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 little guy loves it!

    By on

    Sparky is 15 years old and needs a low protein food. We've tried many different brands and flavors and this one seems to be "the one" he loves! Finding the right food, protein level, and flavor that he just chows down on is a relief. Chewy makes it easy to find out the necessary nutrition information for each food, prices are good, and updating our Auto-Ship is simple and convenient. Sparky loves this so we are all happy!

  • Great for Senior with digestive issues

    By on

    We have a 12 year old Golden Retriever who has developed a very sensitive stomach as he has aged. After much online research, I found several great reviews for the limited ingredients of this product, some even giving it a better review than prescription dog foods. We have been gradually switching him from his current Blue Buffalo dry food that he has been on for years, to this one, and the results have been very good so far. We will be switching solely to the Basics Senior on my next order.

  • Dog loves this food!

    By on

    I have an 8 year old female pug named Ruby, and she recently developed food allergies (specifically to chicken). I wanted to get her an older dog formula because the older dogs need a different protein amount, and this food fit our needs perfectly! She has been eating it every day for the past few weeks and seems to enjoy it! Would definitely recommend for older dogs with food sensitivities.

    Zoe had been vomiting at nite. Finally figured her food might be the problem. She has been on Blue for many years. It was suggested trying Blue Basics for senior dogs. Works great to date. Thank you Blue Buffalo.

  • Thank you!

    By on

    The food is great. The delivery person left it against the garage door even though I was home with the car parked in our driveway. At 9 months pregnant it made it difficult to bring into the house but everything was timely and as expected.

  • Senior beagle with stomach issues

    By on

    Our beagle is 14 and he was having stomach issues on his previous food. Once we switched to turkey and sweet potatoes (people food), his stomach was fine. We are trying this food to see how he reacts. It's been 10 days and so far so good. I like the level of nutrients for seniors and lack of "fillers" like other dog food options.

  • 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.

  • miracle dog food

    By on

    This dog food has changed my dog's life, literally. He no longer throws up his food, he is calmer, and more alert. He is sleeping through the night, finally. I highly recommend this food for a senior dog who has a sensitive stomach and/or behavior problems. It is amazing.
