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.

Kitty not Crazy about it

My kittY has been eating the RC prescription wet food venison for years. They’ve pretty much stopped producing it so I’ve spent the last 3 months trying to find prescription wet food for a finicky cat with IBDS. She liked this at first (it’s how they always do) and now she’s seems to be losing interest slowly. I hope it’s temporary. Thank goodness for Chewy’s return policy. It has been a nightmare trying to find speciality food for the last 2 years.

This stuff must be REALLY icky

The vet put our orange boy on a strict hydrolized diet for a lengthy period of time (6 months minimum), so we've tried all the hydrolized foods we can find. Our guy loves his web food, and there are only two canned foods available right now—this one and Hill's z/d. He didn't care much for the Hill's, giving it a lick or three, but not really eating it. He wouldn't even consider eating this one. Not at all. Tried several times. The last time I offered him this, I put a little of this and little of the Hill's in the same bowl with space between them. He ate all of the Hill's and none of this. That said a lot! LOL We'll be donating this.

Cats won’t eat!

I’m currently dealing with a cat with serious constipation problems who is on the dry kibble with hydrolized protein. But the dry food has no moisture compared to canned. While I was concerned about spending so much money on food so many reviewers said their cats wouldn’t eat, I’m desperate to find something for my one cat who can’t eat regular protein without it causing serious itching/over grooming, which results in hairballs and possibly the cause of the severe constipation. But, unfortunately, neither of my cats will eat this food, even mashing and mixing with water (and the dry kibble) as people recommended. I used part of one can and will throw the rest out. No point donating what most cats won’t eat to the local shelter!

Expensive with odd consistency but my cat will eat it.

My cat has developed food allergies, so I've had to switch her to a hydrolyzed diet for now. This food has a dense, rubbery consistency. At first she wasn't enthusiastic and wasn't finishing her 1/2 half can serving. However, once I chopped it up into very small pieces and stirred in about 3 teaspoons of warm water it had a consistency more like Blue Wilderness minced food in gravy. She now cleans her bowl. I took off a star for the price, and the extra effort I have to take processing the food. I can't imagine why the manufacturer can't do something similar before they can it.

$$$ And Requires Work

Super dense. Requires a bit of water and reworking to make it edible. The blender and water did a great job but the smell was beyond special. The cat eats it but it's a bit of work.

Yucky dry- me no likely

The food in this can is super dry and I always have to mix it with something else and at that he still hardly eats it. I’ll be donating the rest.

Smells Awful but Cats Love it

My 11 year old cat has lymphoma and needs to be on hydrolyzed diet. I feed all 3 of my cats the special diet to avoid any food fights. I have tried many brands of hydrolyzed. I bought this one because the others were out of stock. I am so grossed out by the smell when i open the can, but my cats seem to get ignited by the smell and start meowing until I put it down. This is the only food that they absolutely lick the dishes clean and there are no leftovers.

Our cat loves it

One of our cat has been on a hydrolyzed diet for several years since that is the only way to keep her IBS under control and keep her from losing even more weight due to vomiting. When we gave this food to her because the other hydrolyzed wet food option has been out of stock for several months now, she loved it! We had to introduce it to her very slowly, in very small portions to make sure her digesive system would get used to it, since she just gobbled up whatever we gave her immediately. Usually, it takes her all day/night to eat her food, but with this food, she eats it all as soon as we give it to her. Note that while she used to be a very picky eater in the past, she now gets the same food every day, she may just be excited to taste something different. The food has a pretty strong smell, but all we care about is that she tolerates it well and she loves it, at least for now.

Looks like rubber

This stuff was so dry, it looked like rubber. My cat who is not really a picky eater ate half a can and wouldn't touch it anymore

Great for Food Intolerance

My 14-year old cat, Kitty-Kitty, has been vomiting a couple of times a week for quite a while. I have been buying over-the-counter grain-free food for a long time to no avail. The vet suspects my cat is sensitive to some ingredient in her food. Blue Buffalo HF (Hydrolyzed for Food Intolerance) wet food has been a blessing. She hardly vomits at all now. As for dry food, she eats Blue Buffalo NP (Novel-Protein) and likes it a lot. >^._.^<
