Blue Wilderness

The Blue Wilderness dog food is no doubt the Ferrari of dog foods. This is what dog-food should look like. It is manufactured by the Blue Buffalo Company and is hands down an excellent product.

There is no doubt one of the best on the market. The only people who do stock this is Petsmart from what I can see. Looking at the top ingredients by weight the first 6 ingredients by weight, 5 are animal source protein ingredients. They are not the usual by-product rubbish but very good animal protein sources.

These are deboned chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal, salmon meal, and whitefish meal. For a carbohydrate, they also make use of potato which is an excellent combination. There is some oatmeal added which one of the better sources of grain. The oatmeal is high in fiber so it is also an excellent source of fibre in the dog’s diet. The meat content is as stated way above average and much like AvoDerm, they include cranberries, carrots, sweet potato, and blueberries. Flaxseed and herring oil has also been included as sources of fat in their diet. There are also added vitamins to a round of the package. No doubt this is going to be pricey!

Good Points:

Hands down one of the best dog food products on the market today. Good quality protein sources loads of vitamins and a good balance of everything else that a dog would need. There are no bad sides to this dog food.
