Pros: Easy to find, Comes in many different varieties and flavors
Cons: May be a little pricey to some, Questionable lawsuits and some bad ingredients
Blue Buffalo Wilderness was the first wet cat food I changed my cat to after dumping kibble. I felt like I was giving him a good quality food, and he seemed to really enjoy it.
I personally could afford it every week, and my cat licked the bowl clean on some nights. However, one thing that turns me off about this food is the amount of lawsuits it has had in the past regarding their ingredients.. and breaking their 'True Blue' promise, that's conveniently slapped on every Blue Buffalo product.
These conflicts is why I removed Blue Buffalo Wilderness from my kitty's diet. I would not advise using this as a main course meal for your cats for the reasons listed below, and the questionable lawsuits above. However, it may be a suitable choice for a rotational diet for your cat.
Keep in mind that Blue Buffalo's canned products contain potato starch; an unhealthy filler for cats. Additionally, some of their canned goods contain carrageenan, a known toxic hazard to felines. Carrageenan has been studied, and multiple experiments have proved that it can cause gastrointestinal problems, such as ulcers and possibly cancer. [Source] I love my cat, and I personally would not take that risk. .. Guar gum can also cause gastrointestinal problems. You can read more about the cons of guar gum here.
My final word would be that Blue Buffalo is obviously above average when it comes to the quality within the cat food industry. I'd take Blue Buffalo Wilderness over any canned Meow Mix product, or dry kibble. However, if you are picky and want the absolute best for your cat, Blue Buffalo Wilderness may not be the choice for you.
