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 Senior Dog I wouldn't feed my senior girl anything but this. She gobbles it right down with no issue. I choose this brand for the wholesome ingredients and extra vitamins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart purchase! My Bernese loves this food and I loved the fact that it was shipped to my home the day after order! No more lugging 30 lb bags from my local pet store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from blue buffalo keeps my dogs healthy I've been feeding my dogs blue buffalo for ten years now and they get a clean bill of health every year
Date published: 2017-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product has better ingredients than the science diet for joints that the vet wants me to feed him. It's only his first bag. He likes it and it seems to be helping, he has hip dysplasia and arthritis.
Date published: 2016-12-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST REWARD We have fed Blue Buffalo infrequently to our dogs. Now that our Golden Retriever is moving into his senior years, we've decided to reward him with Blue for life. He's accepted it with gusto.
Date published: 2012-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for your large senior dog. Switched from Blue Life protection for large breed to this (senior) specific. We transitioned slowly, mixing the new food in with the previous. Although this may not be necessary if you are feeding the Blue brand already. Key difference is the MSM (Glucosamine) amount is greater in the Senior large breed. I have 11 year old lab who weighs 74 pounds, so hips and joints have always been a concern. She's doing great and loves the updated diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey But Everything I was looking for in a Dog Food! I was looking for a large breed senior dog food (not a weight loss formula) for my very slender 13 year old Weimaraner. Despite her age, she is still very active and still has great ease of mobility. I would like to keep it that way as long as possible so glucosamine and chondroitin were critical in the new food we chose. She is a very picky eater and will ignore most dog food all day-but gobbles this food right up! I like that it is made with premium ingredients and that is geared for her age and breed size. So far, both she and I are very pleased with Blue Buffalo and plan to buy again!
