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 have been feeding my Dobie, Max, various types of Blue Buffalo dry and canned dog food. I thought I would try this stew to give Max a change of pace. However, just like with the other Blue Buffalo food I first put some dry food into his bowl and topped it off with the stew. He inhaled the lot in record breaking time. Yet another Blue Buffalo item for his menu.
I have written several reviews in praise of Blue Buffalo food which is the only brand of food I trust for Max. Frankly, I am running out of words of praise. I am thankful that there is a company such as Blue Buffalo that does not use any ingredients from China and provides top quality and safe food that I can feed to Max. My other reviews contain more information about my experiences with dog food but the bottom line is that Max will be fed Blue Buffalo. Case closed.
Here's my dog enjoying Blue's Stew Hearty Beef Stew in real time. Don't blink cause ya might miss it ; By the way, I know my 130# dog makes it look like there isn't much in a serving, but it's a 12 1/2 oz can similar in size to what you'd find in the grocery store for humans. I've never bought wet dog food before, as it's never looked or SMELLED like something I'd want to have in my house, let alone feed my dog. I've been buying various flavors of Blue Buffalo brand kibble for my aging dog for the past couple of years. I think it's really helped him stay as active and fit as he is. He always had a rather sensitive system, and Blue Buffalo foods do not seem to cause him any digestive issues. This is our first try of their wet food, and based on his reaction, we'll be back to sample the other flavors!
The Dogfoodadvisor site gives it 5 stars. Here's the ingredient list:
Our dog absolutely loves this brand Blue Buffalo Beef Stew canned food. It has generous vegetables and beef chunks in it.It does not have an odor like cheap dog foods when you open the can...Since putting our cats and dog on Blue Buffalo foods, they are much leaner, satisfied and do not have a "dog smell" or stinky cat litter....They are soooo much healthier..The cats are also on Blue Buffalo canned and dry food, and our dog eats the dry food for puppies as well. It seems a little pricey to some, but like I have explained in the 9 months our animals have been on it the cats lost a lot of the extra weight they were carrying, one is 13,12, 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 years old. The older ones have much more energy and play more with the younger ones. The dog is lean and fast.He is almost 1 year old, shepherd & husky mix and american bulldog, and he weighs about 50 1bs. They all don't eat as much food, and it is really cheaper in the long run. As we were buying more of the cheap canned & dry food, altogether, than we buy now.
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.
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.
Figured I'd give the Blue Buffalo Blue's Stew a try. Big mistake. The beef gave one of our dogs diarrhea so bad she went in the kitchen...and the living room...AND the office. The other one managed to make it outdoors; but still...
Never buying this stuff again; and I will be leery about purchasing any Blue Buffalo product from now on.

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.
