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.
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.
I purchased Blue's Stew hearty beef stew twice. The first time I was hoping the next batch would have some vegetables in the can. I was hard pressed to find a 1/4" piece or carrot or a few peas. Will not purchase again.
Our product is dependant on the natural ingredients we use so it is possible to see the fat separate out, especially when refrigerated. We would be more than happy to speak with you regarding your experience. Please reach out to us at (800) 919-2833. Thanks - Blue Buffalo Co.
5 of the 12 cans were badly dented - enough that I won't feed them to my dogs. Further, the dented cans were randomly placed so that it wasn't a case of the case being dropped, it was as if 5 dented cans had been placed in the case. I have ordered Purina and Newman's canned dog food from Amazon and not had any problems. Even if my dogs love the seven remaining cans I probably won't be ordering Blue Buffalo again as factoring in the waste of the damaged cans comes close to doubling the price.
The food is great. Has been the food of choice for our two dogs for some time. Several cans were dented, most likely during delivery. When you stack the cases on thier side as was done here, the cans shift allowing the rim of one can can dig into the side of the next can, leaving a significant dent. If you stack them on top of each other, the cans stay even and this does not happen.
