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.

Currently using same food, but the puppy version. Do I still need to blend food over a week period when changing to this?
Answer by PoppysMomJun 09, 2022
It is definitely a good idea! It because it is adult verses puppy, the nutritional needs are a little different. Transitioning will help their tummy adapt better to the new formula!

what is difference between Life Protection "small breed" and Life Protection "small bite"
Answer by ChewyApr 25, 2018
The Small Bite Recipe is for all size dogs and contains ideal “small bite” shaped food for dogs who prefer a smaller kibble. The Small Breed Recipe is formulated to fit the needs of an extra small, small, and toy breed dog.

Are the ingredients used in any of products from China?
Answer by ChewySep 12, 2018
None of the ingredients are sourced from China. 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.

Is this made in the USA?
Answer by ChewyApr 06, 2018
This product is made in the United States.

Love evertthing

Blue Buffalo is the only brand that we feed Bo. He also likes Blue wilderness small bites but that only comes in a 25 lb bag and that last 6 monrhs. Wish they would have smaller bags for toy and small breads. Since 2012 we have ordered food, toys, treats clothes and everything else for our fur baby and they have been most helpful to answer any questions I may have.. They have the best customer service of anyone O gave dealt with.

Dog does not like this food at all.

Blue is a good brand, I've used it in the past for several of my dogs so when Ella refused to eat it, I checked it out. It smelled like dog food, but maybe a bit off, so we switched her back to ProPlan and she ate like she was starved. I was going to donate the rest to our local animal shelter but then I had second thoughts, maybe there was something my human nose couldn't detect that her powerful little snout could. So the bag is still sitting in the pantry if someone there would like to check a small sample? Please let me know what to do.

Going for a better food.

We are in the process of changing over. So it is hard to tell if my dogs are going to like it. My son swears by Blue Buffalo, and he has 3 large dogs.

Great product very good price

Decided to order my dog food through Chewy and I'm glad I did. Couldn't find the small bite food anywhere else and saved money and time by having it shipped free.

HEALTHY for my dog

I worry about the opened bag attracting roaches so I put the food in 1/2 gallon and 1 gallon plastic jars with screw on lids. Ruby loves her food and I look at the contents, I’m satisfied it’s healthy for her.

Not the size pellet it should be, Blue Buffalo messed up

I have been buying this food for a while now for my 11 pound Yorkie. This is not a Chewy problem. This is a Blue Buffalo problem. So the pellet usually is a very small biscuit, which is why I buy it. I stock up on food so I will always have food for my dogs if times are hard, so I have probably had this bag a year. The pellet size looks more like a small rabbit pellet, about 3 times the length of all the food I bought before of this brand and type. I worked in a feed mill for Land O' Lakes for 16 years. The bigger the chunk or pellet, the faster you can push it through the pellet mill/die = more production. Or the pellet operator set the knives that cut off the pellet totally wrong. Anyway, my dog doesn't finish the bowl since I opened this bag, I throw half of it away. And I have two more bags that might be the same length. She just doesn't like the bigger pellet. Next time, I buy different food. Bye bye, Blue.

I can't keep the bowls full

I have 5 rescue dogs and they absolutely love the Blue Buffalo small bites. Every time I go by the dog bowls, I have to refill them.
