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.

  • Excellent For Dog With Sensitive Stomach

    By on

    We have two English Bulldogs, one 14 months old and one 13 months old. For over three months we have tried numerous adult dog foods that both could eat. One of our dogs has an extremely sensitive stomach. This dog food has solved all the problems. It took a couple of weeks for both dogs to get used to it, but now feeding time is again a joy. Both are thriving on the grain free and limited ingredients. Thank you Chewy for your fast delivery, fair prices, and wide selection. We will be a customer for years to come!

  • Great Food

    By on

    Blue makes great food for pets. The Basic line is great for pets with allergies it helps the kids with itching issues. Living on the street then in a high kill shelter my pet somehow had beautiful hair and skin. Six months later my dear pet looked awful with thinning coat and scratching all the time. The Blue Basics has really improved his looks but more importantly to me has made him stop scratching.

  • Best limited-ingredient dry food

    By on

    My St Bernard has food sensitivities so after the vet recommended I switch his food to one with a different protein, I bought this & haven't looked back! Chewy.com has the best price per pound compared to my local stores & when the box arrived all 4 of my dogs went nuts, just like the commercials! Chewy.com is also the most user-friendly site I've ever been on & is officially my #1 go-to for all my dogs needs. Thank you Chewy.com!!

  • Good replacement for Pinnacle

    By on

    My dogs had been eating Pinnacle Grain Free Turkey and Potato for years. It was discontinued and Blue Buffalo Grain Free Turkey and Potato seemed to be the closest I could find to the Pinnacle. My dogs love it, and there were no adverse effects to my dogs because of the diet change. They are happy and so therefore, I am happy too.

  • Great, Clean food!

    By on

    I have been using this food consistently for both my medium sized dogs for almost a year now. I worked in a pet shop growing up and we knew that you can tell if a dog is eating a good, clean dog food by their stool. My boys have regular solid BMs and they love the food! Scarf it down every time.

  • Dogs love it and cured gas problems!

    By on

    We have 2 black labs. Our newest had a terrible problem with gas. She could send the family running from a room!! We switched her to this food and she is so much better and her tummy doesn't gurgle all the time anymore either. Both our dogs love the taste.

  • Pieces a little large for my Schnauzers

    By on

    My two Mini-Schnauzers do not care for this feed. I know they have a little trouble eating it because the pieces are not real small, but more for a medium sized dog. They do not seem to care for the taste either, and have to be really hungry before they will eat.

  • She likes jt

    By on

    My dog seems to like it so far. Got it because she was licking her paw and scratching a lot. It's too soon to know if it's making a difference but she's not picking out nibbles and leaving them on the floor like her previous food. So that's a win!

  • Blue Basics

    By on

    Our dog has been having seizures periodically once every few months. We have recently tried switching his dog food to grain-free formula. Our dog is loving the Blue Basics!!! We ordered it thru chewy.com and it arrived quickly and our dog is loving it! Hasn't had a seizure, but we are still tracking and hopefully the grain-free good will help!
