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.

  • They love this!

    By on

    I have two kittens, and it has been a hassle trying to find a dry food that they both love and is healthy for them. I am so glad that I decided to try this. Now they get so excited when they hear the food being scooped into their bowls and run right to it. But the best part is their eyes are brighter, coats shinier, and they have more energy since I switched to this. I will definitely continue using this brand when they reach adulthood.

  • My kitten loves it!

    By on

    I've been buying Blue Buffalo since adopting a grown cat last January so when I adopted a new kitten in December I decided to try this formula. He loves it! It gives him plenty of energy and makes his coat very soft. It also lasts a long time, not much is needed to keep him full. Highly recommend this and all Blue Buffalo Wildernesses foods! Thanks for making them affordable Chewy!

  • Best kitten food period!

    By on

    I switched our kitten from kitten chow to this food about age 8 weeks...within a few weeks we started noticing such a BIG difference in his coat! He is pure black and his coat went from dull to a beautiful shiny black. He also seems more satisfied eating this food and doesn't need to eat as much. I feed our adult the grain free adult version of this food because of allergies to grain and our vet recently said that she would be a cat person if all cats had coats like his.

  • Cats are soooo healthy.

    By on

    It's unbelievable you can see how incredibly healthy both my kittens are. My little girl is 10 months old and my little baby boy is 6 months old their fur quality is shiny soft healthy looking. You can feel and see their muscles growing. I'm watching them get stronger as they jump and play. I attribute all of this to their dry food kitten by Blue Buffalo. I know it is more expensive...BUT, you get what you pay for, and plus THEY are so worth it.

  • Bowl always empty

    By on

    My kittens eats this but also my elderly cat it's easy for him to digest and he gets the added nutrition he needs. They let me know when the bowl is empty. They get their food and settle in for a hearty nap before getting up to play

  • Great product.

    By on

    My kitten and older cat are eating this food but it doesn't seem to be the kitten's favorite. It's a good quality food so I always have a bowl of it out. Maybe she'll develop a taste for it eventually.

  • Kitty hates life source bits

    By on

    My kitten looooooves this food when mixed with the complement Blue Wilderness kitten wet food but one thing I've noticed is that he's being a brat and picking out the "life source bits" out of his food. These are the bits that are darker than the rest of the kibble and packed with all those vitamins and antioxidants. He doesn't get them all but theres definitely something different about them for Monet to spit a few (2 or 3) back out every mealtime. Must be the taste of vitamins? Either way I'm glad they're including "fruits and veggies" for my kid to eat :)

  • Best dry food

    By on

    Our kitten always prefers wet food (she gets both), but she likes this a lot. We can leave it out during the day and it's good for her teeth.
