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.

  • Amazing Change!

    By on

    My year old Miniature Schnauzer developed a sensitive stomach around eight months old. It started with a virus and he never seemed to lose the awful GAS and rumbly tummy he would get every few days. He would eat like a pig one day and not touch his food all day the next. I felt so badly for him and started to suspect his food- which he loved. He was on Blue Wilderness Chicken which is grain free and a great food. After reading one woman's review of the Blue Buffalo Basics food I wanted to see if it was the missing puzzle piece for my poor pup. The change has been dramatic! No flare ups and no gas or vomiting or diarrhea! Just a mad dash to the food each time he's fed.

He's eating Basics alone and hasn't had a flare since we started. So far so good - I am so impressed with the food as well as the Customer Service at Chewy. I've never seen better :) … more

  • Solved food allergy

    By on

    My 2 1/2 year old Bouvier de Flandres had been eating Iams since she was a pup. This spring she developed itchy red patches, hair loss and watery eyes. The vet said it was possibly a food allergy (chicken by products). I read on the internet that dogs tend to develop food allergies at that age. I have had dogs for 30 years and nevert had one with a food allergy. My daughter went to pet smart and a blue buffalo rep was there and suggested basics. We started to feed her the lamb formula we she loved. Within a WEEK her symptoms were gone. I am a basics customer for life.

  • Good Food my dogs like

    By on

    For years I gave my Golden blue wilderness, he seemed to like it. When I got my Westie, I had a hard time trying to find a dog food that they both liked. My westie didn't like the suggested foods for smaller dogs and I was getting tired of buying two different bags of dog food, they did well with Blue Wilderness Chicken for a while, but then they both, either got diarrhea, got gassy and/or would skip meals. So I switched to Blue Basics Turkey & potato, they both eat at the same time no problem. Its much easier for them to stomach. They're no longer having gas or diarrhea. So that's always good.

  • My dogs love it!

    My 2 Bichons have food allergies. It is difficult to find 1 dog food that they can both eat. They both can eat a turkey based dog food but my male can not tolerate sweet potatoes. Most turkey based dog foods have sweet potatoes but this one does not. Plus the basics have limited ingredients so if you have dogs with food allergies, this is the one to buy. Blue Buffalo uses quality ingredients & turkey is the first ingredient. It does cost more but my dogs eat less of this food because it is of such a high quality, they don't have to in order to get satisfied. Therefore if you figure it up, it actually costs about the same as cheaper brands. Plus I have the peace of mind knowing that I am giving My 2 Bichons have food allergies.

  • Thank goodness!!!

    By on

    Had both of my boxers on B.B. Wilderness chicken (puppy 1.5 yrs and adult 3 yrs). Was doing great until one day the puppy started to have diarrhea... explosive diarrhea... did not want to take them off of B.B. so I went headed and tried the limited ingredients. This was PERFECT. Plus they always eat right away rather than waiting or not finishing their bowls. Lets hope this is one we can stay on.

  • Good food, all my dogs like it

    By on

    We have been moving food to food to find one all of our dogs like and does not bother anyone's stomach. We fed Acana until the formula changed, then Victor, then Earthborn, they ate them but did not really like them. I have 5 small dogs, one senior, two with stomach issues. They all run for this one.

  • Dog loves this

    By on

    I have been having trouble with my dog eating dry food. I mix it with some canned food but she still didn't want to eat. After trying several different premium brands, I tried Blue Basics and after a few days when she finally figured out it was something different in her dish, she decided that she loves it!!

    My daughter's small dog has had many problems requiring vet intervention since she saved him from a desert drop off. He tends to have stomach issues - which I am happy to share - have been addressed through countless dog food brand searches. This Blue Buffalo dog food has been perfect. He no longer has the stomach issues.

  • Great Product

    By on

    My dog was itching with the previous food that I was feeding him. I know better that it could be his food but wasn't putting two and two together. All of a sudden it occurred to me that it could be his food so I tried this one. He seems to be better but it's a little too soon to be sure.
