About Blue Buffalo

The Blue Buffalo story started with a beloved Airedale named Blue, whose family wanted to feed him the best pet food possible. After searching for high-quality options, they decided to create their own food using natural ingredients, real meat first and only the highest standards. That promise still drives them to seek out the healthiest ways to feed and nurture pets, and it lives on every time you fill your pet’s bowl with BLUE.

Questions & Answers

Whats the difference between this blue wilderness and the life protection formula by blue buffalo?
Answer by ChewyMar 05, 2019
All Blue Life Protection formulas are made with the finest natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals. They feature the exclusive antioxidant-rich LifeSource Bits for your dog’s overall health and well-being. Formulated for all breed sizes and life stages, BLUE Life Protection Formula contains no chicken (or poultry) by-product meals, no corn, wheat or soy and nothing artificial. Blue Wilderness formulas are inspired by the diet of wolves, true omnivores whose endurance is legendary. Blue Wilderness is a protein-rich, grain-free food that contains more of the delicious meat dogs love.

where is the food made from?
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2018
All Blue Buffalo products are manufactured in the United States. Many of their 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 United States, such as many vitamins and minerals, their suppliers will only work with reliable foreign companies, and subject all ingredients to rigorous quality testing. None of the ingredients are sourced from China.

Are the meats in this formula hormone-free?
Answer by ChewyApr 24, 2018
The meats used in Blue Buffalo products do not contain any antibiotics or added hormones.

According to your answer to question of byproducts on this formula, dated 3/3/20 you answered All Blue Buffalo foods are formulated without the use of chicken or poultry by-product meals." However, if you read the label the second ingredient is clearly "chicken meal". Could you please explain???
Answer by ChewySep 01, 2020
Blue Buffalo does not use chicken/poultry by-product meals in their formulas. By-products are the identified meat, plus some of the internal organs. An example of this would be chicken by-products, which would consist of chicken meat, plus some of the internal organs. Meal is the dry rendered product from a combination of clean chicken flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from whole carcasses of chicken, exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails. The Meal is used as a source of high protein.

Double shipping

I have in the past loved getting scheduled shippments but i have twice now found that if you change anything in you order it is probably going to be wrong such as 5 times the amount you wanted or double shipments of the same item. I have therefore canceled scheduled shipments and will order only if i need something, that is if I continue order at all.

super happy!!

Super happy and excited that both my fur babies loved it. I’m even happier that my pit is able to eat it without getting sick. He has a very sensitive tummy specially to grain and it’s hard to find a grain free food that they both like it’s affordable and healthy for them. Can’t wait to for my fur babies to try their other flavors!
