About BLUE Buffalo

Blue Buffalo began with unconditional love and some furry inspiration from a large breed Airedale, Blue. When Blue's family started a pet food company, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent to be able to feed their pet with the same care they would feed family. So they created the #1 natural pet specialty food to help furry family members live happy, healthy lives. Of course, they named it after Blue.

  • Like crack... for dogs

    By on

    I have 2 dogs. One eats everything and anything, and the other was practically anorexic... until she tried Blue Buffalo. Now, she loves her food. She actually eats it every time we put it down. I was using a premium dog food and she wasn't a fan. I had the idea to try Blue Buffalo after cat sitting for a neighbor. I could not believe how excited these cats were to eat. They were literally swarming me. The Blue Buffalo goodness is real. Cats love it. Dogs love it... and I love the auto delivery. It's also not nearly as pricey as I expected! Great value, great product.

  • Great value at a great price

    By on

    I have always bought this food at my local pet store. But I got a flyer from Chewy.com and decided to try them. I compared prices from the local pet store and chewy.com and chewy.com was much cheaper. I can have it delivered to my front door and it just has to be moved once into the house. 30 pounds of dog food is not easy to move several times. It is the same great quality and the pieces of dog food are even bigger and at a much cheaper price. I will use chewy.com again.

  • Don't waste your money

    By on

    Bought this for my dog for weight mgmt. He usually eat anything. Not this kind. He ate it the first time I pour it out but nothing since. He rather starve. If you want to try for your dog I would recommend buying like a 3 lb bag first. I bought the big bag based on the 97% reviews thinking that hey they can't be wrong! I was wrong. $45 down the drain. Heres to hoping the dogs at the shelter will like it more than mine did.

  • Blue Buffalo food

    By on

    I had to change my dog's dry food because of a stomach issue. We were trying to figure out what was the matter with him. Ultrasound and xrays did not show any problems. So I change to Blue Buffalo and so far he is fine. Also he has to take pepcid every day. I have been feeding my cats blue buffalo and they are all healthy.

    I have always fed high quality dog foods such as Eukanuba and Taste of the Wild and have had great results. Not sure the dogs are doing any better on Blue Buffalo than those other two, but they empty their bowls instantly with the Blue

  • Easy Transition & She Loves It!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I needed to switch my 7-year-old German Shepherd to the Blue Buffalo Healthy Weight food since she was gaining weight from the Blue Buffalo Lamb & Rice. She transitioned over smoothly to the Healthy Weight food without any problems. She loves this version of Blue Buffalo, too!
