Can cheap dog food can also be healthy and tasty?

The offer of dog food increases every day as the numbers of dogs and dog owners increases too. So, food companies need to produce dog food for all the pockets. That’s why the idea of producing cheap dog food is developing every day.

I am sorry to say that sometimes dog owners do not pay enough attention to the labels of the products they buy, first of all they look for the price. Of course that cheap food must contain cheap ingredients. Do you find anywhere good ingredients at a cheap price? Because I couldn’t find until now. Many companies producing dog food are not interested on your and your dog’s benefits, what’s important for them is their own profit. As they work for themselves only, many dog food producers of cheap dog food cause a lot of worse instead of helping you.

You must know that the only factor that provides your dog a good food is the price. The price depends on the source of the ingredients. You can find on the labels the fact the product contains meat, but let’s be honest, sometimes they do not mention the source of the meat because if you know the real source, you don’t buy their product. It’s the same things about vegetables, fats and all the other ingredients.

Another thing to be mentioned here is that cheap dog food can produce allergies and other diseases to your dog. Is it worth to buy cheap dog food and pay a lot for his treatment to the vet or for the drugs? I don’t think so. Not to mention the sufferance of your dog! As you love your dog and you consider him as part of your family, you don’t want him to suffer, right? He produces so much joy in your life, does he deserve such a bad treatment? I think not. Than take care to the food you feed him.

If you really don’t want to spend so much money, why don’t you buy bulk dog food? You ca often find very good sales at affordable prices.

Or the solution that I prefer and is really the best for your dog is the home made dog food. It is cheaper and healthier than anything you can find on the stores shelves. There are so many cheap dog food recipes that you can make at home! Just try and you will see. I have here a very high nutritive recipe of dog food easy to make. You will see that the ingredients are very cheap and you can find them everywhere in food stores.

Turkey and vegetable meal


  • 2 cups of brown rice;
  • 4 cups of water;
  • 1 cup of chopped carrots;
  • 1 cup of chopped green beans.
  • 1 pound ground turkey;

Cook the turkey until the meat changes color. Than put it into a large pot with the rice and the water and bring to a boil. Cook it for about 15 minutes until the rice is soft. Add the green beans and carrots and kook for another 5 or 10 minutes and the meal will be ready.             Easy, cheap and tasty. A very good combination in my opinion, is it?
