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.

Questions & Answers

20 Customer Questions

Where is this product made? Does any source material come from China?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2018
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. Many of their ingredients, such as most grains and meats, like chicken, beef and turkey come from the United States. Lamb and venison can be free range from the United States or New Zealand. Rabbit is sourced from Europe, and trout can come from the United States or Canada. Where possible Blue's suppliers are instructed to source their ingredients from the United States. Where the ingredients are not readily available in the United States, such as many vitamins and minerals, their suppliers will only work with reliable foreign companies, and subject all ingredients to rigorous quality testing. None of the ingredients are sourced from China.

Our dog loved it!!

Hi I’m Daisy and I love Blue! My parents are adding this as extra to my prescription dietary brand and it is keeping me full longer . I’m hoping I can eat it all the time as my only food soon! I have had no tummy trouble. I would recommend this food to any of my my dog friends . Oh, I tend to gain weight a little easier at my age and I seem to be staying trim, so no need to worry my fellow seniors . Eat Blue Buffalo and be happy!

Quality senior item

Just not for my senior. This has a nice aroma but my rottie is not keen on it. Have to put on toppers for him to eat. Wish they had large kibble in 15lb bags for large side dog to start off with

100% recommend.

My pup, ok our senior girl, is 11. We had her on blue buffalo most of her life and then about 8 months ago we welcomed another pup into our family, so we were going through more food. So, stupidly of me, I decided to switch foods to try and be a little more cost effective. Well, I noticed a complete change in our senior. Her hips seemed to be bugging her more, she was more sluggish, and just not as playful. Also, our pup started having skin issues due to new food, and it wasn’t even fast food type of food. So 4 weeks ago we switch back to blue buffalo, order puppy food for our pup and the senior blend for our old girl. AND LET ME TELL YOU, the change has been incredible. She’s back to our preppy girl. She just seems happy again. Along with her vitamins, the glucosamine in the senior food has really helped with her mobility and I think eating the healthy diet of food has just made her feel better over all. I will never switch again.

No Complaints yet....

When my vet gave me the news that I can start feeding my oldest dog senior food, I was devastated, naturally. (He is still my baby!) Distraught, I went to the local pet store and found this. I haven't tried it myself, but even my non-senior dogs haven't had any issues. It has glucosamine and chondroitin for their joints, so maybe his "senior" years will be no big deal ;).

My dog loves it.

My senior whippet mix normally eats Purina One - Senior, but it hasn't been available. This stuff is expensive, but she loves it. I will be going back to the Purina One as soon as it's available. I'm on a small fixed income and I have to do my best for her with limited $$.

Two thumbs up!

Reggie has been on Blue all his life due to food allergies. He is extremely finicky. It is awesome that this product has a senior formula. This twelve year old still acts like a puppy!

Dogs Hate It

I bought a large bag of this dog food and BOTH of my dogs hate it. My beagle will eat ANYTHING, but spits out this food. My Maltese sniffs it and walks away. A waste of $55.
