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!

        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.
