Is it possible to get healthy yet affordable dog food???

This is a general question. I know that most grains are not good for the digestion of dogs. However, I don't want to spend a ton of money on a good dog food. What is a good compromise? What dog food do you suggest? I came across something called Natures Recipes, it is fairly cheap and has a good ingredients list, anyone use or heard of it? I want my dog to life a long and healthy life, and I want to make sure he isn't getting the wrong type of food.

Nature's Recipe isn't bad considering the cost.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Do you live near a Costco? They sell Kirkland "Nature's Domain" which is grain-free, preservative free, byproduct-free dog food. Best dogfood for the price, and four-star quality in dogfood reviews. I have 3 dogs and stock up when I go, as we don't have Costco where I live.

I actually do have a Costco where I live, and I do shop there I just never figured they would sell higher quality dog food. I'll have to check that out.

Check out 4heath at your tractor supplies. I love the food and the vet loved how much healthy my dog is despite having cancer. I have also saw this food work with many health problems.

I feed Neutro Natural. It's in the median price range for food. I don't like to go too cheap or too expensive =P

Taste of the Wild is pretty reasonably priced. Diamond's grain free line seems to be a decent food, too. Even cheaper would be their "Active Naturals" line, which while not grain free is a little better than the average dog food you find at the grocery store.

Feed a good food, you feed less of it, and have less problems with your dog in the end for not feeding them cancer in a bag.
