Questions & Answers

34 Customer Questions

Do you need to still blend when changing to the adult version of this food?

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.

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.

Blue Buffalo chicken & brown rice

I love Chewy but when I opened the bag of Blue Buffalo chicken & rice for puppies it smelled rancid - just a really bad, rotten odor. My puppy nor my dog would eat it. They both smelled it, sneezed, and walked away.

picky eater

We have the rare golden retriever that doesn’t like dog food. She’s one now but we’ve been free feeding her since she was 8 weeks and will continue free feeding. We’ve tried half dozen or more kibbles and she “settled” on blue puppy formula. Now that she’s switching to adult food she won’t touch the blue adult formula. Starting the search all over again.

Coopman Gives B.B. Five Barks

Coopman just wasn't thriving while on his previous dog food. He wasn't excited about eating. After reading many reviews I tried Blue Buffalo and I've seen a huge difference in his appetite!!. Definitely a healthier choice. I've subscribed for Autoship and Chewy is very reliable!!

Read bag not description

We ordered this based upon the description on Chewy saying Large breed puppy. After a few days of it we realized it’s not intended for large breed puppy’s. A little frustrating because this was not a cheap bag of dog food.

Dog loves it

When rescued, my dog was eating pedigree and would only nibble. I started him on blue buffalo and he eats his entire meal in one sitting. I can tell he really enjoys it. The ingredients list makes me happy too.
