I've found that chicken seems to be the cheapest meat, not pork, when comparing price per pound. I feed chicken, turkey, pork, beef, fish, and anything exotic I can get my hands on. I've read that beef is the best overall meat for a dog. Just make sure you don't cook any of the meats that contain bone. You can feed raw, uncooked chicken legs with the bones, etc., but if they get cooked, you can't feed them, as the bones will shard and splinter inside your dog's stomach, requiring surgery to remove them. The dogs can pass the uncooked bones with no problem. My dogs have all chipped their teeth on meat that contain larger bones, so I now only buy boneless pork and beef, and give them the bone content in the form of poultry and fish, which has never damaged their teeth.
I also won't feed anything that's been precooked or had flavor/salt added. I stick with human grade meats, and try for organic/holistic if possible/affordable.
