Terry, Blue Buffalo isn't manufactured by Diamond it's manufactured by CJ Food's. Here's a link to which foods are manufactured where. The Pet Food List. Pet Food information, manufacturers, products, ingredients, cat, dog food.

I just saw the date on this, let me see if i can find one with a current date.

Ok...let me see if this link works...it's from Whole Dog Journal and in the article is a list that you can click and it shows where the food is manufactured from. Whole Dog Journal's 2012 Dry Dog Food Review - Whole Dog Journal Article

Blue Buffalo is definetly NOT manufactured by Diamon. That is the only food that we feed all of our pets; two cats, and two dogs.

Thanks so much!! Good to know the Blue Buffalo is NOT associated with Diamond in any way!

The "longevity' formula for mature dogs looks like it would fit the needs I have but am going to go study the other formulas as well.

I appreciate the help.. my shoulder is acting up and I've already overdone here at the computer searching out a good food for my babies. The 'input' has been a big help to narrow down!

I would recommend the Longevity variety very highly as both Chrissy and Snuggles both ate that variety for a while. They are not on the Freedom variety to see how Chrissy does with her Tear stains...so far I have not any improvement and will wait and see a bit longer. My Vet said that if there would be any change, Chrissy would have to be on it for eight weeks. Possibly though, we might change back to Longevity.

I use Blue Buffalo canned as well as Innova and occasionally Wellness. I usually go back and forth between these 3 brands and have to say that the fluffs seem to like each one and they I haven't had any problems with their tummies or them eating.

I feed Blue Buffalo to both Bella and our Toy Aussie and they have done very well on it.

Wait, can someone please tell me what is wrong with diamond? I feed my babies Chicken Soup for the Puppy/Dog Lover's Soul because it's one of the only foods that seems to work with all of them. I just checked and it is made by Diamond's. I would really like to know what's bad about it to see if I need to change their food.

Google "Blue Buffalo complaints" and you'll find some scary stories. I started to feed Scooter the puppy food but a friend of mine told me that it made both of his dogs very ill. I threw the bag away and bought what his breeder recommended, Royal Canin mini puppy mixed with Pro Plan puppy.
