Saving Money On Dog Treats

Caution: Check with our vet before trying anything listed below

Dog Treats are just like anything else. Homemade is cheaper.  


We don't have to buy the fancy prepackaged stuff found at pet stores that is mainly marketed to humans anyway.  \\See ideas here: http://www.stubbypuddin.com/2014/05/treats.html

But what if money is tight and even homemade is expensive?  We can simply add water to meat. The flavor is still there but we use less.  If our pets are fine with raw meat, that can go further as well. Since raw is about 80 percent water.

Still too expensive?  Here are some ways to feed treats without spending any extra money

- Let's say you are about eat a 10 ounce piece of chicken breast. Before seasoning, cut off 2 ounces and put aside for the dog. You won't even miss it.
- Or let's say you are about to make yourself a chick pea salad. Take out 10 chickpeas and set aside for training
_- Right before eating a can of salt free sardines, poor the liquid on some kibble. Make the kibble extra tasty



But what if you prefer the prepackaged stuff but don't want to spend a lot of money?  Usually convenience food for humans is cheaper than convenience food for pets.

Here are some examples

Bonito flakes for cats (or dogs):  12 dollars for 3.5 ounces. http://amzn.com/B003P4I0MI
