YES!!!! The pet food guy gave me a 1# bag (or something like that) to use as a topper (like Bacon Bits only healthier, less colorful, and much more expensive) for Kramer, because he couldn't imagine selling it! He told me he would have had to retail the 11# for $110. So I guess that is a bargain?


For that price, I want someone to come to the house and prepare the meals too!

I want them to prepare my meal!

The person that I saw buy it today has a SAR BC that has had horrible allergy issues since she was young. She's fed this and Primal Raw.

I think you're reading the smaller bag, I think I figured the 11 lb bag would feed Dante a couple of weeks (He's 85 pounds)

The food is very interesting looking, looks like the soft jerky treats I use for training.

Now that I think about it I saw 2 people buy it today, the other was a woman with a Chinese Crested who said that her dog's skin issues have all but gone away since changing to this food

Ok, I held the computer up to my face and discerned that it would feed one of my dogs for 20 days. That's not so bad, I guess, especially if you ended up having to use less supplements! I have been working on how much I spend per dog, per month and it is very high.


If I had unlimited money I would feed preprepared raw.

a store around here sells the Ziwi Peak and I have also noticied how expensive it is!
I thought about buying some for treats, but decided making my own would be cheaper!


I agree Ruth, if I had the money I would probably feed prepared raw too...so tempting, especially after finding a whole chicken foot with nasty long claws and all
in my bag of chix quarters for the dogs. And then there is the tripe.....

I know some people might enjoy doing the whole preparation thing, but I get sick of butchering game hens
I make my husband do that now ::shudder::

My employers buy a bag of this and use it simply as a supplement for their greyhounds who are otherwise fed raw. The way they use Ziwi Peak it does last quite a while. My employers are way richer than me though!!

Then again, given how much $$ I've spent on my dog's allergies (diagnostics and treatment), that could look like a bargain. If I were still giving shots, still visiting a dermatologist, still using Rx antihistamines, yep, that looks pretty affordable.

I was able to get away from shots, specialists and Rx meds by doing a raw diet (obsessively) using raw honey, and *continuously* washing, cleaning, filtering, mowing, trimming, as much of Camper's environment as possible. Supplements, honey, water, energy, etc costs add up. (And did you know that cabin filters on a Nissan cost like $60?)

Hmm. Maybe Ziwi stuff is cheap after all.
