    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My Goldens have been on Blue Buffalo for many years. We started with the Large Breed, and then went to Healthy Weight Management Large Breed, which was fantastic in keeping down their weight, and maintaining it. Now they are enjoying the Senior. So happy to have a great product in so many stages. Their coats, energy level, and overall well being is due to Blue Buffalo. Also, want to mention the superb service and delivery of the product from PETSMART-very impressive!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dog food! I got this dog food after one of my dogs started throwing up his old food. I took him to the vet, who diagnosed him with a food allergy and recommended I switch to prescription dog food. He was still having problems on the prescription dog food, though not as bad. I decided to try blue buffalo because the brand does not contain any common dog allergy ingredients. My dog has beed doing great since the switch!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My weimaraners love it! I have used this food for 3 very senior weimaraners. They always looked in peak condition on it (I used to show them and 2 of my weims were show champions). One of them lived to be 14 and a half. They have never suffered with any joint problems. We just have one old lady weim left now. She is 11, but still looks like a puppy - people who we meet walking cannot believe she is not a pup. So I heartily endorse this product. Also we used to travel around the whole country in our motorhome, and it was great that no matter where we were, this product was available in Petsmart.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very thankful I found Blue Buffalo. My mother boxer had pups at 3yrs old and since then seemed always tired, with low energy. I tried several different brands of food with no noticed improvement. We kept one of her puppies which is now 2yrs old. Since putting Momma Boxer on Blue Buffalo she is not the same dog. Her energy level has increased, she appears more happy and puppy like again. My neighbor also has noticed an improvement in my dogs energy level. Blue Buffalo will always be a part of my dogs diet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! This product is wonderful! Our Dog has bad joint problems pretty much all over, you see she is a rescue Amstaff when we got her at 6 months old and now she is 11 1/2 years old. I am so great full after always tracking down good food for her special needs After her being on this for 2 months now I say this dog food works for her. Thank you so much! Amstaff

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blue Buffalo Life Protection Large Breed Well since I have 2 German Shepherds and already left a review on the large breed puppy now I'll address the large breed senior. My almost 12 year old GSD had a scratching problem so I switched her to a gluten free food Blue Buffalo Life Protection Large Breed Chicken & Brown Rice Senior Dog Food. The scratching went away in a few weeks and she ate the food ravenously but there were 2 problems. Instead of less/smaller stool they grew. I almost needed a bigger shovel. Secondly she ballooned in weight. Since she's older and doesn't get around like she used to, and I have never followed the feeding amounts on the bag, I only fed her 1 1/2 scoops in the morning and 1 1/2 in the afternoon. She gained almost 8 lbs in 3 weeks which is not good. I switched her to another food made specifically for German Shepherds and using the same amount of food she appears to be shedding a few pounds.
