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 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 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 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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs LOVE this food! We have a Golden Retriever (who would eat the tires off a bus if you let her), and a very finicky Boston Terrier. We had changed their food a while ago just trying to find something healthier that would help with weight management and dry skin. Because the little guy is so picky I was leary to switch again, but so glad I did!! BB fish and sweet potato was an instant hit, and we are already seeing a healthy improvement in both dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this It seems that dog food formulas are always changing. We've been through many different brands - from high end to low end - and this is the best! It's easy on sensitive stomachs, and the fish really helped with dry skin and dullness issues. Great food, reasonably priced, and worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for our dog Blue does not have chicken by products(I guess skin, legs, becks, and guts), and it does not give our dog gas as so many brands we have tried. Plus, he likes it. To give a little variety we do add things he likes, loves, like pasta sauce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Girls love Blue Buffalo. I started my dogs on Fish and Sweet potato about a 9 months ago. They really like it. I changed from chicken and brown rice to hopefuly stop my Boarder Collies hot spots. We shall see if it helped in July.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My three dalmatians love the mix We treat the three to a dry mix of Blue fish and Blue chicken twice a day and they sure "woof" it down. We are very pleased with their healthy coats and exuberance.

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 dogs love it and it's good for them! My dogs have been eating this dog food for many years and I am very pleased with it. My dogs certainly enjoy it and they are active and healthy. I ordered it from Chewy for the first time and was very pleased with my experience. The delivery was fast and convenient. I previously had been buying the product at a local petfood store, and I observed that the product I received from Chewy seemed much fresher. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have looked forward to getting this food back into my dogs diets since S.O. wanted to change it because of cost of the food I do not remember our dogs shedding or cleaning as much when they used to eat this food. Unfortunately changed d/t the cost. I could not stand the constant licking they were doing or the increased shedding so have returned. Will just have to cut back somewhere else I guess. The fish smell is definitely strong, but they do much better on this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great healthy mix for the family friends I have 2 miniature dachshunds father and son, and they've eaten blue buffalo exclusively and they are 9 and 10 years old, it's the only food we will buy for our buddies, they are quite sensitive dogs when it comes just about anything, especially their diet, and they didn't do good with chicken, or grain based products so this food was the perfect medium for them. would recommend this for any breed of dogs big or small, puppy or adult, blue is just the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality dog food with quality ingredients. We feed our 5 dogs this food and not only do they love it - it has done wonders for their coats. They have been on this food for 18 months, having switched from Nutro, and the condition in the coats and digestive health was immediately evident.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food Blue products are especially good for dogs with some allergy problems. We go for the fish based products because they are easier on dogs with a lot of airborne allergies. While a bit expensive the auto ship function on Chewy.com is great in order to save a bit off of local retail for the same product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT! Huck & Minor are happy healthy dogs, We wanted the best food for their puppy years, so we bought Blue Buffalo. They are now one year old and we just can't give them anything else. We are Chewy fans for life. On top of the best choices, the antleers last for months, which is a great chew option (rather than shoes) delievery is to the door and reliable. One Happy Family

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Buffalo is a trusted Food for my Collies I raise Rough Collies and move between a couple of foods to feed them a high quality food that they thrive on. Blue Buffalo is one of the food choices and they love it. I know they are getting their nutritional needs met by giving it to them. I highly recommend this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOG APPROVED Smells pretty fishy, but my dogs devour it. Less fillers = less doggy pick up in the yard. Can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dog food! I have an 7 month old Rottweiler puppy. This is my 4th rotti, and, the first that is a finicky eater. He has a super sensitive tummy. We tried several different very high quality "holistic" foods, such as canine caviar. Even tried goats milk, which is supposed to help their tummies. He didn't really like any of them but, worst of all, they all gave him the runs. He would have at least 1-2 very soft to runny stools a day. Felt so bad for him. He'd be out in the yard trying to go and would just look miserable, straining over and over. After starting him on the salmon and potato basic, his stools were solid from the beginning. He's now been on it for a month and has had no issues what so ever. Great product!
