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.

    Blue Buffalo recommended Chewy.com to me when I notified them about not being able to find this particular type of food for my oldest critter, Toby. I came to this site and BOOM there it was and I ordered. The customer service at Chewy.com, either phone or email, has been top notch and they have won me over with their concern for my Toby as well as making sure he is getting what he needs. This food is perfect for him and his digestion and especially since he is 15 years old. Chewy is now my GO TO when it comes to my pets :)

    My dog loved this food! He has itch issues, so I wanted to find something that was good for him, and included omega vitamins for his skin and coat. He has been itching a lot less since I put him on blue buffalo!

    I have a Rescue Dog who is 11 years old (a senior) and wasn't sure if he would like a new dog food...well, he loves it so now I know exactly what he likes. Thank you, Chewy.

  • So far so good

    By on

    This is my dog's first adult food and so far he loves it. His last food, which was still puppy food, he seemed to like but the size of the dry food was a challenge for him. Often he would leave some food in his bowl, not with this food. He eats every bit in no time flat. So as my title states, so far so good...

  • Tastes Great

    By on

    At least that's what my miniature Poodle thinks. This is the first food I've ever gotten him that I didn't have to mix with his old food for him to "get used to". He just went to his bowl and started wolfing it down. He loves it! No upset stomach from changing his food either.

  • Great food

    By on

    We have been feeding Blue Buffalo exclusively for both our boys since we brought them home 7 years ago. We recently changed to Lamb & Rice from Chicken and Rice with hopes of clearing up the Schnauzer bumps and it has worked perfectly. An added benefit is that they love it. Great service as always from Chewy..
