Today, my dog became too old to eat dry food. A $9 bag used to last him 3 weeks. The equivalent in the cheapest canned food is $63. FML

If he’s anything like the dogs I’ve owned, he has made your life so great for so many years, you should be happy to suck it up and pay a lot to make his remaining time on Earth pleasant.

Geez, that's crazy expensive. Back when I had my dog, the wet food we'd buy her cost only £10 ($13.88) for 24 tins. She was a smaller dog (Cocker Spaniel), so that would last her about 3 weeks. It wasn't even a supermarket's own brand either - leading, named brand.

Obviously, if you have a larger dog, they'll eat more and the cost will go up, however.

Exactly! Why have an animal if you're not willing to put money out and feed them decent food? My normal dog food is approximately $60 a month. I couldn't imagine the crap $9 would get you :-(

Dude, if you were feeding your dog food that cheap, that dog is not going to be very healthy. I buy my 3 big dogs food for $60 a bag and that lasts only a week but it's some of the healthiest stuff you can get but it's worth it to take batter care of your pups.

Different dogs have different needs. I feed my dog cheap store brand, my vet agrees that he's perfectly healthy and that it's good for him. Just because food is cheap doesn't mean it's bad. If they don't have allergies or special needs cheap is often perfectly fine.
