Do you need to still blend when changing to the adult version of this food?
Answer by Clyde2Jul 02, 2022

What type of prebiotics are in this BB puppy formula and how much per pound or cup?

are any ingredient from china
Answer by ChewyFeb 06, 2020
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 Unites 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.

Is the meat used free of hormones and antibiotics?
Answer by ChewyJan 31, 2018
The meats used in Blue Buffalo products do not contain any antibiotics or added hormones.

Nutritious and Chester likes it

It's nutritional and Chester likes it.. I don't think he cares too much for the little black round pieces because they are harder to chew. Chester is over 1 year and this is the only dry food I have ever given him. I will continue feeding him the Blue Life Protection until he's 2 yrs. old because it has a high protein content and the 1st ingredients are deboned chicken, chicken meal, brown rice, oatmeal, barley, fish meal, and then some added fruits and vegetables.

Puppy food

Love this brand of food! I have used it for years and was dog free for a while and went right back to it since I love it so much. The quality is way better for them than many out there.

Ease and Quality

Having a large bag of dry dog kibble delivered means this small-sized senior doesn't have to drag the bag in and out of the grocery cart or in and out of the car. It comes into my garage quite easily where it stays until I scoop out the amount needed into my puppy's bowl. We're both happy.

Dog doesn't like it

Maybe he is a picky eater, but he keeps turning his nose up at it and walking away. I will keep trying, since I bought so much...

Our puppy eats it.

We switch to this from what the breeder used. He likes it and eats well. I dont know what else can be said, It appears to be a better formula that others while still being affordable

Sorry I Purchased

I wanted a great quality food for my puppy and purchased this 30# bag. I regretted it from the first scoop. My puppy smelled it and walked away. I tried everything for over a week to get him to eat it but he just wont. It was a complete waste of money.

Yorkie breed

She was an adult soft food the breeder sent her home with. He was unable to find any puppy food anywhere. I found a small bad at the grocery store and wet it of course. She loved it but it made her itch everywhere so I asked my mom what she fed her dogs and it was the same food we ordered for our larger dog. So I got the Blue Buffalo puppy food for tiny breeds and I have seen a big difference in her energy and it’s small so I don’t have to wet it. We will continue to order this and hope they don’t run out.
