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.

    She loves it!

    By on

    Loves the food and it makes her stools firmer which was a problem. Too early to tell if she is losing weight. Good to see they make it for urinary and wt loss. She’s been on the urinary for a long time.

    Check the Date of Expiry

    By on

    I bought this food 4 times, and 2 of them the food came with less of two months before the date of expiry. Please, be careful with your dogs, the smell of the food and color is totally different. I had to talk with chewy customer service and wait for a new bag. My dog likes it more or less, but it is not working for Weight management. My dog is 4.5 pounds and this food has the range of proportion wide, like from 1 to 15 pounds dogs. I feed my dog with the minimum but she is gained weight.

    Has helped my dog

    By on

    My rescue bulldog had issues with intestinal motility and chronic uti's due to a birth defect and this food was recommended to me by the rescue group. Since I started feeding it, he has not had issues with constipation and has not had a uti for over 3 years. He is also on a daily cranberry supplement but I truly believe this food has helped with the uti's. The rescue group uses it for all their dogs with urinary tract infections as well. And, he really likes the food too.

    It really works!

    By on

    My dog went from having a ton of urinary crystals to next to nothing after barely 2 weeks of this diet. It definitely helps with urinary care. You do not need to get the urinary dog food brands the vets try to peddle. This brand has much better ingredients and is effective in preventing bladder stones.

    My dog loves this food!

    By on

    My dog has had two bladder stone surgeries, and has been on a Rx urinary dog food for around 5 years now. They have worked great to increase thirst and prevent stones, but I’ve always felt terrible feeding it to her, due to the terrible ingredients. I decided enough is enough. I found that Blue Buffalo makes a urinary food, and thought wow! I used to feed her B.B. when she was a puppy (she’s now 12). I also was pleased with the weight management aspect becuase she’s a senior and slightly over weight due to age.

Since doing so, she can’t wait to eat her breakfast and dinner! She loves the food, except for the Black Vitamin bits. She picks those out, but she also did that as a puppy with the other B.B. food. She sometimes will resort to eating those bits in-between meals. I’m so happy if found this food, and happier to be feeding my dog food with great ingredients. Thanks B.B. and Chewy!! I 100% recommend. … more

    She Loves it!

    By on

    Our Pug/Beagle mix has been eating the Blue Buffalo Weight Management & Urinary care dog food for a few weeks now, & she loves it! So far so good, & we're hoping this will keep her from having to have another kidney stone surgery! Also, she needs to take a few pounds off, so we were so happy to find a dog food that takes care of both her problems. Chewy had it delivered in 2 days, so that was great! Thanks Chewy!
