This year, Americans spent a whopping $21 billion dollars on food for our beloved furkids! That’s a billion dollar increase over last year, and that number is estimated to increase even more next year as we adopt more pets and continue to feed our dogs higher quality, better foods.
I’m sure we’d all agree our pets are worth every penny, but wouldn’t you love to know how to shave some of those expenses? One way is to determine where to buy the cheapest dog food online. I set out to do just that.
There are so many websites where you can buy dog food. Many of them offer prices much lower than you’ll find in pet stores. But, be careful. Once you add them to your shopping cart and calculate shipping costs, you may end up paying well over what you’d pay in a brick and mortar store.
So we’ve done the comparison work for you.
Here’s a sampling of several high quality dog foods, descriptions and package sizes along with their pricing – with the shipping included. In the examples below, Wag.com offers free shipping above $35, Chewy.com offers free shipping over $45 and Amazon has free shipping with a Prime account, which we included in our calculations. Pet Food Direct offers free shipping coupon codes which we did not search for, as their prices were rarely the lowest.
In our research, most often we find Amazon to be the cheapest place to buy dog food! See below:
