Description

Help your sensitive cat get the nutrition she needs and the taste she loves with Blue Buffalo’s HF Hydrolyzed for Food Intolerance Cat Food. Some cats negatively react to common proteins, which can lead to issues like skin irritation and digestion problems. This Blue Buffalo recipe is specially formulated to help manage those issues and minimize reactions. It’s crafted with hydrolyzed salmon—a digestible protein source and provides cats with healthy omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and flaxseed to promote healthy skin and a lustrous coat. Plus, it’s grain-free and rich in antioxidants to support a healthy immune system.

Key Benefits
  • Formulated to help minimize negative reactions to food with hydrolyzed salmon—a readily digestible source of protein.
  • Fish oil and flaxseed provide healthy sources of omega-3 fatty acids to support your cat’s skin and coat health.
  • Crafted with vitamins and antioxidants, plus blueberries and cranberries to support healthy immunity.
  • Grain-free recipe made without corn, wheat or soy for cats with food sensitivities.
  • A wholesome and natural veterinary diet that offers cats the nutrition they need and the taste they crave.

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.

  • FINALLY!!!

    By on

    My furbaby Samantha was diagnosed with IBD in February. Her vet recommended a hydrolyzed diet. She has been doing great on Blue HF dry. Sam has been a Blue Buffalo kitty since she was a kitten, but she has always had canned AND dry. I was SO excited to see the canned hydrolyzed and Sam LOVES it!

  • Kitties wouldn't touch it

    By on

    I give it two stars because it arrived well, and there was nothing obviously wrong with the food. None of my cats would touch it. We tried slowly introducing it to the two cats who need hydrolyzed foods. They avoided it at all costs. I even tried giving it to our cat who eats everything. She wouldn't touch it either. Cats be picky is all I can say. Too bad because it's so expensive and you have to buy a whole crate of it just to try.

  • You're Lucky If Your Cat Likes This Food

    By on

    My cat who loves wet food hates this food. I feel terrible because he already needs a limited ingredient diet and loves to eat, but just looks at this and walks away. He tried it once and then won't eat it again. It's kind of depressing to watch, I really wanted him to like it and was hoping it would help with his food sensitivities but if he won't eat it...

  • Blue Buffalo canned hydrolyed protein food

    By on

    Nothing bad to say about the food, but unfortunately my cat does not like it. He will not eat it by itself. I think some of the issue may be due to the texture of the food, it is very "sticky" as several similar brands of this same type of food are. Maybe try making another flavor to see if that is is? Thanks.
