Comments about Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Chicken & Brown Rice Large Breed Senior Dry Dog Food:

Bear is a nine year old German Shepard/Husky/Rott mix and we have tried several different foods over the years. We tried Eukanuba, Science Diet, Iams and home cooked meals. Bear did not like the Eukanuba or the science diet. She was picky about her Iams after a month or so and it seemed to be causing her some skin and ear discomfort. She was also gaining a lot of weight. Home cooked meals were great for everyone except my bank account. Then I decided to try Blue Buffalo. She has been eating Blue Buffalo Senior for almost a year now and it has been the best bagged food. Last New year's she was acting crazy and jumped off my back deck and partially tore her ACL. With the help of the vet's laser treatments and a lot of TLC Bear is now putting 90% of her weight on her bad leg. I believe that Blue Buffalo's senior dog food was imperative in helping Bear through her healing process by providing additional vitamins, minerals and proteins. I do recommend this food to anyone with an older, a large breed, or just any dog; Blue Buffalo is good for dogs in general.

Comments about Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Chicken & Brown Rice Large Breed Senior Dry Dog Food:

We love Blue Buffalo! This food was purchased for our 100 lb, 8-year-old Saint Bernard. I purchased the "Senior" formula because of her advanced age and the problems that tend to arise in old age with large breeds (joint issues, mostly). After discussing it with the veterinarian, though, I think I will switch to a "regular" adult large-breed food. Senior foods are typically lower in fat and calories because most senior dogs aren't as active and tend to gain weight. Our dog has some trouble maintaining her weight on the senior formula, so the extra calories from the "regular" formula should help. I have been feeding her an extra scoop of the senior formula to supplement the calories, but that gets very expensive. I (last week) ordered "Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul Canned Dog Food" from a different website. It's high quality ingredients are a nice supplement to the kibble, and she LOVES it. She's eating and putting on weight at a much better rate now. Overall, we love Blue Buffalo and attribute our dog's long and healthy life to the high-quality ingredients found in this food. It is somewhat more expensive, but I've found we have had no issues with things like bloat or digestive issues (common in large breeds) and the money we've saved on veterinary treatment more than makes up for the cost of good food. Other Saint Bernard owners make multiple trips for surgery to relieve bloat problems over the course of the dog's life, but our Jasmine has been very, very healthy all along!
We order from PetFoodDirect.com because we live in a rural area and the local farm supply doesn't carry this specific variety of food. The price is comparable to what some pay at big pet stores in major cities, and the free shipping makes it a no-brainer!

    My dog seems to like the taste of it. I like that it's all natural. Doesn't seem to help her not pass gas though. Haven't found anything that works well for that yet!
