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.

Blue Buffalo Basics Turkey & Potato Recipe Senior Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Transition I switched from Halo dry dog food to Blue Buffalo Basics because I felt my dog was getting older and more sedentary so less calories but good ingredients were a number one priority. Usually we slowly work in a new food but we just ended Halo and began Blue Basics the next day. There were no issues with changes in stool and our baby gobbled up his new food. Two weeks later, he is still loving his new food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dogs Wouldn't Touch it German Shepherds pass the age of 2 or 3 need low protein and low fat ratio diet. Performance based food (any food close to a ratio of protein 30/15 fat) causes Pancreatic issues in German Shepherds (also caused by feeding venison or deer), yes, a very expensive lesson I've learned.... Along with a pure bred German Shepherd, we also have a purebred Alaskan Malamute who is rather picky. I introduced this with their feed and they wouldn't touch it. Then I gave it to them straight, they wouldn't touch it. They didn't eat for 4 days! They wouldn't touch it. Then tried the Natural Balance Reduced Calorie and no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it! Our 11 year old Schnauzer mix needs grain free everything. This is a change up she just seems to love and we love the glucosamine for her old joints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice switch. He gets bored My 14 year old lab likes this food. He was not eating his Natural Balance Limited Ingredient. I think he just got bored. Well, I mix this food in with it and he just tries to eat the Blue Buffalo and leaves Natural Balance. It will take him awhile to get bored of this one. I don't even have to add wet food, at least not yet, again till he gets bored.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect food for my dog! This food gave my little 12-year old rat terrier NEW LIFE! She runs around like a puppy now, and even pulls on the leash when we walk. Also she loves the taste and chews it easily, even with several missing teeth. Definitely recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so dry dog food I usually buy the senior kibble and this kibble is a little bigger. My dogs don't really like it that much, not sure if it's taste or size. They tolerate it. Won't buy this one again though we do use Blue Buffalo.
