We have a Shichon/Zuchon - Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise mix and he is nearly all white minus his cute little ears that are a light shade of beige. He's even on Instagram (who am I?! I have never had a dog in my life and here we are! haha). Want to follow him? instagram.com/bluetheshichon
We, like many white dog owners, battled with tearstains for a while with him. This is just what we have tried and something in this combo has worked for him. This reel shows a little progress with his tearstains: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CXtpsChAUdY/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
We use Taste of the Wild dog food - ancient stream with ancient grains. We are thinking chicken may have been part of the problem - but again, this is just what has worked for us. Link: https://amzn.to/3cKykONamzn.to/3cKykON
We have also followed recommendations of other Shichon/Zuchon owners in doing filtered water in a stainless bowl. Does it work? Who knows...but it's not NOT working. :)
Since he has had some stomach issues also, we use FortiFlora powder a few times a week. https://amzn.to/3owHtgs It is a probiotic, so it's a good thing for his sensitive tummy.
In the morning, in addition to some of his food mentioned above - I make a topper that I freeze. Goodness, typing this all out makes him seem REEALLLYYY spoiled. It's just what works, and we do love the little fluff! See the recipe/instructions below!
Lastly, I try to keep up with cleaning under his eyes also - but I am admittedly not as good as some of you dog mamas, it does not happen daily. I use a contact solution (avoiding his eyes even though it may not be too bad) and a small comb to clean it.
