Max is currently eating Acana dog food. I wanted to know if it would be easier/cheaper to make it myself (and make it vegetarian). After researching that, I eventually found out that the best solution is to buy vegetarian dog food.
I first dismissed the latter because I thought that this would be much more expensive. Only at the end of my research, I found out that the vegetarian dog food was cheaper than the one I was buying until now.
Previously – Acana
80 euro per bag of 17kg
€4,71 per kg
€1,13 estimated costs per day
€2,10 estimated costs per day
Based on list of ingredients adapted from this blog.
The mix I made consisted of 23% protein.
The costs per 700kcal would be €1,82 (so per ‘normal’ meal, so not too expensive and quite healthy)
(for myself: file is saved under personal – archive)
New – V-Dog Flakes / Crunchy Nuggets
53,50 per bag of 15kg
€3,57 per kg
€0,86 estimated costs per day
note 1: calories per gram estimated to be the same
note 2: Flakes is cheaper, but is Crunchy Nuggets are ‘brokjes’ so the same as Max has now
When I run out of the current food, I will be switching Max over to this food.
