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

26 Customer Questions


Where are all of the ingredients sourced from and where is this food made
Answer by ChewyNov 19, 2019
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 Unites 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.

How many cups are in the 30-lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2018
There is approximately 60 cups of food in the 15 pound bag and there is approximately 120 cups of food in the 30 pound bag.

I feed my puppy the Life Protection Formula Chicken and Brown Rice for puppies. I would like to switch her to this one for large breed puppies (she's German Shepherd/lab mix) so it's bigger kibble. Are they same thing, only different in size, or would I need to transition her from one to the other?
Answer by ChewyAug 16, 2018
It's recommended to transition her food. Start by mixing 25% of the new food with your puppy's old food, and gradually increase the proportion of the new food over the next 14 days.

How come this contains Garlic? Isn't Garlic is really bad for dogs?
Answer by ChewyNov 26, 2019
When used in small amounts, garlic can help support the immune system and liver. It helps the cardiovascular system prevent blood clots, and reduces cholesterol/fat build up in the blood and heart. It also aides in the fight against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and increases the rate of killing off parasites. Garlic also helps increase the palatability of products.

Chewy Is The Best!

We love Chewy. The prices, convenience, options, delivery. I could go on and on. We lost our two precious dogs within a year. At one time, we were down to having one cat. We are now a two cat/one dog family. And Chewy is our go to place for the majority of all of our babies’ needs.

makes a pretty girl

My pup absolutely loves it it’s the only thing she’s eaten and eats it all up. Her coat is beautiful and shiny and doesn’t shed like she used to. Her brother is on a cheaper food and the difference is crazy he has a very matte coat and their body shape is so different she looks like she’s filling out healthy and in all the right places and he looks like he has a lil beer belly overall i’ll keep her on this food for as long as it keeps up like this

He loves it!!

We're still transitioning over from IAMS, and i think he likes this better. I've used Blue Wilderness with my previous dog his whole life, and thought I'd give this a try with my new pup. So far so good. :)

Wish I could Split Stars!

We have 2 dogs, one loved it, the other despised it, he took a bite after sniffing it for a long while, then almost comically spit it out, Such a shame because our girl loves it!

Indi approved...Third bag so far!

I appreciate Blue Buffalo's holistic approach, so I decided to give it a good go. Glad I did, because Indi loves it! Although I feed him another brand's soft (roll shaped) food 2x a day, he heats this in between, and loves it. Glad that's the case, because it's something I feel good about feeding.

dog doesn't like it

I had to mix this with other dry dog food to get her to eat it. Also shared it with an older dog just to get it all eaten up.

Warby approves!

My pup started originally on Wellness core and would not eat. I switched to this and he ate it right up.

The dog likes it

The dog likes it. I am not too sure about it using garlic though. I didn't notice it on the ingredients list when I bought it. I'll just be using it sporadically for treats for my picky eater though, so it shouldn't be an issue.

She likes it

I was feeding my Bull Mastif pup another brand and it made her body odor really bad plus she was not excited about the taste. This brand has her smelling much better and she seems to like the taste much better. I don't know if it is as healthy as the other brand but she eats a lot of chow and the price is pretty good. When she gets tired of this I will need to switch again. Chewey has the best price on this brand and even beats Wlly worlds price.
