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.

  • Mr. Picky actually eats it! (kind-of)

    By on

    Waffles the Chihuahua has never been a fan of kibble... or any dog food for that matter. Gabby the purebred mini-mutt always preferred the kitty's kibble. They both patiently reject their wet food in hopes of scoring table scraps, so most of that goes to waste. You just don't find small-breed dry food in the grocery stores, and the big-box pet store selection is overwhelming and you don't know what to try. So I found this Blue Buffalo option by searching here on Chewy.com. I like that the kibble is sized for their jaws, and that it seems moister than most dry foods. Both my picky eaters will actually take it too, so I guess it has the approval of "Team WaG!"

I would have given five stars had my dogs just gone straight for it :-) … more

  • Best food I could ask for!

    By on

    I have a 6-7 year old 12 pound pug/chihuahua mix. She has always had weight flunction problems. But once I switched her form Bella Small Dogs Purina (2.5stars) to Blue she became more alert, more energetic, I no longer have to worry about her weight, I do water her food down to soften it up as she is getting out and hard food is hard on her teeth. But she loves her food, her poop is always normal and stress has really been listen! Also a 6 pound bag lasts me almost 3 months!

  • The best food ever...Gidget says.

    By on

    My Chihuahua, Gidget, became overweight in her older years & I started her on the Life Protection Formula. Shortly & gradually she lost that weight & loves this food! I offered her to change food recently when I realized she had eaten food from 2 different friends' dogs bowls. Big Mistake I will never make again! She just wanted to try their food but not in HER bowl!! lol I had to place a special order to get her food back asap & between I had to hand filter her food from the new food where I had mixed them. At 10 years old Gidget will forever now be on this food which keeps her healthy & HAPPY!

  • Probably my little pup's favorite dry food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My 17-lb pup is quite a picky eater when it comes to dry foods, but I think he likes this one okay. This may even be his favorite dry food. We do mix his dry food with different wet foods to get him more enthusiastic about eating, and he's been eating really great with this! Poop has been good too. With some dry foods, he's not so enthusiastic even after mixing with wet foods.

    Unfortunately my female pug has been a picky eater since I rescued her. I cooked for her and she does well with eating, but they are days when I can't cook for her and spent the time in trying to feed her, so I purchased this dry food from Blue Buffalo for small adults. No more picky eater, my prayers are answered. She enjoys it and is now a happy healthy pug. I have no more worries about her diet.

  • My dog, Pax lives this kibble!

    By on

    I had not tried Blue Buffalo but decided to change Pax's kibble...he was not at all fond of his last one. He now eats this on a regular basis and loves it is perfect bite size for his Pomeranian small mouth. From my view, it smells good and looks rich.

    I have been giving my Cav this brand since he was a puppy (we started with the puppy version and switched to adult when he turned 1). We stick to the feeding instructions and he maintains a healthy weight and he loves the food!
