Don't buy small animal food at pet stores!

Posted by   + Show Post

No, instead go to feed stores.  

At the pet store a 3 lb bag of chinchilla food can easily run $12

At the feed store we get a 25 lb bag of Mazuri (which is one of the best from what I've read) Chinchilla food for $15.

That's $18 for 25 lbs instead of $100

At the pet store a 5 lb bag of rabbit food is around $13

We buy 50 lb bags for $15 at the feed store.  

That's $15 for 50 lbs instead of $130

At the pet store a 4 lb bag of guinea pig food will be around $10-15

At the feed store we bought a 50 lb bag for $18.

That's $18 for 50 lbs instead of $125

And no, it's not lower quality food either.  It's just much cheaper through a pet store in bulk!  We buy chinchilla food yearly, guinea pig food will probably be once every couple of years, and rabbit food lasts us about 6 months (we have 2 rabbits).  This saves us about $380 per year!

Just thought I would share.  Hopefully I can save someone some money!  It really adds up fast!

I've never been to tractor supply so idk. I would just Google it. They are easier to find than pet stores where I live which is another bonus for me. 5 miles to the feed store or 40 to the pet store.
