Is Blue Buffalo REALLY The Best?

Wondering what’s in Blue Buffalo Dry Dog Food? Want to know why it could be unsafe? Today you’ll find out exactly why Blue Buffalo may not be the safest food option to feed your dog, and learn what to look out for on dog food labels. Before we begin, please take a moment to pin this to your Dogs board.

Quick story: This past week I have been researching dog food ingredients, spending long hours putting in google searches of “can dogs eat ground yellow corn” and “can dogs eat L-Lysine Monohydrochloride”. It’s not the most fun thing in the world to do, but I want to do it to find out the safest dog food. 😎

Dog food isn’t easy to choose, but commercials on TV and the internet just aren’t always truthful! Cesar’s Wet Dog Food contains carrageenan, which can cause cancer in dogs. 😓

Today I want to help you by warning you of the few dangers of feeding your dog Blue Buffalo.

Is Blue Buffalo REALLY The Best?

First is Dicalcium Phosphate, causes kidney stones and can cause soft tissue to solidify.

Next is Garlic. Garlic contains thiosulfate, which is toxic to dogs and causes damage to red blood cells, resulting in anemia. Can cause poisoning in dogs, even in small amounts, according to the AKC (American Kennel Club). ☠️ The good thing about the garlic is that it’s a natural anthelmintic agent, supports immune system.

Then we have salt. Salt can cause salt poisoning, high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes.

Then, Copper Sulfate. Copper is important, but maybe not in the form of Sulfate. Copper Sulfate can cause cancer, can accumulate in the liver of your dog and lead to toxic overdose.

Next, Sodium Selenite! Sodium selenite can be toxic to animals including dogs, not good in a food they eat often, it can poison a dog. ☠️

Then, Vegetable juice, I want specifics; what vegetables are in this vegetable juice??? 🤔

Last, Ferrous sulfate may cause Iron Poisoning, symptoms are drowsiness, lethargy, vomiting and bloody diarrhea. 🤮

Also, some recipes have high calories, carbs, and there are reports of dogs dying after eating BLUE Buffalo and many came moldy, there were many lawsuits over them.

The answer to that is maybe not. There are healthier alternatives to these ingredients, for example, instead of garlic, use a dog-friendly seasoning like parsley. Don’t get me wrong, Blue is better than Beneful.
