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

21 Customer Questions

Where is this product made? Does any source material come from China?
Answer by ChewyJul 31, 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.

I see a difference

My 12 yo needed a low phosphorus food because it is hard on kidneys. My vet did not want her on Rx food yet. I was feeding science diet 7+ but her poops were too soft. This food has 6% phosphorus and 6% fiber and it has firmed up her stool. Also her coat has become a much deeper shade of red. My other dog (shepherd)black coat is very shiny . I attribute this to the food. I also jut started salmon oil 5 days ago. Vet said good for kidneys.

Both my dogs hated this!!

My dogs tend to eat just about anything put in front of them, but neither one of them wanted anything to do with this food. :( It has a very strong smell compared to other foods. They would pick around it when I first introduced it with their current food, and now I can't even get them to eat their current food because they know the "new stuff" is in there, too. It might be good for dogs, but my crew is giving it a hard no.

My vet recommended a senior food for my 10 year old Collie and she has been doing great on Blue Senior. Since it is low in fat, I add coat supplements to her food and her coat is beautiful. She has energy and enjoys long walks every day. I have recommended it to many people and I enjoy the convenience of her food and meds delivered to the house.

I recommend!

Our almost 15 year old GSP has noticeably improved since being on this senior food. Hips, joints and walking much better. I also supplement with hip and joint CBD dog treats and he’s doing great!

My favorite food for my elder years....

Blue Buffalo Senior Chicken & Brown Rice is yummy and easy to digest. I'm a little dog so I eat 3 one third cup servings a day and am very healthy, my teeth are strong and I have a beautiful dachshund/beagle coat. I highly recommend this product.

Such a relief

My dog has lots of sensitive stomach issues. This has been a total success. She likes it, it is reasonably priced, her tummy tolerates it well. Happy!

Our dog loved it!!

Hi I’m Daisy and I love Blue! My parents are adding this as extra to my prescription dietary brand and it is keeping me full longer . I’m hoping I can eat it all the time as my only food soon! I have had no tummy trouble. I would recommend this food to any of my my dog friends . Oh, I tend to gain weight a little easier at my age and I seem to be staying trim, so no need to worry my fellow seniors . Eat Blue Buffalo and be happy!

Great Product with Incredible Service

We use Blue Buffalo for Senior dogs and mistakenly ordered regular food. Contacted Chewy and they refunded the cost of the regular food and just asked that it be donated to a shelter. This is awesome and we did donate to a local shelter.
