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.

  • they compare only lower priced dry dog food

    By on

    I fed my dogs Blue and they refused to eat the "added antioxidants" . They all left them in the bowl and my dogs are GSD chow hounds.So I can't see feeding a food that they won't consume all of it. I don't think Blue is fair in their comparisons of other dog food. They only compare dog foods made by big companies that don't always have the ingredients that are similar to Blue.I have tried all brands of dog food and my dogs have done well on other foods..It all depends on the dog but for my 3 Blue was not the answer.

  • Fromm to Blue

    By on

    thanks for your awesome assistance in leaving the Fromm products forever. I have used Fromm puppy to adult. No more. I greatly enjoy the convenience of ordering products from Chewy. Incredible customer service to provide customers 50 off while they try new products to replace Fromm. I hope you can pass this on to whom it may concern at Fromm. I will surely pass it on to all my friends and family.

    Oddly enough, we first decided to move our dogs to Blue Buffalo food and treats when our 7 year old daughter, animal lover, told us about seeing a chewy.com commercial and all the benefits of chewy. She also went and looked online for videos about Blue Buffalo and told us the benefits of it as well. Our dogs LOVE Blue Buffalo. We love that they aren't just getting full from fillers, but nutritious foods!

  • My puppies are spoiled!

    By on

    This food definitely has amazing ingredients and smells way better than my last bag :) However, the search for the perfect food for them continues... I believe they are just so spoiled with treats that I know they would rather eat a bowl full of treats. In no way am I saying this brand is bad, its amazing! My pups just have an acquired taste *paw pinky up*

    My dogs loved this food. They picked around their regular food to get to this food as I transitioned them and now will not eat their normal food as I transitioned them back. I cannot afford this food for my dogs, but I do recommend it if you only have a few dogs to feed. I have a hodge-podge rescue 6 pack. :)

  • This is a great product for dogs with food issues!

    By on

    I have two dogs that have dogs that have had issues/allergies to certain dog foods. I have tried cheap and expensive alike. This has been the only one that they both will eat (devour) and not have any gastrointenstinal issues. Price is reasonable. I use it as a supplement to the Blue wet canned dog food, too.

  • Blue is Best!!

    By on

    My dogs absolutely love this food. They gobble it up when it meal time and are often looking for more. It keeps them healthy and lean and the emaciated dog I am fostering has put on so much healthy weight. I am so happy with this food. Blue buffalo truly is best!! Will never change now

    By on

    Thank you for not only this healthy dog food that our amazing rescue dog loves, we also really appreciate the quick delivery! I always have to order a couple dollars more for free delivery, but that's OK with me - and Murphy! Thank you, Chewy!

  • Great Food

    By on

    My dog loves this food and it is keeping her much healthier. We switched from a lower grade dog food because she was gaining weight. Since she has been eating Blue Buffalo she is getting leaner and has more energy to play. The biggest difference is her appetite. She used to always act like she was starving at meal time and now she eats only what she wants and leaves the rest for later in the day.

  • Happy dogs

    By on

    When we could no longer get the brand of dog food we used, we tried another brand which the dogs refused to eat. We next tried Blue Buffalo and both the dogs gobble it up and once again look forward to mealtime.
