  • Thrilled about this!

    By on

    My dog came from a puppy mill. Hasn't been able to lose much weight from living in a cage. Tried other brands...stuck her nose up. When I opened the bag of BB Basics she started wiggling and wagging. Put some down for her to taste...loves it. She has already lost a pound...we are both happy. And Chewys prices and customer service are top notch.

  • Loved them at first bite

    By on

    He loved them when I fed them by hand. Now that I mix them with his salmon-based usual food, he just eats them as he would any kibble. But I bought them to help reduce his calorie intake so I can't complain. Can't give it 5 stars until I know how well it helps achieve this. Turkey is his second-favorite flavor after salmon.

  • Dogs seem to love it.

    By on

    I was looking for a food that was lower in fat and protein for my dog with pancreatitis. This seems to fit the bill for now and she likes it and her illness is now gone. Hopefully no relapses. Also going to try it on my Lab that is getting a bit plump.

  • New diet food for chubby boy

    By on

    My dog had been eating the standard Basics Turkey and Potato formula and put on a few too many LBs.. anyway it was very easy and quick to switch him over to this diet formula and he hasn’t even seemed to notice. He had stomach issues when I adopted him about a year ago and it took 3 different foods before we landed on Blue Buffalo. Not sure we’ll ever buy a different brand! Hoping the diet food will help my chubby boy get back to an acceptable weight.

    We debated over trying this for months. It works perfectly. Rapid delivery! I change our auto ship items as needs arise and there have been no issues.

  • My dogs devour this variety!

    I love the limited ingredients and thought my dogs might be a little apprehensive and not eat it but much to my surprise, they devour it every time!

  • Quality food at a reasonable price.

    By on

    Very happy with dog food. My little guy needs a limited ingredient food. Local stores don’t always have every variety Blu Buffalo offers. With Chewy.com I get what I need and at a better price.

  • He loves it

    By on

    I figured my dog Simba would like this food because it is made by Blue Buffalo. He has always eaten Blue Buffalo but recently he started to gain some weight due to being inactive over the summer so I got him this food in hopes that it would work for him and not leave him feeling hungry. Okay as much as I can tell if he's hungry versus just always being interested eating. It's a lovely mix and he loves it!. I am a believer in Blue Buffalo - short of making my dog's food, I won't feed him anything else!

    We began giving the Blue Buffalo brand to our dog due to stomach issues. We are very happy with it and will not switch back to other brands.
