Blue Buffalo Nantucket Feast with Cod is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 21 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Yukon Gold Potatoes, Potato Starch, and Pea Flour (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Guar Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Blue Buffalo's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
