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 Helps with Dog's Allergies I got this food because I was feeding Taste of the Wild (various formulas) and my dog developed awful dandruff and a red rash. I started feeding Blue Buffalo Fish and Sweet Potato recipe, along with a salmon oil supplement, and her scratching has gone down significantly. She also LOVES the taste of Blue Buffalo. She's been on it before, but the chicken recipe. She was a little itchier on chicken, so I think she has an allergy to most foul/poultry and beef/bison. Although this formula is a little more expensive than the other ones (at least where I buy normally) it is definitely worth my dogs health and my sanity. I constantly worry if something is bothering my dog's coat. She only gets vegetables as treats now, as much as she wants the "good" stuff. :) There must be something in TOTW (although they have similar quality ingredients) that doesn't go over well with her. So if you have a dog with skin allergies or in need of some more Omega 3's and 6's, this is the stuff. February 14, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Great price and really fast and free shipping. Will use again. December 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's Gobbled Right Up! The minute I pour this into the bowl for our dog, she can't eat it quick enough! This is, I think, her favorite flavor! November 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog loves it! My golden LOVES his Blue Buffalo! Thanks for the speedy delivery! Should have set up auto delivery years ago! :) November 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product and 1st time dealing with chewy.com but was pleasantly happy with both the price and the delivery time September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great products great food great price great delivery polite experience September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dog food. I feed my 2 100+ lb mix breed dogs this brand and they love it! August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great service l have been feeding this dog food after a dog dermatologist recommended it. It smells so good, I think I can eat it myself. But the really great thing...is having it delivered to my door. No more driving to the store, lifting heavy bags of dog food, driving it home, and lifting the heavy bag again. Plus, it doesn't cost any more than if I bought it from the store. July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has been beneficial to the healthy diet for my pet. My pet had suffered with a pancreatic disorder. After his recovery, his wonderful vet had this food as a choice for a diet regiment for him. It has worked very well. August 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. June 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by one dog loves it! I've always trusted the Blue Buffalo brand, but finding a dog food that both dogs like is still a work in progress. August 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Research Based on my research, I decided that this was the best all around product to feed my dog. August 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super convenient same brands as store bought food We have only been using chewy for a little while now. All I can say is WOW. Why didn't I do this earlier. Super convenient fast delivery great prices. Auto delivery all the way August 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs have never been so healthy We started Blue several years and 5 dogs ago, and they stay in excellent health. It makes all the difference in the world for playfulness, energy and very little gastro probs (which are probably their own fault for eating bugs, grass, etc.). Whoever started selling the muck off the floor as food for animals should be baking in Hades. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is top quality and helps keep my Schnauzer within her healthful weight. If free mailing and price difference between Chewy and stores stay the same it is a wonderful offer and of course so convenient. I will use you again. July 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by dogs love this food We love the blue food for our dogs. They have done really well on it. July 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! Two of my doggie babies have skin issues. Now that we are feeding this they have disappeared. The one drawback is their breath stinks lol but the benefit outweighs that. July 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific Brand! Been using Blue Buffalo dry dog food for many years. Always satisfied! Never had any issues with my dogs eating it, or doing well on it. Glad to see a place that offers more than one or two flavors and the "small breed" option as well! June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue Buffalo order Everything was great! We ordered, and got a great deal on the price, and our shipment came the next day! All in good condition, and our two bouviers enjoyed helping us unpack it. Keep up the great work! June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great. The dog food was great, but I already knew that. I have bought it many times from other places. What I want to talk about is the service from Chewy. They shipped my order extremely quickly and they even did it for free. June 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Dog Food, exspecially dogs with Food Allergies This Salmon & Potatoe recipe dog food is a hit in my home. My dogs love this & one of my dogs has bad food allergies and this dog food has helped greatly. Great choice for dogs. Thank you Blue Buffalo for ur great healthy dog food, keep up the great work :) May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have used this product for years Service via Chewy.com was great. One email and the food was at the door within 2 days June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is helping with the dry coat on my dogs! I love it! I have 3 dogs. Al of them are 'rescued". The lab/boxer mix has real dry skin and seasonal allergies. We call him our "free" million dollar dog! We switched to Blue Buffalo, grain free, sweet potato and salmon. He still has seasonal allergies, but his skin is so much nicer. No white flaky skin when you brush him. Great product! May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Both dogs love this food. I have 2 dogs, both adopted from shelters. I have had them almost 8 years. One is almost 13 and one is almost 10. I was told by one shelter person when I asked about what to feed them that being shelter dogs they would eat almost anything. Naturally I was concerned about giving them quality food that would be good for their overall health. I chose Purina One, in various flavors and they are very healthy and happy. The vet always says they look good. But, there were lots of times that they would not eat all of the food, I feed them twice a day in modest quantities. Once I started with the Blue Buffalo they always clean the bowls. They really seem to like it and it actually looks to be very good food. I will buy it from now on. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product, love the delivery to my home! My two dogs love this food! June 9, 2016
