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.

    Hydrolyzed dog food

    By on

    Previously, my dog was prescribed for Royal Canyn’s Hydrolyzed dog food that contains chicken. However, Blue baffalo’s hydrolyzef dog food with salmon works much better for my dog: no extra tear stains and his coat got softer.

    Worked for dog with digestion issues

    By on

    Ever since our Aussie pup came home she had bouts of loose stools and vomiting. Over the course of a year the Vet ran a battery of tests which were inconclusive. Finally she said our dog would always have digestion issues due to size of her liver. She was put on Royal Canin Hydrolized protein which is a soy based product. It worked well but I really wasn’t thrilled about the soy. When this food came out we gave it a try. Both my Aussies love it! We transitioned from the other brand over a month as not to upset our girls’ stomachs. They’ve been on it about 6 months. Their coats are so shiny and healthy, they love the food and Chewy delivers it right to the door.

    Contains Potato

    This food is supposed to be for dogs with protein allergies, but then contains potato, which is a huge allergen in some dogs.

    Just not sure

    By on

    My dog’s diet has been switched to this for possible food allergies. I’ve been mixing HF canned with HF dry since Ozzie, my dog, has never eaten strictly kibble. We don’t know yet if it is effective for the problem. Too soon to tell. Ozzie seems to like it, but I must confess he’s not very picky. After all, he ventures into the cats’ litter box for “snacks” so I wouldn’t base a decision on Ozzie’s palate!!

    My boxer loves this food

    By on

    I’ve heard that these hydrolyzed protein diets are unappetizing for dogs, but my boxer with allergies devours this! And he’s a picky eater, turning down a lot of other foods in the past.

    So far so good

    Our great dane was prescribed this food while we do a food allergy study. He LOVES this food and he has never been a real good eater. While he is also on some meds, his skin, coat, and feet already feel and look better.

    Great quality, dog not a fan

    By on

    This food is for a dog with IBD. She hated it and wouldn't eat it for days but finally caved. It has great ingredients for a prescription diet. Expensive but that's to be expected. She's eating now with no problem. So if your dog fusses over it just hold strong. They'll eat it eventually.
