BLUE Buffalo Kitten Food Review

Kitten food is specifically designed to support growing cats - these products are formulated to contain more calories, protein, and fat than their adult food counterparts. Kitten food is designed to support a still-developing digestive system, and to support the kitten's active playful lifestyle!

Despite these differences, however, the same principles apply when evaluating kitten food as adult cat food. Kitten foods made with quality protein sources and without cheap fillers, and that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates, are a solid indicator of a kitten food's quality -- same as it is for adult cat food! CatFoodDB's review system, based on the products published guaranteed analysis and ingredient lists, is therefore also uniquely positioned to evaluate kitten food as well!

BLUE Buffalo Veterinary Diets

Typically available through your veterinarian, BLUE Buffalo's Veterinary Diets are each formulated to assist with a specific medical condition. As a result, its ingredient and nutritional composition is highly specialized, and comparing these products to general nutrition cat food products is not recommended as the products serve different purposes. The scores for veterinary diets are not an indication of the product's ability to address its indicated purpose. We've included them here for informational purposes only.
