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.

  • Finally starting to slim down!

    By on

    I got this because I wanted my dogs to lose some weight. I wanted them to still feel like they were getting the same amount of food, just less calories. I think its working as they are slimmer and will let me know if they are still hungry. My boy will flip his plastic food dish if he's still hungry! I also wanted to retain the high quality food they have been getting with the Blue brand.

  • Love Blue Buffalo

    By on

    My first rescue was a 7 year old, heart worm positive Chihuahua. He seemed so small and fragile and he was going through so much with the heart worm treatment. I just wanted to give him the best chance at a long, healthy life so I researched many different dog foods and liked what Blue Buffalo had to say. Seven years and 3 more rescues later I'm still using Blue Buffalo. We have all slowed down a bit so I switched to the Healthy Weight version but they don't seem to know they're on a diet. Bottom line is that although all of my dogs come from questionable beginnings, I have had no health issues with them since starting them on Blue Buffalo.

  • Small Bites

    By on

    This food truly has tiny little bites that are good for really small dogs or even toothless ones. I have senior rescue dogs from puppy mills who have been bred so much their teeth have fallen out. Soft food is fine, but they still like dry too. This allows them to enjoy the feel, but not so big and hard as to be a prob. Also love the free shipping! Thank you.

  • Time for a change

    By on

    She had been eating the same food for nearly a year. She just stopped wanting to eat. Vet trip was fine. She does have allergies so I went with chicken and rice. She is an eager eater again!

  • Tasty little kibbles

    By on

    I mix these smaller kibbles with larger ones to give my dog a mix, but he usually eats all of this food first and leaves the bigger kibbles. I like it because it's meant to help maintain healthy weight.

  • Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula

    By on

    My dog loves this food and the kibbles are small enough for small breeds. It is too soon to tell if he is losing weight since I am still phasing the new food in with the old, but it is definitely more healthy for him than the grocery store food he was getting.

    I have a bichon and a cavachon who have always been fed Blue Diamond dry food. They both are getting a little older and the bichon had gotten a little heavy so I switched to this food. They both like it and had no problem changing.
