Default How Much Do You Spend On Dog Food?

I was curious about how much some of you generally spend on dog food,whether it's raw,kibble,or whatever? I usually spend between $150 and $200 on food,not including extra stuff like treats.

You're talking monthly, right? Do you mean for each dog or total?

I spend $65-$70 a bag and that lasts me about 6 weeks for 1 dog. The bag weighs about 29lbs.
Treats I don't want to know

i don't even want to know. Seriously.

I went to the store today and bought a small bag of Fromm's, a small bag of Stella and Chewy's freeze dried patties and a small bag of training treats. Throw in some cans of very pricy canned food for the Siamese kitten (I swear kittens eat about a hundred times more than an adult cat). And a tiny catnip mouse for the kitty.

$98

Yikes. I'm at that store every week. So, no I don't want to know what I spend each month!!

Yep I am talking about how much you spend on food per month/per dog.I wasn't really talking about extra things like treats,but I guess you can add that too if you want.

I fed raw and buy in bulk.

For 2 GSD's, I spend about $250.00 every few months.

For Koda:
$60 on a 30ish lb bag of dry food (lasts about 6-8 weeks)
$60 on canned food roughly (1 can a day)
$45ish on raw foods
$20 on treats

Plus around $25-30 on extra nutrients (fish oil capsules, etc)
