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.

    There are many products out there, but they are not necessary the best for kittens and puppies. Many have artificial ingredients that meet the daily nutritional requirement of diet need for them but it doesn't mean they are getting the healthiest daily nutritional requirement. With BLUE B. (Blue happens to be our kitten's name too) I now she is getting the best natural and healthiest daily nutrients and her joviality, playful character at 10 weeks old demonstrates it. She started on BLUE B. at 5 weeks old.

  • My cat's preference food

    By on

    I was given another food to feed when I acquired this 9-month old cat from the shelter. He ate it because he was accustomed to it but when I got him a bag of Blue Buffalo Kitten Grain-Free Chicken Recipe he was eager to eat. I feed him the canned Chicken/Turkey recipe twice a day and keep this available to him for between meals. He votes "thumbs up" on both!

  • Is fishy smelling.

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I ran out of Wellness CORE kitten so I picked this up at the big chain store. This kibble smells fishy and makes her poop smell (fishy) compared to the Wellness CORE kitten. I won't be using this food again. To me, if the food is high quality other features that are important include not being smelly out of bag and out of cat (poop).

  • Healthy for Kittens

    By on

    I was previously feeding my kitten and cat the Iams kitten chow, but after realizing how many unhealthy and unnecessary ingredients they put in it, I decided to switch to Blue. They eat it up and I feel good knowing that they aren't eating junk anymore. Highly recommend and will continue to feed when my kitten is an adult.

  • good stuff

    By on

    My kitten and her young mommy-kitty share their crunchies, so they're both getting Blue kitten dry food. They both love it, finish every morsel! I chose it because I compared ingredients and protein content from several higher-end food (but not the really expensive stuff) and saw that this line of Blue Buffalo has more actual meat and less of the corn meal and starches that appear in the first 3 ingredients. I think a very young kitten might need this softened a bit in water, but my 3 month old had no problem.

    Our Bengal kitten likes the variety of adding dry food to his partially eaten Blue Buffalo wet food. He thinks it is like a treat to have the extra crunch!
