Above-average protein. Near-average fat. And below-average carbs when compared to a typical dry dog food. Blue Buffalo Wilderness is a grain-free, dry dog food using a notable amount of named meat meals as its main source of animal protein. Everything is noticeably fresh and my pomeranian loves it!
Works for all of my animals, even the dogs with stomach issues react beautifully to blue buffalos food products!
My dog loves this and won’t eat anything else. Super safe for my dog. Thank you for making sure my fur babies are eating good!
My puppy goes crazy when I open any pack from Blue Buffalo. She responded well to it and enjoyed it. Defiantly will be buying more.
My puppy loves this brand. Of course she occasionally gets tired of the same flavors, but definitely a good brand.
Blue Buffalo makes a high-quality and affordable product for pet foods - typically they are healthier than the big companies
When I buy blue Buffalo dog food, my dogs go crazy for it. They love it so much. It is full of healthy things for dogs.
The ingredients in Blue Buffalo are one of the purest there is that you can buy for you dog, and my pup loves the chicken recipe!
Blue really has the best interest when coming to your pets. They only use ingredients that are necessary for your pets.
I love Blue Buffalo. I have used it for my dogs and for my cats. The ingredients are quality ingredients and my animals have always loved eating Blue Buffalo!
We used this with our puppy for the first 2 years we had her and she was never sick. We love their products for puppies and for growing dogs.
Overall this is a great dog food. Our dog absolutely loved it. Even the dog we would dog sit, preferred it to their regular food. This was the number 1 recommended food by our vet and I can definitely see why. High quality ingredients!
Both of our dogs really like the dog treats by Blue Buffalo. They are tasty and they are always looking for more. Thank you for making such a great product for my golden doodles.
I have been buying cans of soft dog food and this is one of his favorites. Its a little expensive, but has a good consistency.
I have been feed ing blue buffalo to my GSP for 8 plus years. She is a healthy and happy 11 year old and I attribute her longevity to quality food.
My dog loves this product. I also love the fact that they are available to purchase from big box stores (Sams Club as well as Smaller stores in my neighborhood). It seems to be the right size bites for my small dog as well as there treats seem to be the preference from other treats we have tried in the past. Outside of table food of course. The cost per bag is also reasonable.
Great quality, easy on dog bellies, and has the best composition of food for the price
I wanted the best for my sweet dog so I sought out Blue Buffalo. I most definitely didn't think this was worth the price. I saw no difference in my dog whether or not he ate this product. Too pricey!
Do not like! It made my dog so sick. it shouldn't be used on really any animal .

Blue Buffalo is a great dog food that I feel like I can trust. I have never had any problems with it.
I cannot say enough good things about this dog food. Our dog has used this from day one. She is a wonderful and energetic dog, and this food provides her with the nutrients and energy she needs to stay active.
My old dog that died on my birthday from diabetes used to love to eat Blue Buffalo so i think it is pretty good. Also she didn’t get diabetes from Blue Buffalo i think it was just because she was a miniature schnauzer.
Unfortunately Blue buffalo was not a hit with our canines. We normally use a different product but our local store was out and thought we would give Blue Bison a try based off of there commercials and pretty packaging. Hours after ingestion our dogs were sick. Maybe it was just bad luck, but we won’t be using This product again.
I don't prefer to buy this brand of dog food because my dog just didn't seem to enjoy it.
I love buying this brand of dog food for my dog. I love being able to recognize the ingredients they use and knowing that my dog will be healthy and happy because he eats this dog food.
Bought this on sale, not my favorite dog food but still a good option! My dog definitely still ate this. Didn’t love the ingredients.
Good quality food with all the nutrients that’s dog needs without all the bad stuff
After hearing many good things, switched to Blue Buffalo a few months ago and have seen huge changes in my pup! He is losing weight and is so energetic. He loves his food and always leaves a empty bowl.
Blue Buffalo has good food for your dog. It uses natural wholesome ingredients that my dog loves such as chicken flavor. My dog always gets excited when I bring blue buffalo food home. Thank you.
Our puppy loved this dog good. Unfortunately got too expensive for us so we discontinued using. But great quality and product!
We bought this brand to try for our dog. She loved it. She was always content after she eats! It’s a great dog food brand. Bought it a couple more times for our dog.
I bought Blue Buffalo for my puppy and I was glad that I could feel good about what I was feeding him.
Have loved this food brand for our dogs!!! They seem to love it and the benefits have been great!
Very good, my dog seemed to like it, also another plus is that there is no horrid smell.
I have bought Blue Buffalo pet food, dog food for my Shitzu and they have it special for smaller dogs. He liked the taste and didn't get tired of it and was always so excited when it was time to eat. seemed to have more energy and looked better. fur was shiny and nice and it didn't smell bad.
I had always heard a lot of good things about Blue Buffalo from friends that buy it for their dogs. It wasn't until I actually bought it that I realized just how good it was for my dog. Her coat is healthier than ever and her stomach issues have went away completely. The price is well worth the benefits.
My puppy has been on this brand since she was about 2 months. It is very healthy and has kept her growing properly. I still have her on it and plan to keep her on it!
