Lauren - what feed store are you using? There are a few that are willing to order, but you have to buy in bulk. Maybe if we have something we want to try and have to order in bulk we could split the cost?

I only know of Britton Feed and Seed. Any other good ones to check out?

I really can't do bulk because I don't have a stand alone freezer or else I'd jump on that option. :/ My little duplex is so small that I have no room to put a freezer anyways.

Bulk is normally just a case, but I don't know how much is in a case. Maybe someone here can answer that. However, I understand the lack of freezer space...



(we are looking into buying another freezer....for ourselves!)

It depends on the brand. For primal nuggets, you have to buy six bags to get the case discount.

Laurelin, I'd say you should feed about 4 oz/day, based on their bodyweight. But it reeeeally depends on the individual dog's metabolism. So you can just start with about 4 oz a day and then watch their weight and adjust accordingly.

When I do premade (which is very rare) I normally get NW naturals raw bars. They take up less freezer space since they're shaped like bricks and you just snap/cut off how much you need.

As far as amount, I feed the same amount regardless of brand and I have never has an issue. I would feed the same amount of S&C as you do primal, and if they seem to need more, increase.

Well meal one I gave them a half a S&C patty and then one Primal. Mia went right for the S&C and Summer went right for the primal. They both left their other patty until I had to hand feed them. Stupid dogs. lol

Frodo's favorite is definitely Nature's Variety, but he'll eat anything.

Summer still looks at me like raw is a disgrace.

They may like kibble, but I don't! lol They eat their kibble down in just a couple minutes.
