very good, and the coat will change after a while. But it is best not to shave Oh, shaving your Bichon Frise will hurt the pores of your Bichon Frise, so don’t do it on your own to shave your Bichon Frise. If you don’t have breast milk, you can use special goat milk powder to replace it.
Some Bichons may have an impure coat due to a lack of certain nutrients in their body. The Bichon Frise should be fed with nutritional balance, more vegetables, less meat, and more high protein foods, such as egg yolks, to help its coat shine. You can give your Bichon Frise some hairdressing food, such as MAG Blueberry Extract, which is an antioxidant, available at the Pokey Mall.
In addition to food in place, that is clean. Many Bichons eat wet food and drink water without attention, and over time the hair around the mouth is yellow, which is an eyesore. To solve this problem is not difficult, it depends on the owner’s diligence. To put it simply, every time after the dog has eaten, parents should not only clean the food bowl, drinking utensils, it is best to wash the hair at the corners of the dog’s mouth with water, and then dry with a towel. There are also bathing time can buy some dog special tea tree oil body wash, wash the clean natural will be soft and shiny.
