Who is this raw dog food ebook for?

I wrote this ebook for people who have a dog food budget AND for those who want to feed raw dog food but can’t afford pre-made raw on a regular basis.

But it’s also for nerds like me who enjoy putting their own dog food together. Essentially it’s for anyone interested in raw meal prep for dogs!

To be honest, I wasn’t able to afford pre-made raw for Missy & Buzz, my two Boxer mixes (75 & 50 lb), on a regular basis either.

The cost of pre-made raw for both would have been around $400/month. Definitely out of my budget! 

However, I REALLY wanted to continue to feed them fresh, real food, which is why I became so interested in learning how to make my own raw dog food at home!

So what’s the cost of making your own DIY raw dog food?

Let me share a little math with you.

A 50 lb dog who needs 2% of her target body weight in meat per day eats about 1 lb/day (that’s for a dog who exercises moderately).

That translates into 30 lb/month. 

Now let’s assume that dog does poorly with chicken, which is why you can’t source this (inexpensive) meat.


BUT even if you feed turkey, beef, and lamb, you can get your hands on 30 lb for $70-100, as long as you buy the meat when it’s on sale.

And trust me, I constantly find and buy meat that’s on sale, or inexpensive to begin with. For example, Walmart carries turkey necks for a couple bucks, and my local grocery store marks their ground lamb down to 2.99-4.99/lb on a regular basis.

Those $70-100 are the same price you’d pay for a “high quality” bag of kibble like Annamaet or Orijen.

-> Btw, this is how you do the math:
50 (body weight) x 0.2 (percentage) = 1 lb = 16 oz
