Thank you for your recent letter.
Your frustration and confusion is because we purposely do not prescribe specifics because that is not what healthy nutrition is about. Rather, we try to teach principles that will empower people to feed intelligently on their own. This is counter to brands that pretend that pets need precise doses, specific shapes of nuggets, different foods for different times of the day, ages, breeds, etc.
If you have reviewed our information you will see that we do not advocate feeding any one food exclusively. The "verbosity" you note is because it is very difficult to communicate this concept to a public brainwashed with "100% complete" pet food propaganda. It is not marketing, as you assert, since if people were to follow our advice exactly they would feed no packaged foods, even ours.
The cost of feeding Wysong depends upon many factors, including which foods you feed, how you rotate them, the activity level and size of your pets.
The price for each product is listed on each respective product page on the Wysong website. You can find our feeding guidelines here: feeding guidelines
. The feeding guidelines are a good place to start (feed based upon your pet's current weight), and then adjust accordingly. Remember that the guidelines are based upon averages; you will need to adjust them to meet the needs of your pet, depending on biochemical individuality, activity level, age, breed and so forth.
Also, for your reference, the Archetype™ bag contains approximately 5 cups of food, the Archetype Buffet™ bag contains approximately 13 cups of food, and there are 8 burgers in each canister of Archetype Burgers™.
