Let me send you the link to the RAW co-op I use in our area. It will help you a lot with prices. For instance a 40 lb. case of chicken backs is $16 and for 3 dogs it should last about 3 weeks for one meal.

I started with chicken leg quarters/chicken backs and BARF burgers (there is a recipe). I've since incorporated turkey necks, duck necks, various meat grinds (meat/bone/organ/organic veggies) and fish. I sometimes add plain yogurt, cottage cheese, kelp powder, salmon oil, and I frequently add eggs.

There is also a calculator out there to determine how much you need to feed. Buddah is about 60-65 pounds and I feed her roughly 1-2% of her body weight because she gets fat quickly. Otis is 65ish pounds and I feed him 2-3% of his body weight. Max is 80 pounds and I also feed him 1-2% for the same reasons as Buddah. Both Junie and Mama are right around 35 pounds and I feed them 2-3% of their body weight.

RAW is a very eyeball it as you go, if they start getting fat, scale it back. If they start looking thin, feed more.
