Most of the reviews for Blue Buffalo dog food are positive due to the high quality of the ingredients that are in the formulas. The formulas are popular among dogs, and do not seem to cause some of the stomach problems that often occur with some popular high-quality dog foods. Many dog owners who use the Blue Buffalo dog food brand claim that they have observed a significant boost of energy in their pets and a decrease in the occurrence of digestive problems. Their pets’ coats have become noticeably glossier, while their skin has remained healthy and protected against seasonal itching and allergies. Pet owners whose dogs habitually suffered from skin allergies also reported a favorable decrease in the onset of allergic reactions after they switched from their old dog food to Blue Buffalo dog food. One thing to keep in mind though, is that Blue Buffalo dog food is rich in Vitamin D which may prove to be a bit too rich for a dog with a sensitive stomach.
