Description

Help your sensitive dog get the nutrition she needs and the taste she loves with Blue Buffalo’s HF Hydrolyzed for Food Intolerance Dog Food. Some dogs 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 dogs 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 dog’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 canines with food sensitivities.
  • A wholesome and natural veterinary diet that offers dogs 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.

    This is a game changer!!

    By Arrowmatherapy on Mar 15, 2021

    With every other prescription food on the market having horrible ingredients I was not willing to use , thank goodness I stumbled upon this one. My little French bulldog has been sick for four months and it became a fight for your life sickness that resulted in complete food intolerance. She was skin and bones couldn’t hold anything down and her body didn’t want to absorb any nutrition and needed this hydrolyzed protein. It became the game changer that turned the corner for her in a positive manner. She loves the taste of both the kibble and the canned and I am so appreciative that blue buffalo makes this blend!!

    Good Product

    By Monica on Apr 3, 2021

    This food works well for my Westie dog who, at 14, developed skin issues for the first time in her life. I recently began using this food -- hydrolyzed protein -- to help determine whether or not she had a protein allergy. It turns out that she is allergic to chicken! There is a strong fishy smell, because, after all it is fish!

    Stinky Salmon My dog Loves

    By MinnieMoo on Jan 9, 2021

    My dog has been on Hydrolyzed Dog food for a couple of years. I"ve been feeding her mostly Purina Hydrolyzed Dry dog food with the occasional can hydrolyzed chicken. If I just feed her the dry food her stools are like hard rock pebbles. By feeding her the wet dog food it helps to soften her stools. I decided to try Blue Buffalo Salmon for a change of flavor for her and she loves it. Her stools are even better. I'm on the fence to order more because of the strong fish smell. Doesn't help with her bad breath. For now I am going back to the can chicken along with the Missing Link to see if that will make her stools softer. As for the food not being to the top of the can it's probably measured My dog has been on Hydrolyzed Dog food for a couple of years.

    GOOD SUBSTITUTE

    By CAROL on Mar 2, 2021

    Couldn't get BB Alligator and the vet suggested the HF and my dog likes it. No allergy problems, which means no vet bills. I like that!

    Untrustworthy

    By JCM22 on Nov 30, 2020

    Blue Buffalo seems untrustworthy. I'm not one to overrreact to dog food reviews but something about BB just seems hinkey. I'll stick with hills or royal canin or another established company backed by veterinary nutritionists. BB seems like a boutique company with no credibility trying to jump on the bandwagon.

    Our dog LOVES Blue Buffalo HF

    By BoogiesMom on Apr 2, 2020

    I recently found out from our vet that our dog had food allergies. Besides other allergy interventions, I was also advised to change his diet to Blue Buffalo HF. I was relieved to find that he LOVED the flavor of the food. Thank you, Blue Buffalo.

    My dog loves it!

    By Mary on Jul 16, 2019

    My dog loves this dog food. It is very expensive however and when we figure out what his allergies are he will move on to something else, but in the meantime he is very happy eating this.
