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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love blue buffalo products! We love Blue Buffalo products for all 5 of our other pets. When we got our new great dane 1 year old we were told that breeders all preferred a different brand but we asked Chewy if Blue Buffalo made a large breed puppy food,though we couldnt find it in our local stores,and they did! As always the shine in fur and eyes, and her satisfaction after a meal and her pottys all improved after using Blue Buffalo just as it did with our other older animals that were rescues from the shelter.Thanks to Blue Buffalo for great products and for chewy making it available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Puppy Can't wait until it's time to eat!!! There isn't any of the Blue Buffalo Puppy Formulas that my dog, Truman, won't eat! He loves them all and he is so healthy!!! His coat is so shinny, his teeth are so white, and his eyes are bright! This is the 3rd Lab I have had and my brother talk me into trying the Blue Buffalo brand. My other Labs died a lot earlier and were not as healthy looking when feeding them regular brand dog foods. So I tried Blue Buffalo and my goodness what a difference!!! The commercials that are made about this food is absolutely true!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want a strong good looking dog! My 8 month pit bull is a lean 68 pounds with a beautiful coat.His breath never smells and his teeth are always clean.He's been eating this particular flavor since 10 weeks old and loves it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, health-promoting product My pup had had some very poor reactions to a bad batch of his old dog food, and after extensive research, I chose this Blue Buffalo large breed puppy formula. He is doing wonderfully on it! Adjusted quickly and with no hiccups, and he seems to be feeling well, also! His skin is less itchy, glossier, and he seems nourished by much less of a quantity compared to his old brand. I'm very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy AND saves me money! Another dog owner at the dog park I go to had suggested that I log onto Chewy.Com. I did. And I'm glad I did. I'm getting the exact same product that I was purchasing previously for our St. Bernard puppy, and it is costing us less, plus I have the convenience of having it delivered automatically to our home so I don't have to even think about it any more. Thank you Chewy!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked well for a few months We used this for for about 3 months for our 5 month old golden retriever and at first it was great but then he started getting diarrhea. The vet said it was from the food because he was fine on the food they gave to us. I know puppies bodies change so it most likely was from that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Guess it's good, my puppy is eating it when he's hungry Guess it's good, my puppy is eating it when he's hungry. I just wish he would eat it as soon as I served him, but he seems to prefer to try to get table food and ultimately it's this when he sees he won't get the good human stuff.
