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.

    Highly Recommend

    By LogansDad on Aug 26, 2020

    I read other reviews on this product. My Logan, 6 lbs spoiled rotten Yorkie, is a very finicky eater and had been requiring extras added to his dried food to eat. I’d read where others with feeding issues tried this with great success. Same here. On his first serving he ate this like it was ice cream without any extra added seasonings or flavors.

    Dog loves it

    By LilMerm on Aug 19, 2020

    My year and a half old dachshund rat terrier mix seems to love this. She’s 7 pounds. I was feeding her the dry blue buffalo small breed puppy chix and oatmeal , but seems she likes this better. I have them mixed together for the transition. I do like Her to have oatmeal in her food.

    The Best for my fur babies!

    By Sunshine on Apr 14, 2020

    Blue Buffalo food is top of the line dog food. Wide variety of food choices for all sizes in both dry and wet. My dogs prefer dry. They have adult dog food/puppy food and a variety of foods for weight control and aging dogs. My fur babies are small breed and the size of the bites are perfect for their little teeth. Other foods I have used in the past have all eventually caused digestion problems for my dogs. Since switching to Blue my dogs are never sick and their bowel movements look healthy and firm (not hard). Just tried this fish and brown rice-dogs are finishing this up even faster than normal!!

    Lion’s new dog food

    By Kathy on Jun 28, 2020

    My vet wanted me to switch his food to a grain inclusive diet. Blue Buffalo Life Protection is a highly rated dog food so I chose it. He really seems to like it too.

    Our Dogs LOVE this food

    By DogMom on May 16, 2020

    Our dogs love it and they are picky eaters. Also the kibble is perfectly sized so my cavapoo and my beagle mix can eat the same food.

    Another option

    By OraVetchews on Sep 23, 2019

    My Havanese has been happily eating Blue Buffalo twice daily for 11 years, chicken flavor. Maybe a change was in order? Trying this fish flavor and he seems to like it very much.
