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.

Argus loves his new food

Argus had used Natures Select Coastal Catch ever since he was rescued about 3 years ago, since it is impossible to find 28# bags, I switched to Blue Buffalo and he seems to love it. Argus is a Greyhound and very picky, so I was excited when he happy with the switch.

Costly & Limited Selection

My main complaint is always the price. It is so difficult to buy quality for for my dog for Chewy's prices. On this particular order my first 3 choices of the Blue Wilderness line were not available. The fast delivery & the good condition of the packaging is always good.

Blue is Best

My boys seem to love it~ Duck recipe is by far their favorite, but it was out of stock- so we opted for Salmon. It was a good choice, they enjoy it as well (just not as much as duck)

Better than the other

I tried the chicken, then the red meat flavor of this dog food and my dog was unimpressed. However, she seems to really enjoy this flavor. It is made even better with the wet food by blue buffalo that has the vegetables in it. She luuuuuvs the wet food, won't go back to eating the regular wet food without the veggie chunks.

Wonderful for Coat

Sadie is 50 lb. blue ribbon shedder. BB Wilderness Large Breed Salmon Recipe has reduced the shedding of hair tremendously. She was on the regular BB Wilderness Salmon Recipe which helped but when I could not find it I switched to the Large Breed and discovered after two weeks I was not seeing piles of dog hair blowing across the floor. I have no idea why it helps I just know it does. She is family, so I feed her what I feel is the safest and best for her and as it turns out for me too.
