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 Senior Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 261.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food supplied with great service! We adopted our Corgi, Norman, from a shelter on November 20th. We got him on Blue as soon as we got him home. His gastritis was corrected within days. The little guy loves this food and I can tell feels much better. Chewy responded to our order with excellent service and great prices too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel confident we are giving our family dog the best in dog food. We have been Blue consumers for about 5 years now. We are pleased with how our dog likes the taste and feel we are offering the best nutrition for our senior lab. We just recently began ordering on line through Chewy and we're very pleased with the price and ease of the process. Looking forward to continued deliveries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small kibble but not small enough My 13 year old yorkie-chihuahua liked this at first but she gradually stopped eating it, had to be coaxed to eat and then wouldn't eat much of it. It is just a bit too big or hard for her to chew. She would pick the smaller softer bits out and leave the rest. And, it gave her very potent smelling gas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Lots of nutrients. My dogs love the taste. One dogs dry irritated skin and loss of hair is already responding to the improved diet and regrowing hair, and the other is acting like a one year old again. Both are about 10 years old. I am very pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for While the ingredients list of Blue looks look like it would be a wonderful product, my animals turn up their noses at it. I talked with a "professional" about this and was told that "Blue is VERY HARD to switch an animal to". Maybe if your pet is started out on Blue it would be better. Having said that, I would like to say that ordering from Chewy.com makes my life SOOOO much easier. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats. The dogs eat different foods because of their breed and size so I'm always going to the store to get pet food. Chewy not only ships for free, but they are about $5 cheaper per bag plus NO TAX!! Shipping is very fast and while I was expecting for them to just slap a shipping label on the bag and send it, the folks at Chewy.com actually put the bag of dog food into a box for shipping. WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN ??? OH, that reminds me....I need to order some dog food. BTW...I'm going back to Nutro Ultimate Senior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nourishing Senior Food for Dogs I hesitated to switch formulas for my two older Aussie Shepherds, but it was time. I gradually mixed the two formulas together for about one week, so that their systems could adjust slowly. They we so happy with the new food I wish that I would have changed it sooner-but I was afraid that I would be sacrificing taste! Nope. The dogs love it and I am satisfied with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our seniors rescue dogs love Blue Buffalo Senior!! The Roland Senior Dog Rescue Gang uses Blue Buffalo Senior for all our guys. We currently have 50 dogs at our rescue / sanctuary. As a non profit, the benefits form good quality food are essential to us.
