Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula was created for the health and well-being of dogs. All formulas start with real meat, whole grains, garden veggies and fruit, plus added LifeSource Bits, a precise blend of nutrients that have been enhanced with a Super 7 package of antioxidant-rich ingredients. This Adult Fish & Brown Rice Recipe features delicious, protein-rich deboned whitefish and other natural ingredients for a healthy meal your dog will love.

Formulated for the health and well-being of dogs, BLUE Life Protection Formula is made with the finest natural ingredients and features:

  • Delicious, protein-rich Whitefish
  • Wholesome whole grains, garden veggies and fruit
  • NO chicken (or poultry) by-product meals
  • NO corn, wheat or soy
  • NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives

BLUE LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists that support:

  • Immune system health
  • Life stage requirements
  • Healthy oxidative balance

And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat — the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.

Different Opinion
December 23, 2014
Contrary to "Concerned Doggie Mom", I love this product. Not necessarily the Fish & Sweet Potato, but Blue Buffalo in general. My border collie is 5 years old now, and has always suffered from sever seasonal allergies. She would normally receive shots from the vet twice a year (when we see major seasonal changes) to keep her itching under control.

I live on the beach so I know the salt water and sand isn't easy on her skin either. My vet suggested I change her food to something more natural as her allergies were a year round occurrence, but worsened during our season changes. It's hard to find the time to cook chicken and rice for her, so this brand was recommended to me.

I will say, it did take somewhere between 6 months to 1 year for me to really notice a change. I do give her a Benadryl with each Blue Buffalo meal, morning and night, which keeps her allergies under control year round now. She has been eating this brand for almost two years now, and I see a significant change in her skin. It does take awhile to get the full effect, and it is more pricey, but if your dog has skin problem, I defiantly recommend this.

VERY BAD. Please Read!
August 30, 2011
My dogs had mild seasonal allergies and are starting to age (beagle/pit mix 13 years and border terrier mix 7 years). My vet suggested that maybe I switch to holistic food. I thought that it would be good since it's just healthier for them all around. So several months later I started reading up on the brands I had heard before (Blue, Natura, Eagle Pack, etc.). Most of my searching was on sites like, at that time I didn't know that most websites are biased and enhance certain brands! After a couple days of reading and seeing commercials and receiving a $5 off coupon I decided on Blue Buffalo. Well I gradually and slowly switched as directed mixing the new food with their reg. food (Iams ProActive, which I have never had problems with). First I noticed their stool became softer, I didn't do anything because I thought that might be normal due to the change in food. Then they started having terrible smelling gas. Then the loose stool turned into diarrhea, and finally when I had completely switched my dogs started throwing up in the mornings. After this they started displaying a disinterest in the food and didn't want to eat it. First the vomit was just yellowish mucus and then they were throwing up the food and some blood! I became concerned, took my dogs to the vet and immediately went online to see if others were having problems too. I just typed in "my dogs are throwing up after eating Blue Buffalo", and to my surprise there were tons of blogs and reviews saying the same thing and much worse. I went to the Consumer Reports site and felt sick after reading the reviews on Blue Buffalo. It is NOT what I thought it was and there is a lot of false advertisement on this big brand. There are ingredients in this food that are inferior and extremely high levels of certain vitamins can become toxic at those levels for your pet. They also use other very bad hidden ingredients to preserve that even big shelf brands aren't allowed to use. I just wanted to warn anyone thinking of using this terrible brand, it might be okay for some dogs but it is deadly and costly after going to the vet for others. I did more research with un-biased non advertising sites and switched cold turkey (which I hated to do but there was no other option) to Acana. I found absolutely nothing negative about Champion brands Acana and Orijen. My dogs immediately became more interested in their food and all bad symptoms stopped after the new food was processed. Their stool is hard and smaller with this food. I don't know which holistic food you will decide to choose for your loved one, but be wary of Blue Buffalo. They have had several recalls as well.
