I think Blue(last time I checked) was made by CJ Foods-defiantly not a Diamond product : ) One interesting thing-I recently mixed the regular Blue buffalo Lamb(green/beige bag) in with my mix and several of the dogs got gassy, vomited, or had blood tinged stool(soft/diarrhea) Since I noticed it after 2-3 meals, I simply immediately stopped the product, assuming it just did not agree with them.

I’ve been looking for reviews of Professional Chicken and Barley dry dog food, but I’ve been having a hard time finding anything. Since it’s made by Diamond Pet Foods, how would it compare to the reviews here? I have two pit bulls that I’m looking to switch from Purina One to something a bit better, but I’m nervous when I see dried beet pulp listed as an ingredient. At this point, we may have it narrowed down to Annamaet, Professional, or Blue Buffalo. Any thoughts? Looking For TRUSTED Reviews on Blue Diamond Dog Food

I would love to give this food a higher rating because of the Blue Diamond Dog Food ingredients, but the issue with many dogs getting sick and Blue Diamond Dog Food recall history makes me hesitant to recommend it without a warning. According to the Whole Dog Journal’s 2012 dry dog food list Blue Buffalo is made by a number of different manufacturers. They list CJ Foods, Ainsworth, ProPet, Triple T Foods, Tuffy’s, ANI/Vita-Line. Diamond does not make Blue Buffalo. Hope this helps.Overall, it’s hard to make a decision about this product. If you want to believe the ingredients and the label, then this is a great line of food. If you want to believe the Blue Diamond dog food reviews online, then this food is making many dogs very sick. There have not been any recalls for the foods lately, but due to the history of recalls because of bad manufacturing practices, I don’t have much confidence.With 26% protein, 16% fat and added superfoods, Diamond Naturals Chicken & Rice Formula for Adult Dogs supplies the energy and muscle building blocks your dog needs to stay active and strong.
