HEALTHY DIGESTION: High-quality protein and natural sources of fiber help promote nutrient absorption and digestive health. The indoor hairball-control formula features a unique blend of cellulose and psyllium seed fibers to help reduce hairballs.

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

13 Customer Questions

I see someone asked about the source of the duck. Where are the other ingredients sourced from? Thank you.
Answer by ChewySep 15, 2020
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. 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. None of the ingredients are sourced from China.

The "true blue" promise for this product is "no chicken/poultry" by-product meals. Then I look at the ingredient list on the back and the first line contains "chicken meal"?
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 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.

How many cups worth of food are in the 11lb bag?
Answer by ChewyMay 15, 2018
There's approximately 8 cups of food in the 2 pound bag, 20 cups of food in the 5 pound bag, and 44 cups of food in the 11 pound bag.

Where is the duck sourced from?
Answer by ChewyMay 06, 2020
The duck used in Blue Buffalo formulas is sourced from the United States.

Duck only

My cat has allergies, she scratched so much she would have open wounds. My vet told me Duck is the only hypoallergenic food. Since I have been feeding her this dry food her itching has almost disappeared. It’s been about 2 years on only duck flavored food, dry and canned. This brand is the only one they seem to like, and priced the best.

My cats will avoid eating it

I was hoping to slowly switch them from purina pro plan to blue buffalo but they pick out and eat the purina pro plan kibble and leave the blue buffalo kibble in the bowl. They seem to starve themselves when the blue buffalo is left in the bowl. They are eating less kibble which makes me concerned.

They love it

We have 12 cats all rescues and they all love the Duck recipe Blue Buffalo cat food. I mixed the first feeding with the Chicken recipe Blue Buffalo we use. Our cats picked around to get to the Duck, so the next feeding was all Duck. They went nuts. I will mix 50%/50% from now on and see if they want to go all duck or not. Chewy is the best.

Great flavor

My cat really loves this cat food. The last one we tried (something about Love in the name) he didn’t like at all.

Both of my cats LOVE duck flavored foods!

Both of my cats love duck flavored anything and this stuff is grain free and pretty great! Although, one of my cats prefers his "NUM NUMS" over this stuff, but he'll eat it too. But *I* definitely like this stuff over the weight-control stuff I had them on before or the previous stuff by another brand because it seems to fill them both up, withOUT causing my overweight cat to actively gain extra weight anymore. I'm going to try some puzzle feeders for both the entertainment aspect and the controlled feeding aspect!

(delivery) Blue Buffalo Dry Cat Food

Chewy's and their products are great. The only problem we have is with the delivery. We clearly state the gate code and delivery instructions. Intermittently they fail to follow instructions rendering the package easy to damage or steal. I am frustrated by the delivery system!

It’s been hit or miss the last few bags

It’s been hit or miss the last few bags. One bag my cats would not touch. Now this last bag I have multiple cats vomiting. Farewell blue wilderness! It’s time for our family of 6 cats to switch brands.

New Blue Buffalo Duck No Good

The duck has been my cat’s favorite for years but with the last order I received he will only eat it in small amounts and spit out the remaining kibbles on the floor. At first I didn’t think too much of it until I found other customer reviews with similar if not identical feedback. Something is off, I will not be ordering the duck anymore.
