Product Review: Blue Buffalo Wilderness Alligator & Catfish Canned Dog Food

Hello good pups and peeps of Blogville! Hope this finds you well! I'm back with a review for the most pawsome I've been on my own so much this past month, if we didn't have Chewy Autoship, I would have starved! ...but that's another story!

O.K.  M.O.M. (stands for Mean Old Momma!), what'd Chewy send me???

You are reviewing Blue Buffalo Wilderness Bayou Blend with Alligator and Catfish Grain-Free Canned Dog Food Macy Blue.

Hey, didn't we just review their Alligator and Catfish Biscuits?

Yes we did, MB! Good Memory! This is what the can looks like: 

And the food:

I never forget a good biscuit M.O.M.! So... what are we waiting for??? Let the puppy taste it! Let the puppy taste it!

WOWZERS! That's good stuff!!!

O.K. M.O.M. do your 'gredient bit...

Creekhiker here. Here are the ingredients from the Chewy website: 
Alligator, Chicken Broth, Chicken, Potatoes, Water, Whitefish, Chicken Liver, Turkey, Catfish, Pea Flour, Dried Egg, Pea Protein, Shrimp, Guar Gum, Sunflower Oil, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Carrageenan, Cassia Gum, Choline Chloride, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Sodium Selenite, Cobalt Amino Acid Chelate, Niacin Supplement (Vitamin B3), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid (Vitamin B9).
Blue Buffalo makes really quality products but... if it has more chicken broth, chicken, potatoes, water, whitefish, chicken liver and turkey than catfish, why does Catfish get top billing?? Things like that just bug me. 

That being said, it is a quality food and Macy likes it. It is $3.08 per 12.5 oz. can at this time.  The exotic flavors of our regular brand (I used rabbit and wild salmon for comparison) are $2.72 / 13 oz. can so price wise, it's in the same wheelhouse. I do buy about 8 cases of food at a stretch and then organize the flats so every 9th can is the same food. I don't like eating the same food every day so why should my dog? So, I would probably work this into Macy's rotation.

I always mix the can food with Macy's liquid Glucosamine ...
and then I add warm water and kibble.

Here's the girl enjoying her meal: 


Oh...MY....DOG!!! Did Princess Pocketbook just say she's buy me some of this???? Whooooo Hoooo! Score!

Well, I sure give it four paws up!!!!
Neither Creekhiker nor Macy Blue were compensated for this review. gave Macy Blue one case of Blue Buffalo Wilderness Bayou Blend with Alligator and Catfish Grain-Free Canned Dog Food to devour...or not.
