Hi there, I just came over from Bichonpaws and thoughts I'd say hi. Thank you for this info on the dog food recall. I do have a question for you-we just got a 5 mos old male Bichon and trying to figure out the best dog food for him. He has been on Purina and I'm adding in Blue buffalo to trying & switch him to a healthy food. He doesn't like it though and the last couple of days has been scratching continually and I'm thinking it's allergies. Has your Silvie has allergies, if so what do you do? What type of food do you use. Thanks for any info. Noreen & Hunter
