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

When is your dog considered a senior dog?
Answer by ChewyOct 30, 2017
When your pet reaches 7 years old, they're entering the senior stage of their life. This recipe is formulated to meet the specific needs of small breed senior dogs.

Is this food made in the USA.
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2018
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 United 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.

Does the bag reseal after opening?
Answer by ChewyNov 21, 2017
The bags aren't resealable.

How does this help a dogs brain function?
Answer by ChewyJun 18, 2019
This recipe is not formulated to improve cognitive function.

I called in trying to find out when the 15lbs bags would be back in stock as buying 3-5lbs bags was to expensive. The customer care rep not only checked on when the larger bags would be back in stock, but also offered to send 3-5lbs bags at the same price as the 15lbs bag saving me money.

Happy Dogs

I have 2 small breed dogs, one of which has few teeth left. She swallows all food and treats whole. Finally, we found the Blue Small Breed Senior. Both dogs love it. They seem to have an easier time when they potty, too. We free-range feed, and the dogs don't overeat, and are maintaining a healthy weight. They tend to gain weight over the winter, and have not done so this winter.

What happen to 15# bags

My senior dogs do really well on this food, my complaint is I was buying 15# bags at a good price, but now they only offer 5# bags, so if I buy 3 - 5# bags it is double the price of a 15# bag, may have to switch food which I really do not want to do, but double the price of the food for the same quanity, not good

Amazed at the results

We have a 9 year old chihuahua who had a hard life before we adopted her and we started her on Blue Buffalo because her skin was so bad and she was missing a lot of hair. Truly, within 2 weeks her skin improved in a major way! We were impressed so much by that! We were feeding her the small breed adult food before, but since we switched to the senior formula she seems spunkier than ever, which was our hope!!

Chewy To The Rescue!

We needed to change our boy, Bernie's food as soon as possible due to his age and weight gain, per the vet. So we were able to change his Auto Ship order and he got his new food within 2 days! Thanks Chewy!

Molly the puppy says

I love the Blue Buffalo Senior. My daddy gives it to me twice a day. He says I should lose some weight if I keep going for walks with him.

SeniorDog Food

Purchased this for a Dachshund that will be 12 years old next month. He has had some dental work done and the smaller kibbles are easy for him to ead. He enjoys the flavor and grazes on the food all day long

Good product

I have been using this product for several years and as far as dry food goes, I am satisfied. It has become sometimes difficult to find lately with empty spaces on the shelves so I appreciate being able to get this from Chewy. I have two dogs, one 5 and one 15 and their health is good.

Fussy Eaters

Chihuahuas can be very fussy eaters. I switched to Blue for older small dogs. My girl is 13. At first she wouldn't eat it. But ate every bit for dinner. She loves it.
