i am almost embarrassed to admit this...... i have not sat and actually added it all up to the penny, but in the winter i spend $600+. keep in mind that i am feeding about 19 sled dogs, and around 4 pit bulls and a couple of retired sled dogs. ouch, that is hard to write, that is almost as much as my mortgage.

I spend between $65-$85 every month. Gypsy is on Canidae, she has allergies. Mexi and Umah are eating Nutro Max right now ( :oops: ). The Canidae lasts a little over a month, so I figure I spend the $32 once a month, and the Nutro Max I get every three weeks, and its $25 for a 40lb bag.

I'm having the feed store here order me some Diamond Naturals, and I will more than likely switch all three onto that.

If you add in all the suppliments and such I feed, it probably comes to more like $100-$120 a month.

$2.45/lb for Emm and Cobi's food; $55 for Coal's food, $50 for the dehydrated food used as a topping for Coal's food (while I switch him); supplements galore at easily $90 a month.

It's 'spensive but they're worth it.

Holy GOD, $600/month? I'll stick with 3 dogs!

I actually spend anywhere between $200-$240 in dog food per month.
All 9 of mine eat Canidae ALS or Lamb and Rice with a spoonfull of Nature's Variety canned.
It gets more expensive once a month when I have to re-stock my mom's pittie with the Grainger's canned - he has heart disease and can only eat all natural human grade canned with no sodium...

I dont know if anyone else noticed, but Canidae has gone up in price lately too. :O(

I would say we spend about 150 dollars a month on the food for the three dogs. We go through about 1 1/2 - 2 bags of Canidae a month at 59.99 a bag (40lbs). Then it's supplements, treats and bones.

Too flippin' much.

I'm feeding Xen NV raw patties, venison. 1lb/day. Tres expensive.

But raw is really the only thing she does well on, and I don't trust myself just yet to prepare anything myself...

I spend about $125 per month on one dog. She's usually on a home diet of mostly organic/free range foods.

Sometimes I do have to feed her kibble due to time/budgetary constraints. During these times, I feed her Evo. And I think that costs me around $80 a month.

Ever since we found out that the girl has a senstive stomach we spend $200+ per month, that is on one dog. I told my wife if this is what it takes to help her stop throwing up (it was about three months of off and on vomit) then I would gladly pay it.

3 APBTs and 3 Chi's all on raw = $200-$500 (depending on when I order my 2 month supply of Columbia River 2 lb chubbs)... Just placed a 2 month supply order and my total was $262 - just for the chubbs...Not to mention all the chicken leg quarters, other RMBs and OM.
I work a 2nd job to pay for their food and all their "needs" - like new collars and toys :)

For 5 dogs we spend right around $200.00 a month on food. I am not even going to try to figure out the extras like treats and yogurt. That is a big part of why my second job is at a bording facility at a vets. There is a little store that carries toys and treats, so these I get at 10% above cost and the place we get our dog food from gives a 10% discount for anyone who works at a vets. Yippee, I love me some discounts. :thumbsup: I am not even going to think about adding in the cats and horse. (hay prices went through the roof)
