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 pet parents to be able to feed their pets 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.

  • Pup LOVES it!

    By on

    Have always fed my one year old pup Blue Buffalo with great results (vet says shes very healthy, in incredible shape and her coat is so shiny and smooth it looks fake). She absolutely loves this flavor and the kibbles are perfectly sized for her little mouth. Easy to portion out.

    My dog loves the fish and brown rice he can't wait to eat ! The size of the food is easy for him to swallow and just right for small breed dogs. It is reasonably priced, healthy and he loves it.

  • Bobby loves it!

    By on

    We run a dog sanctuary, Cochise Canine Rescue, in SoAZ, primarily for elderly and or handicapped animals we pull from euthanasia lists. One of the little dogs here, Bobby, gets bleeding rashes due to chicken/poultry food allergies. He is doing great on this food which we recently started him on...looks and smells good and he is excited about eating his meals.

  • They love it

    By on

    This is our first bag of blue buffalo and our pup loves it! He is a picky eater and didn't like what we last tried. He just looked at us with sad eyes when we fed him dinner. With blue buffalo we immediately noticed how excited he was for his food and he even ate all of it (which never happened before). I will say, if you buy it, I suggest keeping it in a closed container. The food does have a slight fishy smell, but I only notice it when I open the bin to feed him. With that said, I think the smell makes him that more excited to eat it!
