I buy from MyPetCarnivore
. Ralphie is about 3 years old and I normally feed him a little over 2lbs per day. We're both normally pretty active in the warmer months, but since it's been so frigidly cold here, our activity levels have definitely decreased! Due to that, I'm feeding him a bit less - around 1.5lbs - since he's mostly napping these days anyway (I haven't seen any visual change in his body composition so what I'm giving him seems to be working out just fine).
The last order I placed, that I received December 7th, cost me $240 (plus a $10 transportation fee) for 110lbs of food:
- 30lbs of turkey necks
- 24lbs beef heart chunks
- 24lbs pork tongue chunks
- 8lbs ground whole lamb (green tripe included)
- 24lbs ground beef tripe supermix
This should last until the end of February.
As far as the good deals go, with MyPetCarnivore it depends on what kind of meat you want to get, but buying in bulk is cheaper - they lower the price per pound as the quantity you order goes up.
Lamb, goat, rabbit, etc. are more expensive than the more widely available chicken, beef, pork, turkey, etc. The ground beef tripe supermix is the cheapest thing per pound that I get (it consists of 50% green beef tripe, 40% beef muscle meat/bone/organ, 10% beef trachea and gullet).
