Product Summary:

BLUE™ Buffalo Life Protection Formula Small Breed Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food

BLUE™ Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe for dogs is formulated with ingredients chosen specifically to help address their special needs. Dogs love the tasty chicken, and it provides them with essential amino acids they need every day. Hearty whole grains like brown rice, barley, and oats supply the complex carbohydrates that your dog needs for energy. Whole carrots, sweet potatoes, and peas are three of the nutrient-rich vegetables that your dog will get in every bite of BLUE.

LifeSource® Bits contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. Importantly, BLUE LifeSource Bits are "cold-formed" separately from the rest of our kibble to help preserve the potency of the ingredients.

I have tried different dog foods and "Abby" seems to like the Blue Buffalo the best. Abby is a picky eater, however the Blue Buffalo seems to be her favorite.

I have been feeding my dogs this dog food from day one. The dogs love the taste and seem very happy when eating this.
MARTIN M on May 27, 2018
I just got my dog from a rescue station, she is 10 years old and in good health, a picky eater, I have already bought 3 different brands of dog food, she will nibble at the one, like I said a picky eater. After reading about the Buffalo life protection Formula for small breeds, and I know she likes chicken I thought I would give it a try. She is a lovely lady, and I want to keep her that way. I sure hopes she likes it.

MARTIN M on May 27, 2018
Can anyone tell me the approximate size of the kibble? My 3.5 lb Yorkie doesn't like when the kibble bits are too big and won't eat the dry food. Thanks for your help!
monicam on Nov 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have sleeve Pekinese 5 1/2 lbs. this kibble is just their size. Does not upset their tummy either :) This is the smallest kibble I have found. Royal Canin mini Shih Tzu is another very good kibble.
what is the protein, fat and fiber content in gluten free small dog?
