Default Dang. It only lasts FOUR days!!!!!!

I was really hoping the big bag of S&C freeze dried would last me at least a week. The dogs, while they will eat anything, LOVE S&C. So I had considered going straight to that and just rotate the flavors (and some ZP at times too). But it only lasts four days That's alot for such a short amount of time. Boooo! That's roughly 7.50 dollars a day too feed the boys. Hmm....I wish I could get my hands on frozen since I know it costs less. But by the time I pay for shipping frozen goods, I may as well pay for the freeze dried.
Does anyone know where to get frozen S&C without super high shipping costs?

I just started feeding the raw today so i have no idea of what you could do. I hope someone has an idea, or suggestion. Do any of your local stores sell it or something similar?

How much are they eating of the freeze dried? I use those occasionally and Brody gets half of a patty for a meal. Maybe you are feeding too much?

Find a small/natural/holistic pet store in your area and ask them to order it for you if they dont already. The freeze dried are exactly twice the price of the frozen, and since youre feeding a boston as well I would imagine they arent lasting too long! My husband bet me that he could find a good price on frozen online, and he could not. Shipping is outrageous bc they have to STAY frozen, so they are shipping them express. My local natural pet store does not charge me any extra to order it in, they dont carry it but special order it for us. Have you already checked S&Cs website for stores near to you? We have one about 25 miles from us, but I pay the same per bag whether I buy it there or have it ordered.

Really? That's all? How much does Brody weigh? Gunner just turned 6 lbs so I've been feeding as per directions on the bag. Two patties a day for his size. Hercules is about 21 lbs (bag says 6 patties for 22 lbs) so I give him the full 6 and he looks great.
I will say that Gun is looking "thick." Not fat by any means. He still has a waist and I can feel ribs. Just fuller. So I don't know if that's too much food or he's just starting to fill out (he's 8 months now).

We live in a pretty small area. There's not a whole of of natural/holistic anything around here! I'm gonna go check S&C website to see if there's anyone close selling.

That's what I thought. There's NO WHERE in the state of Louisiana that sells any form of S&C.
