Subject:         Can I buy cheap Dog Food?

Hope you don't mind me popping in since I am not a regular visitor.

My situation in life has changed and I need to make budget cuts. I am literally trying to cut everything and anything I can within reason (including a tight budget for my grocery bill too--of which dog food is one item)

One thing I am considering is buying "cheap" or store brand dog food for my two dogs. Right now I buy name-brand dry dog food that is supposed to be for senior dogs as well as good for their coats. They are both 10-years-old and one of them has flaky skin. I buy them wet food as a treat, but like the dry to keep their teeth tartar free.

The store brand food is a lot less expensive. I was wondering if it's still "good." I just keep thinking when I grew up we fed our dog table scraps and I know that wasn't balanced for a dog's nutritional needs. But all of our dogs lived long, healthy lives. Surely modern dog food, even if it's store brand, is better balanced. But I've always had this aversion to it.

Also related. My dogs are healthy, but older. I am worried about future vet bills. Does anyone know of pet insurance that actually covers pet care? Not one of these "insurance" plans that costs a mint and covers nothing except routine vaccines plus unnecessary tests for everything under the sun. I can budget for routine care and heartworm meds, etc. I am looking for something that would cover me if a dog suddenly got sick, needed extensive care, etc.

Thanks!
