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.

Prego Mama loves it

We recently took in a stray from our backyard and our vet informed us that she was pregnant. I was concerned about getting her the proper nutrition for those babies. The vet recommended a good kitten food that would also give the Mama what she needs for the babies development. My male cat has been eating this brand and formula cat food for the last 5 years(he loves it) so I got the kitten variety for Mama. She too loves it and sometimes prefers it to the wet food that we give her. I will be weening the babies on this when the time comes.

A good choice!

We started feeding our kitten this food shortly after picking him up! We haven't had any problems with it and he seems to really like it!

Kitten Rescuer

My husband and I rescued a total of 5 malnourished and dehydrated kittens this winter. I started them on Blue Healthy Growth Kitten Food after a trip to the vet and as soon as they were able to eat solid food. It was amazing to see how quickly the sickly-looking bunch turned into healthy, playful kittens. The good nutrition that Blue offered and lots of TLC from us did much to save these little darlings. They are all now in their forever homes and still thriving!

My kitty begs for it

Been feeding my only black kitten Gotham blue buffalo healthy growth since she was 6 weeks old and the vet always checks her out with a clean bill of health. I like it because of the ingredients so as a result her coat is always shiny & soft & mealtime is a breeze cause she absolutely loves this stuff. Can't wait to advance onto something else as soon as my kitten becomes a cat.

The girls are obsessed

Our kitten 9mo and older cat 2yo cannot get enough!! Need to transition to indoor health bc its a becoming an issue for mama lol glad to know that we’ve found a flavor they love. The kibbles are very small though and seems like the baby has a hard time getting them into her mouth sometimes.

Finally found it!

My kitties are on their second 7lb bag of this food and there hasn’t been one episode of vomiting after eating. With other brands there would be daily incidents. They eat a can of wet food a day and free feed this dry food. They took to it right away. I’m so happy to have found a food they enjoy and is easy on their tummies!

kitten food

My kitten has been eating this for 2 months. Our local supermarket sells it for $15 for 5 lbs. You were $25 for 7 lbs. They were temporarily out but will probably go back to them.

This food worked really well for my kitten

I fed my kitten this food from the day I got him all the way up to when he was 11 months old. His growth and development was good. His coat was very healthy. And, just as important, he really loved the flavor.
