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.

    Cats likes the food

    By on

    When my vet suggested urinary food I was certainly less than thrilled. I had reviewed several prescription options and honestly none are what I would choose if I had the choice of any available food. I will say Blue Buffalo seems to be considerably better than Royal C or Hills (Hills has corn and my guy is allergic to corn and Royal C has meat by-products) ... my concerns aside ... my cat LOVES it and will ask for dry over other quality wet brands now. I am ordering the wet WU (because I believe all cats need more wet food than dry by far) but not holding out much hope as he normally will not eat pate' anything ... wish they made it in a "bits" version.

    A day without cat puke is like a day without sunshine. We have been using another urinary S/O brand for years and waking up to piles of partially digested "presents." We haven't been gifted since we added this food to the mix.

    Didn’t help enough..

    By on

    I had high hopes for this food but I guess since it’s a weight control as well it doesn’t target the urinary issue enough, at least for my cat. Just had to buy a new Rx food at the clinic as her issues have actually gotten worse.

    Prescription food that is natural and wholesome, unlike vet's brand.

    By on

    Doctor put cat on Science Diets S/D for kidney issues but there is nothing wholesome or natural about that product AND it packs on the weight. Not to mention, my cat turned up his little black nose at it - loves the Blue Buffalo food and I feel better knowing its reasonably natural. I serve a mix of dry and wet because my cat doesn't drink enough water.

    The ONLY urinary food my cat will eat.

    By on

    My cat has had several complete blockages in his life. He is generally not choosy about food, but for some reason, he refuses to eat all the other urinary foods. We tried them all. Science Diet, royal canin, purina, wysong, etc. His bouts of blockage seem to be brought on by stress, so I don't want to stress him by giving him food he won't eat. I found this one after his last blockage. I was so relieved that he loves this! If your cat has a problem with crystals, it is better to feed him soft food, but, of course, my cat doesn't like soft food. My vet researched this food and said it won't break up existing crystals, but should prevent them from forming.

    So far so good.

    I switch to this food since my cat has had urinary crystals in the past and has been on Royal Canin SO which seems to upset his stomach and cause constipation. Hoping the BB is better but it has only been 2 weeks.
