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 Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 764.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shocked at What vet told me about Blue Buffalo I have been feeding my 4 Dogs Blue Buffalo Dry and Wet Food for a long time now. I took my Boxer to a New Vet the other day for an ear infection. Thinking I am feeding my Dogs and Cats the best product for them. She told me she used to feed her animals the same thing. Until they and her clients that fed them Blue Buffalo too all developed Crystals in their Urine. It had become quite a common occurrence at her practice. So now I am switching to another Dog Food Brand. I just wanted you to be aware of this. Because I was so blown away by this news. I hope this help you too! I certainly do to want my Babies to have this happen to them. Good Luck

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blue Buffalo Dog food purcahse Fantastic quality, FAST shipping, the only problem is the price is comparable to Pet Smart. I would continue ordering, but they put the FREE shipping just beyond the dog food, so you have to make an additional purchase. Then if you want the 20% discount they keep offering, you have to give them your credit card info. and agree to have an automatic shipment of your order each month. If I could order for a fair price, and not pay shipping, I would deal with Chewy.com every time I need dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Dog Food for Nine Years It took me six months to figure out which adult dog food to buy and after doing much research I ended up with choosing Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Adult Chicken & Brown Rice. That was over nine years ago and I haven't changed in all that time. The dog loves it and he has never had any skin or allergic reactions to it. This was my first order with Chewy. It arrived within two days, but the only issue was that one of the bags was torn open in the corner and a large portion of the food had emptied out into the shipping box and had to be thrown away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My one and only dog food choice One of my dogs suffers from severe allergies and this dog food is the only food that keeps him reaction free so I know it's way healthier than the brands you can buy at a standard grocery store. I've been using for years and will not stray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! I started feeding my five year old lab this brand a year ago. The difference in her activity level was noticeable almost immediately along with her skin and coat. She was eating less than with the other foods and her waste was definitely less. Big plus there! Not to mention she loves it!! I would definitely recommend it. Worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Golden's have no allergies or digestion problems. Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula has been part of my dog's diet for the past 4 years. Before I switched to Life Protection I used a dog food filled with corn and fat. My dog would constantly lick and chew her forearms until they would turn red and bleed. My dogs haven't shown any problems with Life Protection. My only complaint is the "Life Source Bits" don't always get mixed well with the other contents, so you can end up with a lot of them at the bottom of the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st timer I just discovered chewy.com. Best thing ever! I ordered on a Thursday afternoon and my order was on my door step on Friday. I will definitely order again as it was cheaper than me driving to the store, carrying around a 30 lb bag of food and then carrying it inside. Blue Buffalo - my dog has been on Blue every since she was a puppy. Wouldn't change it for the world. Great product.
