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.

  • Great experience with this!

    By on

    We adopted 2 puppies last February and put them on Blue Puppy. They have done very well on it and we have hit their 1 year mark. We'll be switching to Blue Life Protection Adult. Hoping for the same results. Thank you Blue Buffalo and Chewy!

  • Pup loves it!

    By on

    Getting ready to switch from puppy food to adult dog food, and heard so many good things about Blue Buffalo products I decided to try a bag of puppy food from them. Our puppy absolutely gobbles it up! I had tried another brand of puppy food prior, which she would not even touch. She loves this one! Plan to buy the adult version of it next time.

  • Picky puppy loves it!

    By on

    All of a sudden, our 9 month old pup refused to eat her food. She wasn't acting sick, and after several days of "doctoring up" her food to try to tempt her into eating, I gave up and ordered the Blue Buffalo. And of course, the picky puppy has inhaled every bowl since it arrived. Will definitely stick with Blue Buffalo as we transition to adult food in the coming months.

  • My Dog Loves This

    By on

    Even though I ordered puppy food in error, I love that I no longer have to add extra wet food just to get my dog to eat. I just add a little water and she licks her bowl clean! I feel like I am feeding a healthier option and it saves me money not having to add wet food.

  • Consistently Great

    By on

    This is my food of choice for 3 healthy Shih-Tzus. They love it and they do well on it. They have no skin or other allergies now because it is grain-free, etc. Their coats are shiny, their eyes are bright and clear and they have great energy levels but are not hyper, of course. I know I'm feeding them good quality ingredients and feeding them like family!

    I love this dry food for my 5 month old lab puppy!. She loves it, as well as the canned from this same brand...And a huge thanks to Chewy.com for being so flexible with my Autoship orders. She has ever-changing needs and I appreciate how I can expedite and/or delay shipments based on our current needs...:)

  • Great product!

    By on

    My puppy absolutely loves Blue Buffalo. This food is definitely worth the price for a healthy grain free formula. The pieces are small and bite sized so they are easier to eat than other formulas.

  • Great product!

    By on

    Such an amazing formula for my dobbie puppies. The kibble is small enough for them. I love that this food has the option of being given dry or wet. Great quality and product. A little on the higher end of cheap but for the quality it is worth it.

  • Our 8 month pup loves it!

    By on

    Our blue heeler loves Blue Buffalo chicken and brown rice. She gobbles it up as if it were a bowl full of treats! Her previous owner fed her Purina’s Beneful, her coat was a bit dull. After changing up to the Blue Buffalo you can see her coat is silky! Totally worth the price!
