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.

  • Perfect for my 5 yr old Great Dane

    By on

    My dog, Ethan, loves this food. His coat is beautifully shiny and he still has a lot of spring in his step. Although it is often hard to find Blue that is both large breed and senior ( I can generally find formulas for either large breed or senior) Chewy can stock a much larger variety of food than even the local stores of national pet food chains. Thank you

  • Lots more energy

    By on

    Since I'm a senior American Staffie, my Mom decided to try Blue Buffalo Senior. I'll eat any food, (I love everything), but after eating Blue Buffalo for just one week, I've got lots more energy and I'm playing more with my younger siblings. Mom says I look younger too :) Since I eat way too fast, and don't always chew my food, the smaller size kibble is better for me too.

  • My first time buying senior food. Great buy

    By on

    My babies are old men now. I figured it's time to start buying them senior food. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I know Blue Buffalo is the best brand, pricy but it is so worth it. My dogs haven't even finished this bag yet and I can already tell the difference in their eating habits and mobility. First off, I used to give them one cup in the morning and 1/2 cup in the evening. I've noticed I don't have to do that anymore. It seems as if their getting full off just the one cup a day. Maybe because BB has all the right nutrients and ingredients a dog needs? Makes me feel terrible for all the cheap food they used to eat. Also my older dog is pretty large, one would even say overweight My babies are old men now.

Also my older dog is pretty large, one would even say overweight slightly, however he just runs around outside like a puppy, it's so beautiful to see. I love my boys. Blue Buffallo keep up the great work. I wish you all made dental treats lol … more

  • Product is excellent. Been using it for my senior lab

    By on

    Glucosamine is great for my thirteen year old lab mix. He can walk / even run at times after I switched to this food. Definitely made a difference for him.

  • Good Quality

    By on

    According to the package the nutrients are much better and safer for a diabetic 10 year old dog than comparably priced brands I have bought, and my dog just loves the food. Definitely likes it better than Science diet

  • she doesn't like it as much

    By on

    I have a dog approximately 90 pounds and 9 years old. I have been feeding her the BB senior formula and thought I'd give the large breed senior a try. I'm sorry to say she doesn't like it as much and I will be staying with the regular BB Senior which she really likes. I'm sure this is a great food, just a picky dog. Thanks!
