Is dog food cheaper at your wholesale club?

I was just wondering if anyone knew if dog food was less expensive at BJs, Sam's Club .... or whatever wholesale club you belong to?

  • Cheaper isn't always better. Be sure to read the ingredient labels. The food should have a named meat and/or meat meal as the first/second ingredient. Choose a food with NO corn, wheat, soy, byproducts, bha/bht, menadione, or artificial colors/preservatives. I few good brands are Canidae, Taste of the Wild, Wellness, Orijen/Acana, & Blue Buffalo (there are MANY others). These foods you will NOT find at a grocery store, Walmart, or wholesale club. The only good ones I've heard of is from Costco called Kirkland Signature and Nature's Domain (grain free). They are made by Diamond. Kirkland Signature is comparable to Diamond Naturals and Nature's Domain is comparable to Taste of the Wild. They are pretty cheap from what I've heard. You can go to http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/ & http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/ to get ratings for just about every brand there is.

  • Well my dog has noxious fumes out her rear so she is on a special diet. We get it at Tractor supply and it is a good price. Less intestine fortitude. I have no sense of smell so I could care less but the rest of the house hold appreciates it greatly.

  • I got a 50 lb bag of name brand dog food at Sam's Club for $20 so that's a lot cheaper then WalMart
