Hi. I've been lurking in the doghouse since getting our spaniel puppy in January. Having read several threads on raw feeding, I thought I'd give it a go, especially tempted by the £10 introductory discount on offer . If you use either of these could you contact me by pm? I think there's a discount in it for you too.
So glad I have a small terrier Butterfly...just placed my Nutriment order this morn and it will last at least 40 days on its own or 50 plus if I add a pack of wings from the the supermarket and cost �36 delivered!
Between the two boys, they eat about 1kg of raw food a day. They are not big dogs, hate to imagine how much that would cost if they were. The 1kg tubs from either brands are around �3 each. I could save a bit of money by feeding more offal and raw bones instead of using the tubs, but it�s just convenient. If I see reduced meats at the supermarket, I would stock up and prepare home food.
My Border has 250g and that is over 3% of his weight but it seems to be about right for him. Mind you, he has the odd fast day at that (self imposed, I do offer) so the odd meal just gets put back in the fridge. I think he just prefers feast and famine feeding!
If you buy raw bones/carcass then it�s cheaper but I�d be careful how much bones you feed them as too much can cause constipation. I wouldn�t feed them bones every day. Offal is cheap but if you are looking at lean meat that�s where the expense is. You�d be struggling to find any lean meat off the bone at �3/kg at the butchers or supermarket unless the meat expires on the day and is reduced.
