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.
Searched for a food to tempt my 14 year old Sheltie, who was upset with our moving and refused to eat anything. Blue Buffalo ingredients tempted her, once she got a little taste on a spoon, and she would then eat some of it. After the move, she changed completely. Now she dances around me and barks if I take too long preparing her dish. She eats a whole can a day now, and all angst has disappeared. She was on several medications, and is now off all of them and doing just fine. I am overjoyed, because having a pet that was starving herself is no fun, so am delighted that her system loves this food. She went from 25 lbs to 17 in two months, before, and is now back up to 22 lbs.
My dog loves this brand. It comes in a 12 pack though. All the same flavor, and he gets tired of the same thing. So I like to mix them up. Wish you could buy a variety of flavors, instead of all of the same. But, it came well packaged, and pretty quickly. And, I know the brand is better than most, as far as healthy for the dog. The value, compared to pet stores, was very good!
Max, my labradoodle, is 13 and has gotten really picky about eating lately. Have had trouble finding something he'll eat. I add this to chicken I cook for him and he seems to like it. At least he'll eat it some of it and some days will clean his bowl.
I love Blue Buffalo brand of foods. All of our myriad of critters are using it and I have no complaints! We got this specifically so we could medicate our epileptic dog and it's one of the very few things she will eat it in now! She won't even eat cheese or hot dogs to take her meds in! This actually smells wonderful too and looks like something I might eat! So, it's definitely excellent quality.
Way better for your dog than the crap you get at Walmart or Stop & Shop or BJ's. Too bad it's so expensive. I decided to start making my own canned dog food. Dogs love it same cost all natural ingredients.
