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 Large Breed Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great benfits We have been using Blue Buffalo for years now and our dog has never been happier and healthier. We have a 70 lb, 13 year old boxer. He is thriving on this food. His coat, teeth, and energy levels are as healthy as they can be. When we didn't use this food, he had constant ear infections and flaky skin and always seem to be unhappy. We tried all kinds of different stuff and nothing seemed to help, but this is the only food that seemed to clear everything up. Even our vet remarks on how healthy he his. I did lots of research before purchasing this food, and found it worth the money to have so many of the top ingredients meat, and the rest fruits and vegetables. It is pricier than the grocery store options, but we only tend to go through a little over a bag a month. This is the absolute best dry kibble on the market, and we love our dog like family, so we cannot see giving them anything less. This has been a great experience and surely will give my dog long healthy life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This food keeps my Labrador regular ! I've tried all sorts of food from thingscostung teice this amount and after my dog stayed w my bf 2 weeks ( his dog eats only blue ! ) I saw he was no longer having bouts of diarrhea , and he always wolfs the food down ! This is the best food ! When I tried more exotic ( i.e. Duck, venison etc he would have trouble !) I like to stick with chicken rice bc his tummy is sensitive ! I also love chewy so much !!ive gotten food my dog wouldn't eat and they credited my account and advised me to donate it!( what a great company! ) they have my business for life!!i have two older chinese cresteds that eat canned food and a silver lab (eats only dry ) theboxes chewy ships inare so strong! They can ship 2 cases of canned and a huge bag without it breaking!! I like that they don't waste space or resources on multiple shipments !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Food for your dog! Blue products are some of the best and healthiest for you puppy or your grown up dog. All of my dogs past and present love Blue products and thrive on them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have two Kangals and they get bored quickly with their food so I find myself having to switch dog foods every couple of months or they will gradually stop eating, drop weight etc. They tend to be able to eat anything and can be real garbage pits so stomach sensitivity is not an issue in our household. One of my girls had a broken leg as a puppy and I used to have to have her on a joint supplement for her to stay active and comfortable but honestly since I switched to this, not only do their coats look amazing, they eat their bowls clean, and I haven't had to re-purchase joint medication. They have both picked up weight again and look incredible. I saw a reveiw about how this food minimizes pet dander and I hope that's true! I just switched from Fromm and did not love that food. They also have been through Natural Balance and Royal Canin and honestly this is the best I have had for them so far. Great Product and hope they don't grow bored with this food any time soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charlie Charlie is a nine month old male GSD. We just recently came off the puppy food for large breeds. Charlie seems to love the adult food just as much as the puppy food! What I think I like most about Blue is that it is so easy to modify Charlie's food intake, as he grows up, to maintain a healthy weight based upon the amount of activity Charlie undertakes. We do give him a few snacks from time to time but, he never seems to be hungry between feedings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Healthy Food We recently adopted a rescue dog. She is a sweet, mostly black lab, about 4 years old. Her foster folks recommended Blue Buffalo foods, so we did a little checking and learned that they provide a very healthy diet for our girl. She was quite thin when we brought her home, but on her Blue Buffalo foods she has gained some weight, has a shiny coat, and has never had any digestive problems. Great stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys love the food! We have tried other foods because of Blue's price and have had nothing but issues. Thanks to Chewy, we can gets out boys the food they love and are good for them at a great price. I can't thank you enough!! Also, living so far from town does not always make it convenient to run to the store for dog/cat food. Chewy helped with that, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was recommended by the rescue I got my dogs from For a dry food, it meets most if not all requirements needed to keep my large dogs healthy. My Wolf dog has a temperamental stomach, this product works for her. I also own a pure bred German Shepherd. Their coats are amazing to look at and feel! When you can find it at a reasonable price, pick some up and try it! Roger
