How much does each dog go through as far as their food per month?
We have 2 dogs. One dog is about 25 lbs and the other is about 8 lbs.
We feed them raw meat, bones and organs. Chicken is easiest for us to get so that is what they have the most. Sometimes they get vegetable scraps, eggs or bread crusts but it isn't a major part of their daily diet.
We chose to move to a raw diet with our first dog because store bought food seemed to cause him issues. His system just seems very sensitive.
When we took in our second dog she was overweight, wheezy, had very bad breath and didn't look too healthy. Some of her teeth had had to be removed in her previous home because of decay. She had been fed people food and commercial dog food. I wasn't sure she could do a raw diet but she immediately went for the other dog's food so we gave her some of her own. She lost some weight and seems much healthier and energetic.
Both dogs have nicer teeth, breath and better feeling coats after being raw fed.
First dog usually gets one chicken quarter a day and second dog gets 1 chicken leg. If we are feeding something else it would probably be an equivalent amount. We buy them food weekly. I don't know how much they would each go through in a month.
