  • Great product

    By on

    I love Blue Buffalo products, my dog and chickens like it too! I used to have a cat who suffered from feline herpes (chronic respiratory problems) and the only brand that would help her was Blue Buffalo, ever since, I trust this brand. Chewy is just great, fast shipping!

  • Great food for small dogs

    By on

    My girls love this food. I have two small dogs under 7 lbs! They are my babies and I tried to read as much as I could ahead time to make sure I was getting a good food for them. I think I did it. They eat well and have grown as puppies should.

  • Great product

    By on

    I would recommend this product to everyone. Not only do I know how the companies process is going into making the food for pets but the product is great quality food. My puppy’s coat is so soft smooth and shiny. He loves eating it and he has a great digestive system because of the great quality of food given. Love this line of food.

  • Good for my Yorkie

    By on

    I fed my puppy another brand from the breeder but it caused a lot of water eye discharged on him. I read some reviews and it seemed that Blue Buffalo will be a good alternative to replace his food. It took me a 6 weeks of mixing the food slowly to help his stomach (he has runny stool during the adjustment period). I noticed a BIG change to the eye discharged when he eats Blue Buffalo. The eye discharge did not go away but definitely it is now a minor thing.

  • Quality food!

    By on

    This is the only puppy food I've found that my pup will eat and not get sick. It's nice to find something that doesn't have rice or wheat in it.

  • Aussiedoodle and mini aussie approved!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Both pups love Blue Buffalo products. This small breed puppy choice is best at the moment for my 5 month old, 15 pound mini aussie because the pieces are smaller, therefore easier for him to eat. My 8 month old, 45 pound aussiedoodle eats other blue buffalo dry foods but loves to grab a mouthful of this whenever he gets the chance. Great buy and thanks to Chewy it is more affordable and delivered quickly!

  • Blue buffalo products perfect for poms

    By on

    I had my pom when he was about 7 weeks old , very tiny and about 3lbs.I feed him blue buffalo for pups just 1 to 2 cups a day. I alternate the flavor varieties whenever he finishes a 15lb bag. I also give him blue buffalo treats. He is now a little over 5 months and have grown a lot!
