I’ve mentioned before that we feed Tilley, Willow and Watson on a raw food diet (but not Titan -- he is too big and too picky to make it affordable), and have done so for years. We buy our food in bulk (hundreds of pounds at a time) from a friend who mass-produces a variety of chicken and turkey recipes, which keeps the price down around $1.50/pound*. This does not include the price of the three freezers we use for storage. It’s not as convenient as buying a bag of kibble from store once a month, but we feel it is the best option for the health of our dogs. Although raw diets seem to be gaining momentum in the North American market, they are far from the norm. So imagine my surprise when I found that *grocery stores* in Australia have giant refrigerators full of affordable raw diets for dogs – approximately $6 for a 3kg package. The meats are mostly chicken and turkey, but there is everything ranging from pork to beef to kangaroo. I would love to see something like this in Canada one day.
