Well, I don't think I'd pay more for feeding kibble - if I do feed them kibble, my dogs would be eating approx 20 cups a day. Tyler eats 6-7 cups of EVO a day, rah is 7-8 cups/day when he is fed kibble, and Berlin was eating 6 when she was eating kibble. So, 20 cups a day between three dogs means you go through 60 dollar bags of Innova EVO pretty quickly, right?
I average feeding about 40 lbs a week - some of my meat is very inexpensive (chicken and turkey, or instance, i can get well under 50 cents a lb, for instance, and I would say that makes up about half of their diet) - but some of their diet is over 2 dollars a lb. I would say on average I pay about 1/lb, maybe 1.25/lb? So say on average I spend 100-150/month feeding Berlin and Rah - Tyler eats mostly EVO, so he eats about 50 dollars worth of kibble a month, plus some Raw (and he's working through random other kibbles right now too - puppy kibble I had for berlin, leftover kibble elle couldnt feed to her dog - Tyler is an iron trash can! I actually got a GREAT deal on venison and rabbit as well right now, and I can get pork for a dollar a lb, so it's really just beef that ends up being expensive, and lamb - so I can feed most of my meals right now for 1/lb or less.
So - long story short - about 100-150/month to feed the two dogs. But we shall see as Berlin starts to grow where she ends up and how much she ends up eating. We are still adjusting.
I feed tripe about once a week, maybe once every week or two?
I'll let you know next time I order it through my co=op, maybe you can just order some through me? I paid 1.75/lb i believe ? When I feed it I split the 4-5 lbs between Rah and Berlin, and sometimes Tyler too. Like I said, I go for simple. I buy things in 1-2 dog sized meals on purpose
Rah eats 2-3 lbs and Berlin gets the rest.
