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.

  • Blue Basics & Grain Free

    By on

    Thanks for having this good food available online. The stores in town don’t have very many selections for Basics AND Grain Free. My German Shepherd was diagnosed with EPI two years ago and she has to have pancreas enzymes on her food every meal. Finding a food that meets her nutritional needs has been tricky. She’s always been a Blue Buffalo fan since she was a pup, but the Basics and Grain Free is the route she will be on for the rest of her days! I appreciate Blue Buffalo and Chewy for keeping my Keylee alive and well!

  • Completely amazed!

    By on

    I might be a little overexcited about the fact that dog food can now be delivered to my door step but not only was it delivered 3 days later but it was in fact CHEAPER than going to the big retail store down the street! You better believe that I signed up for auto-ship. My allergic to all the things fur-baby loves the food and my high maintenance not so puppy loves it too! Highly recommend it! Recommended by my mom :)

  • Good Food for Those with a Sensitive Stomach

    By on

    My dog was a puker. I have tried several different dog foods including a Blue Buffalo food that was not "limited ingredient". This one has worked perfectly. My doodle likes the taste and is rarely throwing up her food. It's been really great for a dog with a sensitive stomach. My dog likes this food much better than the one we were purchasing at the vet.

  • Husky loves it!

    By on

    We used to have all of our three dogs on a wellness brand. One day our Husky started having diarrhea. Eventually we found it was the food that was making him ill. We tried Blue Buffalo basics and his diarrhea issue is solved! He scarfs down the food and he’s all better now :)

  • Loves the Lamb & Potato flavor

    By on

    So far so good. I like that with Blue Buffalo I can change flavors every now and then to provide variety when my Boxer-Staffie-Shepherd gets tired of a flavor. The latest flavor is the Lamb which my girl would overeat if I let her have her way! Yum!

  • Another Great Choice from Blue

    By on

    My dog likes Blue Basics dry & wet foods and having another option besides the turkey is nice to have for food rotation. Great for dogs with sensitive stomachs as well as delicious enough for our dog to enjoy.
