  • My Rotties love this and doing great on it!

    By on

    I have 2 large Rotties, 120 and 110 pounds respectively. They have each lost 15+ pounds and are so much more active and playful. The vet was thrilled that they had lost some weight as it makes it easier on their joints. Thank you for bringing this to my home, much easier on me too!

  • Real meat is the first ingredient without a bunch of fillers.

    By on

    I got this flavor because my dog is a senior dog and needs to loose some weight. He is not a big fan of beef or chicken. He does like the Turkey. He's only been eating it for a little more than a week. Maybe to soon to loose weight.

    I'm still not sure my overweight dog will loose weight on this food but at least he is eating it and digesting it well which has been a problem for years.

  • Best product for sensitive tummies

    By on

    Our mini schnauzer has tummy issues. BB Basics keeps his tummy happy. Our Border Collie mix eats the same food and has never had any issues. We've tried other brands but this is only one that keeps the babies happy and healthy.

  • My 14 yr old poodle is trimming down!

    By on

    So happy to find out that Blue Buffalo has a weight management kibble! Our girl had begun to put on a couple of pounds which aggravated her arthritis. She has a very sensitive stomach and had been on another Blue formula for years. She loves this food!!! Also Chewy.com delivers my orders in record time, which I really appreciate!! Thank you!
