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.

  • I love the purity!

    By on

    I am more than happy to find a food for my puppy that has limited pure ingredients that i can trust. After years of being a dog owner and having raised many dogs for their whole lives and seeing my last girl go out with lymphoma I want to make sure that this puppy has a better food choice that will keep her healthy and strong for her whole life.

  • Puppy Loves It!

    By on

    I'm sure my Mini Aussie puppy would love most food I put in front of her as she devours anything. However, after suspecting that Merrick was upsetting her belly (as well as my 5 yr old Aussie) I decided to switch her to this. I have had absolutely no problems with her bowel movements since and they also don't stink!! She seems to love it too. I will likely switch my older Aussie over to the adult food to give him a try because he has had a sensitive stomach for 2 years and is very picky.

  • Perfect for my pup with a sensitive tummy.

    By on

    I had my pup on Wellness Complete Health Puppy food and it was to rich for him. He was having up to 8 stools in a day that were very soft and loose at times. He had been on antibiotics and probiotics, and started on the Science Diet I/D Digestive Care for a few weeks. That food is very expensive and not geared toward a puppies caloric intake needs so I researched and found this food on the top of the list for puppies with sensitive tummies. I have had him on it for 2 weeks and he is perfect now. It took a few days for his stool to become normal and formed even with the slow transition of mixing the food in increments together until he was completely switched. I started my auto ship today.

If you are worried about the cost. Many people do not realize when they are comparing prices you need to look at the amount of food you will be feeding your puppy on a daily basis as they grow. For example for my puppy on this food 41-60 lbs. I will feed up to 3 1/2- 4 cups per day, on another food recommended for sensitive stomachs, I would feed up to 5 1/4 cups per day. This food is worth it for my baby! :) … more

  • Puppy's Choice

    By on

    Bought this food to limit ingredients in our puppy's food, and he chose this over Blue Freedom. Unfortunately, we found out that he's allergic to all poultry. This is a high quality food.
