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 three dogs. Two Chihuahuas and a Siberian Husky. Two of them are picky eaters especially my Husky. She would only eat ol Roy and sometimes goes a day or two not eating. With Blue Buffalo I can put it in their dishes fast enough. They all love it and the food size is perfect for any size dog. Noticed a big increase in my huskies energy and her diarrhea cleared up the next day and beyond. Wish I made the switch a lot sooner.

    I am trying to transition two my dogs from a more expensive brand to BB to save a little money. BB appears to be a high quality food, and likely a better value. No problem with dietary issues, but one of my GSDs doesn't finish it all without coaxing. Its a wait and see at this point. She does have dietary issues, problems gaining weight, but she typically feeds quickly.

  • Switching to a different food

    By on

    I've been feeding BB for a year now because of all the great reviews and the amount of advertisements I see. I decided to check on the company and the food; I was horrified to see the amount of recalls for a company that started in 2002. I have also started to see changes in my dog. Switching my baby to fromm instead. Chewy is a great company but not so much BB.

  • Dinning with great relish!

    By on

    My 2, 6 mos. old Airedales love the Blue Buffalo. Kernel size is just right and excellent ingredients. Will def. use as a staple. I do supplement with boneless chicken, steak, boneless chops. Dogs get the shaft on the longevity scale so I at least want them to enjoy food that is healthy and enjoyable.

    Mama got this food for me and switched me from another brand. I ate it right up and didn't fuss over it. I love it and I even love those little bitty pieces that look like blueberries. I'll be getting her to order more. This is my favorite food ever! Thanks, Moo

  • Good stuff

    By on

    My dog is now 8. When she was a puppy she got gastrointenitis a couple of times before we switched her food to Blue Buffalo. There were no issue after the switch! The only down side is her breath smells bad but let’s be realistic, it’s dog food!

  • Our dog loves this food!

    By on

    Our German Shepherd dog Whiski, loves this food. We switched because she was having skin issues and we heard Blue Buffalo was good. She doesn't hesitate when we put her food out, she eats it right up. And her skin condition seems to be improving. I highly recommend this product!

    I just started trying this for my dogs because the Idea behind its invention seems logical and I was looking for a food that seems to satisfy my dogs better. This seems to do the job. They aren't begging to eat as often

    I recently adopted a rescue Pit Mix who was severely underweight due to having kennel cough and not wanting to eat. After putting weight back on her by feeding her eggs and puppy kibble 3 times a day, I began looking for a permanent dry dog food. We originally went with Purina One Adult SmartBlend from a local store and she began rapidly losing all the weight I worked so hard to put back on her. After TONS of research, I decided on this particular product due to it's nutritional content, ingredients and the fact that it's geared towards "active" dogs. Since I made the switch, she has maintained a healthy weight despite being a very energetic and playful dog.
