"Please include my own testimonial in your testimonial section. I started using blue after my boyfriend became a pet food representative for the company. The valuable nutritional information he learned through his job inspired me to research pet nutrition myself, and I was horrified to learn that I was feeding my pets the fast food of the dog world. I quickly switched my old German shepherd Brigitta to BLUE. She died some months later of old age, but I had never seen her coat as vibrant as it had been before her departure. She didn't bite her paws anymore either! A few months after she died, our family adopted a senior German shepherd mix from the animal shelter and named him Magellan. His coat was dry and flakey. They had been feeding him a different brand, and I suspected that he may have had a food allergy. He's been on the BLUE Fish and Sweet Potato now for a couple of months, and his coat is absolutely beautiful! I don't see him biting as much, and he has more energy than ever. I am a dog groomer and recommend BLUE to everyone I meet!"
"Hi! I do know *exactly* what is in my dog Rose's food. Why? Because I make her food myself using quality cuts of meat mixed with whole grains and vegetables. Never any corn or wheat because my dog is allergic to them. Yesterday I was at the pet store in Roseville, MI with Rose looking for treats made with quality ingredients to add a little variety to her diet and I met a representative for your company. I thought she was a sales clerk and told her I didn't need any help because I really didn't expect to find what I was looking for. When she told me about your company's products, and how they are made from the same ingredients I use, I was blown away! Rose has been eating home cooked meals for a couple of years and I don't think she would willingly go back to eating dry food, but I will buy your canned food to keep on hand for those busy weeks when I just don't have time to cook. And I will make sure I always keep some of your biscuits on hand. We bought the Bacon Egg and Cheese biscuits yesterday and she just *loves* them! I'm really glad that there is a company out there that really cares about animals! Keep up the outstanding work!"
"Thanks, for a great product. My 16lb. black Pug, Crick, had idiopathic seizures every few weeks. The vet suggested food allergies might be a contributing factor. Now Crick, during the past 9 months, has had 3 seizures. She has become a calm, beautiful young adult. She doesn't seem stressed and her coat shields less (pugs shed a lot!)."
"I started using Blue Buffalo on the recommendation of a neighbor whose dog had a skin allergy. He told me two weeks after he started feeding his dog BLUE, her skin allergy cleared up and her hair started growing back. I decided to try Blue Buffalo for my miniature dachshund Lucy who also had a skin allergy and sure enough, within a few weeks, she wasn't itching, the smell was gone and her hair started to grow back. What I hadn't expected was that my other miniature dachshund quit having seizures and the coat on my boxer became shiny and soft. Is this some kind of miracle food??? I can't thank you enough for producing this superior product and for your dedication to our furry family members."
"We have a wonderful 8 yr old, 60 lb mixed breed dog named Abby. She has always had fall allergies. But about 3 yrs ago, they were so intense that she ran from herself to hide from the itching. We had taken her to a Vet and over the next year and a half, spent almost 3000.00 in Vet bills. (For tests, Meds, etc.) All spent with no relief for Abby. Her itching was so bad she was sitting in the gravel driveway and scooting and spinning. She, over that year and half, had worn off all of her hair on her backside, back legs and tail. My sister-in-law suggested a "different" holistic dog food. So I went to the closest Pet Store and looked for "that" brand. They didn't carry it so the clerk told me about Blue Buffalo. I thought, well, let's try it...And I am so glad I did. I took home my valuable purchase, threw away all of Abby's pills and "old" food. Within 1 1/2 weeks of starting Abby on Blue Buffalo, her hair started growing back, her itching completely stopped and she wanted to play catch again. The sparkle in her eyes came back. She has now been on Blue Buffalo for a year and what a difference. She has more energy than ever, her coat is so full and shiny and she actually asks for dinner at around 5:00 every day. I mix 1/3 can Blue Buffalo with her dry food and a small amount of water. During the day, I give her Blue Buffalo Treats. Before BLUE, she was always hungry. But now, she's full and content. I now have my 3 cats on Blue. The shedding almost completely stopped and they don't seem to be so "Lazy". The ONLY colors in My home are a combination of Red, yellow and green. My pet food is ALL BLUE.... Thank you so much for ENRICHING my pets lives. I Thank You and they Thank You..."

