Product Overview

Blue Buffalo Basics Turkey and Potato Recipe Canned Dog Food claims that the ingredients your pet doesn’t eat are as important as the ones he does. They put their “True Blue Promise” on every package—they promise their recipe has no wheat, dairy, corn, eggs, or soy—all which can cause allergies and digestive troubles in canines. They strive to provide foods that your pet will love to eat while making them rich in nutrients that will give them a long and happy life.

Blue Buffalo has another claim to fame because of their LifeSource Bits®, which is the smaller dark-colored kibble available in their dry foods only. They claim these bits contain a specific blend of crucial vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants that have been selected because of their nutritional superiority maintaining optimum health at every stage of your pet’s life. The antioxidants help to fight free radical damage associated with heart disease, cancer and aging in animals as well as humans. In manufacturing their LifeSource Bits, the use a process they call “cold-formed” to preserve the strength and quality of these nutrients. The cold-formed process allows for processing at lower temperatures — thereby sustaining the integrity of the vitamins and nutrients lost in high-heat processing. Blue Buffalo Basics Turkey and Potato Recipe Canned Dog Food is manufactured in the USA.
