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.

  • 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.

  • Great for my sensitive standard poodle

    By on

    I switched to this food for my 11.5 year old standard poodle and she loves it! She has been on a limited diet for years due to food allergies but grew extremely bored with her duck and potato food from Royal Canin and simply wouldn't eat it anymore. Since we were already giving her Blue Buffalo Wild salmon treats, I decided to switch her to this food. It is one of the only salmon based kibbles that doesn't include chicken or chicken fat in its ingredients. She's doing great, loves her food now, and shows no allergic reaction.

  • Amazing results!

    By on

    The store I formerly bought my dog Olivia's food from no longer stocked the Limited edition Salmon & potato by Blue Buffalo. Happily Chewy has it and at a fantastic price. My chocolate lab has digestive and skin issues, but this food is amazing. Along with good skin care and this food, she looks so healthy and maintains a good weight. Thanks Chewy and Blue Buffalo! P.S. It's delivered to My front door--no more backaches lifting the 22lb. Bag out of my car. Bonus!

  • Changed my dog's life!

    By on

    Before we started Max, our Silky Terrier, on Blue Buffalo's various flavors of "Limited Ingredient Grain-Free" Formula Adult Food, he was miserable! He was constantly scratching! Vet tried several things, but no success, until I read about your food some eight years ago. Used to have travel 15 miles to a dealer, until my thirty year old son told me about Chewy.com! Thank you Chewy! You help simplify my life...

  • Dogs with food allergies

    By on

    I have been feeding my dogs this food most all of their life and have never had a problem with them developing food allergies. If your dogs has had trouble with severe food allergy responses then this is the food for you! My vet recommended this particular brand and combo; the salmon and potato. Either the salmon and potato or the salmon and sweet potato keep the dogs very healthy.

  • Great food with no chicken, dairy ingrediants

    By on

    My dog gets chronic ear infections so I switched her first to blue wilderness salmon dog food, but after a few months I saw no change so I thought I would try this food. It was so hard finding a food that is chicken and dairy free, but this fit the bill. It is to soon to tell if this will work, but her coat is softer and shiny. She also seems to like the taste.

  • Great for Digestive tract issues!

    By on

    We are feeding this to our dog who has digestive/liver issues and seems to have an intolerance to chicken or chicken by products. The frequency of his episodes of upset digestive tract seems to be reduced to an acceptable level with this food. We love that it is just 'basic' ingredients and so there are no fillers, unnecessary additives, etc.

  • Answered Prayer

    By on

    My dog has severe allergies which caused me to do a lot of research for the perfect food for her. The salmon in this product satisfies the requirements for protein in her diet, and the limited ingredients helps to alleviate her allergy symptoms. Maisy is a much happier dog due to my switching to this brand of dog food.

  • One of the few brands that my dog does well on.

    By on

    My husky had many problems finding food that he enjoyed but didn't make him sick. He has allergies to chicken and possibly rice, therefore we feed him chicken-free and grain-free. This limited ingredient food was a lifesaver for our pup. We finally found a food that worked for him and that he actually liked to eat. The only reason for 4 stars is that the food is on the pricier side, especially when there are other products with similar ingredients for much less.

  • Trying new dog food

    By on

    I gave this 4 stars because of good reviews. I'll mix this in with kobi's other food so she gradually makes the switch. I wanted to try a grain free food since she keeps biting her paws and this brand has had good reviews. I recently received it and will update my review after I try it.
