OK, so Canada wise, what I pay is average.. Whatever i can't do anything about that, but if it was just the pet store I go to.. GRR! LOL

I wasn't paying as much when we weren't doing the canned food thing, but with Roxy having to take pills I thought it would be a nice brekkie for them. LOL

It costs me $32 for 17lbs of Natural Balance Potato & Duck. I have to pick up a bag about every other week. However, for every 10 bags I buy at Petco I do get a free bag.

We're the cheap ones here- $20 for 40 pound bag of Kasco Hi-Energy. Go through 80 lbs a month, for 7 dogs, 5 pups. So about $40 a month. The price varies though. All depends on the gas prices. This last time it was $20, a month ago it was only $17.

We have 3 dogs on a raw diet and spend about 100 per month. I used to keep a spreadsheet which was good for tracking total cost, but some items we get would carryover longer than a month so it was hard to get a true month by month idea. I'd have to inventory each week out and then calculate the costs out to really get an accurate picture. It seems to average about 100 a month though. We go through about 32lbs of meat/bones per week, a dozen eggs, and a pound of liver.

I'd say about $20 for a 50 lb bag ( I think...don't wanna get up and look ). A bag of bone treats usually last for a month or so since they don't get one (or two...or more ) a day. I guess about $20/ month on average.

Every month I buy 2 bags of Innova Evo the 13.2 lb size and they are $22 including tax. I use one whole bag and about a quarter of the second bag (but we only make on trip to the petstore a month) so I spend about $30 on kibble a month. We also add can Evo to both her meals (she gets 1/2 a can a day) and the cans here cost 1.50 and we buy 16 cans a month so thats about $24 on canned. So for her kibble and canned every month it costs me $54 bucks (give or take a buck or two). Then I also buy her 2 bags of the Canidae snap biscuits which run about $4 a bag so that's $8 I spend on her treats so I spend a little over $60 a month on food for her.

Wow, labbreeder, $20 is super inexpensive for 2 large dogs! I thought I was a bargain-hunter !

I have the same problem as DanL... a lot of what I buy is one type of meat or cut (such as just chicken quarters, just lamb cuts) in 10-20 lbs, so each will last way over a month because I mix up their Raw meats so much. I spend around $30 per month to feed both dogs, I'm guessing... that includes supplements. I also buy a medium bag of California Natural, which only costs $10 for me (discount! what what), and lasts about 2 months because I feed it as 25% of Fozzie's intake. Gonzo almost never eats kibble.

$36 for a 40# bag lasts about a month. Then I buy natural balance food rolls that costs about $7 for a 4lb roll (maybe 5-6 a month, I train alot). And for the puppy he gets canned food as well that costs $1 a can (he's so skinny).

They do that with the foods at the pet supplies plus that I shop at. Except I always start on the frequent buyers program and I'll buy three or four bags of something then switch. I hope to be able to follow through with the Evo and earn my free bag though!

Roughly $30 a month, including some organic stuff (which usually is a little more expensive) and factored cost for supplements such as fish oil, coconut oil, vitamin E, probiotics and kelp powder.

My dog weighs 28 pounds and gets an average of 850 kcal per day, not including training treats. Calculated over 30 days that's about the equivalent of a 13.2 pound bag of Innova Evo (the second largest size), which would cost me about $23 including tax.
