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

28 Customer Questions

Is this product manufactured in USA? Are all the ingredients from the USA?
Answer by ChewyAug 18, 2017
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. Many of their ingredients, such as most grains and meats such as 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.

Happy Tummy

My 16+ lhasa apso has always had a sensitive tummy and this basic non grain turkey formula not only agrees with him but he loves it! I blend it with the canned version and some water put it in fridge and then make little balls for him. He has very few teeth left plus this is easier for him to gobble up and less mess!

Chewy doesn’t deliver when promised

My dogs love the food, but chewy didn’t deliver when promised and the reoccurring ordering doesn’t save any money. Very disappointing.

Our girls don’t like it

I know this is a good product, but our 3 German shepherds do not like it. Even Martha who likes everything won’t eat it

Limited Ingredient, Ha Ha Ha

It is good food, but to say it is a limited ingredient food is a far cry from the truth! I lost count at sixty, that is right 60 ingredients!!! Really do not see how they can claim that it is a limited ingredient food. That is all.

Good food. Poor handling before shipment

Good brand of food, but when the bag of food arrived and I opened the box, the dog food bag had a huge slice down the middle which made all the dog food go everywhere. Not happy about the mess. Would be good if handling was a little more careful before shipping.

Fixed my dog's severe itching and greasy coat!

My dog is the love of my life but she tested me when it came to her picky eating! I can't tell you how many brands and different flavors dog food I went through till I found this one! In my pursuit to find one that she liked she began to have stomach and skin issues! She would being constantly itchy and would develop a greasy film on her skin and would yellow her white fur! I could not find a food would eat and would solve this problem until I came across Blue Skin & Sensative Skin! This food has fixed my babies itching and greasy coat! Now after a bath she stays beautiful bright white!

Great tasting and enjoyed

It's gard to find a great tasting dry dog food that my Bones with touch and eat. He has itchy skin and a bit of a sensitive stomach. I've gone through lots a dry food but he let's it sit all day eats a bit and leaves in his bowl. Bones actually enjoyed this dry dog food and ate it all. He liked the flavor and seems to agree with him and he does seem less itchy as he's not scratching as much. I only buy grain free as my opinion is it is better for my pets so that's how I roll. Will put this on auto bi monthly order and relax with a happy 7 year old pup and too many kitties in the house.

Blue Basics Turkey

I’ve always liked most of the products I’ve bought from Blue Buffalo, this one did not disappoint. It’s a good food and my dog likes it. I went back to this after she got bored and overly sheddy on her last food. She’s gone through two bags of this so far. I didn’t see a huge improvement on her shedding but it’s still a good food. I just switched her to Wellness Complete though to get a little better quality ingredients to see if that helps her shedding.
