    Default anyone good with math and food question ?

    I'm now looking or still looking at the Acana duck and pear,,,, but,,,,,,,,, I also like the looks of the HK spruce... The COST (yikes) of the spruce is close to 125.00 for the 10lb box that makes 40 lbs..... the acana is a 25 lb bag for 73.oo.. Where I get so confused is... how does that all work out... lol so, if anyone sees math clearly, and figuring that Hank eats about 2 1/2 cups a day of the spruce.... is that real outrageous??? I wish they measured the Acana in cups not lbs... mabie it would be more clear to me... Anyway... just tell me to shut up if I'm getting to technical here... lol

    If Acana is 26 lbs and 73$ a bag... then 52lbs at 146$ probably for 8 weeks of food.

    THK 40lb box should last about last around same time?
    @helsonwheels or. @Marine91 might have insight, he did a comparison a few years ago like this for Harlea due to all her allergies

    Honest Kitchen costs you 125.00 and will last 16 days = 7.81 per day. If you feed Hank 2 and 1/2 cups a day of Acana it will cost you 73.00 and last for 41 days = 1.78 per day. So basically same 3 numbers of 1,7,8 but rotated around

    The chepest way to go is kibbles for sure. HK n SF is very expensive. Just mix them both (kibbles n HK SF)if you really want to save money. Also never forget what all companies do is a guideline it is NOT in cement that you need to feed them the amounts they say as guidelines. Always keep your dog under the guidelines if you dont want them fat. Especially with kibbles.

    Dont need to do the math @Dollys Owner covered it. Btw what is dollys owner's name?

    all good stuff here and much appreciated! I think that the reason I want to always have a kibble that's good is for my little travels so I don't stress out again.. It's like I just don't want to go anywhere as I'm get all worrisome about POOP! So thanks

    I'm a pharmacist, so I have to do a bit of math from day to day.

    Ahhhhh, now I understand why you know so much in different meds or mixtures! All your posts kept trickling my brain as im also a certified emr and said to myself.....shes got to be in a lab or something. Makes more sense why you're so knowledgeable in your posts. I always said from a young 20yr old I would trust more a pharmacist in meds before any doctors. Meds are your field way before a doc.

    A box of THK lasted 2.5 weeks and a bag of Acana last around 5 weeks feeding Chunky the suggested amounts which for Acana is 2.5 cups per day. He is 64lbs and I don't remember the amount of THK I fed Chunky but it was expensive and went fast

    Acana Duck and Pear is $75.00 and THK Turkey and Parsnip is $97.00 so I am saving a lot and he isn't having tear stain issues anymore which was my fault for not cleaning/drying his face after each meal
