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.

Questions & Answers

6 Customer Questions

What flavor is this food
Answer by ChewyApr 14, 2020
This BLUE Natural Veterinary Diet HF is made with hydrolyzed salmon.

Is this food made in the USA?
Answer by ChewyNov 11, 2022
This recipe is made in the USA. Many of Blue Buffalo's ingredients, such as most grains and meats, like chicken, beef and turkey come from the United States. Lamb and venison can be free range from the United States or New Zealand. Rabbit is sourced from Europe, and trout can come from the United States or Canada. Where possible Blue's suppliers are instructed to source their ingredients from the United States. Where the ingredients are not readily available in the Unites States, such as many vitamins and minerals, their suppliers will only work with reliable foreign companies, and subject all ingredients to rigorous quality testing.

Does this require a prescription?
Answer by ChewyNov 23, 2022
This recipe requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

what is the phosphorous level
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2022
This formula contains approximately 0.26% phosphorus on an as-fed basis (approximately 0.94% phosphorus on a dry matter basis).

Bad experience all around

So, my sick kitty is now on a veterinary diet. This brand was the only SOFT food I was able to find within his restrictions on chewy. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it in just a can so I had to buy an entire case for over $80!!!! I shouldn't have done it, but I was desperate for my kitty to have a mixture of hard and soft food. This food looks gross. It's almost grey in color. It's almost impossible to even mix it and when I was able to mix it, it was big clumps. He won't eat it and now I'm stuck with a case of it. I would think it was old and outdated but it isn't, it's just bad food. LEARN from my mistake--when trying new foods for your animals DONT ORDER if you can't buy it in small quantities. I should have gone to a pet store first to look for one can.

Blue Buffalo HP Cat Food - Jamon Hates It !

I am sure this prescription cat food is good for it's intended purposes. My reason was for possible thyroid issues/vomiting issues. I left this cat food down for him for 2 1/2 days and he did not touch it. Being an old cat, I did not want to stress him out any longer. I called Chewy and they were GREAT!! They said to donate it to a charity/rescue and they will credit my account. I was thrilled. I did find some other "tummy sensitive" cat food he likes. Jamon is the love of my life and I cannot imagine life without him. He is 12. Thank you Chewy.

Cat loves it

My cat has been on Royal Canin hydrolyzed dry food for a year for IBD and has been craving other flavors. She adores this this Blue Buffalo canned food, which I offer as a supplement to the Royal Canin. The texture is rather rubbery, but I mix it with a little water.

Cat will not eat the food

Not happy as I paid a lot of money for this food and the cat will not eat it. Can I send it back? I can not even donate it as it is a prescription. Wish I could have purchased just 2 cans to try not the entire case.

Cat with allergy

Tibby says this is bad stuff but the vet says at least a week trial before trying something different. He licks the fur off his legs and he ends up getting steroid shots. We're eliminating food as the cause and it's the trial and error method. Thank goodness there's a way to do it.

Great if you mash it

My cats did not want to eat this at first - the texture is hard and strange. I learned that if I put the food in a glass bowl, add water, and mash it, I can turn this into something my cats are willing to eat. This has been a great solution in my household because my cats are too bonded to not share food even though they have different dietary needs. Both love wet food and I notice I have a much easier time with the litter box when I am not limited to dry food, which is most hydrolyzed options. I Hope this comes back because it is a great solution if you are willing to work with it.

He likes it :-)

I was concerned having read reviews that it wasn't appetizing. He loves it! Yes, it smells stinky...but I haven't smelled a canned cat food that wasn't.

Blue buffalo hydrolyzed wet cat food

Because my cat is already on hydrolyzed dry food my vet recommended I also use this food for my cat. She likes it! It helps her because the food does not upset her stomach.

hyrdolized wet food

My cat absolutely loves this wet cat food. A change of pace from the dry food that she has had for 5 years.

Not what I expected

Neither cat wanted anything to do with this food. It's smells awful, looks worse. I realize for hydrolyzed protein there's not a lot of options. Still trying to figure out a solution for my cats tummy trouble.
