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.

  • Want a nice silky soft coat?

    By on

    Then this is the food to get! I normally use the chicken/rice but change it up every now and again. The fish really makes my dogs coats nice and shiny, silky and soft. Blue is already a great food, but it's really great when you can switch within the product line without issues. Blue by far is the best food out there!

  • SKIN ALLERGIES

    By on

    I started feeding this to my Golden Retriever about a month ago because he has skin allergies and also developed a fungal infection of his ears. I ended up taking him to my vet and he said this was an excellent choice of dog food for him. I had to put him on antibiotics and Prednisone and am hoping this dog food is helpful.....

  • Dog loves it!

    By on

    We noticed our dog was skipping his morning meals regularly. He had lost 4-5 lbs. We were getting worried, but the vet suspected that he just didn't like his food. So we switched to the fish/ brown rice flavor, and he gobbles it up first thing in the morning now. Service was fantastic. Delivery to your door of a 50lb. is awesome---no loading it from shelf to cart, to cashier, to car, etc. Makes it much easier to auto-order, once you know how long it takes your dog to finish a bag. This is one chore I don't miss doing.

  • Excellent ingredients sourced and made in CT

    By on

    Our dog loves this food. We got her from a rescue group who fed her a food with chicken by product as the first ingredient. Her coat was dull, she smelled bad, she was itching a lot and had terrible dandruff. She's been eating this for a week plus. Her coat is so shiny, she doesn't smell at all and no signs of dandruff. It's a huge improvement in only a diet change. Thank you Blue and thank you Chewy we have it on autofil every 5 weeks.

  • Great Product

    By on

    I love this dog food. I have a two year old French Bulldog and this sits well with his stomach. I have tried other foods, and this one seems to work the best. I of course consulted with my Vet before trying foods, and he approved this as well. I love Chewy.com and I will not buy from anywhere else!

  • My dogs love it!

    By on

    One of my dogs recently changed his mind on the life source bits that Blue Buffalo uses in some of their food. Out of nowhere he just started spitting his food all over the floor and eating everything but the bits. Our other dog didn't mind cleaning them up though! We switched to the fish & brown rice and now he eats it all!

  • Love it, even smelled like fish

    By on

    This was my first time buying blue Buffalo for my girls, and at first they were skeptical of it. But after about a week they were wiping it it. Not super thrilled about the price for a bag that isn't that big but, my girls are worth it

  • A clean bowl every time

    By on

    Our girl loves her fish and rice. But we used to get one that was made with salmon and sweet potatoes that we cannot find any longer. So sad.

  • Great Small Bites Food

    By on

    My male french bulldog would go up to three days without eating, and than he would gorge himself. Until I changed him over to this food. Now he eats everyday and we are going on our third bag. Great food!
