  • Best Food Ever

    By on

    My two shihtzus have shown great progress since starting this food only a few short months ago. They love it. The change in the older one has been phenomenal. He was getting pretty lazy but now he spins in circles before getting a treat, jumps up on furniture with ease, and he's running!!! So thankful I found this food.

  • Good For Dogs And Good For Momma

    By on

    Our four dachshunds and one Chihuahua love this product. It is small enough that they don't have to chew too much. They love the flavor. It also is great for their waistlines if you know what I mean. lol The only problem we had with this product is the amount of time it took to receive it.

  • Dachshunds love it!

    By on

    I have been buying Blue Buffalo long before it was available in stores in Texas. Since I have a breed that is prone to weight gain I have feed the light chicken formula with great success for years and I like that they came out with small bred. I have tried switching thinking they might like a change but I haven't found anything they like as well and had to return other high quality brands. All of my dogs have lived long full lives using Blue products.

  • My Dog Loves It!

    By on

    I was hesitant to change my 8 year old Chihuahua's food, but she was leaving a lot of her kibble in the bowl. I give my pooch a little fresh chicken on top of her kibble with a little chicken broth twice daily. The change was very well received, in fact she loves Blue Buffalo Chicken and Brown Rice formula and leaves none of it in the bowl! I highly recommend.

  • MY DOG ACTUALLY EATS NOW

    By on

    For a long time my dog would not eat food by itself. I kept buying different foods and he didn't like them. But with this one, he loves it!
