Well, homemade RAW, when done right is more affordable, Unless you are getting a steal on the premade. With premades they can add in anything (pretty much) some have just meat and bone, some have meat only, some have meats, fruits and vegetables..... Most that feed a raw diet don't feed those things. And when things come in a tube, patties, blocks... etc. Then you don't know the quality of their food. When I buy from the butcher (human) I know he is eating the same thing that I would eat, only raw.
