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

22 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.

I have 2 dogs at 10 year old rat terrier and a 5 year old shih tzu Yorkie mix will this be alright for both of them?

Dogs Love It!

My Aussies will be 11 this year. They have eaten Blue Buffalo since they were pups and love it. They both are on the Senior formula now. Coats are soft and shiny. The kibble helps cut down the tartar buildup on their teeth. They have good BMs. All is well. Vet is also pleased. I highly recommend this brand of dog food.

Smells Weird

I got this thinking it was going to be the same as the Small Breed formula, but they're very different. I'm sure it's good for some dogs, but mine didn't like it. Also, it has a weird smell to it.

Perfect for my senior chihuahuas!

I bought this for my 2 senior chihuahuas (10 & 13) and they absolutely love this food! My 13 year old has only a few teeth, and cannot eat any kind of wet food without it upsetting her stomach. This food I soak with warm water for a minute before I feed her, and it becomes so soft and squishy. I have also noticed increased energy, and overall health with my dogs in a short period of time. I also was nervous about swapping their food as both of them have sensitive stomachs, and they took well to both. I really recommend this food!

Yummy for our puppy!

I changed to Blue Buffalo after comparing ingredients with another well known brand of dog food for our senior dog. Also, she looks forward to her meals and always tries to eat the bowl hoping she didn’t miss anything.

Time saver

Great service, food was delivered the next day, Saves me a lot of time from running around and I had to move the shipment up at the last minute. Never had a problem getting the food on time when needed

Both my dogs hated this!!

My dogs tend to eat just about anything put in front of them, but neither one of them wanted anything to do with this food. :( It has a very strong smell compared to other foods. They would pick around it when I first introduced it with their current food, and now I can't even get them to eat their current food because they know the "new stuff" is in there, too. It might be good for dogs, but my crew is giving it a hard no.

Convenience

My vet recommended a senior food for my 10 year old Collie and she has been doing great on Blue Senior. Since it is low in fat, I add coat supplements to her food and her coat is beautiful. She has energy and enjoys long walks every day. I have recommended it to many people and I enjoy the convenience of her food and meds delivered to the house.

I see a difference

My 12 yo needed a low phosphorus food because it is hard on kidneys. My vet did not want her on Rx food yet. I was feeding science diet 7+ but her poops were too soft. This food has 6% phosphorus and 6% fiber and it has firmed up her stool. Also her coat has become a much deeper shade of red. My other dog (shepherd)black coat is very shiny . I attribute this to the food. I also jut started salmon oil 5 days ago. Vet said good for kidneys.

Very Satisfied

Product delivered as advertised and on time. Price went up a small percentage from the time I placed the order, but since the product is a prescription food there isn't very much I can say about it.

Blue is the best

Scout (Australian Shepard) is 14 years old and has never got tired of the senior chicken and rice. The hard stuff and the canned. She is slowly loosing her teeth.
