hungry dog waiting to eat blue buffalo dog foodA class action lawsuit has been filed against Blue Buffalo Company by a consumer who claims that their “Blue Wilderness” dog food products are deceptively labeled as being “inspired by the diet of wolves.”

Plaintiff Shannon Walton states that the company’s Blue Wilderness dog food contains “high levels of dietary carbohydrates” which are unhealthy for dogs and not a major part of the diet of grey wolves.

The plaintiff notes that she owns a seven-year-old labrador-beagle mix named Tucker and she purchased and fed Tucker the BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe (Red Meat flavor) and BLUE Wilderness Rocky Mountain Recipe (Bison flavor).

Walton argues that Tucker’s weight has increased and requires medical observation for canine obesity. In addition, the Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit states that Tucker has been diagnosed with diabetes.

The Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit claims that wild wolves eat very little dietary carbohydrates and do not have high rates of diseases like obesity and cancer.



Carbohydrates are the major cause of obesity in dogs and have clear links to the morbidity of the animal. Also, the consumption of carbohydrates causes a dog’s glucose levels to increase, which could eventually cause cancer, the plaintiff states.

The Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit argues that cancer is basically non-existent in wolves, but there is an “epidemic” of cancer in the United States, which may be afflicting at least 25 percent of dogs.

“Millions of dogs in the United States — the vast majority of whom eat carbohydrate-rich kibbles like the ones sold by Defendant — suffer from diabetes. But among wolves — a species that never consumes carbohydrates — there has never been a single documented case,” the plaintiff alleges.

“And while this disease was virtually nonexistent among wolf populations, American dogs are currently experiencing an epidemic of obesity, with studies suggesting that at least 50% of dogs in the United States are overweight,” Walton states.

Walton claims that the defendant advertises their dog foods are “Healthy” and “Holistic,” but their products are made by extrusion processing, which requires ingredients that are high in carbohydrates which are unhealthy for dogs.



In addition, the Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit states that the high carbohydrate content is concealed from customers. To be sure, the plaintiff claims that the amount of carbohydrates is not even displayed on the products labels.

“Instead, Defendant markets and promotes its dog food products by focusing on the non-carbohydrate nutrients found in the products, such as proteins, fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals,” the Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit states.

The plaintiff alleges that in order to ascertain the carbohydrate content of Blue Buffalo products, the consumer has to contact customer service or by “backing out the percentages of the disclosed nutritional information from the sum of ingredients.”

The defendant also markets this high-carbohydrate dog food to veterinarians by stating that the foods will have a positive effect on the canine body.

“In one way or another, all of the marketing claims described above fail to reflect the scientifically-verified reality about the health effects that dietary carbohydrates have on the bodies of domestic dogs,” the Blue Buffalo class action lawsuit states.



In 2016, Blue Buffalo settled a class action lawsuit for $32 million whereby customers complained that the company misled the public when they claimed their pet food ingredients were free of poultry byproducts, corn, wheat, soy and artificial preservatives.

The Blue Wilderness Dog Food Class Action Lawsuit is Walton v. Blue Buffalo Company Ltd., Case No. 7:20-cv-00001, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    Disabled veteran been feeding my dogs blue buffalo since 2011 and have lost puppies due to illness I could never figure out. Just lost my sons puppy last summer that he was going to train to be my new service dog and she suddenly took Ill and we couldn’t afford to care for her and had to relinquish her to save her life. He no longer wants dogs and has changed his mind about helping me start my service dog organization. I have sold puppies to many veterans and told the to feed their dogs blue buffalo. I am so disappointed. I trusted them. Please add me!

    My dog Bella is 5 and we had only feed her blue buffalo and 2 months ago she started having seizures and rushed her to the hospital and they found bladder stones , had surgery but she is still having seizures, after reading about buffalo I am sure that it was the food that cause her the seizures.

    • Elizabeth Torres June 18, 2020

      My 7 year old American Bulldog suffered a severe Seizure back in February 2020. Took him to the vet because I started noticing blood in his stool. The seizure has left him with partial paralysis to the right side of his face. I have only fed him Blue Buffalo his entire life. When I took him to the vet and after numerous tests they could not tell me what was wrong with him. I have since stopped feeding him Blue Buffalo and now his stool is back to normal and he has gained weight again. All of this saddens me. I had full trust in Blue Buffalo. No LONGER the case. Be safe.

  • Stephen June 13, 2020

    Hello I have a 3 year old bullmastiff and have given him nothing but blue buffalo since he was a puppy. I am concerned and upset with these details, I trusted them at their word for a family member .maybe it’s time to find something else

  • Orlando June 13, 2020

  • Erica Niesen June 12, 2020

    I’ve been feeding my 5 month old puppy Blue Buffalo for a few months now but reading the reviews I will be changing to a different brand for health sake!

  • Kyle Wyman June 12, 2020

    Add me! My German Shepherd got very sick, couldn’t hold anything down for a few days, took him to the vets and it was the food that caused him his sickness. He’s since been changed on his food and diet. And finally a great dog again and is able to gain weight and a healthy coat. No longer will be supporting blue buffalo, I’m sad to see than General Mills purchased them, blue was much better as blue.

