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.

  • Finally got it right

    By on

    I am finding it hard to explain how happy we are that after 3 years of trying every brand I can think of. Some cheap, some not so cheap. We tried this and the first day she ate it we thought ok now let's see if she eats it the second day... Every time we got her food there was a pattern of eating it once and then never again... So when Molly our little chihuahua/Jack Russell rescue ate Blue Buffalo the next day and on going to say that we are happy just doesn't do it. Thank you is more in order that a company will go this far to see that every dog has the perfect food for them, I have to say THANK YOU.

  • Anxious Dog LOVES Blue

    By on

    My small 2 year old pekingese chihuahua mix has anxiety and when she gets over-excited her stomach gets really upset and she throws up and/or has diarrhea. I talked to the vet and decided switching to a food that was easier on her stomach might help with the problem. She used to eat Iam's adult food, and ever since switching her to Blue Basics (about 2 months ago), she hasn't had a single incident. She poops a lot more now but her bowel movements are a lot more regular and healthy. Not to mention, I love knowing exactly what I'm feeding her! I would highly recommend this product for dogs with sensitive tummies.

    When I ordered a Dog Food that my dogs were no longer eating (My Mistake) Chewy gave me a Refund & suggested that I donate the unwanted Dog Food to my local Animal Shelter, so I did. It was the night of a Big Snow Storm here in Quincy, MA and the Shelter told me that they weren't sure if they were going to have enough food for the duration of this storm. So when I made the donation they said they felt so much better now knowing that they had enough food and that they wouldn't be running out now. So the next time you have to get rid of Blankets, Sheets, Towels, Dog & Cat Food etc. please remember, don't throw them out, donate them to your local shelters because there always in need When I ordered a Dog Food that my dogs were no longer eating (My Mistake) Chewy gave me a Refund & suggested that I donate the unwanted Dog Food to my local Animal Shelter, so I did.

  • My dogs aren't loving it

    By on

    My dogs are not very picky but they do not like this food at all. They were already on a grain free food before I gradually introduced this one. They are hesitant to eat this food and never finish their meals

  • Great Dog Food

    By on

    I like Blue Buffalo. Have been feeding Blue Buffalo to my three maltese dogs since they were puppies and the oldest is now ten. These dogs are working therapy dogs and still in great health. Appreciate having Chewy deliver my products to the front door. Can't beat free shipping.

  • So happy with blue buffalo!

    This food has changed my Yorkies life. Between food allergies and sensitivities it was a constant battle of itching, dandruff and loose stools. After starting this food they've all disappeared. And he LOVES the food.

  • "Thumbs up" for this product

    By on

    My dog is suffering from skin problems which seem to be associated with food allergies. Blue Buffalo Basics seem to have resolved the problem. He has much less itching & scratching. His coat looks significantly better too.
