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.

Questions & Answers

21 Customer Questions

Where is this product made? Does any source material come from China?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2018
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. Many of their ingredients, such as most grains and meats, like chicken, beef and turkey come from the United States. Lamb and venison can be free range from the United States or New Zealand. Rabbit is sourced from Europe, and trout can come from the United States or Canada. Where possible Blue's suppliers are instructed to source their ingredients from the United States. Where the ingredients are not readily available in the United States, such as many vitamins and minerals, their suppliers will only work with reliable foreign companies, and subject all ingredients to rigorous quality testing. None of the ingredients are sourced from China.

My Black Lab loves this food

I try to change it up, so my lab doesn't get board. She really loves this particular brand and flavor. She tries to still it out of the main container when I'm scooping into her dish. I believe Blue is a quality product with a reasonable price. I would recommend but do your research to make sure it is right for your dog.

My Senior Lab Approves

Our 12-yr-old lab had lost his appetite for the premium food he had been eating for many years. I decided to try Blue Buffalo - this senior dry food plus a senior canned food - and his appetite returned! Very thankful to be able to keep our sweet old boy healthy in his geriatric years.

Not a favorite!

The smell truly makes me feel like vomiting, every time I open the dog food container. And my dogs dislike it intensely. I had to throw out the bag. I have moved to Purina one vibrant maturity, which my dogs adore!

As always, on time and correct!

Chewy continues to be the most reliable and competitive provider of everything we need for our pets. Great service, quick, accurate and top quality. As other on line vendors slide their delivery times from two days to a week or longer, Chewy remains on schedule.

Dog Loves it

So far so good. Need to change to this brand because of unavailability of our previous brand. So far during the phase in period our dog loves it. Of course, she is a Lab, and she will eat anything. The smaller kernels do make eat a little slower which is good.

My dog is finally eating all his food

My dog is 14 years old. He has never finished all his food. We would literally have to stand by him and encourage him to keep eating. No matter what type of food we got. Now that he is older, he is having a lot of joint pains. I started looking into senior food. He loves this stuff! We mix it with Rachel Rays PEAK Wet dog food. And we also add fish oil. He has finished his dinner every night since. Some nights we even have to add more dry food, which he goes to town on.

little brown bits

my dogs like this food, but all 3 will pick out the little brown bits (pellets). They are strewn all over my floors. Dont know what they are made of but the dogs (3diff breeds) just will not eat them!

She don't like the little black balls in the food.

The little black balls in this food must be nasty. My dog spits them out and I am tired of picking them up all over my house. Will not buy this again.

Blue Buffalo Review

My dog is 8 years old and I was looking for a dog food for a senior dog that didn't include all the grains, etc. of most dog foods. He loves the food and he can't wait for feeding time.

Great energizing cereal

Our grand dog is full of energy since she starting eating the blue senior dog cereal. Lost couple pounds and now walks endlessly and runs in spurts. However, I add a tablespoon of peas and carrots and a tablespoon of boiled shredded chicken making sure to created a delicious gravy.
