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.

  • Is It 5:00 o'clock yet?

    By on

    Personally, I have not tasted this food, but it must be delicious. My 3 labs start circling the pantry, where their food is stored, at 4:45 p.m. to remind me that it is 15 minutes till dinner. Once 5:00 p.m. arrives, this food is measured out, bowls put on the floor for all to chow down, and never a complaint it heard. (they probably are whispering to each other "Tell her to give us more"). So, based on the dogs reaction, I will say this is delicious.

  • Perfect food, perfect packaging

    By on

    I have been using Blue Buffalo for a long time. I always purchased it at my local pet store, but they never seem to carry the same formula of food when I need to restock the food. Chewy has taken that worry away. They are consistent with the food and the delivery.

  • Just wondering about the food!!

    By on

    Hi, I'm having problems with my dogs not eating this food as they did the last food I was feeding them, which was "Earthborne". I thought that this is a better food and that's why I switched. Was wondering, is this a much richer food and keeps the dogs fuller longer, or is it the fact of the change. I was thinking of trying a different one from Blue Buffalo. Any recommendations?? One dog is 14 yrs. old and was ravanous all the time, and the other is 7 yrs. old and has always had an eating problem. They are both Blue Healers. The 7 yr. old is very active and quite lean, so don't worry about her as much as the older dog. She(older dog Blue) adventually will graze during the day, but nothing Hi, I'm having problems with my dogs not eating this food as they did the last food I was feeding them, which was "Earthborne".

  • Great Product

    By on

    Was very easy to order and much cheaper than other places I have gotten this same item from. Received my order quickly too. Have signed up for the auto ship so will see how that goes looking forward to not having to go to the store to purchase and lug the big bag of food anymore and not having to worry about running out last minute to get it. :)

  • The best service ever!

    By on

    My husband and I had been watching the commercial for Chewy.com for awhile. We decided after our last bag of dogfood was gone we were going to try this new online delivery service. We sat on our couch with our 95lb chocolate lab, Chester and our 45lb black lab named Molly. We looked through the website and decided on Blue Buffalo brown rice and chicken , some dog treats and an antler. It was easy to do and we got a 20% off discount for our first order. We came home from work one day and much to our delight, it was there on our porch, on time, waiting for us to open. It was an exciting night for the four of us as Molly, Chester, myself and my husband opened the box.

They enjoyed their first Blue Wilderness duck treat and they scarfed down their dinner. They loved the food. The experience was great and we look forward to the automatic delivery service. My review really comes down to this one fact....At the end of the day, I'd rather be home throwing balls to Chester and Molly then driving to the store to buy dogfood. Thank you for the gift of convenience and time! … more

  • Great food and delivered to my front door.

    My dog loves the food. She only has one back leg. She use to drag her butt for a while when she got up from laying down for a while. Now she jumps right up and goes. I love having it delivered to my door. Thanks

  • Human vs Pet review

    By on

    I found the nuggets somewhat heavy on the chicken. My dogs All four seemed to enjoy them immensely. This is better and less expensive that Purina Focus "Chicken and Brown rice". It has the added advantage of being available. I really should send Purina a thank you for discontinuing their Chicken and Brown Rice. And Chewy for helping me find this one.

    I would definitely recommend Chewy.com to anyone. It is very convenient and my dogs love the food. It was so nice to get double the amount that I would get in the store for a lot cheaper price.

    She has usually taken her time eating her food and would often leave some in her bowl. I have been serving her this food for the past week and she cleans her bowl every time.
