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 Small Breed Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 293.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This formula has been my 6 Lb Maltese main diet for the last 5 years My small breed dog graduated from the puppy formula Blue Buffalo small breed to Life Protection adult at around 1-year old. Even though I supplement with another brand of dry kibble he always enjoys his Blue Buffalo. He is healthy and energetic and looks amazing! He has a very sensitive stomach and if I introduce other foods we seem to have problems. No stomach problems at all with Blue Buffalo Life Protection Small Breed. I believe I am feeding him the right food for his small size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Service and Price! 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs prefer other Probably a great food, but my little dogs prefer Health Extension Little Bites Dry Dog Food so I can't recommend it one way or another. My sister's dog loves it. But he isn't offered another type or brand. I will do a test with three bowls down and see which one empties first! Then I will update this review. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chloe loves your product! Chloe is a long haired Daschund with a very sharp sense of smell. Chloe's "pink" bags arrived she jumped around and barked until the box was opened. She slept next to her food that night. No better endorsement than that and Chewy delivered it on time. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value and quantity are great! Our dog loves Blue Buffalo brand. The price was cheaper than our local pet store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My girls are happy My two girls typically do not like dry dog food. A small bowl sits on the floor and they take a token piece every couple days and chew it in front of me to show me what good girls they are. But this food they are devouring! I put a bowl down and they eat all of it by the end of the day. I'm very impressed and feel good because it's healthy for them. Never thought I'd see the day when they would enjoy a dry food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user I grew up using Purina everything. I just got a new 1 yr old ShihTzu at Christmas and wanted to try something really healthier so I tried Blue Buffalo. Went to their website, did a questioner and bought my first bag. I've been really happy with the way my dog has responded to it. Even her itching has stopped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pet food is just right for our small dog. Our Cairn Terrier likes this food. The kibbles are small, and just right for him.
