I get my dog food off my local butchers stall, quality raw mince what puts a back on the dogs, reasonably priced too, at the end of the day I feed my dogs proper because a good dog man should Bluezak. Regards Collie John.

Beef and tripe was 70p per kilo, chicken was free. Money doesn’t come in to it with my dogs I’ll pay for whatever they need but it’s nice to feel like you’re getting good value, raw pet food is big business these days with all the BARF experts that have appeared on Facebook over the past few years.

Some of the prices are unreal, like that natures menu stuff, fairly low quality meat & sky high prices, was in a shop the other day and they were charging £2 per kilo for tripe, and not even good tripe

That's what I call a bargain Davey 😁..i'm not going to lie I don't feed my lot the real high quality meat I once did,I just don't work them hard enough to warrant it these days..the dogs all look reasonably fine but I know we're I working them to the extremes come the winter they would certainly be lacking..

My pup Bella last evening 😊

That’s still not too bad tbh 50p per lb when it’s packed up for you, a lot of pet food places are double that

Looks well that dog, but you’re definitely right, hard days running on the mountains dead of winter if a dogs not taking in serious calories they’ll end up a bit worse for wear.

Depending on temperature of freezer and dogs can handle higher bacteria levels I believe, I'd be happy leaving dog meat in the freezer if it was decent before going in for 6 months.