"I tried your food after seeing it in the pet store on display. It wasn't featured or anything, but I'd been looking for something that I considered a good healthy food that fit within my budget. Your packages explained the food quite well, so I bought a small bag and brought it home. Cali is far from a picky eater, but she absolutely adores your food. She has repeatedly turned down her former favorite canned foods, demanding her dry food be replenished instead. (I don't keep her bowl full when I am home because I also have dogs who are absolute PIGS about eating Cali's food.) Cali now has me trained, if she is repeatedly insisting on my attention towards her feeding area, it's not because she wants some canned food, it's because she wants more dry! I am seriously impressed with the food, and although she's only been eating it for a week, I am anticipating she keeps her normally slick & shiny coat as well."
"I have 2 puppies, Maggie and Emmie. Maggie is 22mos and is very particular. I recently purchased your Apple/yogurt dog biscuits for Emmie who is 4mos old. I knew Emmie would love them but thought for sure that Maggie would not eat them. But surprise....she loved them! I couldn't believe it because she usually turns her head when it comes to anything other than meat flavored. I will continue buying them for both dogs. Thank you"
"I have a 17 month old dachshund named Decoda. Recently Decoda was having seizures. We went to the pet store and there was one of your representatives there, who was a wonderful young man, who explained to us about your food. We bought a bag and brought it home and ever since then Decoda has not had a seizure. We are going on over a month. I want to thank you so much for your food. We have been looking all over trying to find something like this. We have 4 other dogs and 4 cats and they have all been switched to this food. Thank you again you have saved our little one."
"I am SO GLAD to see your canned foods for my dogs on the shelves again! My babies are 16 years old, and I attribute that not only to their determination, but your good food. This really helped both my dogs after they had had back surgery and developed finicky appetites. Now they look forward to dry and "gooey" food, and I know they are getting the best I can give them. Thanks a million!"

"We started using BLUE about two months ago for our Shih Tzu puppy Wicket. I had researched puppy foods and found Blue to be the only 100% natural pet food mix. Wicket loves this food. Wicket's coat is growing in with such a beautiful shine and softness; you just can't help but touch and pet him. Everyone comments on his beautiful coat. Thank goodness, we found BLUE before we adopted our Wicket. We are lucky; After the recent dog food scare, we knew we made the right choice. Thank you, Thank you."
"We have 3 dogs and switched to Blue Buffalo about three months ago and can not believe the change! Our oldest a 15 year old Pomeranian has regained her luxurious coat it feels like cotton! The middle boy is a mutt but his coat is so soft, and a new baby, a Yorkie, has so much energy and her coat is soft and shinny. All of their teeth have gone from a yellow to bright white and everyone's energy has gone up. We are so thankful that there is a dog food company out there that actually cares what goes in their food and is helping us pet parents to feed our babies the best we can. We can't say thank you enough, keep up the good work!"
"I began to use Blue about 6 months ago for my lab mix. Her bowels were very loose, and within 2 weeks of eating Blue, she began to have one movement a day — and a solid one at that! Her coat is much shinier and thicker, and her demeanor is much more upbeat. Thank you so much for your product, Blue Buffalo!"
"We have three Labs. We used to feed them a leading vet-recommended brand of food. We made homemade chicken broth to pour on it to make it palatable to them. After the tainted-pet-food scare, I looked at the ingredients in every dog food brand in the store. BLUE seemed the most wholesome and natural choice. For the first time in his 12 years, Carlos will eat dry dog food without added broth, 8-year-old Lucy with the bad hip dysphasia runs around more, and three-year old Banjo's allergies are finally under control! Thank you."
"We just started using BLUE and it is great! Our orange tabby mix Allie loves it! She gobbles some down then comes back for more. We also noticed that none of the other brands were as healthy because Allie was getting fat and now she is skinny. Even though she still acts like a pig."

