It may sound like a silly question, but it’s not. It’s important to know the best ways to store your pet’s food, as it may prevent spoilage which can affect the health of your pet. Here are a few key things to keep in mind when storing your pet’s food.

Never buy bags of dry food that will last for more than 6 weeks. Smaller bags are always better. This may mean buying more bags or freezing some of the dry food.  Once you open the bag of dry food oxygen, humidity and light become the spoilers of your pet’s food. Always keep the food in the original bag and either roll the top down and clip the bag shut or you can place the bag in an air tight container.

Canned food should never be kept in the fridge for more than 7 days and best if you have it covered with a lid.

It’s important to store your pet’s food properly to keep it fresh and to maximize the nutrients. Overexposure of oxygen can damage the nutrients in the food and cause any fatty oils in the food to become rancid.
