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.

  • We want the best

    By on

    Was told that the food that we were feeding our 2 year toy poodle was not the best, and we want the best, Blue Buffalo is very highly rated, so we gradually switched her over. She likes the food, and seems to be doing good. If there is a better dry dog food for toy poodles, PLEASE, let me know

  • Very Small Kibble

    By on

    I purchased this product in the regular adult size and my small morkie would eat it only if I broke it into small pieces. I then found this in the Toy breed formula and it is probably the smallest kibble I have seen. Very good if your dog likes super small kibbles.

  • Can't stop eating

    By on

    My Yorkie loves the taste of his new food. Tried different brand wouldn't eat it without putting some treats on top. Once the treats were gone he stops eating the food. Now you can't get him away from his bowl until everything is gone.

  • Great for Teacup Dogs

    By on

    I have a 4#Yorkie and most kibbles are to large n hard for him to chew. This brand is the best for him. He loves it except for the black pieces. He picks them out but eats the kibble. Highly recommended

  • Picky Chihuahua Approved

    By on

    My 3 Year old Chihuahua is very picky. It was very frustrating to find a food that he would like and eat. Well my search is over, my picky chihuahua not only love Blue Buffalo Toy Breed Life Protection formula, but he eagerly eats it every time he is fed! And the kibble is the right size for his mouth. I give a big thank you to Blue Buffalo for making a product that is not only healthy, but chihuahua approved.

    My mixed terrier really likes this food. He took to it right away, and you can add warm water to make a gravy if you like.

  • Blue for small dogs

    By on

    Great size for a dog that weighs 7 pounds. Other foods say they are for small breeds but are still too large.

  • Great food!

    By on

    This is just perfect for my little toy poodle. The size of the morsels are small enough for her to eat especially since she is 18 years old and has had to have most of her teeth pulled. She is able to munch this down! Her much larger sisters love it too! Haha
