    For what size bag? I know Diamond is pretty cheap, and it's an alright food, but not the best there is. I've heard of 4health which I know a lot of people recommend as a cheap food, but if you sacrifice money you're going to be sacrificing quality as well.

    I feed Diamond Naturals, (No Corn, No Soy, No Wheat) My older altered bitch gets the Performance bag, ad my younger intact dog gets the Extreme Athlete bag.

    Diamond Naturals and 4Health are two that come to mind.

    I kind of think you get what you pay for. I feed Chicken Soup right now, but am about to switch to Taste of the Wild. Chicken Soup is 37.00 for a 35 lb bag in my area, which I really don't think is all that expensive. It's $1.06 per pound.

    Taste of the Wild is $42.00 for a 35 lb bag, which is $1.20 per pound. Either way, it's less than $2.00 per day to feed my dog.

    I guess it's all how you look at it, and I do only have one 40 pound dog (soon to get another, but only a 12 pound dog), but I don't think $2.00 a day is too much to spend on feeding my dog.

    I think Chicken Soup is about as affordable as you can get. The only decent foods I know that are cheaper are Diamond Naturals and Kirkland. 4Health actually costs a bit more per pound than CS for me.

    I'm not entirely sure, but Natures Recipe is sold at Petsmart and I don't think it's that expensive... it's not the BEST food out there but I also don't think it's bad. It's a whole lot better than other foods they sell there (besides Blue Buffalo, which is kind of high price, IMO).

    I buy a 6lb bag of Acana grain-free and the Grasslands one is around $14.

    My dogs do well on Canidae, and it is not that expensive.

    Kirkland from Costco is really good (110 A+ by grading) as is Natures Recipe which is available at PetCo and PetSmart.

    Oh, the Kirkland is made by the same people that make Diamond and Chicken Soup.
