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.

  • Senior dog food

    By on

    My dogs have truly enjoyed this food. I purchased this one specifically for my almost 10 year old German Shepherd who is truly struggling with her back hips. However, my 6 and 5 year old German Shepherd really like it. The only thing I don't like are the really tiny pieces mixed in. But they do eat all of it.

  • So far, so good!

    By on

    Vet reccommend switching to this from the BB Wilderness due to my dog's suspected pancreatitis. He's also a picky eater. So far, we have had no issues, and he seems to like it. Keeping my fingers crossed it stays this way!

  • Finicky eater

    By on

    My dog is picky, this is the only brand he likes. I tried other brands thinking they might be better, but he wouldn't eat it. I just mix the dry with a little wet food and there is no problem.

  • Good food; bad bag

    By on

    After 4 weeks, my senior dogs really enjoy the food and appear to be doing well on it. I intensely dislike that a 30 lb. bag of high quality dog food is not resealable, however, and will try other foods that have resealable bags for large quantities of food. Resealable bags are the norm, not the exception, and I was surprised Blue Buffalo undervalues the convenience of maintaining freshness through their packaging.

  • Solid, healthy kibble

    By on

    This is a product I prefer to feed my older dogs since the company is usually detail oriented and has some glusonamine/chrondrotin in it to help with aging bones and joints. The manufacturer tends to price it kind of steep and is stingy with coupons. It is wonderful that a firm such as chewy.com sells it more reasonably priced, making it easier for a limited income single pet parent of 2 to provide quality dog food.

  • Great Senior Food

    By on

    We have two "senior" beagles, and when I saw that some stores don't carry the senior version of Blue, I came to Chewy.com through a recommendation. GREAT service, and the pups are happy! :-)

  • Great Food - Difference in Senior Dog

    By on

    I tried Blue Senior food for my dog Mack, my 9 year old Staffie. I saw a difference in him quickly. Within a few days, he had more energy, and was more playful with his siblings. He was more lively and animated (his younger self re-emerged). After 2wks I saw a difference in his coat. His coat looks healthier and his fur is softer.
