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.

  • It really helped with allergies but she is not loving test..

    By on

    This food is great it really helped my dog's allergies. But honestly my dog is not loving the test. I think she eats because she is hungry. I feel bad....Couple nights ago I mixed with a real cooked fresh salmon, she loved it. And she eat all the bowl less then a minute. But I can not keep giving her fresh salmon. I wish she eats Buffalo salmon potato like this too.. but I will continue to give her because it really helped with her allergies.. I hope Blue Buffalo comes up with same indergents but testier food.

  • Loves the taste

    By on

    My cavachon was on blue basics turkey and sweet potatoe. I switched her to the grain free salmon because I had read it would help her itching. She has been eating for a few weeks and I have not noticed much of an improvement but I will keep her on this because I know she is eating healthy food food and she loves the taste. The kibble is a perfect size. Not to big for my small breed.

  • What great food for a great price.

    By on

    I was buying this food for $64 at my pet store. I switch once to another brand same kind of food because it was $25 cheaper and even though I'm not sure it was the cause of it, my dog broke out in an Allergy! She's so bad at the vet I tried to medicate her and that didn't work, doubling meds didn't work. I had no choice but to go back to this food and at this price, free shipping, and no vet visit... GLADLY!!!!

  • Awesome!!!

    By on

    This company is awesome. It's always on time. It remembers that I need dog food when I don't. No carrying a huge bag into my car as well as when I get home. It's right there on my door step. Honestly I have saved so much money. They have better prices and I no longer come home with all the impulse buys that I always did when I'm in a pet store. Thanks!

  • Blue Buffalo Basics & Blue Stix

    By on

    Blue Buffalo Basics is loved by our dog and wonderful for dogs with gastro-intestinal issues. Just really wish Chewy would bring back Blue Buffalo Blue Stix Lamb & Apple in the 6 oz bag. I had to sign up with another retailer just to get them at a good price when I'd rather continue to get them through Chewy.

  • Best for my dog

    By on

    I have a young dog who has developed itchy skin and was tested to allergic to various foods; mostly grains. I have changed her food to this grain-free formula and time will tell if she recovers from the itchy skin. The Chewy Company has always provided superior service.

  • Dog loves it!

    By on

    My dog is one of the pickiest canine eaters I've ever encountered. We feed him morning and evening, and he usually takes a sniff and then walks away, only to come back for small nibbles throughout the day (probably when he's so hungry he can't bear to wait any longer!). I bought this on a whim just to try something new and HE LOVES IT. He stands next to his food bin at meal times and waits for me to scoop it out, and then basically pushes me out of the way so he can scarf down his meal. I don't know if it's the brand or the flavor, but I do know we won't be changing his food anytime soon.

    I've just discovered allergies to foods for our cats & dog. This food, which our dog loves has helped with his itching & scratching. Chewy as a company is so pleasant to deal with & so quick in getting the food to us.
