Looking for specific info?

Which has the best flavor..beef, chicken, fish, lamb?

My dogs love the chicken best, and then the lamb. I buy the fish when they’re getting a little chubby, because they don’t like it as well, and eat less. I don’t recall trying the beef.

I need to know if any ingredients are sourced from another country before i buy.

I was assured the ingredients in their dog and cat food are are not outsourced from any international country. Nutritional levels are approved by the association of american feed control officials (aafco). More info can be found at which rates dog and cat food. It’s a great website for current recall info and changes in food ratings.

I can’t remember what kind i bought from the store but want to buy it here since it is cheaper…does the food look like whole wheat? Round and brown

Not sure it looks like whole wheat but is round and brown….a flat round. My girls(papillions) love it.

How many calories per cup? Seems weird that that isn’t on the packaging.

It is on the packaging, on the side of the package under the ingredients and nutritional content table. It’s weird that the seller here does not include a picture of that side of the package anymore. They used to, then removed that picture from all types of dog food they sell which to me raises suspicion as to the honesty of this particular seller regarding this product. For the basic life formula with lamb and brown rice the content is 419 kcal/kg, most of the basic life formula from blue buffalo for adult dogs will have similar calorie content.

What size is the kibble in the 5lb. Bag? It doesn’t say on the package?

I was unaware that the bag size determines the kibble size. I’m going to answer with confidence, that the kibble in the 5lb bag is the same size as the kibble in the same version, different size. And size, same version. Unless it’s otherwise marked by the manufacturer…. Resulting in bags that don’t match. Because there would be a label. Hope this helps.

Why does delivery take 12 days?

I am on subscribe and save and the delivery is always in sync with the balance of my order. Usually arrives a few days prior to the promised date.

Can this be returned if your dog won’t eat it

I would contact the seller, manufacturer, amazon. I’m sure one of them will work with you.

Where is my dogfood it was supposed to arrive monday and i am leaving my dogs today i am out of dog food?

Go to the store and buy what you want, and ask your vet before you continue with a brand

What are the ingredients?

I have read the ingredients, but i don’t have the bag since
i have had to change to medicated food temporarily.
Just check the bag wherever you shop. That will tell you what you need to know.

Chicken or no chicken?? Natural dog food: does not contain chicken or poultry by-product+ contains dry dog food, chicken and brown rice (which is it??

Chicken/poultry “by product” is not real food. It’s all the left overs and can include even pieces of road kill or euthanized animals. It’s disgusting. If it says chicken “meal” that is all edible parts of the chicken. If you’re looking to spend this kinda money for a good quality natural food go with nature’s instinct. Also, just look at the type of recalls food has and it tells you what kind of food they are selling.

I have both a large and small, under 10 lbs, dog. How big is the size of the kibble?

I have two shih tzu and they are fine with this food there on chicken and brown rice one and dont have to buy small dogs one if you dont want too. Mine are fine regular one dog food the kibble are not that big at all my shih tzu have small mouth and eat it fine with no problem mine under 10 lbs hope it helps !

What is the expiration date? I have s small doc

I really don’t know the expiration date. I buy the 30 pound bag and it fits in an air tight dog food container i bought on amazon. I have been doing this for many years and have had no problems. I have a 45 pound bulldog and it takes her about 5 to 6 weeks to finish the bag. If you have a small dog, i would suggest buying a smaller bag and empty the contents into an airtight container. You won’t be disappointed with blue buffalo. I buy the lamb and brown rice because i don’t care too much for chicken~hence my dog doesn’t care for it either!

Kcal / cup ?

I have the lamb and wild rice, and the bag says 379 kcal/cup.

Where is it made?

Manufactured in wilton, connecticut. Usa

Is this one of the blue buffalos that contains high amount of lead

The product you mentioned was recalled by the company in 2010 for high moisture and mold problems. There has been no recent recalls for this product or the adult lamb and rice that i could find. We had a dog that died from the paper contaminated dog food from another manufacturer. We chose blur buffalo because of the high ratings and testing process. I can’t fond any recall or complaints related to the chicken dog food that you mentioned.

Can i feed t his to my 75 lb dog? Or is it for small breeds?

Do not feed blue buffalo to your dog. It killed my dog. Go to consumer affairs and read all the complaints about all the dogs who became ill or died. And then go to pet food advisor and read reviews of brands safe for you dog. My dog was 90 lbs and he was poisoned.

Any idea why amazon emailed about a problem with the food. They gave out a purina number. Purina gave me blue life’s number but it goes to a voicema

Perhaps purina bought blue buffalo. Keep calling the number and see if you get response

Do u hv chicken and brown rice for senior dogs w 20% crude protein?

