Description

Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula was created for the health and well-being of dogs. All formulas start with real meat, whole grains, garden veggies and fruit, plus added LifeSource Bits, a precise blend of nutrients that have been enhanced with a Super 7 package of antioxidant-rich ingredients. This Puppy Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe features delicious, protein-rich deboned chicken. And because puppyhood is such an important stage, it features ingredients that support healthy growth and development.

  • Vitamins, chelated minerals and antioxidants for immune system health

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.

  • Puppy Dry Food

    I love this dry food for my 5 month old lab puppy!. She loves it, as well as the canned from this same brand...And a huge thanks to Chewy.com for being so flexible with my Autoship orders. She has ever-changing needs and I appreciate how I can expedite and/or delay shipments based on our current needs...:)

  • Consistently Great

    By on

    This is my food of choice for 3 healthy Shih-Tzus. They love it and they do well on it. They have no skin or other allergies now because it is grain-free, etc. Their coats are shiny, their eyes are bright and clear and they have great energy levels but are not hyper, of course. I know I'm feeding them good quality ingredients and feeding them like family!

  • Picky puppy loves it!

    By on

    All of a sudden, our 9 month old pup refused to eat her food. She wasn't acting sick, and after several days of "doctoring up" her food to try to tempt her into eating, I gave up and ordered the Blue Buffalo. And of course, the picky puppy has inhaled every bowl since it arrived. Will definitely stick with Blue Buffalo as we transition to adult food in the coming months.

  • Good food for GSD

    By on

    I've given this to my 13 month German Shepherd since I got him at 8 weeks old. He has never had an issue with gas or diarrhea at all. He has loved it so far, and weighs ~80-90lbs. Once I finish his current bag of Puppy food in the next few days he is going to start on the Wilderness Adult line of food.

  • Great product!

    By on

    Such an amazing formula for my dobbie puppies. The kibble is small enough for them. I love that this food has the option of being given dry or wet. Great quality and product. A little on the higher end of cheap but for the quality it is worth it.

  • Blue Buffalo puppy Food

    By on

    After reading the ingredients on the bag, this is the best puppy food I have found for my 2 puppies. I'm so glad I came on this site and found it at such a good price. My puppies love it & I can see how healthy they are. I love the fact that I can have it delivered to my door, which saves a lot of time. I definitely will be purchasing more of this then switching them to the adult formula when they get older.

  • Great food, results

    By on

    My adult dogs eat the same as this puppy version and its the best out there. When we adopted our new puppy, we knew this was going to be all we'd use and he loves it so it makes a great transition into the adult food. Highly recommend!