  • Alyssa Wing June 10, 2020

    Yes! My dog nearly lost his life TWICE and i spent $37,000 on surgeries to correct what blue buffalo destroyed! I have vet bills, documentation and statements from the VHS specialty care center to prove this! I’ve sent an email to Michael, in hopes he will see it and contact me! I want to be included in this lawsuit, as BLUE wilderness DENIED my claims and my original complaint!

  • Courtney canatella June 9, 2020

    I have a 3 year old Yorkie terrier mix, who has eaten blue the last 2 years, this past February he was rushed to the emergency vet, after vomiting for 2 days, couldn’t eat or drink anything with out throwing it back up immediately. 5 days in the emergency vet, severe dehydration, and pancreatitis as his diagnosis and almost $5,000.00 dollars later he is still alive, now on a special limited ingredient food. Please add me.

  • Katrina June 9, 2020

  • Christine Dalton May 13, 2020

    My 1 year old dog has been diagnosed with lead poisoning. She does not eat anything but BLUE BUFFALO since she came home at 8 weeks old. She now has kidney issues and is on prescription food to hopefully correct the damage done to her kidneys. Please add me. This company needs to pay for what they are doing to out 4 legged family members. Their parent company General Mills should be held accountable as well.

    • Frankie May 26, 2020

      My dogs were eating Blue Buffalo (BB), but I started discussing their food with the vet because they were overweight. When I told him what they were eating, he said “that’s one of the worst foods on the market.” He wasn’t promoting another brand, he was just saying BB was really bad and full of crappy fillers. Just FYI, I changed to a weight management formula with Purina Pro Plan and the dogs have done well and love the food.

  • Panda Smith May 7, 2020

    I have been feeding my new rescue Blue Buffalo Wilderness for a few months. I have tried 3 different versions. He does not want to eat it, has terrible gas so I decided to do some research and found this. It worries me for my new dog.
    My female dog passes away in January due to deteriorating health and she has eaten blue buffalo for years. Makes me wonder what it is doing to my pets.

  • Linda Hampton May 4, 2020

    I am stunned. I thought I thoroughly and carefully researched this. Charlie has been on blue buffalo nearly 8 years. He is 10. We will be devastated if something happens to this dog. He doesn’t have a lot of energy and is a bit overweight regardless how much I try to control his portions. How was the conclusion reached that there are products in this food that are not listed? How do I get that information?

They’ve been on Blue Buffalo dry adult chicken all their lives with never any problems……UNTIL , 5 mos ago we lost one to sinus cancer and 2 days ago we lost the other one to cancer of the spleen ( I believe it’s called hermangiona sarcoma). To say we are devastated & heartbroken is an understatement. My poor babies suffered terribly and so did we. We’re convinced it was the food. Please add me.

    My pitbull has been to the vet for vomiting and diarrhea 4 times this year. She has been eating Blue Buffalo during that time in the form of grain free adult kibble and various treats. She is now eating different food since I heard about the problems with BB from our vet. Not sure if the food could’ve caused her digestion problems or the most recent colitis.

    We use Blue Buffalo dog (and cat) food. We had to put down our Great Dane in 2018 because he started having all kinds of issues, including diarrhea, head shaking, balding/rash issues, and gagging. We took him to a couple of different vets, he was on lots of antibiotics and pain relievers and they could not pinpoint what was wrong with him. They even asked what food he was eating. We adopted another dog from the pound, as our other dog was in severe mourning for our Dane. This new dog has been coughing for about 6 months now, and the vets can’t figure out what is causing it. She has to take meds for the cough. I wonder if this is all because of the food we chose for them.

  • Marty and Sandy January 9, 2020

    We started feeding our 4 dogs Blue Buffalo brand puppy formula and Adult Lamb formula. Jenica our smallest went to the vet and they told us she was significantly overweight. The date we started feeding her the new food coincides with her normal weight going out of balance. We thought it might be her sneaking our cat’s food, but this story is alarming.

    Three yrs ago we rescued a pup who was emaciated. When I noticed that she was gaining too much weight on Blue, I switched her to a ‘weight management’ formula. My vet said she is still overweight for her size, so I’m not sure what to do. Thinking about raw based.

    Well… I already knew Blue did this. I work in a pet retailer network and let people know when picking out a new food that Wilderness can potentially put weight on, especially on a dog who isn’t extremely active. High protein and high carb. The ingredient list says it all. She could have figured this out before buying the food in the first place. Not to mention the recalls, the company Blue fell into, etc.
    Just look into your companies my dudes (and mostly importantly, RECALL history).

    The grain free update has also been “now” pointing to legumes instead. A lot (but not all) grain free foods replace grains with potatoes and peas. Now saying, “If you can find a grain free food without legumes, you are okay.” It has also been requested that scientific testing be done on smaller breeds to find a link, as the majority of dogs tested were large breeds that are predisposed to heart issues in the result of bad breeding.

