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 Life Protection Formula Healthy Weight Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 361.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy transition from one Blue Buffalo formula to Healthy Weight formula We had been feeding our Labrador the adult Life Protection, Brown Rice and Chicken for over two years. Due to less activity we needed to manage his weight more closely. Our vet was pleased with his health and we always received comments on his coat and vitality so I knew that I wanted to stay with the brand. I followed the instructions for introducing the new formula and our Lab never noticed a difference. I'm thankful Blue Buffalo offers so many options for owners and their animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for large and medium dogs! We have a 12 year old Retriever mix and a 1 1/2 yr old Corgi and Jack Russell Terrier...Both were rescued in horrible shape.. Our Veterinarian recommended this Blue Buffalo Healthy Weight dry dog food...They have been on this food since early August and both are thriving and have calm g.i. tracts now, shiny healthy coats and bright eyes! We plan to keep both on this food for their lives! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes Great! Less Filling! Our Bischon was looking more like a white stuffed sausage. She's not a picky eater anyway, but she's turned her nose up at other diet foods, so I wasn't sure if she'd eat this or not. Turns out she LOVES this dry food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been feeding this to our dogs for years. Quick delivery and prices were a little lower than where I usually shop, Pet Supermarket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lulu loves it and never fails to remind us of her dinner time has arrived. Our vet insisted our rescue puppy was overweight and needed to be put on a diet when she grew from a skinny 37 Lb little girl into an 80 Lb. small horse. She was obviously a very large dog but also muscular with a little fat. A DNA analysis determined she was an Akita/American Staffordshire mix which explained her growth but we put her on the Blue Bufffalo low fat diet food and she woofed it down happily. She is now a trim, very muscular 85 Lbs. and has become a neighborhood favorite to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great dog food with just the right amount of fat/protein to keep my boy lean. I came here from Amazon and they can't be trusted when it comes to Blue or any other dog food for that matter.. My bags would be received ripped and kibble strewn about the packaging and would force me to throw away not to mention counterfeit foods have been received by others. My Chewy experience has been great so far. Compared the old food with the new and every is perfect. Great product and will continue to buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs like it-quality ingedients-happy HuMom The pups both like this food. I wish it were pea free because I have one pup that is sensitive to peas. Given it is ingredient 7, I gave it a try and it is not bothering her that I am aware of. It was very easy to transition to this food- no digestive issues. I remember Blue when the bits were really blue and looked like dried blue berries-I wish this were still the case today. I'd prefer smaller batches, but that is just being way picky, hence the 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I LOVE Blue Buffalo products because it has LOCAL sourced and simple ingredients that are healthy for pets. My dogs of all ages and sizes have never had any problems with this food...If you are feeding something other or cheaper this CAN be a bit "richer" on their system so like any food switch over slowly to avoid any diarrhea or nausea. I have noticed dogs skin/coats and energy really improve on Blue Buffalo.
