Default How much do you spend a month?

Just wondering on average how much (per dog) everyone spends a month on food (commercial or otherwise)?
(~that's such bad english!! sorry!~)

OK, so I spend about:

$70 on dry food (eagle pack, holistic select chicken)
$150 on canned food $2.50/can *they each get one a day, half in the morning half at night

so $220, that's not including their treats or their "desserts" which we've just decided to get regularaly the other day.

One 33lb bag of Innova lasts me two months, and I pay $45 for that. So a month is roughly $22.50.

A 33lb bag last you two months!!?!? Really??? You've got two dogs... How does that work...

I go through 33lb bags approx. a month.. They're not overweight either... and it never looks like their eating a lot...

Maybe now since I'm feeding canned I'll go through less kibble...

That's messed up, I'll have to re-evaluate their feeding schedules...

it cost me $37 for 40 pounds of canidae today. that'll last me two months or so, give or take.

i don't really keep track of what i spend on raw stuff- i just buy them what's on sale cheap at the grocery store. maybe $30/month?

A 33lb. bag of Eagle Pack at about $22 will last almost 2 months. She also gets canned, 1/4 of a can each night, just to mix into the dry food. That's about $15 a case and will last us a month and a half. So a little over $18.50 a month. Lucky for me Maya is only 35lbs. That keeps the food bill down.

Wow. Am I ever getting ripped off... The average for a 33lb bag of Eagle Pack, Natural Balance or Wellness is $70 here... I'm in Canada though that may be why...

The guy gives me "deals" sometimes $2 a can, but apparently that's not a deal, we can't buy full cases here either.

Hrmph, I've got nowhere else to go for it... Arg, does that ever made me mad.

Roxy,
I'm in Canada too and I know it feels like we're totally losing out here...
I'm paying $20 for a 3kg bag of Evo RM with some cans thrown in right now...plus a $37 bag of Natural Balance mixed with cans (which we buy at the case for $43)...We're ranging around the $120 mark for two dogs. (then you add the outrageous taxes Canada has... )grrrr

Roxy's CD, compared to the US it does seem that food over here is much more expensive than it is there for some reason.

I only pay for Tango's food, and I just switched her to California Natural Herring & Sweet Patato. It costs me about $60.00 for one 36lb bag, and it'll probably last her about a month and a half or maybe 2 months. She also gets California Natural canned food (both lamb & rice, & chicken & rice) which cost about $2.50/can and she goes through about 8-10 cans a month depending on how much a give her at each meal. So, all together it costs me about $110.00 to feed her each month. Less, during the months that I don't have to buy the kibble obviously. As far as treats go, I buy cookies in bulk and it costs me about $1.30 for a pound and those are for all four dogs. I don't really care as much about the nutritional value of cookies as I do kibble, because its just a treat that they get occasionally. Most of the time they get carrots or a qurter of an apple for a treat.


My mom spends about $45.00 for a 44lb bag of Nutro Natural Choice Chicken meal, rice & oatmeal formula twice a month for the other three dogs and about $2.10/can of Natural Balance and she gets about 10 of those monthly. So all together, thats about $111.00 a month.

I didn't include tax in any of those though, so its actually more.

Sawyer is the only one that consistantly eats out of that bag, though Aubrey does get quite a bit of it. I'm not sure how my food bill is going to look now that I've got Virgo...I know that she's not going to be fed Innova at my Grandma's, so I need to find out what they are going to feed her. Right now she's on Iams, which is relatively cheap.
