I spend $50 on a 40lb bag, this is my first one of that size, so we'll see how long it lasts. I also spend $2.50 on a can of food, that lasts me 2 days.

I bag (29.7 pounds) per dog lasts approximately a month - Halo eats Orijen Adult, and Keefer eats Orijen 6 Fish. I was spending close to $200 a month, but found a cheaper source, so it should be about $150 a month now. I also have 2 cats, and their dry food lasts several months (also Orijen), but I probably spend $75 or $80 a month for their canned food.

I spend a little over 70$ a month on food (Blue Buffalo) and the assorted treats/rawhides that he gets every month. He gets NuVet vitamims, but I buy enough to last for three months at a time, so, depending on the month, it varies. It was a bit more when Chey was around because the 24lb bag didn't make it the entire month.

I feed raw and spend about $150 a month on food for the dog an cat. I cannot wait for when we move back to America and not have to pay for food in Euros.

I thought you meant per month for your household. I spend $147/month; however, that is for 3 big and 1 little dog.

I buy TSC's 4Health Performance kibble and their 4Health canned Chicken and Rice or Lamb and Rice. For the three Hooligans I spend a tad more than $200 a month. This doesn't include treats, stuff I cook for them, etc.

Approximately speaking, because it varies depending on whether or not it happens to be on sale. We generally spend $80 per bag of Blue Buffalo dry dog food which last us about three weeks, feeding four mouths (Chihuahua, Newfoundland, Mini-Poodle, and Jack Russell/Lab mix). As for treats, they are only given raw/cooked veggies and fruit that we buy for ourselves and for the little pets. Logan loves carrots and peas, Koochie loves apples, Sukee and Oogy both love banana and zucchini.

We also spend :
$55 on Blue Buffalo cat food every three weeks.
$80 on Royal Canin SO food for cats every couple of months.
Approximately $140 per month on can cat food (Friskies and PC)
$14 on Oxbow Cavy Cuisine Guinea Pig food every three weeks.
$11 on Oxbow Bunny Basics Rabbit food every two weeks.
$20 + on Oxbow Timothy hay per month.
And over $100 on fresh fruit & veggies for bunnies and guinea pig per month.
Kitties get a few bags of Temptations per month at $3 a bag.

Being the proud owner of 4 rescued dogs, 12 rescued cats,
2 rescued bunnies and 1 rescued guinea pig,
is expensive but completely worth it! J

Around $100 a month. I always look for some alternative food with good nutritional values.
