cls9q:  My dog as a grain allergy, so his food is crazy expensive too!  Its Acana, and its made in Canada (where I am) from high quality ingredients.  NO fillers, no grains.  The price just keeps going up though, so I’m looking into a few new options.

And I agree, don’t feed dogs grocery store crap.  Research it… they are fulling of fillers and are not nutrious at all for your dogs!  There are lots of good websites out there on what foods are good and bad for your dogs!

We used to feed our dog Acana, but now we just cook his food.  He does much better on home cooked meals (he has tons of allergies).

cls9q:  Ours has a very delicate constitution so has pretty bland food: it’s a make called Chappies (don’t know if you have it where you are) and is recommended for dogs with delicate stomachs. He gets 1 scoop of the dried food mixed with 1/3 tin of the wet in the morning, and in the evening he gets 1 scoop of the dried mixed with a small foil of Caesars (which he’s OK with in small amounts).

He doesn’t get fed anything else, as it gives him a bad stomach. While it’s tempting to give him scraps of meat etc when he looks all appealing, it will just be cruel as it makes him sick 🙁

We joke that our dog eats better than us, and he kinda does.. he’s on a raw diet and only eats Bold Raw chicken or turkey. It ends up costing us about $40 a week.

He also gets table food every once and awhile, it doesn’t like him too much, but he sure loves it!! Mostly meat, he hates vegetables.. and really likes yogurt. Especially frozen yogurt, they make one specifically for dogs, he goes nuts over it.

ETA: We used to feed him Acana too, but then he decided he was over kibble and went on a 3 day hunger strike. After doing some research, it turns out raw diets are better for frenchies anyways, so we switched him over.

cls9q:  such a cutie!!! My dog eats Royal Canin German Shepherd Adult. A 12kg bag does him for a month as he only eats about 3 cups of kibble a day as he’s not a big eater and never has been. He’s quite fussy and I’ve tried plenty of different brands, flavours cheap and expensive. However he’ll eat the Royal Canin GSD dry or with something mixed through it and has done for over a year now so no matter the cost I’m sticking with it. Though I found a local place that sells it cheaper than amazon and they order it in for me when he’s running out. £44.99 a month is pretty cheap considering he’s a giant dog. I also give him tuna, pollock, wrasse, bacon, chicken, mince, steak, liver and so on. Everything except the fish is given to him raw. He gets a little bit of cheese as a special treat or a wee tiny splash of milk. For treats he likes supermarket own brand dental chews, the branded ones get sniffed at and he looks away.

I am a little insane so I made a spreadsheet of premium brands (no fillers, by-products, or corn), calculated the price per cup, and now feed my dog Natural Balance Ultra Premium dry food. He gets a cup in the morning and half a cup at night.

I feed my dog fresh meat and things my vet recommends. I’m a health nut myself, and take the time during the day to prepare healthful foods for myself, so I do the same for my furry friends. I have two bunnies as well, and take the time to prepare them fresh food too. I wouldn’t ever trust my animals’ health to a big corporation, just as I don’t trust my health to processed foods and such.

I feed my dog (yorkie x bichon) Orijen – its a Canadian food and very very good. Its about $30 a bag which last him 6-7 weeks. I also make him “wet”  food as a treat every week (chicken breast, brown rice, carrots, peas). We also joke that the dog eats better then us, but I would not have it any other way…I cringe when people tell me they feed there dogs grocery store brand food.

Our dog eats Wellness. It’s more expensive, but when she was a puppy, any other dog food made her sick. We’ve just stuck with it, although if we’re ever in a pinch (they don’t sell Wellness at any stores in our neighborhood), we will feed her the crappy stuff.

Ours is on a raw diet.  We don’t have the ability (freezer space) to do all-raw, get the food from the butcher every week and add some veggies, kind of diet yet…so we buy dehydrated raw food and frozen raw patties.

The dehydrated raw is from The Honest Kitchen and costs about $45/box.  One box lasts us about a month and a half.

The frozen is from Nature’s Variety and costs about $20/bag.  We go through two bags each month.

So we spend in the ballpark of $70-80/month on his food.

For reference, we only spend about $350-400/month on OUR food.  So it’s ridiculous, yeah.

My pets both eat organic food. One is a locally made kibble and the cat is now eating Wellness brand. I might switch him to the local organic too but its pretty expensive. 

Legit my pets eat better then i do.
