Blue Buffalo’s aim is to create the healthiest foods possible.

A healthier dog is a happier one.

Thus, Blue Buffalo foods include all the finest natural ingredients combined in perfect balance for holistic nutrition.

High-Quality Protein Sources

This brand uses animal-based proteins such as chicken, lamb, turkey, beef, fish and egg.

All these ingredients have complete amino acid profiles.


Blue Buffalo only uses the best sources of fats.

Such as vegetable oils like sunflower, canola, and flax seed, and fish oils from herring and salmon.

Chicken fat is also an ingredient in many of their products.


Blue Buffalo uses whole grains, not the less expensive and less effective “fractionated” grains found in many dog foods.

Fruits and Vegetables

This dog food contains nutritious fruit and vegetables that provide lots of vitamins.

To name a few, peas, potatoes and carrots are great sources of Vitamin A and blueberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C.


Minerals can be hard for dogs to absorb.

Thus it is essential that their food is supplemented with “chelated” minerals. A chelated mineral is “attached” to easily absorbable amino acids, which means that your dog will absorb it much easier.

Blue Buffalo formulas include chelated minerals.


Antioxidants are very important in reducing oxidative stress.

LifeSource Bits are the small, dark kibbles included in Blue Buffalo dog dry foods.

LifeSource Bits represent a precise blend of nutrients and antioxidants.

They include a combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that help to maintain a healthy oxidative balance, support dog’s immune system and provide support for their life stage necessities.

Blue Buffalo develop its own recipes with advisement of veterinarians and PhD nutritionists.

They have strict controls in place to make sure that ingredients meet the maximum quality criteria.

All of the Blue Buffalo ingredients come from facilities that are USDA-approved and inspected.

Why was the Dog Food Selector created?

Each dog has unique needs... The approach "one food for all dogs" isn't the more suitable. Dogs have different sizes, different life stages, unique breed characteristics, health conditions and a few other factors... Choosing the right food for your dog may help him or her life a longer and healthier life! We exist to make that task easier for you.

How does the Dog Food Selector work?

It's quite simple... It's a 1-2 step process. You just have to fill in the form with your dog's characteristics, like gender, age, size, activity, health conditions and a few other important data and click "search". Then, you'll see a list of dog foods with the highest review score. If you wish you can see all the detailed review of each individual dog food.
