Is It Expensive To Feed Your Dog RAW Foods?

In this video I show how cheap it is to feed your dog RAW foods.

I feed my dogs the B.A.R.F. Diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods). Here are a couple of books on the B.A.R.F. diet I recommend by DVM Ian Billinghurst.

    jfc dude! and still people clutch to that awful nasty canned dog food saying it's so much cheaper and healthy cause it's way too hard to spend some time getting into the topic how to properly feed your own dog…I don't get that…allergies, skin problems, digestion, so much more which could be easily solved by the right way of feeding (which is mostly the raw food diet) instead people spend time and money at the vet fighting symptoms with nonsense pills

    Cool video! Thanks for taking me up on the idea for a shopping video, and for bringing us along. For some reason I imagined it costing a lot more for the two dogs and two pups, for two weeks of food.

    I here other people that feed their pets raw meat say vegetables should only make up a tiny part of their diet. I was just wondering if this is true and how much they should be eating. Your dog's seem to be enjoying their vegetables as well as their meat.

    How long does it last for feeding all your dogs? I have been wanting to switch to raw for my pups but I have 6 4 are huskies and I have two small dogs but I always figured it would cost a lot with so many mouths to feed.

    So cool.

    I have a question…I have a small dog with lots of small/missing teeth (hairless Chinese crested it's a genetic issue with the breed) if i wanted to feed him raw meat….would i just feed cut up boneless things? He likes to inhale food and doesnt gnaw on things like my big dog. I worry about him choking as he's done it before:-/ he loves fruits and veggies !

    Use leg quarters at less than fifty cents a pound from local store that beats Walmart routinely supplement with beef liver and pork live or other organ meats as available when prices drop to reasonable levels and many squirrels harvested freely from roadkill also any there game roadkills. Trichinosis is not a threat to canines only humans and pigs! Different tapeworms affect canines! Worms are largely specific to a species but deworming poison is required regularly anyway!

    Well said. I agree it is much cheaper to feed raw. For my young Border Collie she costs about £7 per week but I get her stuff from a specialist factory outlet all ground up.Since she passed that stone she's had no problems so hopefully she'll be able to have legs,drummies etc.I'll be trying a 80/20 chicken/lamb/bone mix.Previously she couldn't tolerate lamb to well but I can dilute it down with more chicken/bone. Besides cost ,kibble is so full of crap .

    Very good value. Bones from butchers are cheap in the UK as are chicken legs and lambs liver, pigs liver and various hearts and tongues. Chicken feet, turkey neck, spines harder to find without going to more specialised frozen pet food stores and then become more expensive.

    While I don't have a dog, I've been doing research on getting my cat started on a raw food diet thanks to your videos 🙂 It just seems so much cheaper and healthier for them! My cat has a very sensitive stomach that rejects most kibbles, so I'm hoping she'd take to a raw diet. Convincing my mother is a pain though.. She's thoroughly convinced that feeding raw is too expensive, and that they're perfectly fine not only on kibble, but having it out for them 24/7 so they can "graze" as that's how her own cats were raised when she was young. I've been told time and time again though that this is NOT natural for carnivores! They're not meant to have food available for them all day every day. They're built to work for their prey, not lounge around and nibble all day.
    Hopefully I'll turn her around, or be able to afford my own place soon enough so I can work on getting my cat to a better place.
