What's Our Opinion Of Blue Buffalo Dry Food

Blue buffalo cat food ingredients always start off with 2-3 real meat, which is very important when buying any cat food. It is also great to know that they do not use any meat by-products, all cats deserve to eat nutritious protein and not just the left overs.

We like that they try to meet the different needs that cats may have, such as finicky eaters and weight control. However we find that the flavors for the first category, Blue, is very limited, it only comes in chicken for cats and salmon and chicken for adults.

Cats like a variety of flavors such as beef, duck, turkey, fish, so it would be good if they created more flavors, similar to the ones that their wet food has. Our cats were not big fans of the wilderness, in fact they didn't like it at all. However they loved the indoor cat and the adult salmon.

We have read and even have friends who's cats have not responded well to Blue Buffalo cat food , some have switch to Blue basic and their cats have had no problems with that formula,some have simple given their cats the wet food and a different type of hard food and others have completely switch. Blue buffalo cat food is like any other cat product,you have to find and use the product which works best for your cat.

What's Our Opinion Of Blue Buffalo Wet Food

Blue buffalo cat food, canned, comes in a variety of cat friendly flavors. Their ingredients also starts off with real meat and contains vegetables and some healthy whole grains. These cans are filled with gravy that our cats love to lick. Our cats love the healthy gourmet and to our surprise the bistro. They are not fans of the wilderness and didn't like the basic.

The basic has less gravy than the others and the gravy may be less flavorful becauae they just smelt it and walked away. Both the flaked and sliced have little pieces of vegetables that you can see and they lick their lips, the cutest thing to see, after they ate. The price is a bit more expensive than other cans of cat food, but it's a high protein premium cat food that's worth the extra money.

Our Cat's Favorite Flavor (They lick their lips after eating it, yes it's the cutest thing)

Paw Print

Out of a possible five paw prints we give blue buffalo cat food three. It is a product that we think is good and that we like. We liked the fact that their ingredients always start off with real meat and that they do not use meat by-products, but the limited flavors in hard food didn't impress us, as humans we get bored eating the same thing, so do cats. The fact that our cats simply wouldn't eat some of their products, like the basics and ate a bit of the wilderness and then wouldn't eat it again, also brought blue buffalo cat food paw prints down.
