What can i add to my dogs dry food to save money??
All 3 of my dogs are on Taste of the Wild puppy food (grain free, roasted venison & bison). I wanted to know what i could add to their dry food & then how much dry food to minus from that to save some money?? They are specifically on this food because one of my dogs developed food allergies at 9 weeks old (hes now 7 months), i was told he could grow out of them but because of the super scary experience we had finding out he was allergic , i dont really want to test out to see if he got over it. No rice can be added since the food is already grain free, & no meats, hes specifically on venison & bison for a reason. & id like it to stay the same with all of them. Ive heard of olive oil added to their diet is healthy but how much?? & how often? And how much food can i subsitute? My two 7 mnth olds eat 3 2/3 cups a day & my 11 week old eats about 1 1/2 cups per day which is recommended on the food bag. I want to make sure they still get the amount of food their auppose to eat.

I add sweet potatoes to Kali's food, but I don't know how much money that saves. I mix home cooked and kibble because she has food issues also. Good Luck!

You can add some safe table scraps to the food. It is a bit of a money saver. Meaty scraps, if you can. Scraps shouldn't take up more than about 20% of the diet.
It's generally best to feed less than the recommended amount--the company is out to make a profit, after all.
What should ultimately determine how much they eat is their body condition--if they seem to be getting pudgy, cut back some. If they seem to be getting skinny, add some.
