I was looking at switching to natural balance, which is $28 for a 17# bag. I have a 75# black lab and the stuff I feed him now comes in a 15# bag, and that last about a week. So if I swithch ot this stuff It would be $4 a day. I personally don't eat alot of meat maybe 1-2 times a week so its hard to feed them left overs. Many of the sites say that it is the carbs from all the grains in lower end dog food that causes the problems. Most fo the stuff I got was from dogtorj.net and then I saw the video which made sense. Thanks for the input one and all.
