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.

Miscue on order

We ordered one bag of dog food which arrived in a timely fashion at our home in Millis. We later had a call from our former neighbor in Sturbridge to say two bags of the same food had been delivered there. I checked my credit card and saw had geen charged for three. Called Chewy and they saw the error and quickly corrected the situation.

Bad food for my senior dog

Our Springer was deteriorating which we attributed to his age.He refused to continue eating this food.We switched to an organic food and he is a different dog - like reverse aging. I don’t know what is wrong with this food but would never buy it again. Chewy shipped this to us and will not respond to my email saying we didn’t order it and want to return it.

I wanted my dog to like this.

My cats like Blue Buffalo kitten food, but my dog is very fussy. He will only eat dog kibble if it is mixed with some other food that he likes. I am on a hunt for a healthful kibble he will eat without doctoring it up. I hoped this one would be different. Same old problem.

They really like it!

We have 3 dogs eating this right now (a 2 year old GSD, a Springer Spaniel and a Doberman/Pit mix). If how quickly they devour it every day is any indication of how much they like it then I give it really high marks.

Blue Buffalo dog food rocks

I've always had problems getting my lab mix to eat dog food - ANY dog food. I finally got her someBlue Buffalo dog food and we are now customers for life. She seems to like the food, and her energy has picked up as has her general mood. She's more playful, maybe cause she is losing some unneeded weight, maybe from the dog food. Try it and see if you dog doesn't like this better than what you are feeding it now.

Excellent Product

Changed to Blue Buffalo a couple weeks ago from a grain free brand. Maggie was not really eating well before, she would actually skip meals, sometimes twice. We thought she was just not being hungry or something. Now she looks forward to meal times!! She has not skipped a meal since the switch over, not even when we were doing the mix with the old food to get her accustomed to Blue Buffalo. She jsut loves this food. And comparing the ingredients is just a no brainer for us.

Good stuff dogs love BB.

This food is Awesome! Our puppies are now over a year old and we started feeding them Blue Buffalo a few weeks ago. Positive change, their coats are so shiny and they appear to be much happier with BB. Older dog has more energy (positive for him not so much for pups. The picky eater is no longer leaving food in her bowl!!

Get rid of the small pieces!!!!

My dog eats EVERYTHING....even loves raw Brussel sprouts. But the small pieces in this food she absolutely HATES. She takes a mouthful and spits it on our tile eats the big pieces and only leaves behind the small stuff. It has been 2 months on this food and 2x a day I feed the dog then vacuum up the reject pieces. Unfortunately gad to switch back to a previous food.

Rosie Loves this food

When I buy Blue food, I feel like I am giving my dog the best food I can and still being thrifty. She loves it also and it is not much more than other brands but so much more healthier.
