As pregnant & lactating Cavaliers (as well as weaning puppies) consume a lot of dog food, we set out to find a high quality kibble that we could confidently use in our program and ultimately recommend to families as well. We were worried about costs, but more so about quality, recalls, source of ingredients and whether or not our dogs all liked the food.
Here were our non-negotiable requirements:
When ultimately chose PawTree brand and have never looked back. However, we had to find a way to make the cost competitive with the lower quality foods on Amazon or Chewy (or on the grocery store isles). Here is the strategy we (and many of our adoptive families) have used to keep PawTree products as reasonably priced as possible:
This purchase should last you for a minimum of four months if your puppy consumes roughly half a cup of food every day. A typical package of food contains 36 cups. When you shop for an extra-large bag of food, you actually get three ordinary bags, equivalent to 108 cups of nutrition (Even with kibble for training and playtime, it will last for over four months). Gastro Pro Plus will last more than four months as a dog only consumes 1/3 of a capsule. Finally, we discovered that a small salmon oil squirt suffices for a puppy to reap all the advantages. Therefore, a large bottle will last until your next order.
