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.

Answer by ChewySep 05, 2018
This formula is not grain free. However, it contains no chicken or poultry by-product meals, corn, wheat, soy, dairy or eggs.

what is the "Natural Flavor"? I have a dog with severe allergies and so need to know from what that ingredient is derived.

Natural Flavor in a limited ingredient diet will be derived from the protein source used in the formula.

Best option for my pups

I recently took in a German shepherd Anatolian mix puppy. Prior to having her, I only had my pure bred German Shepherd. She used the regular Blue Mountain life protection formula with no issue, but the puppy’s tummy did NOT agree with that food, so I switched her to the puppy life protection formula with no luck…. Long story short they eat together and they don’t eat fast enough to keep them separated (they eat one bowl over the course of the day) so I had to find a food that worked for both of them. I did everything how you’re supposed to every time… weening them off of one food and onto another… every time one of them would have an issue (tried 2 or 3 formulas)…. This food has been the best choice for these pups. They have no issues using the bathroom, and their coat looks great. They can deal with the salmon recipe or the turkey recipe with no issues at all. I’m not big on grain free, so I’m thankful I found a food with grains that works for both of them.

Awesome product reasonably priced .

Awesome. My dog is allergic to chicken and would scratch herself raw on her belly and bite till she would bleed. And often get infected. Chicken or some sort of meal with chicken is in every dog food. Not this one. And my Abilene is so happy and never scratches. I’ve tried so many in over 8 years and this product is by far the best. My Abi has been on it for 4 years now and the packaging changed but not the product.

Thought It Would Help

I have a dog who has allergies. I decided to change her over when we took a break from puppy raising so I switched her to this protein thinking it might help her allergies. Perhaps it was the timing of the switch, but she shed more than she has ever shed previously and her coat became coarse and dull. I switched her back to another pet food, and the shedding has stopped (again, time of year?) but her coat is once again shining and soft. As far as her allergies, she seemed fine on this food and there did not seem to scratch a lot, so it might be ok for your pup.

English bulldog friendly

My fat bulldog is on a weight loss diet and has food allergies. She literally was gnawing on the bag to try to get it open. So far, she loves this food and no allergic reactions! Will buy again

Wow! Is all I can I say! This food has changed my dog’s life. She had purina pro before and never really bothered with her food. It was making her overweight, lethargic and sick. It was recommended we switch to this food right away! She absolutely loves it! She runs for her dinner now and has zero stomach issues or skin issues! I highly recommend for picky dogs! Thanks Chewy!

Great value!

My dog loves this food. His coat is beautiful and he's energetic with predictable stools. Will continue to purchase this food for our very loved pet.

great at first

This food was great at first, my pup loved it and couldn’t get enough… but now she’s eating grass and snubbing away from eating breakfast, lunch or dinner. Not sure what’s going on but I hope the food doesn’t have anything funky going on with it. If only our dogs could talk! I’m going to switch her off this and try something different in the future.

Finally the right food blend for our dog

We are so happy with the Blue Buffalo basics skin & stomach dog food, our Jack Russell was scratching and chewing her paws so much. we started giving her this mix of dog food, and she's stopped the constant licking, chewing and scratching!! Love it!!!

Great Product

Recently switched to basics from another quality brand and so far, so good. My dog had anal gland issues that vet could not get under control so I thought maybe changing his food would help. Don't know for sure that the food had anything to do with it but after being on basics I have not had any issues. Dog loves it so I'm happy!
