Dog Economics of Feeding
Now for the economics of dog feeding, disregarding for the moment the time and trouble that may be spent in the preparation of some foods, including the cost of feeding a pet.
If you buy a little snore food for the family to feed the dog, as so many do, it will cost you about six times as much as well-dehydrated dog food.
If you feed canned or semi-moist food to your pet, it will cost about three times as much as a poorer kibble-type food to which even the cheapest meat is added.
