I went back to PetValu again last night and asked them to order me the larger bag of wellness core...its 12 lbs and is $52 plus tx...As it stands now I pay 12.99 for the 2lbs and 34.99 for the 5 lb bag...So I can save by buying the larger bag... How long would a bag that size stay fresh ? Does anyone freeze their dry cat food ?....However my cats eat mostly canned grain free and they won't give me a deal if I buy a case...I think I am going to have to switch to raw...seems like the only way to save some money...Or switch them off of the grain free canned...which I really would rather not because they are all doing so well on it....even my cat prone to crystals..I'm still looking for an online supplier...I just gotta cut the cost of my cat food...
If you're going through the small bag as quickly as you mentioned in your original post, your large bag should last more than long enough. You may want to invest in an airtight storage container if you're worried about it being fresh. You can buy them at any pet store. I've just been using large ice cream tubs (4L) and my cats haven't seemed to mind. They are just a pain to store!

Try www.petacular.ca. They are London-based and you can order online. Not sure what their shipping costs are like, but they do offer "by the case" prices. The websites a little tricky to navigate through....you might originally end up at the dry food, but if you scroll all the way to the bottom of each brand page, they will usually have links to other products of the same brand...ie. canned, larger cans.

I did investigate them, but found their case prices to be similiar to single can and not worth it to pay shipping... end up paying more per can. (37.99 case of Wellness, or 3.19 per can which adds up to 38.28....savings of 29cents)

I hate to hijack this thread, but I have been following it closely, with lay offs at my work I will potentially need a plan to cut costs.

Sharky: I notice a lot of people mentioned Taste of the Wild, but I always find you never comment on it. Even if the spreadsheet Sohni so nicely created for us did not include Taste of the Wild. Why is this out of curiosity?

Thanks!

Snake Lady, when you listed the ingredients for dog and cat Core, you bolded the ingredients that you were concerned about. Both the cat and dog formulas have manganese Proteinate but you only bolded the one in the dog food. Did you bold it because you didn't like the MP in the dog food but it's okay in the cat food? Just wondering...
Pet valu is starting too, obviously i cannot speak for all of them but mine and fwiw small town, now has chicken soup and TOTW came in with it since their the same company.

I find most of the stores sell the same products.. it is a new thing though, like last mth or so.

Is 16 lb as big as you can get Taste of the Wild?

I have ordered from petacular in the past..they didn't have wellness core at the time..I ordered some go canned for my dogs...they wouldn't eat it...so thinking what am I going to do with 12 cans...fed alittle to my cats...and one got very sick...$ 400 vet bill...lesson learned not to feed dog food to cats....I did get the cats merrick and they liked it but could only get small cans they were eating 2 a day so it only less than one week....And with shipping I didn't save any money ...
