Beef Recipe

Formulated especially for the unique needs of small breed dogs, BLUE Life Protection Formula for Small Breed Dogs is made with healthy, natural ingredients starting with real beef plus fruits, veggies, and wholesome whole grains. This dry dog food from Blue Buffalo will satisfy your small dog’s higher energy needs with an ideal balance of protein and carbohydrates.

Available in 2.2, 2.7, 4.5, & 6.8 kg bags.

Exclusive Antioxidant-Rich LifeSource Bits

BLUE's exclusive LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals carefully selected by veterinarians and animal nutritionists that help support:

  • Immune system health
  • Life stage requirements
  • Healthy oxidative balance

And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat — the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.
