May 2016 Expenses
Food - $295.54
Health - $24.77
Treats - $34.70
Total - 355.01
A bit more than the last few couple of months (I think) but not ridiculous by all means.
I budget $300 a month for food, and rarely reach or exceed that. Last month, I felt like I was behind the ball in terms of dog food, and spent time scrambling to find food. I need to get some bulk soon, as opposed to 20-40 pounds here and there. I purchased ground lamb and beef heart from a local butcher, green tripe, duck necks and turkey hearts from My Pet Carnivore, and pork roasts, ground beef, whole whiting, chicken leg quarters, and chicken hearts/gizzards from grocery stores.
Health expenses was only the cost of Bruce's Rx. Neeko is due for her yearly wellness visit this month, so that total will be quite a bit higher for June.
Treats were some I and Love and You bully sticks, and I and Love and You gullet sticks purchased at the grocery store, along with some pig ears at Pet Supplies Plus. I know some are opposed to pig ears, but my dogs enjoy them, and do just fine with them.
All in all, it was a reasonable month, though I have gotten quite spoiled lately with my food expenses typically falling in around $200.