  • Linda January 7, 2020

    Blue Buffalo Wilderness is designed for extremely active dogs who burn a lot of calories ie: jogging, hiking etc. It is not designed for the average dog that takes two walks and spends the rest of the day being a couch potato. It is deliberately high in protein to replace the calories burned by high activity. If you have a dog of a erage activity you should be feeding life protection. And the FDA has not connected blue buffalo to CDM. It is being investigated. People read the bags of dog food. Dogs don’t become obese overnight. Cut back portion sizes or switch to a healthy weight formula and limit treats.

  • Jodi Kaye January 7, 2020

    Blue Buffalo Natural Puppy grainfree with chicken is my dogs favorite! ! I tried at least seven other brands but either she would not eat it or she would get the runs! So I have bern very happy with Blue Buffalo! I hope all the reports about it heing dangerous is not validated.

    • Carol January 7, 2020

      Do not feed grain-free diet of any kind. They have been implicated in causing heart disease in dogs which may be irreversible. Still under investigation.

  • Barb Davis January 7, 2020

    We’ve adopted 2 Yorkshire terriers and started them on the Blue Buffalo immediately. One we found out doesn’t do well with chicken, so we started with the small dog lamb and rice. I checked with the vet, and I am not overfeeding, but the smallest one now looks like a Guinea pig. I’m going g to just make their food myself, then I’ll know what’s in it. These poor babies have been through enough.

  • David Amend January 7, 2020

    I have had my chocolate lab on Blue Buffalo since she could eat adult dog food and she will be 8 years old this year. The vet has been concerned about her weight for a few years. I do get a little crazy with snacks and the vet was thought that was the problem with not enough activity. I even went as far as providing our vet with all of the nutritional data of the food and snacks as well as frequency. I cut back on snacks but so far no weight loss.

Since i’ve changed, that isn’t an issue anymore and I hope she starts gaining weight

  • Dan Smith January 7, 2020

    I chose to not buy into the hype years ago when Blue Buffalo came on the scene. I’m so glad I decided to feed a regular food after watching what has gone on here. My dogs are healthy weight and show no signs of obesity, and I didn’t over pay for food. More money doesn’t always equal more love.

My dog trusts me and I trusted the food company I’m just so grateful she’s okay.

    My Carrin terrier and tea cup chihuahua both diagnosed with high levels of thyroid. Both fed blue canned. After the carrin terrier was put down…. I was notified by Amazon that there was a recall for “high levels of naturally occurring thyroid “. Thyroid tissue is a byproduct. It states on the can, “No byproducts”. I have a file of documents on the incident which blue buffalo has copies sent to them. Of course I haven’t found anyone that can push this for me cause you can’t outright sue blue. They don’t care about your pets, just their money!

    My 2 year old pitbull is the healthiest most energetic dog I know. He was eating another brand of food and he happened to get bored of it so I switched him over to this brand, due to all the good things I saw on the packaging. He was eating it for probably 3-4 months. At least 3 times a week he would throw up food as well as my other two dogs who are older and have never had health problems in their lives!! My 2 year old pitbull started to be very lethargic, had no appetite, & just became off. I took him to the vet and they suggested to give him a slow feeder. So i did, and nothing. I then started to research this brand and saw nothing but recalls and bad reviews. I immediately took my dogs off this food and called corporate. They were very rude and denied everything. I would like to be apart of this. How do I sign up for the lawsuit?

    People you have to let your pets run daily. As an owner of 2 labs which are by nature always hungy no matter what they’re fed or how much you feed them. Funny how she doesn’t state if the dog is getting adequate exercise daily. Both of my labs were on blue due to a gluten allergy. Their coats are shiny and their weight is in check. How many snacks was this lady feeding the lab-beagle mix. First off both breeds have different weight points to maintain. I guess now we all have to sue every food manufacturer out there because we over indulge and gain weight due to eating too much. This lawsuit is full of crap. She has no clue on how to take care of a pet. By the way some dogs are born diabetic most though is cause by a stressful owner.

They are now on raw diet, I make the food myself and all the symptoms are going away, losing weight and have more energy.

  • Sharon Richert January 6, 2020

    I fed my dogs blue buffalo. They, all 3, were on it for some time. Would have to go to feed store to find the flavor. Followed feeding guidelines on bag. After awhile they both gained weight but it took a trip to the vet to realize how overweight they were. My vet suggested a weight control food and their weight did come down. My Tucker started developing cysts, then was diagnosed with diabetes. Insulin twice a day, deterioratin health over long time eventually led to to having to be put down to end his misery. After reading the above all this makes sense. My Stevie has a cyst on his side that can be felt. I had another dog I had to put dow due to cancer from hips up his spine and into his brain. He was on same food. All the advertisement as to how good the food is, healthy, and I feel it contributed to their less the acceptable health.
    I’m all for a class action if anyone wants to hold blue buffalo accountable.
