    Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    I would like your experience with it or opinion please. I just got the no grain, low carb recipe. It looks like a good brand but I don't know anyone who has used it.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    I've fed Blue a few times and I was really pleased with the results. I rotate between all kinds of different foods, raw and kibble and i've actually been wanting to try their Wilderness Formula - it's grainless.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    Oh cool, I'm glad you had good results. I am trying the grainless right now. I think I may rotate between the grainless and the large breed forumula. Since my local pet store closed(which had a variety of high quality foods)I am stuck with only the big chain stores. So far the highest quality food I can find at them is Blue Buffalo. I really miss using Merrick's canned food.
    I also give him beef rib backs a couple of times a week in place of his kibble dinner.

    I know what you mean. They just closed a feed store by my house that carried all sorts of good food.
    Good luck with the Blue - let us know how it goes!

    Good luck with the Blue Buffalo.

    Just a thought.. have you looked into k9cuisine.com or petfooddirect.com.
    Both sites carry an enormous variety of foods and I know with k9cuisine shipping is free for orders over $50, I think petfooddirect has a similar policy.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    Thank, I will post his outcome. I really hope it's a good one.
    I have thought about ordering on line. But I really ,really don't feel comfortable doing that. I have had my checking account messed with and someone making purchases on-line using my checking account after I had made some purchases on line. It never happened before that and since I have stopped ordering on line it hasn't happened since.
    Plus I like instant gratification-haha. Once my money leaves me I like to have the product in my hands.

    I didn't have good results with it, it gave my shelties awful gas and soft poo. My shelties seem to have more digestive issues than other dogs though, so hopefully your boy will do ok on it.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    Oh no that's one good result and two bad ones. Well I'm feeding him the grainless one which he has never been on a grainless kind so we'll see how he does.
    I wish there were more people who have tried it. I like the ingredients.

    If it makes you feel any better, Chloe is a Collie mix and also has more digestive issues than other dogs. Just this morning she woke me up at 2:00 because she had to go outside and have massive loose poo....all because she ate a handful of cat food yesterday. I swear, this dog is so sensitive....

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    I feed Pandora the Blue Buffalo Wilderness, petsmart runs out of it all the time though and it was so frustrating so I also feed them Solid Gold barking at the moon. I've made it a habit to just mix these two foods, that way they last longer and if Petsmart is out of Wilderness then no big deal because petco always has solid gold.

    She had the runs for about a day or so probably just from switching foods. I mixed some canned pumpkin in her next few meals and since then she has been fine on both of these foods. She also starts getting excited right before meal time so I believe she enjoys the food as well.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    honestly every dog i have ever met that has been fed this food is just odd. i work with a few people who have the same opinion (i work in a boarding facility, and all of us have worked with dogs for awhile). im not saying its bad, but they have all been very strange dogs. i dont even know if its related to the food, or anything, but it is something ive noticed. most recently, we had one of our regulars switch their chih. mix from natural balance to bb and she wont touch the stuff without us adding some NB lamb loaf. she is usually a picky eater, but she always ate the nb now wont eat.

    every dog is different and theres a chance they may do well. if it doesnt work out, and you dont have another food stores, then i would suggest trying natural balance next. its a good food.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    I have been feeding my dogs the BARF diet for over10 yrs. Then recently i tried the blue Buffalo for large breed dogs (I have Shepherds). they wouldn't eat it without doctoring it up. and then they started licking and spitting out the food after they got the taste of the food I was putting with the BLue Buff. And I get The Whole Dog Journal. The makers of Blue Buffalo won't reveal where the food is made, and other information the WDJ gets from other good foods. so I don't trust their food. I was giving it with the BARF diet. So I don't now. My daughter has used Avoderm for many years for many different breeds of dogs. And has had good luck with it. And it never has been on a list of recalls. So I'm using it a little bit. I'm still having trouble trusting commercial foods. I also cook and bake for my dogs. I have a library of recipes that i have collected from different places and I have some recipe books too. I make dried beef and chicken jerky for them. They get only human grade food, other than a little Avoderm.

    Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    Thanks for all the stories. I didn't know they won't reveal where they get their food from.
    It has been about 7 days. His stool is up and down. I got excited cuz for a few days it was very good and a lot less of it. But then it was very soft again and it's been good then bad, nothing consistent but then he never has been consistent with any food.
    It's been very hot lately and I don't know if that had anything to do with it but he threw up a pile of it. It was undigested whole kibble so obviously he was gulping it whole.
    There is avoderm at my Petco. I don't know, i'm sick of trying to figure out what to feed him.

    Question Re: Your opinion on Blue Buffalo dog food

    LMH I agree with you. I have used the BARF diet for years. I have had good luck with it. My dogs have been healthy and lived long lives. But thought i would add Avoderm to help stretch things. Things are so expensive. But so are the dog foods. I also decided to use some kibble just in case I couldn't be home to feed. But my kids aren't too enthused about the Avoderm and I am uncertain too. Our 9 yr old that I raised on The BARF diet has never been sick until I started using the Avoderm. So that really makes me more uncertain.

    That's not entirely true. They didn't refuse, they're information wasn't received in a timely manner before the issue went to print. They have since added Blue back to the Approved list.

    If you reconsider buying online, Petfooddirect.com is a reliable site. I found them because they sell Taste of the Wild (Mosby's favorite food) at a good price...and with the rising prices for pet food right now, it's tough to find good deals!

    Looking forward to your review of Blue Buffalo! I've heard good things.
