Raw Diet Alternatives

Just in case anyone is interested, I've been looking for more affordable raw diets. My friend who started the Natural Dog Expo gave me this info. This food seem better than what I was feeding, Primal. Once I run out of the Primal, I am going to try it.

This is another one my friend recommended. They customize the food to your dog. They do 90% raw diets and 10% of their clients do cooked. I am pricing their food as well.

Yes, it really looks good. I figured it about 15.00 cheaper than the 8lb bag of Primal. Plus, it has less water, so you don't need to feed as much I like saving money!

This is another option:

Thanks for this! I looked at it, but didn't see anything that was a complete meal. Maybe I missed it as there was a lot to look at. I want a complete meal because I don't want to have to add anything. Please let me know if I overlooked it!

Hi Missy,
I priced both. I am going to try the answers. The Pet Nutrition ends up to be over 7.00 a pound when you add in the shipping.

I can get the Answers locally. I think every store sells it at a different price. The place I called was 15.99 for 4 lbs of Chicken, comes to about 4.00 a pound. The Beef was 17.99 for 4 lbs, comes to about 4.50 a pound. The store I was getting Primal from just raised the beef to 50.00 for 8 lbs. That's 6.25 a bag. Look at the savings......
