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.

    It's working so far and she choices to eat it too.

    By on

    Although I do not totally understand Hydrolyzed food - it appears to be helping my cat Molly. Molly occasionally gets a bad skin rash and looses hair in that area but she remained healthy - this has been going on all of her life but also clears up with long periods of clear skin. I believe she has an allergy to chicken and chicken products. This was the only skin and coat veterinary diet that did not have chicken as an ingredient. Molly's choice is this food so I had no trouble introducing her to it within a 14 day transition. If her skin remains clear and the recipe doesn't change we will stick with this food.

    He’s Addicted

    By on

    My cat has never liked any type of seafood. He has woken me up multiple times literally tearing and dragging the bag trying to get more food. Saying he likes it is an understatement. I had to hide the bag in a cabinet out of his reach. He has IBD and he’s been on this about 3 weeks.

    My cats were getting bored of the royal canin HP diet so I switched to this one. They love it and no allergy issues with the salmon. Only bummer is you can’t buy a big bag of this food.

    Slight tear in bag

    By on

    Love having it delivered to my door-this time when I received my bag of cat food it had a slight tear in it and alittle leaked out. Could be because it was packed with a 25lb. box of kitty litter. Great prices too!

    Not for my boy

    By on

    First two days he gobbled it up. Limited portions as it is new to him. Day three he threw up and even though it's in a separate dish he won't touch it. I may keep it a bit longer and see if he warms to it, but even my other chow hound cat will not eat it. I had high hopes for this food due to ratings, however I will have to search again for another food of this kind

    So thankful for this food

    By on

    My shelter Kittie had loose stools from the moment I brought him home. He would have what we call "explosive diarrhea". It would just come out without notice, 7-8 times a day. I Tried steroids, antibiotics, other meds and nothing worked. Vet put him on royal canine vet food, I read the ingredients and it was all garbage cheap food. Tried it anyway for three months, didn't really help. Then I saw that blue Buffalo had the same formula but much much better ingredients, no by products, salmon as first ingredient, Been on it two months, what a difference, he has maybe one small accident every few days. I am so thankful, my kitty feels so much better and his shiny coat came back. Thank you blue Buffalo My shelter Kittie had loose stools from the moment I brought him home.

    pricing is good

    By on

    so glad chewy gives you a discount for this food it is so expensive everywhere I looked. but I did receive a bill from my vet for approving this food which was a surprise. seemed kind of silly for a quick approval. anyway, my cat eats it with no problem. I don't know if this is helping her because her issues improved before I started her on it quite frankly I don't think it was a food issue. well except she had these odd little bumps on her skin which have vanished so perhaps it was a food allergy, I just don't know for sure but saying that I am happy to pay the price for this food because all the foods you find in the store are dreadful so she will stay on this for life as she does love it so glad chewy gives you a discount for this food it is so expensive everywhere I looked. but I did receive a bill from my vet for approving this food which was a surprise. seemed kind of silly for a quick approval. anyway, my cat eats it with no problem.
