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 had this for about two weeks. When I first got my Akita I had problems with her rejection of several bagged foods. Of all the brands to chose she liked Gravy Train. I know! When I got the Blue Buffalo (in 2 days) she ate 1.5 cups (nothing mixed in which is a miracle in and of itself) and ate another 1.5 cups like she was late for the bus. This brand was recommended by a vet I tripped on while researching yeast infections. Allot of times she approaches eating like a Thanksgiving dinner with the family. So far, every meal with Blue Buffalo has been met with running in circles or playful barking because I'm preparing too slow.

  • Found a fair price

    By on

    I have been in search of a good brand of dog food for my St. Bernard. He has stomach issues and the regular dog food that we were purchasing at the local store just caused more problems. So, I went to a local pet store in town and found a brand of dog food that suited him well. However, it was a little expensive, a little more than I wanted to pay, but I bought the first couple of bags. We were low one month and just could not spend the extra money so I went back to our regular brand, that was a mistake. He was so sick for the 2 weeks, I really felt sorry for him.

I love this brand and I do not believe I will ever switch him from it. Thank you … more

  • Food switch

    By on

    We had to change the food we fed our dogs a few months back and made the switch to Blue Buffalo. I was definitely nervous to switch my aussie off of a food she had been on since she was a puppy and my husband's yellow lab was doing considerably well on. But, we still had to do something. After some research I found that labs do really well on this, especially if they have a sensitive stomach- our yellow lab has done SO well on this food! He hasn't thrown it up a single time he had been fed. My aussie still has fantastic energy levels, bright eyes and a beautiful coat; the only issue I have with her is still working out how much she needs to have the right weight.

  • they compare only lower priced dry dog food

    By on

    I fed my dogs Blue and they refused to eat the "added antioxidants" . They all left them in the bowl and my dogs are GSD chow hounds.So I can't see feeding a food that they won't consume all of it. I don't think Blue is fair in their comparisons of other dog food. They only compare dog foods made by big companies that don't always have the ingredients that are similar to Blue.I have tried all brands of dog food and my dogs have done well on other foods..It all depends on the dog but for my 3 Blue was not the answer.

  • Fromm to Blue

    By on

    thanks for your awesome assistance in leaving the Fromm products forever. I have used Fromm puppy to adult. No more. I greatly enjoy the convenience of ordering products from Chewy. Incredible customer service to provide customers 50 off while they try new products to replace Fromm. I hope you can pass this on to whom it may concern at Fromm. I will surely pass it on to all my friends and family.

  • Highly recommend

    By on

    I rarely write reviews but this brand deserves one. My 3 year old Blue heeler not only loves this food, but his body loves it too. I have tried countless high end dog foods and could never find one that agreed with his stomach until I bought Blue. He has zero stomach issues, a beautiful coat and maintains an ideal weight for his breed. I can't say enough good things about Blue Buffalo.

  • My little guy luv's it

    By on

    I was surprised how quickly my little guy started munching this food. He usually sniffs his food w alks away and goes back to it later, not with this, the minute I opened the bag and grabbed his dish he never left my side, he dove right into eating his new food. I'm pleased because he is fussy! The nutrients in this food are exceptional.

  • Sage LOVES it!

    By on

    Even though my package arrived a little later than promised, when the bag got here it was all smiles. Sage loves the food and the transition didn't seem to affect her digestive system much. My only critique would be to make the 30 lb bag with a resealable top to keep the food fresh over time. Other than that one thing, it seems great! :)

  • WE ONLY CHOOSE BLUE BUFFALO!

    By on

    Oddly enough, we first decided to move our dogs to Blue Buffalo food and treats when our 7 year old daughter, animal lover, told us about seeing a chewy.com commercial and all the benefits of chewy. She also went and looked online for videos about Blue Buffalo and told us the benefits of it as well. Our dogs LOVE Blue Buffalo. We love that they aren't just getting full from fillers, but nutritious foods!

  • My puppies are spoiled!

    By on

    This food definitely has amazing ingredients and smells way better than my last bag :) However, the search for the perfect food for them continues... I believe they are just so spoiled with treats that I know they would rather eat a bowl full of treats. In no way am I saying this brand is bad, its amazing! My pups just have an acquired taste *paw pinky up*
