Does anyone have a list of budget friendly cruelty free dog foods? No just vegetarian/vegan but ones that don’t test on animals. I found only one list but none of them are budget friendly! Thanks
GREAT topic Carrie!
Could you possibly share a link to the list you found?
I just started researching to see what I could find. I’m currently using Farmina for one of my dogs, and they claim to be cruelty free. I think it’s also a budget friendly food, although that term is subjective, and its excellent quality for the price.
Sure Betsy here is the list. Some are just treats and some are not sold in the US. http://www.iamscruelty.com/nottested.asp We use Natural Balance which is about $50 per 30 lb bag. That does not last us long so anything a bit cheaper but still a decent food would be spectacular. However I will not support a company that tests on animals!
When was this list posted? Now that Nat Bal is owned by Del Monte, are they still able to make that claim? On a quick glance through that list, Fromm’s and Solid Gold will both be a bit cheaper than the natural balance bags, of the ones I’ve used on there. Solid Gold has 1/2 their products manufactured by Diamond, so you have to be careful there as well.
While generally not super budget friendly, The Honest Kitchen, is committed to the humane treatment of the animal proteins used in their products.
Outside of THK & Farmina, I can’t think of others. I did want to say that if paying $50 for 30 pounds is expensive to you, I doubt you’ll find anything of any quality any cheaper. For *me* a food that’s $50, regular non sale price, makes me wonder how good the food is. We all have different criteria in what we want in a food. If you want cruelty free, just like human food, you’re going to have to pay for it.
