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.

    My pooch suffers from IBS, has had it since he was a puppy, now 5. However, as a result of an increased level of activity on walks, larger home and stairs, the low fat diet wet food we'd been giving him wasn't keeping up with the augmented amount of calories being burned. There had been severe weight loss - from 21 to 15 lbs, in a medium-small Lhaso Apso, over the course of 18 months. Upon looking at the make up of low fat wet food. I noticed it was made up of 80% water, which was fine, however, in order to boost his weight, I would need to incorporate a more protein-rich diet kibble, which is when my groomer suggested Blue Buffalo. So far so good, knock on wood, I fold the wet food in My pooch suffers from IBS, has had it since he was a puppy, now 5.

  • Delicious!

    By on

    I'll admit, when my Mom told me the Vet said I was "overweight" (so rude!) and that we had to change my foodies, I kinda freaked out. Then this Blue Buffalo stuff came in my Chewy box one day and I'll never go back to whatever Mom was feeding me before! My Mom said this stuff is perfect for my seafood allergies and to maintain my girlish figure. I say it tastes super yum! Double paws up from me!

  • Good food!

    By on

    Hi have 2 dogs... both of them love BB food. This is good because I do have older dogs who can be a bit of couch potatoes. It's a high quality dog food and I'm saving about 10 bucks a bag and of course my time by using Chewy. Life just got better!

  • Great product but size of kibble different from store

    By on

    The food was shipped to my door quickly and easily and was in a good price range. The only problem I had was the kibble size was smaller than what I would usually buy at the store and my dogs had a bit of a problem adjusting to the size change. Otherwise it is great and I would definitely recommend.

  • loves it but....

    By on

    Our little Cocker is a very picky eater but she loves Blues Life protection Healthy Weight Adult Chicken & brown rice recipe dog food...... except the little blue bits. We keep a bowl of dry food out for her all the time and she will grab a mouthful once in a while take it to the rug drop it and eat a piece at a time but always leaves the blue buts. Dinner time is at 5:00 and I mix a handful of dry and quarter of a can of stew then she eats every piece.

  • Maybe ordering again

    By on

    The bag of dog food had slits cut all over, therefore when we opened the chewy box, dog food was everywhere. We ended up having to store the messed up bag of food in a trash bag! Not ideal. My dog isn't eating the way he used to, maybe freshness of the food, since it was opened (and I don't know for how long). Debating on ordering online again??? Not unhappy with the brand of dog food, just with the way Chewy had it packaged and shipped.

  • Great value at a great price

    By on

    I have always bought this food at my local pet store. But I got a flyer from Chewy.com and decided to try them. I compared prices from the local pet store and chewy.com and chewy.com was much cheaper. I can have it delivered to my front door and it just has to be moved once into the house. 30 pounds of dog food is not easy to move several times. It is the same great quality and the pieces of dog food are even bigger and at a much cheaper price. I will use chewy.com again.
