It all started with an Airedale named Blue.
The Blue Buffalo Story
When their dog, Blue, was diagnosed with cancer, Bill Bishop and his sons sought out the best pet food possible for their boy. Unable to find a natural option with high-quality ingredients, they created their own. With Blue Buffalo, they began to feed Blue like family — and have since inspired millions of Pet Parents to do the same.
Our nutrition philosophy was based on a promise.
Why Choose BLUE?
Our promise to feed Blue the best food possible evolved into a whole new way of feeding pets. Healthy ingredients aren’t just a trend for us; they’re a part of our history. Since we started in 2003, we’ve always used high-quality natural ingredients with real meat first. Never any corn, wheat, or soy. And no poultry by-product meals. It’s been that way since day one. And it always will be.Explore Our Philosophy
