The Blue buffalo Co. pet foods began when the owner’s dog, ”Blue” began having health problems and issues they wanted to help him with themselves. This caused them to begin serious study in pet health and nutrition — which would one day lead them to manufacture and produce dog and cat food — and ‘Blue Buffalo’ was born! They claim their pet foods are completely nutritious, and have ingredients in their food blends that contain a specific blend of nutrients called LifeSource Bits®. They further claim their foods have no soy, corn wheat, and other allergens.
