Questions & Answers for Blue Buffalo Blue Buffalo Chicken & Brown Rice Adult Dog Food

Question

I am thinking of changing my dog's food to Blue Buffalo.

I adopted my dog and in a year and a half she has gained 25lbs!! Blue Buffalo has come highly recommended, but I obviously am concerned with the cost. If I switch her, which food should I use? She is 5 years old, and is overweight, but overall heathly. Since Blue is a more balanced meal, do we feed less food? Should I put her on the regular adult dog food, or the weight control brand? I have had dogs all my life, and have always given them store brand or Purina. I am nervous about switching. Thanks for all help.

I always used Purina too, but I am glad that I switched. You shouldn't have to worry about feeding your dog less. The fact that she is getting the nutrients she needs, without the filler, should make her eat less. I know that is what happened with my dog. He had no problems when switching over to this brand. I would start with the regular, and if you don't see the weight dropping, then switch to the weight control.

When you feed a premium dog food like Blue you reduce the amount because they absorb more of the healthy nutrients because there is less garbage in the food. You have to figure out the right amount for the dog and their activity level. Blue also sells a healthy weight.

I have a ShiTzu (17 lbs) and switched her to Blue Buffalo at 6 mos old. She loves it. With all the animals (cats & dogs) I have cared and shared my life with, I insisted on getting either the Organic or Holistic brands of food in order to give them quality health, energetic lifestyle and no vet bills. I certainly don't trust grocery store foods with all the fillers, by-products, etc. I also wouldn't take my children to fast food restaurants and feed them processed foods!! I rarely have had vet visits as a result of feeding quality food. I also don't give them the treats from the stores....I use frozen/canned green beans, carrots, etc. I also cut back on the dog food and add tofu, veggies to her bowl and she loves it as well as apple treat. Of course, walking and exercise is vital in their lives as well as ours for good health overall.

I have been a dog lover and caretaker all of my life, and have had multiple breeds as well as mixed breeds. Last year was the first time I ever tried Blue on my dogs. I think it is a fantastic product. The Vet agrees with me, and previously had said that dog food with corn in the first few ingredients causes weight gain. My personal experience with this product tells me that my dogs are more energetic now, which helps when you are trying to get your dog to lose weight. Whether or not you choose weight control food would depend on how much weigh she needs to lose.

I don't know what kind of dog you have, but 25 lbs. in a year and a half is WAY too much weight. You are obviously feeding her too much. I have two 55 lb. German Shorthaired Pointers and they are VERY active. They each get two cups of Blue's Adult Chicken (blue bag) per day. You need to be guided by what it tells you on the bag how much to feed her and how much exercise she gets. You can't put a pricetag on a good quality dog food because in the long run you will save on vet bills.

My experience with switching a dog from one food to Blue Buffalo was very negative so I cannot recommend the food. BB advertising that they are balanced does not mean other foods are not. We've had two dogs on Pro Plan and we've never had an issue at all.

Basically, Purina and store brands are NOT quality dog food.. Good quality foods pay for themselves in many ways. 1) Far less waste i.e. less fecal matter-more nutrients, 2) Better overall health -less vet costs, and 3)happier healthier dogs..I do not know a lot about dog food but I do know that if you feed cheap food to your dog, it is like eating burgers every day for us and never eating a good balanced diet. Blue Buffalo is a good quality food and my dogs do very well on it.. I would use Blue Baffalo weight control to get your dog back on track, portion control and then you could switch to standard diet when she has lost the weight. If she is inactive, stick with the weight control.

I adopted my 5 year old dog in November and he was already eating Blue Buffalo Adult Chicken and Rice so I kept him on it. He was 40 lbs and stayed the same weight until I started feeding him too many dog treats and table treats. He only gained a couple of pounds but I cut him back from 2 C a day to 1.5 C a day and he is doing great. As long as you cut way back on treats and table scraps, you can feed your dog the recommended amounts on the package for the weight you want her to be. If you still want to feed her the treats, cut back on the recommended amount by 1/2 C

I would stick with Blue Buffalo - it's just such a healthy food - and look for the lowest calorie diet. (The Senior formula will have fewer calories.) Remember, the same is true with dogs as with people. Calories in, calories out. So give her fewer calories and exercise her more.