I stopped feeding this to my dog after the quality dropped and my dog got really sick. Try something different. Blue buffalo is not as good as it once was.

How many cups per 30 pound bag?

Over 120+. I used 4 cups a day x 30 days =120 cups and i don’t believe i run out in a month.

My dog died yesterday cancel all blue buffalo dog food

Sorry to hear about your dog.

I've not had problems with this food

I’ve had no problems with this brand of bb dog food. I just started shipments 2 months ago. After reading the 1 star comments i was concerned, but giving issues a thought it could be from over heating if delivered in summer. Dogfood maybe dry but there is moisture in it to an extent. If it goes from cool to hot moisture can occur (even with the dog food in the stores). I will certainly keep an eye on my dogs delivered food. But, i am not going to stop my shipments unless it is during a very hot stretch of summer then i may pause shipments for those months. I do have to say bb is very good dog food. I own 7 miniature australian shepherds and 1 toy dachshund. 1 aussie has some food allergies that dissappear with this food.

Blue buffalo dry dog food

My two large dogs have always done well with bb dog food. They’ve been eating it since they were pups. I received a big bag of dry lamb & rice food rvery 2 weeks. The food has always been good quality with high protein & low fat.
I recommend.

Too costly. I like the product for my pets, but it can’t be returned so try to find a local vendor.

Better ingredients than prior dog food

One of our dogs has allergies and weight issues. So far, this food is helping. We want to get him to a healthy weight, but also not make his skin allergies worse.

Dogs have been sick for a week

I agree with another reviewer. My 2 dogs have been eaten this food for a long time. However, during the past week and a half, both have been showing signs of not feeling well. I suspected the food. Then last night, one of the dogs had a major attack of diarhea on the kitchen floor (yeah, smart dog). I’m going to toss mine too and head over to the local source. It might be the heat causing the food to go bad. I just thought others should know about this too.

Will stick with b. B.

Tried the amazon brand food bc i am cheap. It really messed with my dog’s gut. They all were gassy and stinky. Bought blue buffalo afterwards and hoped the splurge would fix the problem. It did! I am so glad. I won’t stray again.

Best dog food

I’ve been feeding this to my dogs for many years, so i thought i’d finally write a review. This is the only dog food i’ve found that every dog i’ve ever had loves to eat. I prefer feeding my dogs food with good ingredients, and this fits the bill. Is it expensive? Yep, but my guys are worth it.

My dog loves this food. She seems healthier and happier than when i was giving her another brand

4Expert Score
The dogs balked at the previous dry food. They eat this kind.

I used to think all dogs were always hungry and would always eat. My current pack is nothing like that. I switch around with both wet and dry dog food, as well as whether the pack gets dry in the morning, wet for dinner, or vice versa, sometimes the same thing both times. And snacks. Lots of snacks. I try to keep them from getting bored while also developing a familiarity, two obviously contradictory goals. They generally stop eating any kind of dry food i’ve given them, from purina to nutra nugget, after a while. This one, blue buffalo, they’ll still turn up their nose to, if they can weasel their way into getting me to make them burgers or salmon or chicken (their favorite.) instead of picking through their bowls for the meat and leaving the dry food to sit until later (just before bed), they’ll eat this too. I don’t have high expectations, so having them eat what i give them, when i give it to them, counts as a win for me.

Dog loves the flavor.

I was looking for a new dog food for my dog. Came across this, and she loves it

No more scratching

We have at least one dog that is allergic to poultry. This is far cheaper than buying it at publix, plus the dogs are no longer scratching and in misery. So much easier to have it delivered than for my disabled son to try and hoist it out of the trunk once we are home.

My dogs love this

I was looking for something healthier to feed my dogs and they seem to love this. My only complaint is the price, i wish it were cheaper.

Not suitable for picky eaters

My dogs typically aren’t picky and they were very finicky with this food. They barely at any of it. I decided to order another flavor. Hopefully they like the beef flavor. However, my cat would not stay away from this dog food. We had to pick up the bowls so he would not eat it.

Dog loves it, shipping frequently a mess!

The dog loves it, he’s an english bulldog and their tummy’s can be sensitive but this works for him. The issue is usps delivers this package (for some reason) and it arrives damaged on a regular basis. Frequently (more then 3 times or i wouldn’t bother writing this) the box is broken, ripped, and damaged. Amazon customer service responds quickly to remedy the issue. However, it’s easily fixed with just some attention to detail on the post office delivery people.

Dogs ate it but..

Our dogs left the little round pieces all over the floor. They loved the bigger pieces so i think the rice is the little round balls and our two picky eaters want only the meat. Other two dogs ate it all and cleaned up after the two picky eaters.
