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.

  • Worth Every Penny!

    By on

    I have always been an advocate for "you get what you pay for". There is a reason Blue Buffalo is more expensive - because it is better for your dog and they will love it! My dog has had GI issues since day 1 and I originally had them on Wellness, another great brand, but they were still having diarrhea on occasion. They also started getting sick of the taste. Now they are producing healthy stools and love every bite of their food!

  • High quality

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have a 1 year old mountain cur mix who's 50lbs. She was originally on a grocery store brand dog food and was shedding a lot, coat was dull, she scratched and licked all the time. I knew it was from the poor quality ingredients so I made the jump to blue buffalo , She has been on this for a little while now and her shedding is MINIMAL and she no longer scratches or licks herself . She's full of energy and her coat is very shiny. She also eats far less than the grocery store food. If you feed them well , in the long run you will have less health issues which means less trips to the vet!

  • Love this!

    By on

    This is the only food my dog will eat! I have a 95 lb American Bulldog/Boxer mix. He was a rescue from another state and contracted hookworm at only 4 months old. After a brat diet for weeks, it was difficult to get him to eat. This product was the winner!! Best service ever with chewy.com!

  • We LOVE it

    By on

    I ordered this for my Great Dane puppy who was growing so fast that the vet recommended switching him off puppy food to adult dog food at 3 months old. My dog had some eating issues. My vet recommended feeding him 1 3/4 cups three times a day and to set feeding times. I had tried setting feeding times since I got him at 8 weeks old but I could never establish it. He wouldn't eat when I put his food down and after a couple days of struggling to get him to eat anything I gave up. I would feed him whenever his dish was empty (no more than 3 times a day but he never ate that much). Feeding him whenever the dish was empty was my best option for him, he ate when he wanted to and he would let me know I ordered this for my Great Dane puppy who was growing so fast that the vet recommended switching him off puppy food to adult dog food at 3 months old. My dog had some eating issues. My vet recommended feeding him 1 3/4 cups three times a day and to set feeding times.

Feeding him whenever the dish was empty was my best option for him, he ate when he wanted to and he would let me know when the dish was empty. I've been trying to establish the feeding times again but it just seemed like he really didn't prefer the dog food I was giving him. Well his chewy order came today and he LOVED this dog food. He had his head in the bag before I could even get the cup out to feed him. He ate his whole morning dish and he seemed to enjoy it. We will be trying the established food times today now and hopefully this is a good step. I was skeptical to order this food because of the reviews from some about their dogs not liking it because of his problems with the other food but I'm very happy I ordered and that he loves it. My vet recommended this food or the purina pro plan but I compared the ingredients to purina pro on bluebuffalo.com and decided on this! Very happy I did. … more

  • My Chocolate "Cannon Ball" Labrador Loves It

    By on

    My 3 year old uber-active Chocolate Labrador Retriever had been using another premium large breed pet food, but we recently switched to Blue Buffalo. He appears quite happy to eat every bit of it - he had been lackadaisical about his prior feed. After a couple of days of his digestive tract getting used to it, his stools are now normal. His energy level is still quite high, and he is his usual exuberant self.

  • Good food but those small bits

    By on

    I was looking to change my 1 year old pup to Blue Buffalo and I was very excited to see that it was so much cheaper through Chewy than retail stores in my area. However, its been a little over 3 months and my dog really dislikes this food. The little Life Bits are actually what she dislikes the most. So after 3 months of picking up those little bits that she spits outeverywhere, I have switched her over to Taste Of The Wild. She is much happier now.

  • Good food and great service

    By on

    My Malmutes do not like dry food but when I went to the "Blue" group they eat it. I feel that I am giving them really good food. My Highbred's coat is much healthier and at 13 1/2 he is doing really well. I want to praise Chewy...I make orders and they show up within 24 to 48 hours. I am handicapped and it has become harder and harder to drive. Thanks to Chewy I am not pressured into getting up and driving to the pet store or having to find a driver for me. Thank you Chewy

  • Love the Blue Buffalo Dog Food

    By on

    My 3-yr-old Catahoula Leopard mix came from a rescue group and wasn't a picky eater but she has really thrived on the Blue Buffalo dry food. We tried 2 other brands but settled on the Blue Buffalo because she has been so much more eager to eat since the first bowl.
