You'll feed less of a high quality food than you will Pedigree, so some of the cost will be made up. Also, you should consider that a dog on an excellent diet should have fewer vet visits over his lifespan than one who eats the canine equivalent of junk food. If you want to learn more about canine nutrition and get some suggestions on foods that are a little higher in quality but which you might be able to afford until you get out of school, visit The Dog Food Project at [linkhttp://www.mordanna.com]www.mordanna.com[/link].
Glad you got to the vet, though, and that your dog is feeling better.

"If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys." - Chief Dan George
"The fidelity of a dog is a precious gift demanding no less binding moral responsibilities than the friendship of a human being. The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth can ever be." ~ Konrad Lorenz
