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.

Is your feeding chart based on actual current weight or estimated adult weight? The pups we are bringing home were surrendered so we dont know their breed or estimated adult size
Answer by ChewyJun 10, 2018
The feeding recommendation chart is based on your dog's current actual weight. Please refer to the feeding chart below for instructions. This is strictly a recommendation and can vary based on your dog's health, age, and activity level.

What are the small bits in the food? Our miniature schnauzer picks them out and puts them on the floor.
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2020
This recipe includes LifeSource Bits to support your pet's immune system health. They are a blend of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins chosen by vets and animal nutritionists to support your pet’s immune health, life stage requirements and a healthy oxidative balance.

My pup is 3 months old and less than 3 lbs. The feeding chart says to give him 1/4-1/2 cup. Is that the total amount of food for a whole day or is that per meal (does that make sense?If they eat 4x/day is it 1/4-1/2 @ each meal?).
Answer by ChewyDec 28, 2020
The feeding chart goes by cups per day.

what kind of fruit are in it
Answer by ChewySep 14, 2018

Puppy loves it!

When I got my picky pup she was eating pate which is just too expensive of an option for me. After trying FOUR different brands, this was the one that didn't upset her stomach and that she actually enjoys eating. So grateful!

Small breed puppy food

My breeder sent home a different food I suspected was causing gas and other GI issues. I've transitioned my pup to this variety of Blue Buffalo and he is thriving! He's putting on over an ounce a day, is bright & energetic, and NO GI issues!

Not eating it

Started my small breed puppy on this food mixing with her previous food she will not eat it tried mixing with a liquid flavored recommend sauce she picks at because she is really very hungry but does not enjoy it disappointed the write up sounded so good but unfortunately she just doesn't like seam to like it I am persevering and hope she will get used to it.

Good puppy food

I used this food because it was highly rated for small breed puppies. My puppies ate it but I will be switching because they are adults now. So, off to research I go :)

Pieces too big for little breed

These might be ok if the bites were smaller, my Schnoodle decided they were just too hard and too big to eat!

Just opened a new bag and they have changed the formula somehow. My puppy is picking out the small roundish kibble and initially refused to eat all at until I removed the rest. Very disappointing as it took me a lot of tries to find this food.

never had a puppy food so awful

I carefully read all the reviews & decided to switch from Eukanuba small breed puppy to this. Transitioned as recommended & my puppy has had no stop diarrhea, day after day. Waste of money! Sadly I won’t be using this again
