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.

  • My old little lady loves this food

    By on

    I've been feeding this to my 12 year old Pomeranian who has hypoglycemia and we use to keep Sprite on hand for attacks. Before we started using this food she would have an attack about once a month. She's had one attack since starting this food, but it was caused by her eating my daughters dogs food when she was staying with us for a couple of weeks. She has done so great on this food it's really balanced for a small dog not just smaller kibble size, the added glucosamine is an added bonus for her aches in her old joints. She's been much more active since we started her on this and no longer have to give her medication for her arthritis.

  • Finally! The search is over!

    By on

    It seems we've been on this quest forever, to find a healthy, dry dog food that our two girls will eat. Since we can't afford to waste money, I've had to add things to their dry kibbles, such as salt-free chicken broth and chicken, ground turkey, or liver, just to get them to finish the bag so we can try a different kind. That, in itself, was worrisome as I was afraid the added bribes would spoil them against plain dry kibbles of any brand. I had heard that the Blue Buffalo brand was good, but it was too expensive for us. Then, when our grocer stopped carrying their favorite treat, I turned to Chewy.com. There I found a better, affordable price for Blue Buffalo, so decided to give it a try. They It seems we've been on this quest forever, to find a healthy, dry dog food that our two girls will eat.

  • Great tasting food my little dogs love

    By on

    I have 3 chihuahuas that absolutely love this dog food. They have been on it for about 2 years now. The size of the kibble is excellent for toy breeds, as 2 of my chis are missing most of their teeth, but have no problems eating the kibble. I highly recommend this dog food.

  • Switched from Acana

    By on

    Fed our Norwich Terrier Acana since the breeder did, but having fed previous dogs Blue Buffalo decided to switch to it. Quite a bit more cost effective and think it is a good alternative. Switched a few weeks ago with no problem; of course mixed in some Blue Buffalo with the Acana to facilitate the transition.

  • Fabulous Service and Price!

    By on

    I LOVE Blue Buffalo Dog Food! I have been buying it for many years and I think that is why my dogs have lived to be ripe old ages and have done so well. I used to have to make a trip to the Pet Store but now with Chewy I can order online and have it delivered to my door for free! What a great find for me. I'm totally satisfied and will be buying my food and pets needs from you from now on. Thank you. Jill Hoffmann

  • Quality food for our little princesses

    By on

    We switched to Blue Buffalo small breed after our large basset hound died and two of our other dogs switched to Hill's Prescription heart diet. We used to feed the whole pack The same kibble, which we thought was a healthy, economical choice, but now we're focusing more on special needs.