"I have four cats: 3 adults & one kitten, who all live indoors. I began feeding them Blue "Kitten" and "Lite" formulas about a month ago. Before then, 2 of my adult cats would vomit fairly often. Since they began eating Blue's formulas, not one vomiting episode has occurred!!! Blue is far superior, so the extra in cost is well worth it, as my "babies" deserve THE BEST CAT FOOD. Thanks, Blue!!!"
"After an apparently traumatic experience with dog-sitting our neighbor's pup, our 12-year-old cat, Ariel, seemed to be losing her health. She was licking off her fur (vet said it was a nervous habit developed), losing weight, sleeping a LOT, and had developed an allergy to the sun. A shot of cortisone seemed to help temporarily but a few months later she acquired a chronic infection in her paw that ended up requiring surgery. A few months after surgery we found Blue Buffalo cat food and decided to give it to her. Within 6 weeks her fur had re-grown into a lush, silky coat and Ariel's energy level was back to what it was when she was a much younger kitty. We found her lounging in the branches of the magnolia tree! Coincidentally, Ariel's (human) mama was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder around this same time, and in addition to other therapies, fish oil was recommended as a preventative measure. We noticed that cold-water fish and fish oil was a predominant ingredient in Ariel's Blue Buffalo food! Hopefully it is as effective on mama as it is on kitty!"
"A few months ago, I received two female Maine coon, calico which I had placed about five years ago. As a breeder my contract stated if for any reason, they could not keep them, they were to be returned to myself. Well the woman came down with cancer. About May I called her, because she was worried about the cats. Her Husband stated after she died, he was going take the cat to the shelter. So now I have them. About the middle of September, the one females became ill, According to the vet, she had a fatty liver tissue. She had a feeding tube inserted, and had to be fed some AD mixed with milk thistle along with Ursodial, and Clavamox.. She started to recover, when her litter sister came down with the same thing and went through the same treatment. We found out after that they were fed the Iams that was recalled. After several treatments, we are cutting out the AS. In fact both females like the Blue Spa canned, Chicken, Tuna and Salmon Entrees. The second female pulled her feeding tube out Friday, Both now demand the feeding of your can food about every two hours, the vets are amazed, at the recovery. Your food is the best. We have been feeding the dry cat food, and the dry dog food to our other animal. They love it!"
"I was introduced to your product at my local pet store in Fairfax VA. I was about to buy my original brand of food. Since the store was not permitted to sell this brand without a prescription from my veterinarian I needed to find something comparable and more cost effective. My primary concern was my cat Ana who has been diagnosed with IBS. Before starting her on your product nothing could control her symptoms. Well you kind salesperson talked to me about Blue Spa Select and I was willing to give it a try. Instant success, Ana has shown no symptoms of recurring IBS, all of my other cats love your product and it is much easier on "Mom's" pocket book as well. We are now into our third large bag and all is well. The cats and I are so grateful and happy that we were able to find food that would satisfy all. All of the cats are indoor cats, and two are overweight, but with controlled portions I do believe that even Zach and Timothy will improve loosing some of their weight. Once again I praise you for creating this product, not only is it the healthiest on the market, it is well suited for the entire pride that allows their mother and father, that would be the humans that live in the house, to continue to live here. Many thanks from all of us"
"I just wanted to drop you all a line to say a HUGE thank you for your product. When we first got our great dane, he had very loose stools all the time. His coat wasn't the greatest, nor was he putting on any weight. One day I saw an advertisement for Blue and was skeptical, but none the less after visiting your website I decided to look for myself. The next day I was in PetSmart and carrying around a small bag of Blue adult formula for large breed dogs on my arm as I compared that bag to EVERY bag of dog food in the store. My wife thought I was nuts, as well as some of the other customers. After visiting every bag, I decided to try Blue. Within a week, the stools were solid and within the month his coat was great and so soft, as well as some meat on his bones. Thank you again for such a great brand of food."

