    @Biscuitsmom This is Canada everything is so more expensive. Only like 35ish million people as you guys have a few zeros more at the end of you 35 lol... I was talking to the petshop lady and she said champion brought their prices to high too fast so they can help financially their new plant yhey open in US. She she clients are going towards other brands now. Prices went up minimum $10 a bag but they shrink it to 25lbs as it use to be over 30lbs. Example today I bought a bag of 2.2kilo which is....4.4lbs for 25$ as I dont want to pay 80 $ and she gets a bad reaction. So for now buying small bags till I see how she's going. I still home cook but she will have one per day and kibbles at night topped with organs n broth. Bit of turmic and ginger.

You wou think would be cheaper where its founded. Ha! And yet I travel often throughout Canada and I would ha8ve to say Alberta is the most expensive province. Worked in White Rock BC very expensive place and still cheaper in food (not houses). Alberta is a spoil yuppy place cause of their oil/patch but now the world is buying elsewhere AB is sure feeling it. Ok that was your economy class of the day hahah.
    the company is Petcurean

    You have to also take into consideration we have a very small privately owned pet store here , think our population is less then 1500, to get to a main line store it is a minimum 1 hr drive one way like say Pet Value so to add the drive cost on of 2 hrs , now are gas is cheap tho at 91.6 a ltr but still that is extra cost when you add it all up . Our pet store brings in for Me only 10 bags at a time think it is the minimum they have to buy I agree to purchase that all from them I also get the 11th bag free in a loyalty program with the food manufacturer . More My worry is and has always been the nutrition in the bag for My dogs always is at the top of My list , they do sell Fromms at the store also and various other supposed top line dog foods but those are all small bag quantities useless to me with 5 large dogs .

    Prettywell any large pet store would sell it , not sure who you have out west , Petvalue , Petsmart ect ect but even the small momand pop petstore might bring it in for you as mine does I would think

    Wow that is too bad . I hope they pay you more up there then! Good luck finding a good food for her, I must just be lucky with Biscuit that she doesn't seem to be sensitive to much. Just chicken gives her runny eyes.
