Blue Buffalo Cat Food gets our highest rating of five stars. The company works with veterinarians and animal nutritionists to create wholesome pet foods that contain a blend of real meat, garden veggies, and whole grains for a balanced diet. Only the good stuff goes into this food. All of the formulas use meat as the first ingredient, and contain only healthy fats, oils, fiber, and grains. None of the formulas contain animal by-products, corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavors, or artificial colors.
The dry cat food formulas even contain Blue Buffalo’s exclusive LifeSource bits, which are compressed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are ‘cold-formed’ to retain nutrients that would otherwise be lost from cooking. Besides the healthy, holistic, dry and wet cat foods for specific age groups, the Blue Freedom and Blue Wilderness formulas are also grain-free. These are an excellent choice for cats with food allergies, or those that need high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets. As far as premium cat foods go, Blue Buffalo is one of the best brands out there.

Cats with diabetes and weight problems do particularly well on a diet of Blue Buffalo Cat Food.
Many cat owners report that their cats have lost a healthy amount of weight, and have managed to maintain their ideal weights after switching to this food. Other cat owners state that cats that previously had digestion and vomiting problems can eat this food without issue.
Although this food is more expensive than generic brands of cat food, the majority of cat owners say that it is worth the price as it saves money on vet bills in the long run.

The company who makes Blue Buffalo cat food is called Blue Buffalo Company. The Blue Buffalo Company currently has its headquarters located in Wilton, Connecticut. Bill Bishop is the current CEO of Blue Buffalo Company. The company is family owned, and was created when one of the owners’ dogs (who was named Blue) was diagnosed with cancer. The company was created as an effort to make a food formula that was free of harmful environmental toxins.
Blue Buffalo did recall several of their formulas in the 2007 pet food recall, due to contamination with melamine. These formulas were under the “BLUE Spa Select” brand name. Since the recall, Blue Buffalo has removed all of the ingredients in their formulas that were made by “American Nutrition”, the company that added contaminated rice protein to their formulas.
In October of 2010, Blue Buffalo also recalled several formulas due to the formulas possibly containing excessive levels of Vitamin D. These formulas were all in the dry dog food product line.
In order to make sure that your cat’s food is safe, it’s always highly recommended that you check the FDA’s pet food recall website. This will help you to stay updated on the latest pet food recall information.

Blue Buffalo also has a line of organic cat foods, which is under the product name “BLUE Organic”. This formula contains several ingredients that are certified organic.
Blue Buffalo does have a product line that includes a dry cat food formula with “limited ingredients”, which is designed to be fed to cats that have food sensitivities. This formula is under the “BLUE Basics” product name. None of the Blue Buffalo formulas seem to contain either corn or corn gluten meal.
