I'd say about 3 weeks. I was feeding my 2 the same food, they ate a bit less, and a bag lasted about a month.

Uh...until I get sick of the bag and hand it to a friend? seriously, they never finish a bag because I get bored and give it away about halfway through. Job perks are so lost on me...

This post should win an award for being the most unhelpful.

40lb bag of TOTW has lasted Eve 2 months so far, and there's still about a third of it left! She gets a buncha scraps, but still... I was surprised at how long it's lasted.

My crew eats 6 cups/day and a 30lb bag of Fromm lasts about 3-4 weeks.

ETA: The Fromm feeding guidelines do include amounts in grams, so I just used that to calculate to double check. There are about 100g in 1 cup of Fromm and 13.61kg in the bag, so that works out to just over 22 days worth of food per bag, or 136 cups.

A big bag of TOTW lasts my girls a month and a week, so I figure it will last you at least a month. Maybe a week shorter than a month

...I'm shocked I think.

Penn is free fed (I know. I'm a terrible owner but she only picks from time to time and is certainly not even a tad overweight) but I feel like she goes through WAYYYY more food than this. I buy Go& we go through a medium sized bag every two weeks.. I know that's less than 40lbs but I think it's like 20lbs. And there's only one of her and I'm almost positive she eats WAY more than your guys dogs :|

Ok.... I used to feed Bodhi 2 mugs of food per day.

I THINK a large bag would last us about 6 weeks.....

Prob not much help.

Prob went through 15kg food per month easy for both dogs.

Email the company and ask how many cups are in that sized bag. Natural balance, which is a similar size has about 112 cups in their 28 pound bags, so Nico, at 3 cups a day takes about 37 days to go through a bag.
