Anybody know what are the cheapest dry food that has zero or has only 1-2 minor red items? I don’t really mind low protein % since my dog gets plenty of protein in his raw meat meals.
Affordable foods with few red items are Victor Grain Free, Victor Select, and all of the Earthborn Holistic kibbles (grain free and grain inclusive).
Also Dr. Tim’s grain free and grain inclusive.
Whole Earth Farms, both with and without grains do not have any red ingredients and are budget friendly.
Depends what you’re looking for as far as “cheap” . In relativity, things like Fromm’s, Simply Nourish + many of the others that have already been mentioned are less than other 4-5 star food choices. Authority Grain Free runs pretty reasonable as well

Thanks for the suggestions! By cheap, I mean around $1.50/pound or less. Think I’ll try that Whole Earth Farms or Earthborn Holistic.

Nutrisource regular line runs around $1.66/lb.
Pure Balance is cheap too, if you don’t mind Walmart.
Ever thought of couponing? I get foods like Wellness for about $1.75 a pound (or less! Best I’ve done on Wellness is $2 for every 4 pound bag). I recently paid $30 for 30 pound of Pet Botanics, 20 pounds of cat litter, several cans of cat food, and a bag of cat treats. It would have costed about $150 with out coupons (which I’d never pay LOL). And thats not even the best I’ve done!
Zach’s Quality Dog Food is $0.66/LB for their puppy food and their most expensive is still only $0.75/LB and their food is rated 4.5 stars on here and ingredients only have 3 red: Brewers dried yeast, beet pulp, and garlic. That’s the same with all their products. I currently have my 2 boys Pit/(boxer/lab) mixes and they love it and are doing well on it. I purchased their puppy product and it was $32.50 for 50lb bag. For a 4.5 even a 4 star food that’s unheard of, i did the research as it seemed questionable for that price but it all seems to check out as a good quality company and product. I have posted this brand recently on a few blogs but that’s because i do believe it to be a good quality kibble that’s extremely affordable and way cheaper than other comparable products at least in my recent findings, hope this helps.
Where can I buy Zach’s Dog Food in Minnesota? I foster a lot of dogs and the price of great dog food is killing me!
Zach’s has a Facebook page and here’s is a link to their website with a find store option:
Also check out Victor’s website, find a dealer tab, if you can buy it locally it is very budget friendly also:
