This month was ridiculously inexpensive, even more so than last month.
I track my dog-related expenses for a variety of reasons, but mostly to hold myself accountable. I also do for future budgeting, and to give folks an idea of what it costs to raise large, raw-fed dogs in the Midwest.
August 2016 Expenses
Total - $119.45
I spent a little over $100 on my dogs last month. Success. Next month will be more expensive, as my freezer is nearly barren.
The food that I purchased this month was some chicken leg quarters from the grocery store, and "dog food" (ground beef lung, spleen, liver, trim) from a local butcher. I also bought two four pound boxes of The Honest Kitchen from Pet Supplies Plus, as they were on sale for over 50% off.
The lone health expense was, of course, Bruce's prescription.
Money spent on grooming went to a DIY dog wash for Neeko yesterday.
For treats, I purchased a bag of dehydrated trachea pieces. All the dogs love.
Once again, I am very pleased with how little I spent last month. September will definitely be more expensive.
