    My 10 year old beagle suffers from Diabetes Insipitus and a finicky pancreus. I needed a dogfood that was low in fat, tasted good(to a Beagle), and was nutricious. Blue's weight control accomplished all three requirements. As a bonus, my Beagle's dry skin and dandriff seems to have gone away. She feels better, is loosing unneeded "chubbiness", and is more active than she was on previous dogfoods. My family raised show dogs (Shelties & Keeshonds) for 30+ years and I recognise a great dogfood when I see it. This is a great dogfood!

    Overview":This food did not help my dog reach his ideal weight. Blue Weight Control is nutrient rich, very low in fat, and uses high-quality protein sources. Unfortunately, Blue Weight Control has 444 calories per cup, which might be okay if my dog were trying to maintain a healthy weight, but he needed to lose weight. Fortunately, Blue Buffalo makes an excellent weight loss food called Blue Longevity, and the adult food has a more reasonable 353 calories per cup.

    Details: My dog weighed 50 lbs. and needed to get to the maximum ideal weight for his breed --44 lbs.-- as determined by my vet and the American Kennel Club. According to several dog nutritionists, the calories a dog should consume to lose weight is computed as follows: (1)Convert his current weight in pounds to kilograms by dividing the pounds by 2.2. For my dog 50 lbs over 2.2= 22.7 (2) Multiply her weight in KG by 30. For my dog 22.7*30 is 681. (3)Add 70. In my dog's case, 681+70=751. This number represents the dog's caloric needs while on a weight loss diet, assuming the dog has no special needs, such as pregnant or whelping, being a puppy, being a toy breed, working, or living outdoors in a cold weather. The formula only is valid if the dog weighs between 5 and 99 pounds. The daily calories computed using this method were only a few calories different from my vet's recommendation, so I think it's pretty valid.

    My dog loves treats, but only 10% of his daily intake--75 calories--may come from treats. The other 90% of his consumption--676 calories-- must come from dog food. The dog food must be nutrient rich, low in fat, and made with high-quality protein, all of which Blue Weight Control provides --deboned chicken is the first . (Beware: some premium dog foods list corn and biproducs as the first 2 ingredients. You ingrediantmay as well feed supermarket brands to get those ingredients.)

    The reason Blue Weight Control was not a good diet food for my dog is that it has 444 calories per cup. To feed him 676 calories of dog food daily, I could only feed him 1.5 cups per day, meaning that each of two meals could only be .75 cups. This quantity is well below the feeding guideline on the bag. My My dog was miserable and begged constantly. He would even lick his empty bowl between meals. I tried feeding him green beans without butter or salt to fill his stomach, but he was not content and eventually turned his nose up at it. He would actually walk over to the bag of dog food, put his paw on it, and look at me while whining softly! Other members of my household snuck food to him because he begged so persistently, and the diet was a failure. My dog ended up actually gaining weight from all the snacks!
    I was happy when I found Blue Longevity adult food. It has 355 per cup. I give my dog 2 cups per day and reduced his treats to 40 calories per day. Just that half cup increase in food has reduced my dog's begging. The dog food is be nutrient rich, fairly low in fat, and made with high-quality protein, with white herring as the first ingrediant. If for some reason you are looking for low-fat rather than low-calory, Blue Weight Control is a better option.

      Comments about Blue Buffalo Adult Weight Control Chicken and Brown Rice Dry Dog Food:

      Both my dogs are finicky about their food. They absolutely love Blue Buffalo adult weight control chicken and brown rice. This food gives them the vitamins and nourishment they need. I have my food on auto ship as this makes it a lot easier for me. I have noticed the sparkle in my dog's eyes, their coat is so much shinier, and they are more active since being on this food.

      After much research on various dog foods, I would totally recommend Blue Buffalo adult weight control with chicken and brown rice. You will not be disappointed..

      A little pricey, but entirely worth it.

        Comments about Blue Buffalo Adult Weight Control Chicken and Brown Rice Dry Dog Food:

        All my dogs have been on "Blue" ever since the pet food recalls since 2007. High quality food...dogs love it, and remember, better quality, less waste since more nutrients are absorbed into their systems. with a higher quality food, you can usually feed less per serving, since you are not giving them useless filler and waste by-products.

        I have two shep mix siblings that were dumped on the side of a road at 10 weeks...the little girl had no fur on her (all skin); both dogs were undernourished and had mange. The little girl suffered some neurological damage due to the condition we found her in. They were both treated and quarantined for mange for two months. Got them on the "Blue" puppy formula right away. Our vet said it might be a year before the little girl's coat would completely come in. Within 3 months after we took them in, she had a full blown coat. The vet asked what we were feeding them. Told him "Blue" and he was amazed how quickly her brother and her in particular had responded and developed. He became a believer in "Blue" and its quality and nutrtional value. I have two happy and healthy treasures, in large part thanks to Blue Buffalo!

        They are now 3 yrs old and we use the "Healthy Weight" formula to help keep them trim and it helps them maintain (not gain) weight, especially during periods of being less active! All the Blue formulas have served our pack well.

        The Blue Buffalo Foundation for Cancer Research

        In 2003 the Blue Buffalo Foundation for Cancer Research and the Pet Cancer Awareness Program was formed to bolster awareness about pet cancer and raise support and money for various clinics and universities that conduct research on the causes of, treatment and prevention of cats and dogs with the disease.

        Educating pet parents about reducing the risk of cancer in their pets as well as noticing the warning signs is one of the main functions of our mission. We’ve created a web site at petcancerawareness.org that is committed to providing all kinds of important information like cancer facts, valuable resources and even heartwarming stories about pets with cancer. You can make a donation here.

        The month of May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month when we strive to raise funds to help fight against pet cancer. The funds raised are then distributed to organizations like the Morris Animal Foundation, the National Canine Cancer Foundation and others who are involved with cutting edge research on treatments and a cure for this disease. Because pet cancer affects whole families as well pets, we’ve added organizations like the Riedel and Cody Fund and the Kate Koogler Canine Cancer Fund among others. These organizations help pay the high cost of treatments for families who may not have the means to afford their pet’s care.
