I'm curious if you have suggestions on raw food brands that are reasonably priced. I'd be 100% open to switching back as I know it has so many amazing health benefits. Thanks!
I also made a vet apt to have her exam done and blood work to set her up for the cleaning...I can't wait to hear the damage done to my wallet, but she is so worth it <3
I agree that raw food brands are very expensive.
I do prey model raw (PMR). My meat is all purchased from the grocery store, or butcher. I've also received free meat from hunters, and I sometimes buy or am given live animals to be used as meat (chickens, turkeys, ducks, and rabbits mostly).
It's much cheaper this way. I'm able to get chicken for sometimes as low as 49 cents/lb, pork as low as 89c/lb. Most of the time I'm able to keep it under $2/lb, often less, on average.
