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

9 Customer Questions

What are the “vitamin packs” mentioned in another answer that’s added to your dog food? What vitamins are in these packs? Can I get a full list of what is in your dog L.I.T. food and where are they sourced? I rather pay more than buy offshore. Thank you for your time.

About how many cups are in a 22 lb. bag
Answer by ChewyFeb 11, 2019
The 4 pound bag contains 16 cups of kibble, the 11 pound bag contains 44 cups of kibble, and the 22 pound bag contains a 88 cups of kibble.

Are any of these ingredients sourced from China?
Answer by ChewyNov 29, 2017
Blue Buffalo will source their high-quality ingredients within the United States depending on availability. However, certain ingredients will need to be outsourced (i,e: Lamb, Venison, Duck, Rabbit, Vitamin Packs, etc.) to ensure top quality and freshness while meeting a reasonable price point for pet parents.

Would the kibble size be too large for a Chihuahua ?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2018
This formula is suitable for dogs of all breed sizes.

Made Dog Sick

This food made my dog sick. I switched slowly. I switched back to her old food and tried this food again. My dog had issues each time. My dog typically does not have stomach issues or any issues switching food other than she's picky. Won't buy again.

Good for my dog with sensitive stomach

My dog is two years old now and still eating it since she was one year old. She has food allergy/intolerance just about everything. Because of that, she is also a picky eater. Therefore, I first give her the amount less than she usually will eat, then add a bit more each time until she stopped eating. I don't leave unfinished kibbles in the bowl because she will never eat them again. :-( So, I put them in a zip lock bag to keep them as fresh as possible. Then, give them to her when it's time to feed her again or when she asks for food which means she is hungry and will eat them all. Then, add in more when she still want more. So far so good! Give it 4 stars because she is not crazy about it, yet, I can't see she will ever crazy about any commercial dog food. But, she needs the nutrition's in the dog food.

Dakota loves her dog food

This is the one food I found that contains no chicken products. My yorkie has skin issues and chicken just irritates the problem!

Picky eater says thumbs up!

My picky little Fur baby actually gobbled this up the first time I gave it to him. Have been thru a half dozen prior dry foods which he turned up his nose to so I’m happy we finally have a winner. He suffers from skin allergies that seem to be improving also so I attribute this the limited ingredients and grain free recipe

Tummy Trouble

Our female dog seems to have a sensitive stomach. We finally decided to try a food that dealt with that issue. After some research into the topic we decided on Blue Buffalo Basics. We are still in the process of transitioning from our previous dry food to Basics. So far so good. Both the female and her brother seem to like its taste, in that they are eating it without hesitation.

All lifesource bits, no kibble

I know this isn’t Chewy’s fault but the bag of Blue Buffalo Lamb and Potato I received was literally filled with just the lifesource bites and not the normal kibble. I had to read the bag three times to make sure I bought the right bag for dogs. And it was for adult dogs but very disappointed I received a defective bag of kibble and now I have to go out and buy another bag because of this.
