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.

  • My dogs love this food

    By on

    I have a 14 1/2 year old Westie, who has suffered with allergies, and been on allergy meds., his whole life, but is an absolute doll. One day it occurred to me, FINALLY, that maybe his allergy was to his food, so I changed to Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Small Breed Senior Chicken & Brown Rice, and he LOVES it, AND IS OFF HIS ALLERGY MEDICATIONS. It is still a little difficult for him to chew because he has lost a few teeth now, but I soak it in homemade chicken or beef stock and he gobbles it down. I LOVE BLUE BUFFALO and will NEVER change food for my babies ever again.

  • My fussy Japanese Chin turned their noses up.

    By on

    I was excited to find a small breed, senior, Grain free food, but have had to go back to my Blue Buffalo grain free Wilderness because my three dogs would rather go hungry than to eat this. The kibble was only slightly smaller and they really had no problem with the size of the regular kibble but I was looking for the additional nutrients for senior dogs. I also have Cavalier King Charles dogs and they eat anything so they will be able to finish up what the Chin wouldn't eat.

    I get this food all the time, my dogs love it. But for some reason it was not the small breed food. The package says that but the food is larger than the small breed I have got in the past.

  • ????????????

    Not really sure yet, I know it's good food but can't tell if my dogs like it or not, they're leaving bits and pieces every where but bowls, both of them,I don't know if they are saying something or not, so I'm going to try for the month, the first time I got the diamond food they liked, just to big for Chihuahuas, don't know what to do, but wait.

    This dog food makes our dog’s coats so healthy and shiny! It really cuts down on their shedding as well, not to mention less poop to pick up outside. Very high quality!

  • Poodle sez Yuuuuuummmm!

    By on

    I'm transitioning my dog to a senior food, so I bought a small bag of the Senior Chick and Brown Rice to gradually mix in with the Blue Buffalo Fish & Rice that he's eaten for several years. He wolfed it right down. Quick shipping as usual from Chewy!

    I have two small dogs both of which have hip and knee problems. The vitamins and mix seems to do the trick to keep them up and running around. Highly recommend this great product from Blue!

    Our dog Honey has been on Blue Buffalo for several months and likes it very much. We were just beginning to have trouble finding it at our local store so we decided to try and get it from Chewy. What fast delivery. Within two days and we didn't have to leave the house. Thanks Chewy. Mrs. Bramm

  • Great food

    By on

    We recently had an issue with our older 14 lb dachshund having an new allergy to food. We bought this for her to try out and no more problems! Kibble size is small which is great & the texture of the food is not too hard for her aging teeth. Also, noticed a nice change in her energy levels. She is back to running around and playing again!
