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.

Just what the doctor ordered

About six years ago my older kitties (they were 9yo at the time) were becoming overweight. Their doctor had a sit-down meeting with me, and she told me I needed to change their diet by increasing the percentage of protein in their dry food. Looking at all the choices I selected blue wilderness (85% protein). Each kitty gets about a tablespoon of the salmon along with a tablespoon of chicken for their first dry food feeding. They get this dry food about 2 hours after the morning wet food. I'm fortunately in the position where I can schedule feedings. But if I had to feed and leave them during the day, I would try to proportion the food, so that it is gone or almost gone be the time I get home. At night feed more chicken and some other variety such as science diet. Feed amount so that it is gone by bedtime or close to it is best.

We had to switch to another grain-free option because the previous brand we were using was rabbit, which proved to be too rich for our sensitive stomach sufferers and was causing runny bottoms. This version is not only apparently delicious, but we saw an almost immediate result from the new food.

small bites, big love

My cats both really have a preference for this I think due to the smaller kibble size. I supplement with wet food but the dry is their main. I’d been feeding them another high end grain free dry food but wound up grabbing a bag of this on the road and made the switch. I love Chewy’s auto shipping!

My input on Chewy

I have started buying this food for the many feral kittens and cats in my neighborhood. I bought an auto feeder and a shelter I hope they will use in the winter. I just wish the food would have stayed the price I payed for the first bag. I will probably have to move up the reorder as there are so many. I wanted them to have a quality food since they are feral. Wish Chewy had coupons. I understand and do appriciate Chewy.

Blue Buffalo Salmon recipe- dry cat food

I thought my cats would like this but all 3 turned up their noses and walked away from their bowls. I don't know if it's the size of the kibble or the smell. No one is talking...My dog LOVES her Blue Buffalo.

Neh - my 2 year old cat did not like it.

My 2 year old loves pate Fancy Feast and Catnip Temptation treats, but does NOT enjoy Blue Wilderness. He DOES like Purina Beyond Salmon flavor, so that's what I'll be buying him from now on.

Cats Used to Like

I have ordered this on more than one occasion during the past several years, without issue. However both cats stopped eating this (it was a new bag; I checked the expiration and also that I had cat food and not dog food). After placing the food in their bowls for several days, I discarded the entire bag assuming there must be something wrong with it. Perhaps it was dog food that inadvertently got mixed in as cat food. Otherwise I never had any issues with this particular food. Chewy is always reliable with great customer service!

I think I may have gotten a bad bag

Like a previous recent reviewer, my cats (2 indoor, 1 outdoor) gobbled up their Wilderness Salmon dry cat food readily. However, I think I got a bad bag from Chewy this time around, as none of my cats will take even one bite. They just smell it and walk away.

Cats love it

This is a staple of my cats diet, and I would give it 5 stars if the 11 lb bag had a zip closure to keep it fresh.

Healthier Pet

My cat Crackers really likes the taste and eats it with no problem. There is no vomiting from stomach sensitivity, or over eating as if he’s starving. What he eats is being used by his body fully, so he feels less hungry all day. A great benefit is that his long, fluffy coat is silkier and smoother, than before I started him on Blue Buffalo. It shines and is easier to comb through to fight matting and excessive hairball worffing. This is a great food, reasonably priced, and the variety of flavors helps keep him enjoying his kibble time. Small pieces for my old guy’s teeth is another benefit, as well. Highly recommended.
