Between routine visits to the vet, grooming, food, treats, toys and pet supplies the American Pet Products Association says some studies estimate that a dog owner will spend $11,000 on a dog over the lifetime of the pet. I’m sure every dog owner would agree that our pets are more than worth that much money. But I’m just as sure everyone would also agree that they’d love to find ways to shave those costs. One way to reduce those expenses is to determine where’s the cheapest place to buy dog food online. And that’s what I set out to do.
Wow! I had no idea there are so many websites where you can buy dog food. No wonder it’s easy to get confused about which sites you’ve been to and where you can save the most money when you buy dog food online.
So we’ve done the comparison-work for you. After comparing prices of hundreds of different dog foods across dozens of sites, there are two winners in the price war. The two sites with the widest selection and the lowest prices are PetFoodDirect and Pet Flow. After comparing these two sites against all the others, we then compared them against each other. Each of these sites had a lower price half the time when compared with the other site. But without a doubt these two sites are where the cheapest place to buy dog food online can be found.
Here’s a random sampling of brands, selections and package sizes to give you an idea of pricing at these two sites.
