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.

    We've gotten probably 5 bags of Blue Buffalo from Chewy so far, and this is the first time there was really a problem. The bag showed up with about a 3 inch gash on the side of the bag near the top. It was a clean cut so my guess is that they were on a palette at some point and they got sliced with a box cutter as the palette was opened up. Food was still fine, though a little was in the box as a result of the cut. I'd still use the service again, but just wanted to let the company know about the issue.

  • Blue Buffalo For SURE !!!

    By on

    We love chewy. We've saved $$$ and Time. They have the best customer service ever. They are also very pleasant to deal with. I normally paid 75% as much as chewy charges and only received half as much. Dogs love it.Blue Buffalo Lamb and Brown Rice is their new favorite. Thanks, Blue Buffalo & chewy. John & Betty Hodges

  • Blue Buffalo Products Suggested by AKC Breeder of Merit

    By on

    We started our Pembroke Welsh Corgi when we got her as a puppy from an established AKC Breeder of Merit. With Blue Buffalo products, she has been healthy and without digestive problems since we got her. At 16 months, we have switched from puppy food to adult. We use Lamb & Brown Rice dry dog food and Chicken & Brown Rice, switching back and forth daily to ensure a good mix of vitamins and minerals. We also feed her Blue Buffalo canned food as an additional mixture with a bit of hot water to moisten the food. We also weigh her weekly to keep her at a proper weight with very minimal fat on her.

  • Great Food - Bad Bag

    By on

    I have ordered this product twice and both times, the package arrived with the bag split open and food all over the inside of the box. I store it in a large plastic container so generally only lose a few cups, but it is rather a poor packaging selection.

    My babies (all 6 of them) love this dog food. I highly recommend anything from Chewy. I have been customer for almost 2 years now and love the pricing but not near as much as the benefit of the shipping truck pulling into my driveway rather than having to run to the nearest town that carries this brand and flavor but also saves me having to load the heavy stuff in the cart, load in the car, unload at home. Plus.....my furry friends love the delivery drivers that bring their Chewy.com goodies!

  • Favorite dog food

    By on

    Blue Buffalo Lamb & Brown Rice has been our food of choice for our big border collie & our chocolate lab since they became adults. The boys are lean & strong, rock solid instead of fat. The food does not have a bad scent to it at all & does not leave the boys with offensive breath. We schedule shipping every 3 weeks with Chewy. So convenient!

  • Its ok for a substitute

    By on

    I wish my dog could talk to tell me how she likes it! But, she eats it so I guess she likes it. I can only go by reading the ingredients which were the highest rated next to Orijen which is what I use to buy from Chewy. Since Orijen is no longer offered by Chewy I was forced to find another brand to have delivered to my door. I'm actually only giving her a quarter of this Blue Buffalo mixed in with 3/4 of Orijen which I now have to buy at a Pet Food Store.

  • My Babies Love It!

    By on

    Switched my fur babies to Blue Buffalo after a friend told me about the savings I get when using the auto-delivery option. It's so convenient & now my babies REALLY are eating the best food for them.

  • Quality ingredients, affordably priced.

    By on

    I switched to this brand after Orijen was discontinued. The ingredients meet my expectations (identifiable, named, no fillers) and is reasonably priced. The girls love it, especially when we make a game of finding the 'life bits'! I've used Blue treats in my training classes for years and all the puppies love them!

  • Best dog food ever!!!!!!

    By on

    I have a Beagle / Jack Russel terrier mix who is 7 years old. She was a hair making machine. The shedding was out of control, not to mention her weight. I was having to vacuum twice a day, filling the vacuum container each time. Within a week of putting her on this dog food I could tell a difference. Now 3 months later I am not finding hair balls everywhere and am down to vacuuming because of dirt not dog hair. Her weight has started to drop as well. This is how all dogs should eat. Thank you sooooo much. I review few products but was compelled to on this one because it has made such a huge difference.
