Some dog owners want to feed their dog the healthiest food possible,
but are hesitant to make their own home made dog food, but they are
hesitant to because of the cost. This doesn't have to be the case.
Home made dog food can cost whatever you decide. Here are three home
made dog food cost saving tips:
1. Consider the meat you are using. The simplest solution is to look
for what is on sale at the grocery store and make dog food around
this. If turkey is on sale this week, go with that for your dog. If
ground beef is cheaper, go with that. It is actually good to mix up
the meat in your dog's food. Doing so will give your dog more variety.

3. Be creative. Did you make a little too much rice for dinner last

eat? If so, work those extras into your home made dog food. It is
often overlooked, but the ingredients in food for people are very
similar to the ingredients in dog food. Take advantage of this to make
the most of your budget....
