My dog loves blue buffalo dog food . It’s very easy for him to chew and it tastes delicious and it has great benefits like it promotes cognitive development supports muscle and bone development and it’s a small kibble which is perfect for my puppy. The chicken and brown rice is healthy for my puppy. I usually buy the 34. Pound bag because it lasts me quite a while.

Tried a few different foods for my puppy, with no luck. Then switched to Blue puppy dry food, and my puppy can't get enough. Loves it so much, I also use it as a reward treat. A Huge Thank You Blue Buffalo for making such a quality food that my puppy loves it so much that he probably thinks it's a high reward treat instead of a meal.

My puppy have been on this for 5 months, they love it. My only complaint is paying for 15lb bag and, only getting l0lbs worth of food out of it. I store their food in a 10lb container, it literally was filled to a little less that 10lbs.

Why is garlic one of the ingredients

3 out of 5 stars
Victor - 7 months ago
originally posted on bluebuffalo.com
I had been very happy with the dog food until I read all the ingredients and found that garlic was one of them and as far as I know garlic is toxic to dogs, why would that be part of their dog food.
