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.

  • 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 shepherd is 4yrs old now. He had three surgeries for an ACL tear. First was a tendon replacement but wild puppy tore it within three months. Second was to put a plate in, TPLO to fix ACL. The plate got infected with MRSA and the powerful antibiotics needed to kill the infection really damaged his stomach lining. Third was to remove plate and more antibiotics. Now any change in diet or table food really affects his digestion. It mostly gives him dirarehha (prof carpet cleaning was needed twice -2 mos apart). I moved and could not find my dog food locally so I started using Chewy. I did change to Blue Buffalo and was fearful of the difference but my shepherd tolerated it well.

    After a number of different types available and tried we have finally found one that satisfied our girls and us. Their coats have gotten the shine back and they have new found energy. They run to their bowls when it's time to eat.

    My German Shepherd mix, Brigetta, went nuts over this choice! She has been a very light eater--a grazer--and is on the thin side. No health issues. When I switched her over to Blue Buffalo Lamb and Rice, she began eating so enthusiastically that I became alarmed, worried that she would gain weight. She loves her new dog food. It has been several weeks now and she has not gained any weight, but I'm watching her carefully. It is still apparent that she enjoys this food so much more than her former diet of Royal Canin for German Shepherds.

    Bowie is not a finicky eater, but he really took to this food. He has had a hair loss situation attributed to allergies of some kind. With this healthy food and a combo of other holistic treatments, his coat is really coming back and is super soft. Plus, less scratching.

    We have been feeding our Labradors Blue Buffalo for years, mostly purchasing it from local retailers...until I discovered Chewy.com. We are saving at least $40-$50 per month to feed our three we currently have. Thank you!

    We've been using this original Blue Buffalo product with our pup's over the past 8 years. It digests well with our Terrier mixes and they seem to enjoy it. Blue Buffalo has had several issues over the past few years, but our experiences have been positive so far.
