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.

  • Great price and shipping

    By on

    I have been feeding htis to my dobs for well over two years and they love it. I had been purchasing this locally and I am all about shopping locally but with Chewy's price and free shipping, I pay $10.00 less and don't have to drive to the store and pick it up.

  • Lamb did the trick.

    By on

    I have 4 very pick eaters. 3ShihTzus and 1Schnauzer. We spent a small fortune trying to find something they all would eat. Needless to say we tried everything on the shelves, nothing worked. I kept seeing the commercials for Chewy. Com. I thought I cannot afford home delivery. Well, to my surprise, I could afford it and it comes to my door. I love it! No more driving all over the county to find Blue Buffalo Lamb and Brown Rice cans and dry. All my fur babies love Blue Buffalo!!!

  • Mostly good

    By on

    We've gotten probably 5 bags of Blue Buffalo from Chewy so far, and this is the first time there was really a problem. The bag showed up with about a 3 inch gash on the side of the bag near the top. It was a clean cut so my guess is that they were on a palette at some point and they got sliced with a box cutter as the palette was opened up. Food was still fine, though a little was in the box as a result of the cut. I'd still use the service again, but just wanted to let the company know about the issue.

  • Blue Buffalo Senior Dog

    By on

    We have an aging Great Dane (10.5 years), who's starting to lose control of his bowels ("sharts" while laying in his bed). The switch to Blue Buffalo Lamb and Rice as dramatically reduced this issue for our sweet old man.

  • Blue Buffalo For SURE !!!

    By on

    We love chewy. We've saved $$$ and Time. They have the best customer service ever. They are also very pleasant to deal with. I normally paid 75% as much as chewy charges and only received half as much. Dogs love it.Blue Buffalo Lamb and Brown Rice is their new favorite. Thanks, Blue Buffalo & chewy. John & Betty Hodges

  • Great Food - Bad Bag

    By on

    I have ordered this product twice and both times, the package arrived with the bag split open and food all over the inside of the box. I store it in a large plastic container so generally only lose a few cups, but it is rather a poor packaging selection.

    Both of My dogs seem to really like it. I think it's a healthier choice than what we were using. They are 10 and 11 years old so healthy food is essential.
