Of these 109 BLUE Buffalo products we reviewed:

Based on our analysis of 45 BLUE Buffalo dry (kibble) cat food products, BLUE Buffalo is an average dry cat food brand when compared to similar products in our database. Note that dry foods will almost always rank lower than their wet food counterparts due to the higher carbohydrate content found in most dry pet food.
Kitten food is crafted with the unique needs of growing cats in mind, boasting a higher content of calories, protein, and fat compared to adult cat food. It's tailored to nurture a developing digestive system while fueling the playful, active lifestyle of kittens!
While there are distinct differences, the evaluation principles for kitten and adult cat food remain the same. High-quality kitten food, much like adult food, features superior protein sources and shuns cheap fillers. It typically has a high protein and low carbohydrate profile. CatFoodDB’s review system, leveraging guaranteed analysis and ingredient lists of products, is adept at evaluating the quality of both kitten and adult cat food!
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.
