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.

  • Stinky Puppy!

    By on

    My puppy liked this food, and for the most part, had no problems with it. The only thing is that it gave her REALLY bad gas. I switched her to a different food, also because I wanted to put her on a large breed formula, and the gas went away. Other than that, it's a really great food

  • Puppies love it!

    By on

    We got two 8 week old Aussiedoodle puppies that were sisters. One weighed 6 pounds, the other 10. They were eating Kirkland puppy food when we got them. We switched to the Blue Buffalo Freedom puppy food, and they both love it and after six weeks, both dogs weighed the same.

  • first time blue buffalo user and new puppy

    By on

    Our new puppy needed a high quality food to support her rapid growth and offset her rough nutritional start in life. She was fostered by another nursing dog who mother ed a combined litter of 14! The puppy formula was recommended by our veterinary clinic. Penny is 10 weeks old now and thriving. The food is well tolerated with no excess gas or concerns about artificial junk in the food. Potty training has been easier as her digestive tract tolerates it well. (Ie no loose stools or constipation).

    my heeler mix puppy has been eating this food since I brought her home at 2 months. She weighed 7 pounds. She is just now 5 months old and weighs in at 32 pounds. The veterinarian says she is healthy and doing well. her coast is soft and shiny and seems to be doing well on this food. I follow the guidelines on the bag to determine how much to feed her.

  • Great product at a great price.

    By on

    Chewy is great. My Dachshund loves this food, and gets excited the minute he sees me reaching for the scoop. Although its a bit pricey, he eats it very well and has minimal, almost no shedding. The price from Chewy cant be beat i looked around and finally purchased from here.

    By on

    Blue Buffalo has done well by me and my puppy. He loves the chicken and rice, not that he really went through a lot of choices and chose this. After much research on dog/puppy food, I feel that this contains everything necessary for his health. Highly recommend this food.
