Dobby

Growing up my Mom always described our family as working class poor. In general, by this she meant she worked hard to get by, and didn’t have much “extra” money after meeting our obligations (if she was in fact able to meet them). My family is the same. I have to take a lot of care with our budget and spending. I must watch costs on everything, from clothing to entertainment to food to pet supplies.

Healthier blends and natural dog foods have gained much attention recently. I’ll be honest. When selecting puppy food for Dobby I looked at a number of varieties of those. I couldn’t afford them and that was that. Now, Dobby is almost two. That’s the age where historically I’ve stopped feeding puppy food and switched to adult. So, once again it’s time to look at what’s out there.

This time around I had a bit of a surprise. I looked in the grocery store. Wanting to look beyond store brands,  I also looked in PetSmart. If you’ve ever shopped PetSmart, you know they have a lot of different brands and products. One brand that I wasn’t familiar with is Nature’s Recipe®.

For more than 30 years, Nature’s Recipe has worked to provide pets with ideal nutrition drawn from nature’s inherent goodness. When it comes to your pet’s needs, they craft their recipes to make sure Every Ingredient Counts™. I found a huge selection of Nature’s Recipe at PetSmart. They offer recipes for real life – dog foods which contain no artificial colors or preservatives, are tailored to your dog’s stage of life and designed to provide specific  nutritional or functional  benefits.

As it turns out, not only do their ingredients count, so does their price point. I was quite surprised to find that affordable healthy pet food does exist, and that switching to a healthier, more natural diet can be done without going into the poorhouse and making major adjustments to your budget. The Nature’s Recipe food was almost the same price as some of the brands that aren’t natural that are sold in the grocery store.

You can purchase Nature’s Recipe online at PetSmart.com or in your local PetSmart store.

We currently feed my pups a very strict diet, but the cost of food is outrageous. I’ll definitely look into Natures recipe and compare!

That’s good to know. So much of the healthier choices are so expensive! I’ve seen food for $80 a bag! I like having an affordable option.

What kind of dog do you have? It looks JUST like a friend’s pup that is extremely playful!

You have an adorable dog.. so I can see why what you feed for food would be so important. We have a cat and he is important to us so we watch his food to.

It’s great to know that this is an affordable option for natural food. We always try to feed our dogs the best food for them.

Price and ingredients do count. The healthier the food we are able to feed our pets the healthier they will be. That translates into lower and less frequent vet bills.

I’m surprised to hear that healthy pet food is affordable too. That is news to cheer about though, for sure. 🙂

I like to give my pets the best food possible but something it is out of my price range as well. I am glad there is a brand that is good and affordable.

I love that this is a good price. My husband and I, like you, have a tough time with our budget occasionally. This would help me feel like I am still able to give my dog good food!

The size matters to some animals as much as the taste.
