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.

  • Our senior pups love it

    By on

    We have 4 Shih Tzu dogs who are all over 9 years old. One of them had terrible allergies and scratched all the time, and chewed holes in her skin regularly. Two of the others had a hard time digesting food, and vomited quite frequently. So I wanted to find something that was grain-free and easy to digest, that would give added immune support for our aging puppies. It took a month or two to see results but after that we did see an improvement. The "scratcher" still scratches some but not nearly as much, and we see way less throwing up (usually only when the gal with the non-functioning "full meter" gets into the other dog's food and gorges herself!) The only complaint I would have is the We have 4 Shih Tzu dogs who are all over 9 years old. One of them had terrible allergies and scratched all the time, and chewed holes in her skin regularly.

  • Good food for older dog with delicate constitution

    By on

    My 15-year old terrier mix has always had trouble with dog food agreeing with her. Several years ago, my vet suggested hypoallergenic prescription food. That worked for a little while, but my dog started having indigestion and didn't want to eat the prescription food any more. I bought this food (along with the canned version) and she loves it. Her stomach has stopped making funny noises and her bowel movements are normal. PLUS, it's cheaper than the prescription stuff.

  • Excellent Dog Food

    By on

    I highly recommend this dog food especially for senior dogs. Our dog had a lot of allergies and couldn't tolerate most dog foods until we tried the Blue Basics. Our dog had a problem digesting most of the dog food on the market until we changed to Blue Basics. He is no longer throwing up his food, his coat is beautiful and he loves the food. Thank you Blue Buffalo! I might add that the price of this food is much cheaper through Chewy.com than it is in the stores.

    Just wanted to say that I feed the senior blue buffalo to my older shepherd and she loves it. It's a little more expensive than most dog foods but I believe we get what we pay for. Great product that I would recommend to a friend.

  • He likes it!

    By on

    The dog would turn his nose up at his Nutrish or have upset stomach. He kept stealing the cats' Blue Basics so we tried the dog version. So far he likes it....and no tummy issues.

    Although most food is a big part of Emily's day, she does love this Basic; she is quite vocal when it is time to fill her bowl.

  • Dog Food Change

    By on

    My dog has been on Blue Buffalo since we got her 4 years ago. My last auto ship order we decided to go with a senior formula. Unfortunately the food did not agree with her and she needed to be on a grain free formula. I found that Blue Buffalo had a Basics formula in senior formula and thankfully she is doing very well with it. I had 2 bags of 24 pound food I was not willing to use so I looked into returning the one unopened bag. I saw that Chewy would pay for shipping so I called them. The representative asked me if there was a local shelter I could donate the food to and they would refund me. Wow now that's what a call great customer service!!

  • Works for us

    By on

    Needed a limited ingredient and grain free, high fiber food for my dog who is paralyzed in his hind end. He has had a very loose poop and with a paralyzed dog that just doesn't work. This Blue absolutely did the trick for him. His stool is firmer than it's ever been and he is doing well on it. Of course I love my orders from Chewy which is always my first choice when hunting something for my dogs.
