Is your dog becoming more expensive to feed? According to dog food company Harringtons, over half of dog owners struggle to find affordable, high-quality meals for their furry friends. But fear not, here are four ways you can keep your pup well fed without breaking the bank.
1. Snack Attack
Add some variety to your dog's diet with homemade savoury snacks. You can use extras from your supermarket shop to create delicious treats. For example, dried apple slices or a frozen carrot soaked in chicken broth are both affordable options recommended by Battersea Dogs Home.
2. Sniff Out a Deal
Premium dog foods with quality ingredients provide better nutrition without unnecessary fillers. Buying in bulk can help you save money, as long as you can use the food before it expires. As an example, you can currently get Harringtons' Super-foods Adult Chicken with Vegetables 1.7kg for £5.50 at Asda, instead of the usual £6.50.
3. Bake Off
For a budget-friendly treat, rspca.org.uk has a recipe for banana-and-peanut-butter treats. The ingredients include whole wheat flour, peanut butter, mashed banana, and vegetable stock. Just be sure to check the ingredients in the peanut butter, as xylitol is toxic to dogs. You can try Bugalugs dog peanut butter, now reduced from £5.99 to £4.99 at Amazon.co.uk.
4. Box of Goodies
Dog food subscriptions can be a great value if you find the right deals. Butternut boxes are tailored to your dog's needs and have an average cost of £1.60 per day. You can currently get 25% off your first two boxes at butternutbox.com. Tails.com offers a similar service and is currently offering 50% off your first box order.
Remember to always consult your vet for advice before making any changes to your dog's diet.
