A most recent remark by Hannah (at the time of writing):

My cats, Hannah and Merlin, get pure pumpkin in their wet food to help with poop issues. Not all the time but it also helps that they like it and when someone turns their nose up at dinner, a little pumpkin goes a long way. Well these treats are well received from the kids and they'll do anything for a morsel of yummy tastes!

A most recent remark by LDean (at time of this post):

Our 2-year-old dog was having diarrhea and our family vet told us to try rice, organic pumpkin, and chicken. It worked like a charm and now our dog can’t wait to eat. 2 T. (add more when they don’t feel well ... it’s magic) of pumpkin added to their food is supposed to keep those tummies running right. Our dog is hooked. The pumpkin makes all the difference.

5 - Blue Buffalo Turkey Day Feast

Who’s gonna be your dog’s best friend?   You are!  

If you help him or her celebrate Thanksgiving with this yummy meal!    


It’s important to remember that while you want to satisfy your dog’s cute little begging face at Thanksgiving, that many of our foods are highly seasoned and spiced.   This spells big-time trouble for them and you!    

It will upset their stomach and system beyond belief.   And guess who gets to clean it all up?   yep, that’s right - you do!

This food is a much better choice for both of you.  And your dog won’t miss a thing! 

Check out the benefits…

Healthy Ingredients for Your Dog:

  • Turkey
  • Turkey Broth
  • Turkey Liver
  • Dried Real Egg
  • Carrols
  • Green Beans
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Vitamins like B3, B2, B5, B12 D3, and folic acid
  • Cranberries to prevent bacteria
  • Biotin to maintain healthy skin and coat
  • Grain-Free

Tip with a warning:   Put some in a bowl at the table with you.    Spoon food to your dog while you eat.   They will think they are getting what you’re eating.   Sneaky?    Nah, we think that’s so smart!!   Now, we only recommend doing this if you already are in the habit of feeding your dog from the table.    If not, please don’t start.  It’s much better to let them eat out of their bowl for every meal!

A most recent remark by Trish (at time of writing):



I bought this for our baby & she loves it. Been getting away from feeding dry & using raw instead. Tried that alone but she picked out the meat chunks & left the rest. So we started mixing the raw with the Blue. Now she gobbles it all up & looks at us wanting more. Keeps running back to her bowl.

A most recent remark by MrsRiley: (at time of this writing)

She wouldn’t let us touch it for about an hour after opening it. It’s the only toy she has completely SATURATED with saliva because she can’t /won’t stop playing with it! Loki (German Shepard) is wondering what is wrong with his odd and sharp little sister as she has never been this crazy with a toy.... I also have a thing for my pets toys looking like human food so this banana fits right in with the doughnut/cupcake/burger/hotdog/steak we already have :) it lost its magic for her a little bit by day two but if I scrunch it up and work the catnip a bit she goes psycho in no time ! Great buy!!

A most recent remark by Ajones: (at time of this writing)

Has lasted through weeks of excessive chewing. I would recommend for power chewers. My two pits have yet to try a nylabone that they haven’t loved and this one is no exception. I like that this nylabone and all from the “big chew” line doesn’t shred. Well worth the money!

Buy your dog a tasty turkey leg, too, this year!
