Is it cheaper to buy raw dog food or make it?
Making your own raw dog food has the advantage of giving you complete control over what your dog eats. This makes homemade a great option for dogs with food sensitivities or health concerns. It’s also more cost effective to make your own than to buy pre-made raw food from a store.
How much does raw dog food cost per pound?
Per Pound Cost is Typically $2 to $3 for Meat
Beef is rarely less than $3 a pound. However, I can sometimes find chicken or pork for $1 to $1.50 per pound, so it balances out. I will occasionally spend more to increase the variety in my dogs’ diets. If you feed a premade raw diet, your cost per pound will be higher.
Do vets approve of raw diet?
Raw diets, especially raw meat diets, are not recommended because of the risk for salmonellosis and other infections that can affect pets and their owners.