"A few months ago, we adopted a Great Pyrenees puppy. From the time we brought her home, she would just pick at her food and wasn't gaining weight like she should. She had a general disinterest in eating. After doing research on different dog foods, we decided to switch her food to Blue Buffalo Large Breed. The first bowl that was placed in front of her was scarfed up immediately and she sat there looking at us for more. Now, at 6 months old, she has no problems in eating, enjoys her food, and is gaining weight steadily. She is healthy and happy. Thank you for your wonderful food!

"My 2 dogs and my cat love blue. I know this is a wonderful product because I had a dog that wouldn't eat dog food for 3 years. I was getting worried because everyday he would want something different or not eat at all. I gave him Blue dog food and he waits for his food everyday. Thank You for making my dog happier and healthier."
"I just wanted to give you some product feedback. I live alone - with 5 beagles, I have tried most every brand out there. I went into a local petsmart - and you folks had a table there with someone handing out coupons. I bought a small bag - dogs loved it - I loved what I read on the package. One of the Dogs recently had a really bad allergic reaction - tried every food available - I ended up hand feeding him a raw diet until he was able to eat regular food again. Putting him back on the same old food (Nutro - Max - the natural one) - he started to relapse - quit eating. To this day he will only eat dry Blue (he will actually leave a whole bowl full of the other food untouched - dogs know things...) and some canned foods. As I learned about his issues and what dog food generally has in it and seeing some allergic issues in the other dogs (maybe the wheat I guess?) I switched over to just blue. In the long run it is the cheapest prevention I can buy. And the dogs like it too. So thanks - just wanted to let you know the table crusades definitely work. thanks for the great product - please keep it up - and why not offer an Organic line of foods in the future - I don't eat non-organics - like you say I really want to feed the dogs the same way. Warmest regards - and Dog bones all round."

"When our vet said we had to start our German Shepherd, on shots for allergies that were making his life a misery, we were so upset. We couldn't afford the constant expense! In desperation we researched, and found many common allergies are caused by ingredients in what we thought was high-end food (one on your "comparisons" list). We compared and switched him to Blue Buffalo for Large breeds, and in about a week he was obviously feeling much better. In a month his skin was no longer red and his fur was growing back in thick and shiny. In three months he was back to his old happy self, with no medicine except the great nutrition in Blue Buffalo. And judging by how fast his bowl is empty, he really likes the taste! We have since switched all our animals (another dog and 2 cats) to Blue, and they are all fantastic!. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
"I have four doxies. I started feeding them your food a few weeks ago. Already I have noticed a change in their coats. They are soft and shiny, and they are full of energy. They used to get sick to their stomachs and that hasn't happened since I started feeding them your food. Thanks for a great product. I will continue to buy your food."
I was introduced to your product at my local Petsmart in Fairfax VA. I was about to buy my original brand of food which would have been Science Diet Prescription. Since the store was not permitted to sell this brand without a prescription from my veterinarian I needed to find something comparable and more cost effective. My primary concern was my cat who has been diagnosed with IBS. Before starting her on your product nothing could control her symptoms other than SD DD. Well you kind salesperson talked to me about Blue Star Spa and I was willing to give it a try. Instant success, my cat has shown no symptoms of recurring IBS, all of my other cats love your product and it is much easier on "Mom's" pocket book as well. We are now into our third large bag and all is well. The cats and I are so grateful and happy that we were able to find food that would satisfy all.

"My dog and I want to thank you so much. You saved his life. My Dog is an 11 year old Siberian Husky who has always had some problems with digestion. In the last 2 years, his diarrhea had been so bad and constant, that the vet advised putting him to sleep. He was unable to digest or get any benefit from his food. I was cooking ground lamb and brown rice for him every day for over 3 years, but still his weight had slipped to under 30 lbs and he was always lethargic and sad. I found your website and started adding your fish and potato diet to his food and I cannot believe the change in this old guy! He is now on your food and the brown rice and he is doing wonderfully. He has cancer and arthritis, but you wouldn't know it. Our new vet says that he is doing well and appears to be quite spry for an elderly gentleman. I am thankful to have my best friend with me to talk to and play with and keep me warm in Illinois. I am truly appreciative to you and your research."
