I have two 60-70 lb dogs. Zeus and Voodoo have active metabolisms, and they practically broke the bank when they were on kibble. They were eating 6 cups apiece; a total of 12 cups every day. A 30 lb bag of Natural Balance lasted maybe two weeks.

We have four dogs, but that's not really relevant as they all eat different things.

It takes Winston a little over 5 weeks to go through a 40lb bag of Kirkland Lamb & Rice. He gets 2 1/4 cups per day. He's a large dog (75lbs), but very low energy, so he doesn't need much.

When she was being fed NOW, it took Keira 2 weeks to go through a 25lb (or was it 30?) bag. She was eating 6 cups a day. Now she's on California Natural chicken & rice, which is a 35lb bag I think, so it'll probably last about a month or a little more as she only has to eat 4 and a bit cups a day of it.

The Tollers were on raw, but due to money situations and Dance's intolerance to so many different things, they're on California Natural Herring & Sweet Potato for the time being (they'll be switched back to raw in a month or two probably). I bought a 20lb bag with both eating just under 2 cups per day. Not sure how long it'll last, but hopefully close to a month.

3-4 months or so for Summer to go through a 6.6 lb bag of EVO RM. Small dogs are nice to have sometimes.

I feed Taste of the Wild. I have four dogs, but only three eat that food. Two Chows (50 and 60 (ish) lbs respectively) and a yorkie. A 15 lb bag lasts 2 weeks.

Ginger (8 lb poodle mix) eats Natural Balance Venison and Sweet Potato canned, and a case lasts 2 months, at least. And that's with sometimes snitching a bit of her food as treats for the boys.

I have 7, all rottweilers, varying from 11wks to 8 years. When we are feeding kibble, we feed Wysong and go through a 32lb box in 4.5 days. They are also getting muscle meat, ofal, veggie puree', kefir, and supplements. I suppose that if they were only eating kibble, it would only be 3 days.

Currently we are on our way to finishing a 40 lb bag of Diamond Naturals, between the three girls (2 60 lbs and 1 6 lbs) it lasted about a month and a half.

I just brought home some EVO RM small bites for the two big girls, and they'll be getting 2 - 2 1/2 cups a day each. If I get Noodle in on the EVO, she'll get 2/3 a cup a day. Cross your fingers that Jeremy will continue to let me buy it at $65 for a 28 lb bag

Both of my boys are RIDONCULOUSLY easy keepers.

When I fed all-kibble, they went through a 15 lb bag of Taste of the Wild in a month. They each got under 2 cups per day, and supplements/extras with practically every meal.

Blaze is 5.5 years old 60lbs. I feed kirkland, a 40lbs bag usually last around 2 months give or take (I bought a bag on October 5th, and now we just passed the half way point int he bag). He gets 2 cups a day, maybe more depening if we do more then we normally do in a day. He is very active and does daily offleash hikes for about a hour, then plays ball or about a hour, and what ever other time at the park is spent playing with other dogs.

he also gets a few raw bones a week just for the fun in them to him. plus keeps his teeth nice and clean.

We're feeding Chicken Soup at the moment. A small box (its either 6 or 11lbs) lasts us about a month. Kiba gets about 1/3 of a cup, and Stryder varies from 1-1.5 cups a day.

And now that the fleas are gone, we'll see if they start itching to the new food (bangs head on wall).
