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.

    This is the fourth food I have tried for my standard size goldendoodle puppy. He started on Royal Canin Golden Retriever Puppy, switched to Taste of the Wild Grain Free Puppy and then to Wellness Core Puppy. Now he eats this. I know that everyone says grain free is best, but it seems like the richness/protein/fat content was too much for him. He had soft stools until I switched him I this food. I use dog food review sites and although the grain free foods I had him on were extremely well rated and this is rated on the next best level, I'll take it. It's still a highly recommended food and grain free I guess isn't for everyone. I like that this is still a quality food and has a simple recipe.

Doesn't hurt that it's a little cheaper than grain free too. Plan to keep him on this for the indefinite future! … more

  • Kato's Favorite

    By on

    We brought Kato into our family in March. He was a 3 month old German Shepherd. He had a ton of belly issues which meant constantly adjusting his diet. Our veterinarian of 18 years recommended we try this last diet before we began more extensive testing. After the initial weening and introducing from the old to the new, Kato's belly issues seemed to have made a huge improvement. This may not be the fix for everyone's pup, but for ours, this brand was his fix. Now he's 8 months and over 80 lbs. He's been on this diet for 4 months now so we can't complain.

  • My pup loves it

    By on

    I have a 6 month old gsd and he have soft stool when we first got him at 2 months old, but after we tried blue buffalo, it's getting better. Even though we are still trying other brands of puppy food. My fav is the nutro brand and blue buffalo. I am still stuck if I should keep on buying blue buffalo or Nutro.

  • we love chewy

    By on

    blue buffalo life protection is great because my dog can eat like me, - healthy human foods,- which is what I would want to feed him ,so he is healthy, and he don't miss out on yummy great things. Chewy's two day shipping is beyond helpful, and their prices are great. The staff is great, they really seem to care.

  • Worth Every Penny!

    By on

    I have always been an advocate for "you get what you pay for". There is a reason Blue Buffalo is more expensive - because it is better for your dog and they will love it! My dog has had GI issues since day 1 and I originally had them on Wellness, another great brand, but they were still having diarrhea on occasion. They also started getting sick of the taste. Now they are producing healthy stools and love every bite of their food!

  • Boxer Puppy LOVES Buffalo Blue

    By on

    It is very important to me to feed my growing puppy a healthy dry food. He is almost 4 months old and hasn't turned his nose up yet. I know this choice of food is right because, to put it bluntly, his poop is perfect. No diarrhea and he goes on a regular schedule.

  • Unappealing

    By on

    My puppy didnt like this large puppy food as much as the regular puppy food from BB. And, just when i thought the BB packaging couldn't get worse, it did. There is no good way to close the bag and jeep the food fresh. I use duck tape but that is a bit of a hassle.

  • Dependable, quality dog food

    By on

    I've used Blue Buffalo Brand for around 10 years now. I especially love this flavour; dogs love it, and my dogs have less allergies, skin, and digestive problems. I honestly don't think I'll ever change brands.

  • Chow Chow loves it

    Recently switched our 5 month old Chow puppy to this food. We made the switch over a 10 day period with no problems. She loves her new food and I'm happy to feed her a top of the line dog food.
