I have my 4 year old dane on a low carb diet which consist of 50% home cooked high protein meals and 50% fresh pet vital complete meals. I live in Brooklyn and the amount I spend on food seems to grow every week. The freshpet vital only last 3-4 days but is 35 dollars a bag. Has anyone found any other low carb alternatives. Right not I am spending about $250 a month at least on food. I will continue if this is the best option but I know there are people who have a wealth of knowledge in this area! I am open to suggestions and advice. 🙂

We love the Nutrition blog , Wyatt gets some awesome cool treats we've started making for our babies! Some of the cookbooks through the Tripawds Amazon Blog have "sneak peaks" so you can flip though certain chapters before buying. We also checked a few out from the library I work at before deciding what to buy. And we HAD to buy the books because I write all over the recipes and that's a big no no at work! Sheba is eating low carbs right now and gets rabbit, cottage cheese, spinach and squash with the Dr. Dobias supplements. However, our recipe was balanced for a healthy dog so we're working on getting it balanced for Sheba's health concerns. We spend about $500-600/mo to feed the two German Shepherds, sometimes more if we can get a bulk amount of meat or a new exotic meat to try. But I'm guessing the cost of "specialty" meats in Brooklyn is just as expensive as the San Francisco area.
