Gus has nasal sarcoma with not too much time left to live. He quit eating his dry food because the cancer started pushing down onto the roof of his mouth. He ended up losing 10 pounds in 1 week. I got this for him to try and he started eating again! He regained his energy and his immune system started replying to everything better. I am able to hide his pills in this food and he has no clue! He takes 7 capsules and 1 half tablet of meds. Now it’s like any other day for him once more. In a way he has gained a normal life back a bit by not having to have meds shoved down his throat. He looks forward to eating time again. It’s so great! The Beef Stew flavor also doesn’t stink which is great for me.
I purchased this case of dog food on Nov. 7th, 2015 and it had expired in April 2015. None of my 3 dogs would touch it and they love this stuff. That's when I checked the expiration date. No wonder! With real meat in it, it would probably make them sick. Very disappointed with Amazon for selling expired goods.
I mix it in with their dry food and they love it! My daughter tells me that in her Marketing class at college, the professor used dog food as an example of segmentation. She said that when he described the "nutritionist" segment, the description sounded just like me. I plead guilty. I love my Newfies and if something is healthy and tasty like Blue Buffalo, I'm in!
The product arrived in great condition and my puppy loved it.
The only reason why I’m giving it only 2 stars is that shortly after, my vet recommended Itold me to stop feeding my dog Blue Buffalo. Apparently, they refuse to have their food tested to justify their claims...basically there can be anything in the food that isn’t accounted for. I did some research and found it to be true. I don’t want to take that risk so I had to return the batch I ordered.
My dogs love this food. I try to keep them on a good diet and Blue Buffalo has very high ratings. It’s the only food they get besides treats and rewards. They are 9 years and 10 years old and are both healthy and happy, they are also in great shape.
