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.

    My cat is a very picky eater but loves this cat food. It was nice that my vet recommended the food and gave me a free sample for my cat to try first.

    My cat loves this food!

    My Midnight loves this and cannot get enough of it. She has IBS plus kidney disease so she gets two cans of specific prescription wet food but this is a perfect little snack to hold her over in between meals. She licks her bowl clean. Highly recommend.

    Working Wonders

    By on

    My cat has GI issues and will have explosive diarrhea (not pleasant). Have had her on another brand's vet line for GI trouble plus prednisolone and her poo was better but never solid. Discussed with my vet and decided to give this a try. Within 2 weeks, her poo is solid and normal! I like that it doesn't have the corn, wheat and soy that other products contain.

    prescription required

    My cat has been placed on GI formula food and I have been trying to find one which has larger pieces since she seems to prefer them. She seems to eat this okay, but if there is any other larger pieces of food around she will eat them first.
