Default How long does it take you to go through a bag of food?

And... how many dogs do you have, what brand(s) do you feed, and how many pounds are the bags you feed?

hmmmm.... you know I don't really know! and now I don't feed kibble anymore.

When I had just keeda, I would buy the 18lb Merrick bags, and I seemed to have them for close to 2 months???

Then I added Bailey, and I think they maybe lasted 2 weeks? Then I switched foods a few times and started buy the 40lb bags, and I'd say they lasted about a month.

Now that I feed raw, and since I don't have a large freezer, I usually only buy enough for a week.

A Pug and a Shih Tzu. We feed Taste of the Wild and I believe the bags are 15 pounds. We only have to buy one bag per month.

I have a 30 lb mutt. We feed Solid Gold, and buy the 40 lb bags. It's been 2 months and we're about half way through it.

We buy a 40 pound bag of Kirkland Signature. It lasts about 2 weeks, sometimes 3. And I have 11 dogs (7 dachshunds ranging from 7 pounds to 20 pounds, 1 Chihuahua who weighs roughly 3 pounds, 1 JRT mix weighing 10 pounds, 1 Rat terrier/Chihuahua weighing 6 pounds, and 1 poodle/eh don't really know mix lol weighing about 10 pounds).

I have 3 small dogs and buy 6.6 lbs bag of EVO red meat small bites for them. I really don't pay attention on how long it lasts, its a bit over a month. I also feed EVO can food, not every day but a few times a week with occasional raw meat.

Where I get my food they have this reward system that gives me a free bag of food after the 10th bag and my last one was free..woo!

We feed raw now, but we used to feed Orijen.

A 5.5lb bag lasted about 6-8 weeks with us... Rylie weighs 4lbs and Chloe weighs 5.5lbs.

A while. Being low energy, Daisy doesn't need much. And Benji, being little and low energy, doesn't need much either.
