A big mistake when buying a bag of dog food or cat food is to only consider the price of the bag. This kind of price shopping tells you little to nothing about the actual cost to feed your pet.
When it comes to cost, consider the following…price per pound and price per feeding. This will give you a more accurate idea of what it really costs to properly feed your pet.
Price Per Pound
Most premium dog foods in the pet store will usually start at about $2.00 per pound and go up to $3.00 per pound. A good quality cat food will start at about $3.00 per pound. This is the first way to judge the true cost of a pet food. This is also not unlike the way we shop for meats, fruits, or vegetables.
Price Per Feeding
Just because it appears you are saving money on that “bargain brand”, doesn’t mean that you are. You may actually be spending more. It often takes up to twice as much bargain brand food to equal one serving of Life’s Abundance because of better digestibilty (not to mention better quality). So in reality, you may actually be buying double the amount of pet food and not saving money at all.
Consider the following example of cost per feeding for a 15 pound adult dog:
If you were to buy a lower cost grocery store brand like Beneful dog food, the cost for a 3.5 lb bag would be about $5.50. Alternatively, the cost for a 8lb bag of Life’s Abundance dog food would cost about $14.90, giving the appearance that Life’s Abundance is much more expensive per bag. However, the cost per feeding is amazingly different.
The cost of feeding beneful dog food would be about .59 cents per day while the Lifes Abundance dog food would be about .56 cents per day (includes approx. tax & shipping). Therefore, to feed Beneful dog food for 1 month would cost $17.70. The cost to feed Life’s Abundance for the same 15lb dog would be only $16.80.
Be An Educated Shopper
We must all be informed shoppers when it comes to which dog or cat food we are willing to buy. Many manufacturers get their ingredients from overseas to save on costs and many foods have been recalled.
It simply DOES NOT PAY to buy cheap dog food or cat food.
If you are looking to be cost efficient while buying a safer, more nutritious pet food then consider Life’s Abundance Premium Dog Food and Cat Food. It is Veterinarian formulated by world renowned formulator Dr. Jane Bicks and has never been recalled. It is also a fresher food since it's not sold in stores. You can’t go wrong with Lifes Abundance and your pets will definitely love you for it!