I would get the best food you can afford. This food was recommended by our trainer, but neither of my dogs liked it very much. I would try a sample or a small bag first. I'm sure Blue Buffalo has some kind of guarantee and if not, Petsmart or Petco will give you a credit if you bring it back. In the end, we turned to Natural Ultramix. It has real bits of banana, peas, carrots, etc and the dogs love it. Eukanuba dog food seems good too - that's what the vet recommends. Choose what's right for your budget, but make sure the first two ingredients are meats (preferably the first 3) and make sure it doesn't have corn in it. Rice, barley, grains, etc are good fillers. Hope this helps.

One more thing. My friend has an overweight dog and her vet reduced the daily food amount by a little, and instructed them to put a can of green beans in the food with it. It fills them up and has some good proteins.

You can feed less of Blue than most other brands, so the big bag should last longer that you are accustom to dog food lasting. :) Blue has no corn, wheat or soy, so your dog should get immediate relief from allergies. You might even consider getting the Blue Basics to really pull back on ingredients and then ease your pup into regular Blue products. Good luck!! I have used Blue for a couple years and will never switch!

I buy a 30lb bag of Blue Buffalo Chicken and Rice for my two boxers a male of 75lb(3 cups food), and a female of 25lb(2 cups food). It lasts me about three weeks, and I pay around $50. I cannot find it in town, so sometimes I order online through Petco.com, especially when they have free shipping available. Most of the time, I make trips to a bigger city nearby which has a Petco, and I purchase it there.

You cannot buy good, specialty dog food at a grocery store.
You may want to try breed specific Royal Canin -- look for the bag with the German Shepherd Dog on the front. You can also add fish oil to her diet to help with the skin irritations -- ask at your local pet food store. Apply Neosporin to the irritated skin patches to soothe and heal them.
The large bag of dog food (30#) lasts us about 2 1/2 months, feeding 1 1/2 cups twice a day.

Blue does have a fairly small kibble, and if you get the kind for small breeds it is even smaller. And Blue is a HUGE improvement over Science Diet - congrats on making a wise decision! :) I know "vets recommend" SD, but I found out why - SD (or rather their parent company Hill's) teaches the nutrition classes at most vet schools, so they preach their products and even sponsor vets. Their products are full of fillers, though. I hope you have good luck with Blue - I love it and every dog trainer I have come across has recommended it over all other brands.

I feed both of my dogs Blue Buffalo Chicken and Brown Rice-the adult formula. I had my concerns prior to feeding them the same food as I was worried about the size of the food for the smaller dog. This has not been an issue once since we have started using Blue Buffalo. They both love it and it is easy for me to just buy one product.

I use whatever the smallest and pickiest eats for all of my guys except where age difference is important. My 7 year olds and above eat senior. You need to start with small bags of Blue to discover which they will eat. Then I just add a little yogurt and a tblspoon or 2 of a stew I make for them. I work at an animal (hospice) sanctuary and we make a stew of 1 lb hamburger, 2 med sweet potatoes, a package or large bunch of greens(personally mine like spinach), Braggs Amino Acids 4 squirts, 1/2 cup of basamati or brown rice, 3/4 cup of rolled oats, eight eggs mied up and cook in a crock pot for 5 to 6 hours on low.

Blue Diamond is actually the folks who package walnuts and other assorted "human" treats. This is Blue Buffalo. That said.... If your shepard is 1-6 years old and active, I would say the Large Breed Chicken and Brown Rice would be a good choice. If you have a very active dog, you might look at Large Breed Wilderness. It depends on your dog's age, activity level, tolerance of meat sources, allergies and so forth. Stop in at Petco and the staff should be able to guide you to your best pick.

I have a 14.5 year old lab mix that needs to put some weight on. The past few years she has lost over 10 lbs. even though I have increased her food.

The vet said to feed her as much as she will eat. She has actually gotten quite picky in her old age. She likes the Blue food that I recently had to start giving my border lab mix but it is healthy weight as she needs to lose 20 lbs. . So, which kind is good for helping my senior's muscles and to put some weight on her? I also give her glucosamine.

