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.

  • My dogs say : Delish !

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    My dogs have been eating Blue Buffalo since puppyhood, so this food is a staple in our home. My lab mix is super picky about what flavor of Blue she'll eat, so she prefers the chicken and lamb flavors over any other. My Weim will eat anything Blue, so I try to keep her interested by changing it up every so often for her. It's always anything good idea to change the type of protein that dogs are fed every few months anyway. I love that this food does not contain any bone ash, as well as the fact that it has a lot of fruits and vegetables options included in it's formula. This provides top quality food to our dogs, and that's important to us...and them !

    My Australian Shepherd started to stop eating and getting sick when she ate another brand of dog food from a local store. I had checked into Blue Wilderness before in a feed store once and thought I couldn't afford it. Well let me tell you... my dog has not gotten sick since she has been on this food! And I feed half of what I did!!! One, this is a money saver, two my dog is not sick anymore when she eats and three is eating a dog food she loves along with the other 2 dogs! And to have this delivered to the door AND is cheaper here than in the store... this entire experience has been a blessing. But my baby girl is eating and happy on Blue Wilderness.

  • Tried Others No Comparison

    My Mom first bought the food because my friend and I shred so much. Mom is allergic. Also we are getting old. Not only did we shed less and have more energy, this food is yummee. And my friend lost some of him belly too. Later Mom tried another food to save money. Our hair started to get thicker (all over the furniture and floor ). It looked like Mom was chasing bunnies with a broom. Mom went back to this food after that. We are very happy. So if you Don't Want to Chase bunnies with a broom then get your Mom to buy this food. Two Happy Dogs

  • Makes my dog gassy

    By on

    We love Blue Buffalo products and have been using them for 6 years now. We would buy different formula once in a while to change it up. However, this time, after a little over 2 weeks of introducing this formula to both of our dogs (7 & 1) we starting to realize that either one or both frequently pass bad gas. Will keep a close eye (nose) on the situation for the next 2 weeks. If they can't adjust to their new food, we may have to stick with grain-free formula.

  • Finally a food my dog loves

    By on

    She was on Orijen (needing cheese/bacon spray) but Chewy no longer stocks that food so I switched her to Taste of the Wild. I would have to put human food in it and she wouldnt eat for days until human food was used. So this time got Blue Buffalo and I put it in her bowl and now she just gobbles it down, she loves it and saves me money buying human food. After a 1 1/2 years of different foods Blue Buffalo is her steak.

  • Fast and fresh

    By on

    I've ordered a couple of times (so far) from Chewy.com (my pug's name is Chewy). We sometimes wait too long to get more Blue Buffalo dog food and it's long distance to get more so....the 2 day shipping is great!! Free shipping on orders over $50 so we just add a dog toy to reach that amount. You can never have too many toys especially with a puppy.. thanks Chewy.com

  • Healthy and Tasty

    By on

    I believe that's what my yellow lab, Sadie says! She has become a picky eater and she truly appears to love this - I've been looking for dry food that she will eat without any moist food or human food mixed in. Unusual for a lab, my experience is they will eat anything and everything! This appears to work for both of us!!

  • Perfect way to shop!!

    By on

    My 2 1/2 year old mini Aussie has been eating Blue Buffalo all along, She loves it! I feel good about giving it to her! Getting her food through Chewey has been a life saver!!! I don't have to go to a big box store and stand in line, haul it out to my car and then back into the house! It is just delivered to my front door!!!

  • Approved 4x over!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Good quality food and a decent price. All 4 of my rescues enjoy this flavor. 2 eat it the second I put their bowls down. 2 are more grazers than gobblers! Solid ingredients and lots of happy reviewers led me to give Blue Buffalo a try and I am glad I did.

  • my dog hates this

    By on

    My Havanese girl HATES this, but to be fair, she really doesn't like kibble. She prefers Fresh Pet, or Tylee's (frozen). My new Poodle doesn't much care for it either. Overall it seems to be high quality, but since they don't want to eat it, that doesn't matter much. But we LOVE Chewy.com
