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

14 Customer Questions

Does this come in a smaller bag?
Answer by ChewyFeb 23, 2018
The large breed formula is only available in a 30 pound bag at this time.

Does this come in any other flavor?
Answer by ChewyNov 16, 2017
While Blue Buffalo doesn't offer Large Breed-specific Senior recipes other than this Chicken recipe, there are other Senior-specific flavor options on Blue Buffalo's Wilderness Red Meat and Blue Buffalo Basics lines.

Are the all the ingredients produced in U.S.A.?
Answer by ChewyAug 21, 2020
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.

what age should you start feeding senior food?
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2019
The age for when a senior diet like this is appropriate will vary depending on your dog's activity level. Around the age of 6 or 7 you may start to notice changes in eating, energy, or body weight that signifies your dog is in his senior years. You can always check with your vet to confirm for your specific dog.

He likes it!

Recently transitioned our 8 yo golden mix to the low cal senior diet and he never skipped a beat. Hank lost 1 1/2 lbs in 2 wks. We are feeding him the same amount each day and his activity level has been the same so it has to be the food. What ever it is we are getting the results we want and he continues to be a happy pup!

Great dog food

My dog loves this. The morsels are small enough he can eat them and crunchy enough to be good for his teeth and gums. He is 17 and it is hard to find a food he likes and is able to eat. I bought it because it is supposed to help his joints and hips but he has only been on it for a week and is also on supplements so it is too early to rate it for that but he can eat it and loves it, that means everything to me.

Just what he needed

This was just what he needed and he really liked it. Unfortunately, he only had 5 or 6 meals before he passed. I'm going to find another senior that could use the remainder.

Chewy is the best!

We have used Chewy for several years and the service is great. Our senior Golden Retriever did very well on this food for several years. Unfortunately, at age 15 (quite good for a Golden) she passed away. We had, the week before, purchase a new bag of this food that had not been opened. When asking Chewy if we could return it Chewy gave us a full refund and requested that we donate the food, which we will.

chewy review

Products were excellent as expected and timely in delivery. My only complaint is that one of the bags of dog food had broken open and spilled everywhere. The box itself was completely intact, so it didn't appear to be a shipping issue.

Found green kibble. Will not get Blue Buffalo again. We will stick with Purina Pro Plan.

Mastiff/Rhodesian Mix Thoughts

My dog didn't really care too much for this food. He didn't ever finish his bowl and would wait till he was really hungry to eat the rest. Going to try another flavor.

Not for jowly pups

My dog likes it but there are tiny, round pieces that fall out of her mouth. They are all over my house and roll away when I try to sweep them up. Not for jowly dogs.

Sammy loves this food. I didn’t even have to transition him to it. He is 14 yrs old. So glad we switched
