Feed Wolfworthy for Less Than Half a Cup of Coffee a Day
My Grandmother had a great saying when we were growing up, “You get what you pay for.” We certainly weren’t well off but she believed quality would last longer and be a better investment in the long run. Well, this idea has kind of stuck with me over the years, so when we made Wolfworthy we decided when it came to feeding our family dog this was one area we could not cut back on without feeling we were looking for savings in the wrong place. Sure we could have bulked out her food with cheaper ingredients like rice or lower grade meat but was this really saving us in the long run? And when I say savings I don’t just mean money. I am talking about health, weight and energy levels – the whole thing.
When we were refining the makeup of our food we would stop now and again for a coffee. Now when I have my coffee, I want a fresh grind, creamy milk, deep froth and a bit of coffee house jazz music too – costs me about £2 and I enjoy it! To feed our family dog Wolfworthy (and she’s not a small dog, by the way, 38kg to be exact) costs us £2 a day – the price of a coffee. Now when people stop me in the street and say,
‘Ooooh, I bet she takes some feeding’,
I say, ‘Not really, you’d be surprised, the price of a coffee actually…’
Do you know what Bella gets for the price of a coffee? Real meat and vegetables, no grain, no artificial preservatives, no artificial colours, no artificial flavours, salt or sugar. This is what she gets immediately in the bowl but what is she getting in the long run? - The best chance at a healthy, long life, fewer illnesses, trips to the vets and a lower risk of obesity. You know what I get from it – Peace of Mind. I mean, I know I’ve done right by her and that’s good enough for me.
By the way, for medium sized dogs like Spaniels and Beagles (about 14kg) your daily investment is 98p – that’s half a cup of coffee! And who drinks half a cup of coffee…. If your looking for a good investment, feeding your dog for 2 days for the price of a coffee has got to be up there.
