CatFoodDB: Decoding nutrition labels so you don't have to!
First established in 2002, Blue Buffalo is now owned by General Mills. Manufactured in the US with globally-sourced ingredients, Blue Buffalo cat food products are currently marketed under 6 different sub-brands - BLUE for Cats, BLUE Wilderness, BLUE Basics, BLUE Freedom, BLUE True Solutions, BLUE Kitten and BLUE Natural Veterinary Diet. Blue Buffalo products are sold just about everywhere cat food is sold -- including grocery stores, pet specialty retailers, and many stores online.
Choosing the right food for your cat can be a daunting task. What makes a good cat food? Whose reviews can you trust? Here at CatFoodDB, we generate our brand reviews using our own custom algorithm from the data provided straight from the manufacturer - the product ingredient lists and its published guaranteed analysis. You can find more details about how we do this here: CatFoodDB's Review Process.
Based on our analysis of 115 unique BLUE Buffalo cat food products, BLUE Buffalo is an average overall cat food brand when compared to other products in our database.
Of these 115 BLUE Buffalo products we reviewed:
Based on our analysis of 69 unique BLUE Buffalo wet (canned) cat food products, BLUE Buffalo is a below average wet cat food brand when compared to similar products in our database.
Based on our analysis of 46 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 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!
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.
