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.

  • She refused to eat it!

    By on

    I've been feeding my Bernese Mountain Dog the Blue Buffalo large breed chicken formula for a while and she loves it. When I switched to this one due to allergies, she refused to touch it! It has an EXTREMELY STRONG fishy smell as well, the stench wafted everywhere...based on the great reviews, I'm hoping I just received a bad bag!

  • Great for dogs with food issues

    By on

    My shepherd/retriever mix has been on this since he got off puppy for over 7 years ago. He is allergic to poultry and wheat. This food has been awesome for him. His teeth are still white and very little bad breath (I have never had to have his teeth cleaned). He gets a measured portion twice a day and no people food. His favorite treat is an ice cube.

  • Dinner is delicious again!

    By on

    As a Weimaraner my digestive system is a bit more sensitive than most. Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Large Breed Adult Fish & Oatmeal Recipe Dry Dog Food is delicious. The triangular pieces have a nice crunch to them and the small spherical pieces are equally as scrumptious. One great benefit is not having the trots all the time. I hate running outside all the time for a personal poop-apalooza. Blue Buffalo finally allows me some dignity in that arena. And my tiny pet humans can run around in the backyard shoeless without the fear of stepping in something unpleasant. Another big plus is that my pet humans rarely talk about bottling my excess methane secretions to use as biological warfare As a Weimaraner my digestive system is a bit more sensitive than most.

I can run the fence in the backyard attempting to catch the pesky squirrels. I’ll get them some day… I would definitely have my pet humans get Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Large Breed Adult Fish & Oatmeal Recipe Dry Dog Food again!

  • Great nutritional value

    By on

    Been using Blue Buffalo for 18 years over 6 dogs. All love this brand and live happily. 2 Bassett lived 16 years, our Bloodhound is 13 and still going. No digestive problems, or good related allergies. We are now feeding our new Chesapeake bay retriever puppies Blue and they love it. Highly recommended. Chewy delivers fast and prices are competitive with stores.

  • Not what I thought!

    By on

    I know this isn't Chewy's fault! And it may not even be Blue Buffalo's fault.. However, in order for both my dogs to eat this.. I am having to thicken this up with pumpkin and instead of giving Axle the fish oil capsules he loves eating alone I pour them in this to make it even stronger... I've never seen my Great Dane Mastiff pass down a meal so this is strikingly odd.. not sure why or what has happened and this isn't cheap either.. he has such sensitive problems that is made it worse.. so I hope this doesn't happen for anyone else. I hate writing a bad review..

  • Great for Itchy Skin

    By on

    MY American Bulldog has a lot of allergies and dry skin. We tried oil in her food and it only helped a little. My Husky also began getting Itchy skin in the winter time. We switched to the Blue Buffalo fish and oatmeal and within 2 weeks the Itchy has calmed down a lot. Now, both dogs are more comfortable and only have an occasional itch. Thank you Blue Buffalo for having a great variety of foods for all needs !

  • GSD loves this food

    By on

    My 1.5 yr old GSD can be quite picky and will sometimes just pass over his food bowl. He has real trouble with some other richer flavors/brands etc. However he loves this food with no additives and has normal bowel movements (thank goodness...). His coat is shiny and no more shedding than normal (which is a lot but that's what you get with a german shedder).

  • Bad Batch?

    By on

    I generally am a fan of Blue Buffalo products, however, this last time I received a 30lb bag that was about 1/6 - 1/7 powder inside.
