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.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    We have 2 dogs a 6 yr old Lab and a 1 yr old German Shepherd both of them really like their new food they've been eating for about 4 weeks now. The best and biggest change we see in the Lab is that he has so much more energy now and his coat is silky soft and his dander has gone away. It's really great to see him act like he's young again. Out of all the food we have bought the GS seems to like Blue the best. She's a picky eater that's what lead us to BLUE in the first place. It's worth the price I'd say for the results we've seen so far we're very pleased. No other food comes close to us in our opinion.

  • picky beagle

    By on

    We tried this food for the first time last month. There are two different pieces of dog food in this bag: One a light brown triangle and one a little dark brown ball. My beagle takes a bite, drops it on the floor, picks out the light brown triangles and leaves the dark brown balls on the floor. By the way, stepping on these dark brown balls hursts worse than stepping on a lego!!

  • Great food

    By on

    I mix blue in with my other dry food, holistic select, since I like getting the large breed formula bit I love the added benefits you get from blue. Since adding blue my pups coats and shinier and softer. I also use blue as a stand alone training treat as they are the perfect size. My boy gets so excited to train. Highly recommend blue.

  • Just the right change

    By on

    I have 3 pups. One is a German Shepherd. Each Shepherd I’ve had has allergy problems. It had gotten so bad that she had bald spots from licking/chewing. After switching to Blue Buffalo within a week she stopped. Now it’s been the about three weeks, the patches are starting to fill in. As a matter of fact, the whole gang likes it, even my little one who would only eat soft food. We are now on auto delivery. The delivery was beyond fast! Very impressive.

  • Fantastic!

    By on

    Changed my 5 year old Jack Russell to Blue Buffalo and he has stopped scratching and chewing on his feet. We were told it could have been caused by the artificial coloring in the old brand of dog food. After two weeks on Blue Buffalo the chewing and scratching was totally stopped and no more dosing with Benadryl daily. Chewy is so much more economical and the customer service is off the chart! I won't change back to buying locally again. Having a 30# bag of food delivered to your door and not having to load in cart, unload at checkout, load in car and then have to carry it in the house from the car with a bad shoulder! Life is good thanks to Chewy!!

  • Finicky Eater Loves It

    By on

    I recently adopted a rescue Pit Mix who was severely underweight due to having kennel cough and not wanting to eat. After putting weight back on her by feeding her eggs and puppy kibble 3 times a day, I began looking for a permanent dry dog food. We originally went with Purina One Adult SmartBlend from a local store and she began rapidly losing all the weight I worked so hard to put back on her. After TONS of research, I decided on this particular product due to it's nutritional content, ingredients and the fact that it's geared towards "active" dogs. Since I made the switch, she has maintained a healthy weight despite being a very energetic and playful dog.

    I love the prices where I used to pay $60, getting a coupon here and there really helps me save money, always have food for my dog, and I can always add a toy for her at a greater price. Your company is a blessing and I’ll definitely be a frequent buyer!

  • Buzz loves Blue Buffalo

    By on

    Two weeks after switching to Blue I noticed Buzzes cost seemed shinier & his long time quarter sized patch of hair that would always fall started growing back & he hasn’t had any allergies ever since. I’m very happy with Blue & all the different flavors they have to choose from & he wet food as well. I’ve tried numerous dog foods some that were supposed to be great for his breed (Pitbull)but this is by far the best. I’ve had many dog owners switch as well & all are happy. Thanks Blue & happy holidays from Buzz

  • hole in the bag- hope still fresh

    By on

    My dog loves this food and it's so convenient to auto order new bags every month. However it Came with a hole in the bag and beaten up box. Other products had damage as well but it's cheaper than in store so I'll take the lose this once and hope it doesn't happen again.

  • My dogs say : Delish !

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    My dogs have been eating Blue Buffalo since puppyhood, so this food is a staple in our home. My lab mix is super picky about what flavor of Blue she'll eat, so she prefers the chicken and lamb flavors over any other. My Weim will eat anything Blue, so I try to keep her interested by changing it up every so often for her. It's always anything good idea to change the type of protein that dogs are fed every few months anyway. I love that this food does not contain any bone ash, as well as the fact that it has a lot of fruits and vegetables options included in it's formula. This provides top quality food to our dogs, and that's important to us...and them !
