One thought on “Blue Buffalo Adult Lamb and Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food

  1. I have had my dog, a chihuahua-9 lbs on Taste of the Wild dry dog food, adult formula, she is 2 yrs old…then switched to the ‘puppy formula’ because of the ‘smaller bites” but she has gained 3 lbs since Sept. I give her free range eating….Today my Vet told me she wants her weight back down to 9 lbs, because my chihuahua has some knee issues. I have heard more than once, people praise Blue Buffalo on helping their dog thats had ‘hip displasia’. Even if I bought your smallest bagof food would last her a long time, and what if she won’t eat it? I would be losing money. I don’t mind paying the price but I am wondering if I could get a SAMPLE of your brand. I will pay for a sample + shipping. Thank you… Ms Walker
