    Default Dogs

    I am something of a fanatic dog lover.
    I have three in the DR and three in the US.
    They eat a lot.
    In the US I buy a 50# bag of Purina Dog Chow for about $25.00
    Here in Sosua it is nearly double the price at Playero.

    I tried the little agriculture vet supply on 5 going toward the hospital and the price was about the same.
    Anyone found a less expensive way to buy quality dog food here?

    is it Alican....?
    I pay 1300 pesos
    Playero has Cannovi at 1600

    Best budget food - and quality is the Bravo house brand
    5-600 per 20lb bag
    Hi protein content.... 22-23%
    equal to Royal Canin - within a % point

    I have 4 large dogs here...RD

    Campeon...... 1250pesos per 40lb

    My wife takes a look at our friends dog in europe, ask what they eat ( purina of course ), ....... and sneers and tells me in spanish that the purina has sedatives in it.....lol
    To be fair she doesnt really have a comparison point as our dr dogs seem to be a cross between werewolves and direwolves

    They get half purina and half chicken or salami or raw beef.
    In the campo you can buy the chickens that died during the night at la pollera really, really cheap.
    Same, some salamis are less than 100 pesos per lb.

    In La Vega, those chickens that died during the night were bought by POLLOS AL CARBON in the Avenida Rivas....no Joke , i had a a friend who had three granjas in Santo Cerro..they would die from gripe or whatever course. Enjoy your pollo al Carbon.

    Yeah, they are fit for human consumption---- supposedly.
    They often die of suffocation and or heat. The meat has a darker aspect ( as they weren't emptied of their blood at the time of death ).

    These days i am in "competition " with other folk for those chickens....... but in their case it is for human consumption------- seems times are hard-er

    We’ve fed our Dominican dogs (always at least 2, usually 4-5) Campeon for many years. About 1200 pesos for 40 pounds, the agrovet delivers it to the door.
