Feeding healthy ingredients isn’t just a trend for us. It’s our history. Since we started in 2003, we’ve always used high-quality natural ingredients with real meat first. Never any corn, wheat or soy. And no poultry by-product meals. It’s been that way since day one for every product we’ve ever created. And it always will be.
BLUE started with a promise made to a lovable Airedale named Blue, who struggled with health issues. His family wanted to feed him the best food possible, so they searched for something with high-quality ingredients, but decided they could create something even better – a natural pet food with healthy ingredients, real meat first, and some of the highest standards in the industry. That promise still drives us every day. Our expert animal nutritionists continue to find the healthiest ways to feed and nurture our favorite four-legged family members. And one of our greatest priorities is to raise money for causes that are close to our hearts. Our promise to Blue lives on for you and your pets every time you fill their bowls with BLUE.

Exclusive LifeSource Bits™
BLUE LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists that support:
- Immune system health
- Life stage requirements
- Healthy oxidative balance
And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat — the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.
