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.

  • My dog loves this food! And I love Chewy!

    By on

    I decided to get this for my 2 year old dog, after seeing that her old food was filled with fake stuff, so I switched her to this, Ive never seen her so happy about food! She stuck her whole face in the bag to eat it! (Pictured below) and Chewy was fast too! After an hour of placing my order it shipped! Came within two days! Awesome food, awesome website!

    Shadow (our Husky) has been eating the Blue Buffalo food line for sometime now. He usually eats the salmon & brown rice or chicken & brown rice. This time we tried the lamb & brown rice. It's taken us days to get him to eat this. Not sure why he doesn't care for this flavor, but we will be going back to the other flavors once he's done w/this one. As for Chewy.com, I found the site easy to navigate & has the full B. Buffalo line. Shadow's order arrived 3 days after placing it, which was great & saved me time & fuel. The price of the B. Buffalo is more reasonable at Chewy.com. I also like the auto reorder option & that I can change it anytime I need to. Great service.

    My vet advised me to get Blue Buffalo dry food for a beagle I had, as she would get sick of other foods. She also had a sensitive tummy, so I gave he the Blue Buffalo food for that, and she ate it for the last 4 years of her life. My goldendoodle loves it also, and since he is so skinny, I was told that the lamb had more protein in it. Wish I had his metabolism!

  • Allis Loves This Food

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My German Shepherd (7 years old) loves this food. I had to switch her over quickly to another dog food without being able to slowly transition her to Blue Buffalo. She had been on another brand of dog food (Diamond Lamb & Rice) for 6 years with no problems. The last bag of dog food caused her to have a very severe allergic skin reaction to it with open sores due to scratching and biting herself. Allis loves this food. She did not experience any problems with being switched over all at once to this food. Truth be told, she is a lot more satisfied and she does not have gassy belly anymore, too.

  • My dog loves it!

    By on

    I started my dog on authority and then switched her to science diet and neither of them wer helping with her sensitive stomach. Not to mention she wasn't a fan of the food. Now she has been on blue buffalo for 3 months and she loves it! She also isn't having the same issues with her stomach. So glad I found this!

  • My dogs seem to like it

    By on

    My German Shepard has sensitive skin. Blue Buffalo has helped tremendously with this and his coat is so beautiful. My puppy is a beautiful looking dog. When his bag of food arrives he will lay by it, paw at it, and whine until I put in his container. He does not over eat but can not stand an empty dish.

  • Dogs are happy!

    We had to switch food since our normal food is no longer on chewy.com ( not chewys fault). Dogs adjusted well and chewy.com has same price as other stores! Just so much better with free shipping and I don't have to deal with the heavy bags. I have 3 large breed dogs
