    I have tried all kinds of products promising no chicken in their variety of foods. My older dog is allergic to chicken and can not tolerate any dog food made with chicken or poutry by-products or poutry fat. This is the first product that I have seen where my dog has actually improved in health and attitude. Blue Buffalo is small bites which is great for older dogs and acutally delivers what they promise. Since I started using this product (I use the lamb and rice)I noticed a big change. Her coat is great, no more bladder infections, attitude has certainly changed and I see her generally feeling better. Although I feel the price is high, it is worth it. I now feel all the dogs Blue Buffalo.

    Blue buffalo has been good for our dogs. I got it because of a friend who recommended it for the breed.

    It's high in protein and vegetables and low on grains which is supposedly good for the dog . The lamb is supposed to keep the grass burning down to a minimum.

    My vet questions whether it's actually a better food than the name brands since it's not certified like the other ones are. I hope this is something Blue Buffalo changes in the future.

    Comments about Blue Buffalo Adult Life Protection Formula Lamb & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food:

    I bought this dog food as a test run switching from ACANA, which seems to be a little bit more expensive and less accessible where I am living. So far, so good! This food looks a little more dry; however my dog does not notice!

    When you first open the package that the food comes in,the aroma coming out is pleasant . The lamb smell is strong, the way Rocky likes his food. He loves the brand and flavor. We first purchased this particular dog food at the insistence of Laura of" Pet Peeves" who spoke highly of it and said her dog loved itThe food has great nutrition ,is excellent for our dog and sell worth the few extra cents per meal it cost us to use this dog food.

      Comments about Blue Buffalo Adult Life Protection Formula Lamb & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food:

      My Lab loves his chow. He eats well, is at a perfect weight and very little droppings to pick up in backyard. Yes BB products are a little pricey but what you get in return is well worth it. When it comes to the health of my 4 legged kid price is not part of the equation. Blue Buffalo products are wonderful. Thank you BB for helping to keep my fury child healthy.

      Comments about Blue Buffalo Adult Life Protection Formula Lamb & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food:

      My 2 labs, ages 8yr and 6mth were on Pure Balance. While they ate it to start, they didn't seem too enthused. After my old girl got a hot spot for the first time, I decided to give BB lamb a try. They're back to happily eating their food, and look for more rather than leaving some sit all day. Their coats are so shiny and soft, the 8yo has not been having issues with her ears any more, and she has so much more energy. My pup has a bit of gas, but less stool and firmer. Easier to clean up after. Just a tad expensive, but good food isn't cheap, and cheap food isn't good. Overall, we all love it.

      My dogs have eaten this product with no problem. It sounds like it should be real good for them, but I could not give it 5 stars because I have been reading that there are ingredients in there that they don't list. If I find out they have changed that, I will go back to buying it.
