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.

  • great food for my picky pup

    By on

    I highly recommend this food for someone who is looking for the benefits of the adult formula but wants smaller size bits. I have an Australian shepherd named mayzie I kept her on puppy food for a while because broke her leg and I felt the puppy formula would help her recover. After about five to six months after her break, I decided to change her to adult formula but she didn't like the big pieces of food I'm guessing because she was use to the puppy formula with small bite sized food. I was recommended to just get small breed formula but was told it didint not have the same supplements in it for joint support and bone health which I feel is very important for mayzie since she broke her leg I highly recommend this food for someone who is looking for the benefits of the adult formula but wants smaller size bits.

    I took advantage of an online coupon and free shipping and got a 30lb bag for almost the same price of a 15lb bag. It arrived in a couple of days and was very convenient. Great value and so easy I will order again.

    My older dog died in January and my second dog and I inherited my son's dog who had been eating this food for 8 years. My deceased dog had required prescription food, so I was glad to change and now 2 dogs are on the same diet.

    I have only had Miss Mia a month and when she first came to live with me she had never had decent food. She doesn't like it and will need to try something else. I have been told to try the lamb and rice as it is easy on her tummy. Will donate and order again. I love the service. And have already told my friends.

  • Great food, lousy delivery

    By on

    Great dog food. Lousy delivery. I have been using this dog food for over 4 years. I have a 15 year old shepherd who is still going strong. I believe it is because of Blue.

  • Great food

    By on

    My dogs love the food and their coats are so shiny, there is even less shedding and their weights are healthy on this diet. Not to mention small bites is perfect for my old Yorkie with missing teeth. I even have skunks and raccoons coming a few evenings cleaning my dog's bowl :/
