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.

Good for my little dogs

My little dogs have food sensitivity, and this food works well for them. No itching or hot spots. The kibble size is better for them than the blue basics "adult" version.

Blue Buffalo is great food

My dogs love this brand and flavors. I mix the dry kibble with Blue canned food and a little water. They gobble it down right away.

Blue Buffalo basics

I switched to Blue Buffalo Basics because my miniature Dachshund has a difficult time pooping, large, hard. The basic diet seems to help him, and he certainly like the taste. Still have to add a little MIRALAX to his food, but I certainly think his food makes a positive change for him,
