Question How much do you pay for Wellness canned food for CATS?


I've started to feed my cat Wellness canned food recently & I was wondering if there are any ways to get them cheaper.

I ilve in Montreal and for 5.5oz can, paying $1.50 before tax. So when I buy 4 cans, that's $6.73 after tax. That's a bit pricy...or it isn't?

I used to give my cat dried food, but after reading all threads, I've decided to switch it to canned. But the price of them becoming an issue.

If you know any better way & place to buy, please let me know!

That sounds about right! I buy the large cans and I think I pay about $2.30. Well worth the price. If you could see the difference in my 12 year old Himmie since I changed her food last year, you wouldn't think about the price, well worth every penny.

I pay 2.69$ for a 354g (or 15.2 oz) can.
I think it comes out slightly less expensive if you buy the large cans.

You can ask your retailer to order you a few cases, maybe he can give you a discount that way - and yes, it's well worth the money!

Hi everyone!
Thank you for replying to my question quickly

Buying bigger cans will do the trick! Good for the environment for less empty cans too

I pay $1.59 a can at one store, and $1.69 a can (5.5oz) at another.

One of the stores has a 'buy 12 cases get the 13th for free' deal, but they are often out of cases

I tried the larger cans once, but it was hard for me to split it up - both cats receive a good ration of the food. I might try it again though - it is a bit cheaper..
