How a raw feeding diet saved this owner $3,692 a year

Although a raw feeding diet for dogs is becoming more popular, a lot of people think it is too hard or too expensive or too time time consuming or all of the above!

But today Hayley and her dog Hodge are showing how they are saving money through a raw feeding diet (and P.S they are using our Healthy Active Pet raw feeding recipes).

Hayley says, "I love the Healthy Active Pet raw dog food recipes and it was crazy once I crunched the numbers and saw how expensive the big raw food delivery brands were and how I am saving $3,692 a year!

We were mind blown when I started following the Healthy Active Pet recipes and got Hodges food costs down to $63.5 a week! I was previously using a subscription dog food company where I was spending $127 a week on!

Hodge eats 1kg a day as he’s a big boy but I also need to keep his diet lean. One of our favourite recipes is the beef and chicken neck from the Healthy Active Pet raw food recipes. Hodge is usually pretty picky with his veggies but he literally ate this bowl clean.

I started by bulk buying the mince from my butcher at $10kg, I also purchase my veggies in the larger bags at the supermarket as you can just freeze the excess and use them the following week. We also opt for frozen Cauliflower as it’s cheaper overall.

When I prepare this raw food dog food recipe I make two weeks worth as when buying in bulk I learnt I am saving $3,692 per year!

We mix our raw dog food recipes up to keep thing interesting for Hodge but bulk buying is the key.

We also invested in a deep freeze so we could freeze his meals straight away so they were always fresh offer defrosted.

Hodge absolutely loves to eat a raw diet. I’ve noticed a huge difference in his skin, fur and overall health.

I can’t recommend Healthy Active Pet recipes and their new Healthy Dog Happy Dog Book enough (P.S you can get the book in all book stores plus in David Jones and Big W)
