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.

    Picky eaters love it!

    By on

    I have a few picky eaters who disliked every food they have tried after the first week. Not so with this product. The small bites are a plus, as they are small dogs.
