Cost To Feed
Cost per day to feed Real Food For Pets
People with cats or small and medium sized dogs find Real Food For Pets to be very affordable. In fact, many have reported to us that they actually save money with Real Food in reduced medical and/or insurance bills. However, Steve’s is also fed to Mastiffs (helps to get rid of those skin problems!) and they eat a lot of food.
To manage the cost, many large and multiple dog owners mix Real Food with a premium kibble. Mixing seems to work well with the dogs too. Many people, including veterinarians, have reported to us that skin problems, arthritis, and other problems have cleared up just by mixing Real Food with the kibble. Using an all natural grain free diet is the best. This way you are adding in the micro-nutrients that are only found in raw food while not negating the programs with eating ingredients that are not meant for your pet’s body.
Why is Real Food For Pets more expensive than kibble? All kibbles are mostly grain, some as much as 90% grain. Grains are cheap. But dogs have no dietary need for grains, and appear to be much healthier on a primarily grain-free diet.
Real Food uses all high quality, expensive, human-edible ingredients. Every ingredient we use comes with a letter of guarantee from the supplier that the ingredient is human-edible. We produce the nuggets using human-edible standards in refrigerated rooms at a very slow rate (compared to kibble, which is produced at the rate of 8 to 10 tons per hour).
Real Food For Pets is priced, per serving, very competitively with premium canned dog and cat foods. Pound per pound, Real Food contains about 40% more biologically available calories than typical premium canned dog or cat foods.
