    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food for your dog One day I walked into the store spent an hour reading labels trying to find the best dogfood I could find. The most natural dogfood, so I picked up the Buffalo Blue my dog loves this food. And she is fussy when it comes to eating. Natural products, gluden free, fish oil for the joints. I would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!! I have 2 long-coated chihuahua's and they were both overweight, I bought this food to help with weight control. They have both lost weight and enjoy this food. The older one is now jumping around and playing again. The younger one has also become more playful with the lost weight. I am totally satisfied with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beleive the hype! We used to feed our two dachshunds Purina Puppy Chow and as they approached one year old we wanted to transition them to big boy food. After we learned of the "by-product" contained within Purina we decided to switch brands. We read other reviews of other Blue Buffalo types and one reviewer stated her dachshund was more energetic, her coat was softer and shinier and her mysterious skin allergy disappeared. We can confirm to all of the above. While we do like it when our "puppies" sleep, we are in love with the fact that they are greatly more energetic and are enjoying life at a higher healthier level now. We will admit that their stool has definitely softened which is probably good for them but makes cleanup a bit harder. Blue Buffalo is the way to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Breed Healthy Weight OMG! My dog loves this one. Eats her whole bowl in one sitting and it does NOT have the dark bites like the others ones so she doesn't have to spit these out. 2 15# bags will feed her for 6 months and it was delivered to the door.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed a Low Fat Food I needed a low fat food for my miniature schnauzer due to pancreatitus and colitis. I did a lot of research and found this food on the list of high quality recommended low fat foods. He hasn't had any issues now for a year. He loves the food and he seems very healthy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I never knew I needed! I was using BLUE Small Bites - Chicken & Brown Rice. A couple of friends mentioned my dog had gained some weight since than the last time they saw her. I tried out BLUE Healthy Weight Food - Chicken & Brown Rice Small Breed and after three months had the same people over again, and they couldn't stop talking how great she looked and that she somehow looked more athletic and lean! Looks like I'll be sticking with the Healthy Weight dog food from now on. **Side Note** - My dog WILL NOT eat those little "Life Protection" balls; they're scattered all around her bowl. And living room...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value Our dog is up in age and is overweight and having problems with her legs. We have been trying to get her weight down and so we thought it would be good to invest in some good weight control dog food. Our dog loves the taste.

    In the product description it says “NO chicken (or poultry) by-product meals” but the second listed ingredient is chicken meal?? 

    Asked by: Bsileo

    Is this okay for dogs with sensitive stomach?  We presently use Blue Buffalo Basics but we are concerned with the recent information about grain free foods being unsafe so looking to switch to a food with grains.
