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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog Food My dogs were going crazy scratching so the vet told me to try something else. So I picked Blue! We have tried other major brand names and they did not work. Now I have two very happy dogs who are not scratching!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I travel a lot, so it is nice that I don't have to worry if my dog has her favorite food. Another thing that I don't have to go out to buy in a hurry and then carry back home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No stinky gas! Our 9-month old black lab has eaten Blue Buffalo Fish and Sweet Potato since he joined our family about two months ago. The product was recommended by his veterinarian. His black coat is shiny and, though we know he passes gas, he doesn't clear a room. Though pricey, that benefit alone makes it worthwhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Blue Buffalo has great products. I thought for a while we were going to have to keep the German Sheppard outside. She made the whole house smell like a wet dog, hair was everywhere and she was continually scratching. Within 24 hours of starting Blue Buffalo food, it all changed. The odor was totally gone. The hair settled down and coat was smoother and shiny. Within 2 days the scratching had stopped and she was like a new dog. We will never use anything but Blue Buffalo again. Thanks so much. NF

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves Fish and Sweet Potato We have only fed our 11 year old Basset Hound the Fish and Sweet Potato (not the Brown Rice as listed). Coat is always shiny and never had an issue with digestion or him not wanting to eat it. The food smells like fish so I know there must be a good amount of fish in the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, fast service! My dog has many allergies and this product alleviates many of his symptoms by eliminating the threat of wheat and certain protein allergens, but he still loves the taste! Chewy delivered fast and was priced fairly. I will continue using their services. Excellent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lab/Dane mix My 8 year old dog who has the energy level of a puppy has always had a sensitive stomach. He did well on this food until the last couple of months. He started having loose stools which at first I contributed to him getting into cats food or kids feeding him something from plate. But once I do the routine with bland diet and return to his regular food which is mixed with merrick can problems returned. Just read about recall which was on the large bag of salmon and sweet potato and decided to switch to Fromm. Chewy was great as always stating recall did not affect their stock but refunded me for purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fur Baby Loves It! Before putting my baby on Blue he didn't get very excited to eat but once I switched him to this food he loves to eat! My dog is my baby so I want to feed him just as I would if I had a child. It's also a huge plus that it's good for him. On a side note the auto shipping is AWESOME!!!! I highly recommend this food and getting it delivered to your doorstep with the auto ship method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog(s) Love Blue Buffalo Great brand of dog food. I feed Blue Buffalo to my German Shepherd (Large Breed) and my Australian Shepherd. The Aussie loves their food. He has skin allergies and has to have a high quality food (no corn, wheat, soy) and Blue Buffalo is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience I was very impressed with the quickness in which I received my order. The dogs were very happy to try a new dog food, and they woofed every kernel before leaving their bowls. I will certainly continue to order this brand, and flavor of Blue Buffalo, again.
Date published: 2016-08-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought I'd take a chance... My 3 dogs enjoy Blue Buffalo, but they were getting tired of the chicken and the lamb flavors so I thought I'd change it up and mix in a little fish & sweet potato to see if they liked it. When I opened the bag, I was surprised by the fish smell that wafted out of the bag. I'm not a fish eater myself, so I wasn't sure how I felt about it at first, but when I mixed it with the Chicken and rice, my dogs ate every morsel from their bowls! So far, it seems like my dogs enjoy the fish flavor, so this was a gamble that really paid off :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oscar loves this flavor! Oscar, my 14lb Coton du Tulear, is thrilled to have tried this flavor. He devoured it right away. I like being able to stay with the Blue Buffalo name.
