The cost of raw pet food can vary greatly. If you are buying pre-made small packages from a pet food store it will be a higher cost compared to sourcing food from butchers and buying in bulk. The cost you will pay depends a lot on the effort you put forth to locate affordable sources. In many instances raw food can actually cost less than a "premium" kibble.
But to gauge the true cost of a pet's diet there is more to measure than simply the price of the food. For a true picture the impact on the animal's health needs to be assessed and also how the animal's health affects their human family's: time, emotions, and financial resources.
A species appropriate diet gives the body ideal fuel so the innate functions of all body systems can be carried out efficiently. Only when all systems are running in peak condition does health blossom. Infections can be halted, viruses are resisted, toxins are expelled, bones mend, cuts heal & parasites are unable to flourish.
