Some dog owners want to feed their dog the healthiest food possible, but are hesitant to make their own home made dog food, but they are hesitant to because of the cost. This doesn't have to be the case. Home made dog food can cost whatever you decide. Here are three home made dog food cost saving tips:
1. Consider the meat you are using. The simplest solution is to look for what is on sale at the grocery store and make dog food around this. If turkey is on sale this week, go with that for your dog. If ground beef is cheaper, go with that. It is actually good to mix up the meat in your dog's food. Doing so will give your dog more variety.
2. Think about buying in bulk. You may be able to reduce the cost of your home made dog food by buying in bulk. Consider shopping at a warehouse store where you can buy and freeze a few extra pounds of meat or vegetables. Saving a few cents per pound can add up very quickly.
3. Be creative. Did you make a little too much rice for dinner last night? Are there a few extra pieces of bread that you are not going to eat? If so, work those extras into your home made dog food. It is often overlooked, but the ingredients in food for people are very similar to the ingredients in dog food. Take advantage of this to make the most of your budget.
Those three tips will help you to make home made dog food on a budget. When you make home made dog food, you will know what your dog is eating. You will have a happier and healthier dog and you will be able to rest easier, knowing that you have done the best possible things for your dog.
