    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy Food I recently got a 7 month old Cane Corso. She had horrible digestive issues and the vet recommended a bland diet of chicken and rice before introducing a dog food. the vet also prescribed two different medications to help with the diarrhea. Nothing worked. After 6 weeks and still no change in her stool, I decided to start mixing in dog food. I figured I had nothing to lose because even the bland diet wasn't helping. After extensive research, I decided on Blue Buffalo large breed puppy food. After two days of adding 25% of Blue to the food, her stool began to harden. I was elated. Two weeks in and now on all Blue, I am happy to report that my dog has solid stool, goes two times a day (like clockwork) and loves the food. My friends laugh at me for being so excited about the feces of my dog. I'm sure any pet owner who has been in this situation can understand the sadness and frustration of not being able to resolve this kind of issue and being worried about your pet's digestive problems. Blue Buffalo is fabulous and she even loves the little bits some dogs seem to hate. I am so grateful for the people at BB for making such a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allergies no more My boxer has just started showing allergy issues after being on a lower brand food where the main products were corn. A month n half after being on this other brand ( not Blue ) my baby started getting hot spots all over and just would not stop itching and on top of it his stools started to get loose AGAIN, thinking that we had resolved at least the one problem ( stools ), we had 3 problems. Not only were his stools loose but he had one other problem which i talked to vet about and she just recommended to keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get any worse. Not thinking much about the foods he has been on, I started thinking back from all the foods he has been on and I decided ok enough is enough I know he needs the grains ( cuz his tummy can't handle grain-free, which is a lil odd ) and def needs something more digestable. I did my research over all different kinds of foods especially the ones I planned on putting my baby on. Its pretty much been trial and error with him. Believe it or not BLUE has worked wonders within less than 24 hrs he completely stopped itching the hot spots and his stools became normal not loose not overly hard, just right lol. and the other problem he was having has so far been resolved and not only that he is digesting Blue ALOT better and i'am thrilled ( cuz he did start throwing the old food up mainly cuz he normally hoovers his food down lol and i knew he wasn't digesting it well for some reason). Another thing is him going number two has also cut down ALOT and he is def becoming more full.He has cut down to only 2 bowls a day ( used to want to eat 1/2-1 bowl extra )which for us is a pretty good cut down and saves us extra. So for us Blue has worked out to prove itself and i'am very thrilled. I do agree with some of the other reviewers that every dog is def different and dog food is trial and error ( which my vet explained to me too ) . For me, i've definitely learned alot about whats awesome for my spoiled rotten boxer baby and glad he is doing so awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product worth every penny My puppy was previously on Innova Evo Herring & Salmon, this was a very expensive dog food ($65 for the same size bag). I asked around and did some research on my own for other good brands. Guinness my 10 week Beauceron has been on BB for a week now and absolutely loves it. His stools are nice and firm (they were a bit runny on Innova) and is going soon after eating like clockwork. He has more energy (hard to thing of a 10 week old having more) and his coat is extra shiny!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!!! I have a 4 1/2 month old German shepherd puppy. I have only been feeding him Blue Buffalo since the first time I brought him home (which was 6 weeks of age). I originally had him just on the normal puppy food from Blue Buffalo and would change the taste up between the chicken and the lamb one. I have never had any complaints about this food, and my puppy's fur is so beautiful with how shiny and soft it is, he gets so many compliments from the groomers at petsmart for his monthly groomings. Well I noticed that after awhile it wouldn't take him that long to eat his food (he is a large breed dog after all), so one day while trying to find the lamb puppy Blue Buffalo big bag I came across the large breed Blue Buffalo bag and decided I would give it a try. Only regret is I wish I would have tried this large breed puppy food awhile ago, he seems to get fuller faster and seems to enjoy it more (not sure if it's because of the bigger pieces or what), but we are both very happy with this purchase! Can't wait to see what kind of adult breeds we will be getting into after a year!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Buffalo Chicken & Rice for large breed puppys Our last two dogs/companions died of cancer. So while we were waiting for a puppy we looked at all the dry dog foods available. We decided on Blue Buffalo because of all the whole grain, real chicken and natural products used, no by products, grounded up whole chickens or other man made products. Our new puppy and companion is doing very well and loves his food and treats. Thank you for caring and for this food.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Tasty Kibble I have been giving this to my pure bred female Rottweiler puppy, Kira Von for the last 6 months. We switched from Purina to BLUE Life Protection Formula when Kira had a health scare in February. We weren't sure if it was the pond water at the dog park or some other GI issue, but this prompted us to consider a healthier option. She has since been interested in chowing down and her growth has always been on target. She turns one in mid-September and we plan to switch her to the BLUE Life Protection Formula Large Breed Adult (in the orange bag). I'm hopeful she will enjoy her new adult food as much as she has her puppy food! Kira eats about a 30 lb bag in less than a month right now, but the price differential is nothing when you take her health into consideration. Petsmart almost always has a discount on this food which makes both Kira and I happy because then we can splurge on BLUE treats!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Best for your Big Puppy! My Great Pyrenees puppy is thriving on this product. She also loves "Blue Buffalo" Banana/Yoghurt cookies. Wonderful teaching tool! This food has everything you want and nothing that you don't want for your best friend ~~~ That makes me feel good, too!! I want her to be around a long, long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food, my dog loves it! When I got my dog, the food he was eating was hard to come by in the area (nearest store that sold it was an hour away) so I switched to Blue. I love that the first ingredients are actual meats and things I understand, not corn meal or wheat gluten or anything like that. My dog loves it! He'd eat the whole bag in one go if I let him. He's a labrador and they are notorious for gaining weight fast (as well as losing it) but it's easy to maintain his weight while on this food. At 7 months old he eats 4 cups a day and maintains his weight very well. I'd say the only down side is that my boy can sometimes get some pretty bad gas, but I'm not sure if that's because of the food or because he swallows a lot of air when he eats. This food is definitely worth the price. I'm sure some people may balk at the price tag but Blue buffalo is a brand that provides quality food.
