Questions & Answers

28 Customer Questions


what is the difference (small breed) between "Life Protection" and "Freedom" brands?
Answer by ChewyJun 20, 2017
Blue Buffalo's life protection formula contains grain while their freedom line is grain and gluten-free.

Does the kibble alone (without the LifeSource bits) provide complete nutrition? My dog won't eat the bits.
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
The LifeSource Bits have a precise blend of vitamins and minerals for a healthy oxidative balance. While the kibble would still be a balanced diet, the LifeSource Bits provide extra benefits.

How many cups are in the 15 lb bag?
Answer by ChewyFeb 11, 2019
There are approximately 12 cups in a 3-pound bag, 24 cups in the 6-pound bag, and 60 cups in the 15-pound bag.

What is the sodium content in this food?
Answer by ChewyMay 27, 2021
This variety contains approximately 0.48% Sodium content on an as fed basis.

Picky Eater

Our Granddaughter’s little dog has come to live with us. She weighs about 20lbs and came with a 25 bag of food, 10 bag of treats and she wouldn’t touch any of it. After much research, I decided to go with Blue Buffalo but which version for a picky eater? (For over 15yrs, we’ve been a family of Corgis and Bulldogs - food avoidance not an issue, lol). I ordered a small bag of 3 diff options as well as Blue Buffalo treats. Willow LOVED the new food and was very receptive to training treats. After 2 wks, she started ignoring her food again. Toss in 2-3 treats, peak her interest and she eats.

He likes It!

My dog food was out of stock. We tried this one with no problems. Did not expect such a large bag for my small dog...should last several months. He eats it and enjoys the flavor.

Baxter and his new treat

Baxter loves his new food, Life Protection Formula. With his former food he would eat it when he was really hungry. With the new dry food he eats it several times a day. It is a great treat for Baxter.

Finicky eater loves this

My dog has always been a finicky eater. She eats fresh chicken Most of the time, but finding a dry to you give her once in awhile has been difficult. She was at a friends house recently and walked up to their dogs bowl and began eating this Blue dog food. I was amazed because food doesn’t interest her at all! Now she eats a little of this dry food every evening and loves it. At 14 this food seems to help with her digestion.

Don't know

I had to change my digs food because Chewy discontinued my other food. My dogs will not eat this if it's alone, there has to be wet food mixed in. Honestly it doesn't smell like it reads.

He loves it

Rocky is picky when it comes to food. He ate the Blue Buffalo puppy formula with apples and yogurt but they don't make it for adults. In the past, he hasn't liked chicken and rice formula but perhaps his palate is maturing!

Good ingredients but....

I chose this food for my dog because of its ingredients...fairly healthy and mostly natural..made in the USA. Unfortunately, my dog doesn't like it. She literally pulls out the tiny pieces and puts them on the floor. Guess my dog prefers junk food!

New food for our girls

They took to this new dry dog food really well. During the transition they were actually leaving the old food in their bowls and eating all the new. Not any of the 3 had any issues changing over.

My Chihuahua loves it ! I keep a small bowl containing the small size pieces that is just right for her size, by her soft food bowl.
