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.

    By on

    This dof food has little hard bits in it; i can only assume is freeze dried fruit. My dogs spit them out or they get lodge between their teeth. To get them to eat it i have to put blue can dog food mixed in. Althiugh this is a heslthy food; for seniors this is a trying foid fof them to eat. The one dog i especially wanted this food for is leaving a large portion in his bowl. So ill look for another one they can eat hsppily

  • Good food; bad bag

    By on

    After 4 weeks, my senior dogs really enjoy the food and appear to be doing well on it. I intensely dislike that a 30 lb. bag of high quality dog food is not resealable, however, and will try other foods that have resealable bags for large quantities of food. Resealable bags are the norm, not the exception, and I was surprised Blue Buffalo undervalues the convenience of maintaining freshness through their packaging.

  • Solid, healthy kibble

    By on

    This is a product I prefer to feed my older dogs since the company is usually detail oriented and has some glusonamine/chrondrotin in it to help with aging bones and joints. The manufacturer tends to price it kind of steep and is stingy with coupons. It is wonderful that a firm such as chewy.com sells it more reasonably priced, making it easier for a limited income single pet parent of 2 to provide quality dog food.

  • Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula for Senior Dogs

    By on

    First I'd like to say how impressed with Chewy.com... This was my first order with Chewy... I received my order in two days, packaging was perfect... As soon as I filled my dog bowls, both doggies immediately went to town and loved their new chow... Am so glad a co worker highly recommended Chewy to me... Thank you Chewy for making the best natural and healthy pet products...

  • Love for Blue Buffalo Life Protection Senior Chicken & Brown Rice

    By on

    My owner just switched me over to Blue Buffalo Senior blend, and I just love it. I have been eating Blue Buffalo for Adults for the last seven years, and it was great but, now my Vet suggested I need to change my diet. Like a great mother and father they agreed and reached out to Chewy. com. Just a wonderful shopping experience for me and my parents. Chelsea

  • Great Food - Difference in Senior Dog

    By on

    I tried Blue Senior food for my dog Mack, my 9 year old Staffie. I saw a difference in him quickly. Within a few days, he had more energy, and was more playful with his siblings. He was more lively and animated (his younger self re-emerged). After 2wks I saw a difference in his coat. His coat looks healthier and his fur is softer.

  • A low protein dry dogfood they'll eat

    By on

    Speciality dog foods are expensive and I don't have the funds to go through didn't brands until I find the dog food he'll eat. Blue Buffalo was my second selection. More pricey, but if he'll eat it, I will get it for him. I really appreciate Chewy working with me on this decision. Their staff is quite knowledgeable about the products they sell.

    I have had my mini Aussie Shepherds on this food since I got them from the breeder. That is what they recommended so I stuck with it. They are 4 and 6 years of age now so we are giving them the senior now. I would highly recommend this to each and every breed. No fillers.. No junk. Just awesome food and nutrition for my boys !! :-)

  • Dogs love taste, I love lush coats and renewed energy

    By on

    I switched to this food for my older mini dachshunds. They love the way it tastes (even the picky ones) and get so excited for dinner time. I noticed changes in the luster of their coats and in their energy levels. Well worth the price! I am glad I decided to try it out.

  • Sunny's Blue

    By on

    Sunny absolutely loves this food! She's a pretty picky eater and she always comes running whenever I pour her a cup. She's getting up in years so I'm hoping the Blue Senior formula will keep her vital. So far, so good! (Sunny is a 7 year old black lab mix)
