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.

  • CHEWY is the GREATEST !

    By on

    My dog, ( a mixed breed 85 lb. rescue hates all dry food ,) have to add meat to get him to eat or out wait him a few days which my wife won`t allow. From my observation the Blue B is good quality & healthy.

  • Wonderful!

    By on

    This has been a difficult product to get. The pet store that I go to usually orders only 1 or 2 bags. The food has so many specifications, it is not purchased by lot of people. It is for large breed, adult, and low-fat. It is so nice to know that I will always be able to get it.

  • Great product-worth the $

    By on

    My lab mix is over 10 years old and was having some digestive issues, and as well was putting on some extra weight. I switched her to the blue buffalo complete-weight management, and she has greatly improved her digestion and movements. She is also more active and losing a little weight. Overall acting more youthful and healthy. I would greatly recommend this product.

  • Not just for the overweight

    By on

    Our German Shepherd has been diagnosed with pancreatitis. The episode was draining. Besides breaking the habit of giving fatty cheese snacks and ice cream, we looked for dog food that is low in fat, This dry food hit the spot. Both our dogs seemed pleased with this choice right from the start. They both go right to the bowls when mealtime rolls around. It has been a month on this Blue Buffalo and there have only been happy dogs.
