I think it is probably regular Blue Buffalo that is being compared to Nutro in those references. Blue Wilderness is a whole world away from Nutro and cannot be compared in any reasonable fashion. Admittedly regular Blue is a bit grain heavy, but the Wilderness formula is grain free and is a great food IMO. Nutro is crap by comparison, and the menadione is enough to make me stay far far away regardless of how it is rated by any website.

Both Blue Buffalo and Nutro Ultra are good foods. So, compare them.

Nutro Ultra PROS: Fish and fourth ingredient are meat

Nutro Ultra CONS: Minimum meat, low quality fillers, and unidentified fat.

That would make Nutro Ultra a -2.

Blue Buffalo PROS: Two first ingredients are meat, good quality grains

Blue Buffalo CONS: Minimum meat

That would make Blue Buffalo a 1. Therefore Blue Buffalo is better.

Personally, I prefer Artemis, Blue Wilderness, Go Natural, Innova EVO, Nature's Variety Instinct, Orijen, Taste of the Wild, and Wellness CORE.

I believe the OP was saying that the choice was between Nutro and BLUE WILDERNESS (correct me if I am wrong) so keep that in mind.

Blue doesn't even make their own food, and for all those saying that BB has never had a recall, they have. The company that makes their cans for them added rice gluten without their permission and all those cans were recalled. BB cat cans were recalled when the 2007 Menu foods recall happened as well.

From The Whole Dog Journal:
NOTE For 2010: Blue Buffalo is back on the list after agreeing to list who and where the food is made.
Blue Buffalo Company ~ Wilton, CT (corporate headquarters)
• Blue Life Protection Formulas (3 puppy varieties, 5 adult, 1 weight control, 1 senior)
• Blue Longevity (puppy, adult, mature)
• Blue Wilderness (2 varieties)
• Blue Organics
NOTE: All foods made by: Chenago Valley Pet Foods, CJ Foods, Dad's Pet Care, Triple T Foods.
COMMENT: Company plans to launch a "limited ingredient" line in February.

SORRY but DAD'S PET CARE?? Come on!

I concur with Diesel - dogfoodanalysis.com seems to be fairly objective and their information is reasonably current. A lot of other dogfood comparison sites are "run" by a dog food producer or their information isn't updated often enough.

Diesel, Whole Dog Journal did recommend Nutro Ultra as a good dry dog food. It was left out of the main Feb. 2010 issue but there was a picture of Ultra on the article page. Many consumers wrote to them wondering why there was a picture of Nutro Ultra but it was not included on the list of top dry dog foods. WDJ put placed the informaton in their March, 2010 issue. Information is below. Nutro Ultra is a good food.

I am not sure if you are able to get to the actual website as you may have to be a member but here it is and I am also copying the article to this thread.

Whole Dog Journal's Dry Dog Food Review Update
We meant to include Nutro’s Ultra Holistic dry food on list of “approved foods”

Several of our eagle-eyed readers caught an error in dry dog food review in our February issue:

“In the February 2010 issue, the picture of the approved dog foods includes Nutro Ultra but it is not listed in the article. Why the discrepancy?”

“I see that Nutro Ultra is included in the photo on page 3; its caption says ‘these are just a few examples of premium quality foods.’ However, it’s not included on the ‘approved foods’ list. Can you clarify?”

“I noticed that the Nutro Ultra Holistic food is in your picture, but I couldn’t find it in the actual list of approved foods. Is it one of the approved foods?”

Nutro Ultra Holistic Select should have been on our list of “approved dry foods” and was omitted by accident. In the process of every review, we seem to lose track of someone! We apologize for the error.
