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.

Questions & Answers

13 Customer Questions

Do you sell the Blue Basics grain free limited ingredient duck and potato recipe in the 11 pound bag? I really need the medium bag . The large bag would go bad before my dog finished it .
Answer by ChewyApr 19, 2018
At this time, this formula is currently available in 4 and 22-pound bags only.

Are all ingredients made in the United States?
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2018
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. Many of their ingredients, such as most grains and meats, like chicken, beef and turkey come from the United States. Lamb and venison can be free range from the United States or New Zealand. Rabbit is sourced from Europe, and trout can come from the United States or Canada. Where possible Blue's suppliers are instructed to source their ingredients from the United States. Where the ingredients are not readily available in the Unites States, such as many vitamins and minerals, their suppliers will only work with reliable foreign companies, and subject all ingredients to rigorous quality testing. None of the ingredients are sourced from China.

What are the crab levels in this dog food?
Answer by ChewyJan 01, 2018
This product contains approximately 48% Carbohydrates; however, the manufacturer is always improving their formulas so the content may change in the future.

What is in the "NATURAL FLAVOR"? My furry friend is allergic to Pork, Lamb, Soybean, Rices, Oat, Kelp, and Sweet Potato.
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2020
Natural flavor is made of processed fruits, vegetables, spices or fermentation products to enhance the taste of pet food.

Failed Again

I’m struggling to find a NON chicken kibble my fussy Mah-Shi will eat! This one Failed again, now I have this huge bag no shelter/rescue will take because it’s OPENED!!! Sell sample packs please! WHY DOES EVERY DOG FOOD MANUFACTURER HAVE TO INCLUDE CHICKEN!!!!!???? There seems to be many dogs with chicken sensitivity or allergies!!! I’ve tried so many and my 4Paws only likes science diet sensitive stomach CHICKEN, mini kibble. But he scratches too much so I stopped giving it to him after reading about allergies. He ate this for a year+! Scratching stopped and his fur grew back thicker! My journey has been horrid! Salmon was a bust too! His fav wet food Cesar Duck recipe with secret CHICKEN!!!! FRUSTRATING!!!!

Basic skin and stomach care

My dog is a picky eater. With that being said she doesn't really like these treats. She is eating them with her noise up but I don't see a difference in her skin, which is what I was hoping for.

Cured my dog's ear infections

We took our dog to the vet for ear infections; constantly scratching her ears, bacteria in her ears, etc. We got her allergies tested and come to find out she was allegeric to almost every ingredient that dog food comes in - sweet potato, rice, chicken, wheat, milk and more... this food was on a list from the vet and doesn't have any of these ingredients and as worked wonders! she is infection free and LOVES to eat her food now. before, she would go several meals without eating, almost like she knew the food was hurting her. i recommend this food and an allergy test for sure!

My Lab has been dealing with allergies, itchy skin FOREVER. Started him on this 2 weeks ago and it’s been a miracle! Finally no more itching!!! Very pleased with this dog food!

My dogs really like this

We recently switched to this brand due to my dogs randomly starting to not eat our previous brand. Our aussie has extreme allergies and can only eat duck protein. They really seem to enjoy this food and usually clean the bowls.

Hard to find

It's hard to find dog food without sweet potato or chicken in it, both of which my dog is allergic to. She doesn't get ear infections or lick her paws all day on this food.

Works so far

Had to remove dogs from Royal Canin because of corn allergies. This is one of the lowest fat kibble I could find. So far, it is working in controlling their stomach issues.
