Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula was created for the health and well-being of dogs. All formulas start with real meat, whole grains, garden veggies and fruit, plus added LifeSource Bits, a precise blend of nutrients that have been enhanced with a Super 7 package of antioxidant-rich ingredients.

  • Glucosamine for joint health and mobility and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat
  • Vitamins, chelated minerals and antioxidants for immune system health

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.

  • Saved by Chewy!

    By on

    I was out of town and had a dog sitter for my dacshund Wynston when I received a text that we were almost out of food. I am usually really good about making sure that I have enough food on hand but of course this time I didn't. I had heard GREAT things about Chewy through friends that use it so I decided to give it a shot so my sitter didn't have to go shopping for Wynston. The website was easy to use and sure enough we received the food within two days. Thanks Chewy for your timely shipping and delivery!!!

    This is both our dog's favorite dog food! They have tried a few different ones but this is by far their favorite! I will say, my one doesn't prefer the small little bites in the food, but the other dog eats it instead. Great brand!

  • Blue Buffalo small breed food

    By on

    I like the ingredients. I don't like that the kibble is split into two different shapes. My dogs don't eat the kibble with the minerals/antioxidants since they can smell them.

    I think I have finally found the food that all three of my fur babies will eat. One is very picky and sometimes chooses not to eat, but not anymore! My only problem now is keeping them from trying to steal from each other!

    I have previously used fromme dog food until they no longer went thru chewy. with your suggestion of blue buffalo and giving me a 50% discount on next 3 orders of food, I ordered small breed adult chicken. I am going to also try the lamb small breed blue buffalo. Chewy is a very reputable company that stands behind every order!!! I am proud to be a chewy customer.