Need to get her on the senior brand of Bllue and there are canned foods high in calories that we hae used temporarily to put weight on. I don't know if Blue has a high calorie (since I just Add a little yougurt and a homemade stew), but at the animal sanctuary (Hospice) we wil use EVO which our homeopathic Vet recommended. Your vet should know of high calorie canned. Then we move them back gradually to their primary food when we've reached a good weight. Don't want too much weight because of all the skeletal issues for the old guys. And dogs need 1500 mg of the glucosamine a day. I use people brands with the chronditin and MSM included and give it in favorite canned food as a treat (give the pill buried in the food a spoon). I would also consider getting Dr. Pitcairn's Natural Health for Dogs and Cats Book and The Complete Holistic Dog Book by Jan Allegretti and Katy Sommers, DVM. Investigate getting a homeopathic vet reference too.

Try adding some wet food (my dogs love Wilderness because it is mostly meat). Sometimes adding puppy food is helpful with weight loss in a senior dog. You might also consider Wilderness Senior which is an excellent grain free food that might be more efficient for your lab for adding weight. BTW- It's not unusual for an "experienced" dog to loose some muscle mass as they age.

I recently had to change my dog's food. Typically, I mix his previous food with the new food over numerous days to prevent upset, but he had to go off his old food quickly due to gas. So, after having him on a homemade diet for a week, I chose Holistic Select because of it's digestive ingredients. It went very well. However, I bought a bag just big enough to test it for about a week, to be sure. Has been a very good choice for him.

I have never used blue before. But, I know that most dogs love it! You should put a little bit in a bowl and put one cup then the next day see if there is less then a cup. If there is still a cup put can food in with the dog food and she should eat it really good.

Transitioning dogs to a different and healthy food is an adjustment period, I believe that this is not an usual side affect. Give it 3-4 days you should notice a happier healther dog. It worked out for my dog that had the same reaction when I changed to this dog food.

Puppies are like human babies. You can't completely change a food all at once because their digestive systems are immature and they get upset stomachs and diarrhea.

Mix some of both foods and gradually make the switch. Keep a close eye because you don't want the puppy to get dehydrated from the diarrhea.

This dog food has very little additives and brown rice is suppose to be healthy for diabetes. So after consulting your vet, I believe that this dog food would be just what you dogs needs.

size of kibble in adult blue

My one dog eats too quickly. I have a dish that is supposed to slow down the speed…nothing slows him dow. Larger kibbles work better.

Hi, Dandra--

We have pugs & they tend to try and practically inhale their food (you would think with their short snouts they wouldn't). We were so concerned about them choking that we started soaking their dry kibble in hot water for a half an hour. The soft kibble keeps them from gagging, and they seem to enjoy it that way. We give them dental toys to keep the tartar down on their teeth. You may want to try the Royal Canin Adult Dry for Medium or Large dogs. The 30-pound bag is about the same price as Blue. The kibble is a goodly size. We've tried the slow down dishes, too, to no avail. Feeding them 2X a day has helped a little bit, too.

Question

My Cavapoo (15lbs) is almost a year and I need to switch her food to adult.

I have always used Blue Buffalo but I don't know what flavor to get and I like the ideal of a grain free food as it helps with allergies according to the website info. I was also looking at the Basic brand. I like the info on the turkey and rice with oatmeal and veggies, and they have a beef flavor. But they only have one with beef in it so I don't know if its not a seller or what. I also saw one with lamb and brown rice. Any help will be appreciated. I do get my food from petco so I can check the expiration date and I get deals all the time. You always have to mix their old food with the newt food to transform their systems to the new food. My maltese became very sick when I tried Evo and did not mix the old with the new and the vet bill was $300.

Switching the food is all based on your dog and his/her preference. All of my dogs loved Blue Buffalo, but the protein/fat content was too much for one and it gave her constant diarrhea. So, we had to switch brands. During the process we discovered that none of the dogs like food with sweet potato in it, so all of those were scratched off the list. PetCo will exchange food if it doesn't work for your dog. So, I recommend buying a small bag and getting a bigger one later once you know it's one he/she will like and can tolerate.

I have used this brand of dog food as it is a great food and requires a lot less for them to eat. I use only 1/4 cup with a little water added to enhance the smell, soften and expand the food before they begin eating thus filling her up better. Otherwise, if you feed too much, they will put on weight!! I absolutely feed only the dog food, veggie treats, and dentastix for rewarding her with training. For LOVE.....only hugs and kisses, and play time.

Check with your VET or HUMANE SOCIETY for diabetic issues.
