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.

  • Fast delivery and timely service once again!!

  • This product is great for dogs

    By on

    My dogs have been with Blue Buffalo since they were puppies. The food is all natural, dissolves in water, unlike other dog foods which stay whole, and humans can eat it too! I've tried others and I keep coming back to Blue Buffalo. I can't say enough!

  • Quality food with taurine in it

    By on

    In doing research on skunk diets, I found that they require taurine in their diet. We have 3 who seem to have skin/hair problems and we also have a dog who seems to have some problems with his skin/hair loss. So we figured we would give this a try. It also contains the fruit and vegetables that the skunks need. It's too soon to say how well it's working just yet.

  • He loves it

    By on

    We have been feeding the blue life protection regular and switched him to the large breed because he's been growing so fast at 6 months 70#. It seems to satisfy his appetite now.
