About The Blue Buffalo Company
The inspiration for Blue Buffalo was the Bishop family’s large breed Airedale, Blue. A true family member in every sense, Blue was the best pal who ever put on a collar and no one could have loved him more.
When the Bishops decided to enter the pet food business, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent who loved their dog or cat like they did to be able to feed them with the same care they would feed a family member. And so they created a natural healthy pet food, named after Blue.

I was surprised to find negative reviews for this food. I understand the one review about the dogs not being interested in the food, but please, people of amazon, don't write negative reviews for products because your local store sold you an expired bag. 1) that has nothing to do with amazon, and 2) that really has nothing to do with the product quality -- the manufacturer didn't sell it to you that way, it was probably just on the shelf for too long. It's misleading to people looking for products when something has 2 stars because someone got an expired bag from A DIFFERENT STORE.
My dogs love this food, and I don't think I'll ever switch. Their health is important to me, and this food seems to deliver on that.
The breeder had been feeding Eukanuba Puppy food, so I started "Bruce" on a mixture of the Eukanuba Puppy and the Blue Buffalo Puppy. He would actually pick out the Eukanuba and only eat the B.B. kibbles (one of my coworkers reports that her Dachshund puppy did the same when she switched him to B.B.). So, I ultimately gave up on trying to mix the foods and just fed straight B.B. He would, sometimes, pick out those "Lifesource Bits" and leave them scattered all over the floor but is now a voracious eater and is not picky at all.
As he is now an adult, I have been feeding him a variety of the B.B. flavors. I started him with the B.B. Large Breed formula, then switched to the Fish and Sweet Potato, then the Lamb and so on. I am hoping that by rotating the formulas, I will be able to prevent or, at least, cut down on any food allergies and provide him with a healthy variety of nutrients. Since he quickly scarfs down any food I put down for him, I can't see that he has any preference to flavor. He loves them all.
I can report that, to date, "Bruce" has been an extremely healthy dog. His coat is thick and shiny, his eyes are clear, and he is a very solid 95 Lbs. Everyone that sees him oohs and aahs over how handsome he is. I know a lot of that is genetics but I'm sure Blue Buffalo had a little something to do with it, as well.
My wife suggested she might have an allergy to the carbohydrates/gluten in her food that got worse in the south Texas heat. We ordered a bag of the Blue Buffalo dry dog food and after the first feeding, she laid down next to us and did not scratch one time all evening. Her fur has grown back and she no longer has the patches of nasty, smelly rash on her. She now has energy to run up the stairs, run around in the yard and acts like she did as a puppy. The change in less than a week is amazing!
We have ordered more Blue Buffalo for all 6 of our dogs and our cat. Their coats are shinier and their eyes sparkle more. Thank you for making our pets healthier and happier.
Also: At the bottom of this review I name a brand of food that ultimately helped me meet my dog's goals.
Overview of Weight Control: While I did not do all I could to make Weight Control work for my dog, it ultimately did not help my dog reach his ideal weight. Blue Weight Control is nutrient rich, very low in fat, and uses high-quality protein sources. Unfortunately, Blue Weight Control has 444 calories per cup, which is pretty calorie-dense. I believe it was over 4 calories per gram, which, in human food, is the caloric density of cheddar cheese. My dog may have been able to eat a satisfying quantity of this food if he only needed to maintain a healthy weight, but he needed to lose weight, and the portions I had to feed him were too small.Read more ›
