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.

Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Small Breed Senior Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have two elderly toy poodles with teeth missing. They both love the food and are able to eat it well because of the small kibbles and little tasty bits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why we chose Blue Buffalo dog food and Chewy.com Earlier this year our dog started having seizures. We took her in to the vet and he didn't try to figure out what was wrong but wanted to start her on anti-seizure meds right away. We didn't want that for her especially since it wouldn't take care of the problem causing the seizures. We removed her Eukanuba dog food and put her on hamburger, veggies and rice. We didn't see any improvement in regards to the seizures so to make life easier we decided to put her back on regular dog food. Our daughter recommended this brand and since it was made in America we decided to try it. So far she has been doing very well, but I have noticed that she eats her food a lot slower than she has before. She also isn't sleeping as much. Unfortunately the seizures have not stopped. I like that we can have our food automatically shipped. The price is better than Eukanuba too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small nuggets my jack russel eats very quickly and needs the smaller bits. He doesnt always take the time to chew the larger nuggets. he is very active and has a beautiful coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I had a lot of trouble finding a product that my Terrier would like, and was also convenient for me, after I adopted him. Blue Buffalo was recommended to me by a K9 SAR pal. It is perfect. As to Chewy Dot Com, I like the ease of ordering, the simplicity of delivery, and the price. I would like it better if shipping were free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this food! My two dogs are creeping into the 'senior' category and one of them needed to have a quality food with not quite such a high level of protein. This food has quality ingredients while not containing a huge level of protein. My dogs transitioned to it easily!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My dogs would not eat this food. My dogs are picky eaters and become tired of food quickly. I had hopes they would love this food. I thought it would be a healthy choice. I had to add wet food to encourage them to even take a bite. Not a good food for my dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dog Loves It! I have an older dog and she loves this food. She's always had a sensitive stomach so I've been feeding her for years on the Senior blend and she's doing great! I plan on continuing to feed her this forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for senior dog. My 14 yr old Jack Russell likes this food. Small kibble is easy for her to chew and she has had no digestive issues with it. I like the fact that I can buy it in small bags.
