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.

  • Excellent for Toy Breeds

    By on

    This is a huge hit with both my 5 yr old & 10 yr old Yorkies!! Of all the dry goods I have tried them on, (including those specifically for Yorkshire Terriers), I have never seen them so satisfied with their food. My oldest has a history of grazing at her dinner through the course of the evening. In the past, she really didn't care that much that her younger brother would snitch her leftovers. Well, not any more!! No leftovers with the BLUE BUFFALO CHICKEN & RICE !! I wish I had tried them on it years ago!! Kibbles are very tiny, but you do not need to feed as much a quantity per body weight. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    By ordering my pet food through Chewy it saved me money and I signed up for auto ship. I won't have to go to the store for pet food anymore! My dog is on medication food and they carried it and we're able to ship it once they checked with my vet! Very easy!!

  • Great!!!

    By on

    I was extremely pleased with my purchase from Chewy! I have to drive 45 minutes to a pet store to get this food for my very picky Yorkie. I was very pleased to find that the food was $5 cheaper than the store I usually shop at but I got free shipping as well. I received my package in a couple of days, which also made me very happy. I will be ordering her food from Chewy from now on.

    I love this food for my little 6.5 pound Yorkie Shih Tzu mix. But my Vet told me it's like Burger King or McDonalds they are eating. I don't get it.

  • Big Improvement

    By on

    When our daughter got her Yorkie at the beginning of the year he was on Royal Canin for Yorkies and we just didn't see any weight gain and the dog didn't seem to eat the food unless we added something else. We made the switch to Blue Buffalo and what an improvement. He eats the food by itself, has gained a bit more weight and just seems happier all together. Glad we made the switch!
