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.

Customer Reviews

Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Small Bite Senior Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from When only the best will do As the dog-dad to two senior small dogs and hospice caregiver for another three, it's important to provide the best nutrition with a balance of protein and nutrients. I have found this small bite to be everything I need it to be. The pups enjoy th flavor and none have had a problem digesting it, if anything they're more regular than they've probably been in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ingredients for senior dogs - hard to find Senior dogs might need less protein in their food, plus my dog has always had sensitive gum tissue, so these "smaller bites" are easier for him to eat. Its hard to find these quality senior foods in these quantities locally, plus free ship was great. I was VERY happy to find this on-line at Chewy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems It started out ok but a month into, all my dogs started to get sick, vomit & diarrhea, bad diarrhea. Checked further online to find that this food does not have a very good rating & some of the ingredients are questionable. I would not recommend this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! We just adopted a seven year old mini pinscher and we couldn't get her to eat anything - not even bacon. After a week of "picking" at whatever we put in front of her, we finally tried this Blue Buffalo product and she inhaled it. We are very pleased with this dog food - the size of the small bites is perfect and we see a difference in her energy and coat.
