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.

    I have used Blue Buffalo products for the last several years - an adult formula for my 7 year old Basset Hound (has been on this brand for almost two years) and now that I have a 4-month-old Golden Retriever puppy, I use the puppy formula for him. Neither of my dogs have excess gas that other dog foods have given my other dogs (past and present) who ate other reputable, costly brands. Blue Buffalo food has proven to be easily digested by both dogs and I have not run into issues of vomiting or loose stools with this brand with either my older dog or my puppy. I have also had no problem with them wanting to eat it and the Basset Hound is a persnickety eater and would skip meals in the past with I have used Blue Buffalo products for the last several years - an adult formula for my 7 year old Basset Hound (has been on this brand for almost two years) and now that I have a 4-month-old Golden Retriever puppy, I use the puppy formula for him.

  • My Dog Loves This Food

    By on

    I have been feeding my dog the Blue Buffalo Freedom chicken weight control and for about a year and she liked it but in the past few months she started to act disinterested at meal time. This was very out of character for her because she has always had a big eater. I tried this food for her and she absolutely loves it and is back to her old eating habits. I will definitely purchase again.

  • Great food

    By on

    I recently changed from Dick Pattens low calorie diet food. I wanted to change because of the excessive amount of dog food dust in the package. I am very pleased with the Blue Life Protection formula I purchased. No dust. my dogs really like this food. They tell me they want more in their bowls after they finish there meals. Good food at a good price.

  • Nothing but

    By on

    My Lab mix has really had nothing but Blue Buffalo in her 5 plus years. I tried a cheaper food once for a few months and noticed a difference in her coat immediately, something that she always gets complimented on. Yes it's more expensive then those cheaper brands but you can mix other good things in to add to the recommended amount of food for your dog. To save some money I mix in some raw baby carrots or thawed frozen green beans. She loves them, they're good for her and it stretches the dog food dollar.

  • The standard bearer for dog food

    By on

    I have been feeding my Labs a combination of Blue Buffalo and another dog food in equal proportions for 8 years. Like most Labs, they have robust appetites and enjoy mealtime. They virtually inhale their meals! I trust the very high quality and secure packaging of this brand. Chewy had a very attractive price. Further, the delivery arrived very quickly. Thanks, Chewy!

  • Best Dog Food For My Girl!

    By on

    I own a blue heeler mix Miko, she's always struggled with her weight despite trying several different diet foods, exercise, & and a strict restrictions on treats, but we've never had any luck except with this food. It took a while but she managed to lose the weight and keep the weight off! She now gets to enjoy treats and eating full meals. She looks fantastic as well. Definitely worth the money.

  • A great start

    By on

    We use this to help keep our catahoula's weight just right but our terrier has been losing so much weight we just add wet food (gives him more fat content)...a great start to keeping them healthy. We rotate the different flavors (thankfully their tummys aren't sensitive) and they really enjoy it...not the same old.

  • Great dog food!

    My Bella, an older female lab whose weight I am trying to watch because she is a big girl, eats this and she loves it. Her coat is beautiful and she has been very healthy her whole life. I know it is due to the good nutrition from Blue Buffalo. She has eaten this brand her whole life.

  • Nikkis' food and treats

    By on

    Nikki seems to enjoy the chicken and brown rice food, but it's only about half gone and I think she is getting bored with the one flavor already. I should probably order smaller bags and purchase different flavors of Blue Buffalo each month. She loves the snacks!

  • Likes this better than..

    By on

    I switched to Blue Buffalo because my Bolt was just not feeling him old dog food. Well I’m glad I did. He loves it! I have no problems with him eating this, and even though I didn’t get grain free (oops) he had NO stinky gas issues!
