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.

Questions & Answers

27 Customer Questions


Where are all of the ingredients sourced from and where is this food made
Answer by ChewyNov 19, 2019
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. 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.

How many cups are in the 30-lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2018
There is approximately 60 cups of food in the 15 pound bag and there is approximately 120 cups of food in the 30 pound bag.

I feed my puppy the Life Protection Formula Chicken and Brown Rice for puppies. I would like to switch her to this one for large breed puppies (she's German Shepherd/lab mix) so it's bigger kibble. Are they same thing, only different in size, or would I need to transition her from one to the other?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2018
It's recommended to transition her food. Start by mixing 25% of the new food with your puppy's old food, and gradually increase the proportion of the new food over the next 14 days.

How come this contains Garlic? Isn't Garlic is really bad for dogs?
Answer by ChewyNov 26, 2019
When used in small amounts, garlic can help support the immune system and liver. It helps the cardiovascular system prevent blood clots, and reduces cholesterol/fat build up in the blood and heart. It also aides in the fight against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and increases the rate of killing off parasites. Garlic also helps increase the palatability of products.

She likes it

I was feeding my Bull Mastif pup another brand and it made her body odor really bad plus she was not excited about the taste. This brand has her smelling much better and she seems to like the taste much better. I don't know if it is as healthy as the other brand but she eats a lot of chow and the price is pretty good. When she gets tired of this I will need to switch again. Chewey has the best price on this brand and even beats Wlly worlds price.

recommended but not by my dogs

I believe this is a good product but my dogs don't seem to be taking to it at this time, am hoping they will like it eventually as I believe from my research that it is good for my big dogs. Even though they don't seem to care for it now with time it will be one they enjoy.

Healthy Dog Food!

Our German Shepherd Pup loves this food! Helping him grow healthy with good stools! Thank you Chewy!

Quality towards healthiness

I easily switched the ‘puppy chow’ $16 for 50 pound bag of dog food to Blue when I purchased our puppy. He stunk out of his pores smelling of the old dog food. Within 3 days of switching to Blue, he began to smell like a puppy once again. Every cat and dog on my farm eat Blue and because of that, I have healthy, strong, beautiful animals because of the Blue Buffalo food.

Blue Buffalo large breed puppy food

So far this has been a good dry puppy food for my 3 month old Doberman Pinscher pup. His coat is really shiny and so soft. He has a lot of energy and his stools are firm. I would recommend this for your large breed puppy for sure!

Puppy will not eat

My German Shepherd puppy loves the Blu Buffalo puppy food for smaller breeds but will not eat this Blue Buffalo for large breeds. I wasted $70.00

Pucky puppy

Blue Buffalo Large Breed is the first food that my puppy does not turn his nose up at after smelling it. He used to just walk away from his food. I’m so thankful to have found one he actually likes ro eat. And, I love home delivery.

Good nutrition with a puppy good flavor.

My puppy prefers this over the food she arrived with so much so, I sniffed both foods and I can understand why she prefers Blue Buffalo. Plus the nutrition is just right for her. More expensive perhaps but the resulting puppy will be in better health I'm sure.

HUGE INCREASE IN PRICE

I previously ordered this for $52 and when I went to re-order it was $63! Why? Will need to shop around, that's ALOT for 30lbs of dog food.

Expensive, but worth it

My puppy pitbull (who is now 10 months and 80#) loves his Blue food. We tried him on numerous puppy foods and he couldn’t tolerate them. Blue came through!
