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.

    When our dog was a puppy, she had severe diarrhea and we were constantly taking her to the vet. It seemed like every couple of months we would try a new food that we had to buy from the vet's practice. A friend told us about Blue Buffalo - problem solved. That was 14 years ago and we eventually moved her over to Blue Basics based on our NEW vet's recommendation. At 14 and 50 pounds, she is still a healthy and happy dog! Thank you Blue Buffalo! And ordering from Chewy couldn't make it any easier to purchase.

  • Tried another brand and had to come back!!

    By on

    We tried a different limited ingredient food and it was not good for our girl. He coat became dull, her skin was irritated and she was hungry all the time and NOT gaining weight, even with the extra servings. Goes to show that what’s on paper isn’t always best for the pup.

    My dog has allergies. No fish, no feathers and no grain for her, which does not leave me with alot of options. I have tried many other brands, but the Blue Buffalo Basics Lamb & Potato Recipe is what works best for us.
