It’s important to store your pet’s food properly for a few reasons. One, you don’t want to give your pet food that’s gone bad; secondly, you’ll save money by not purchasing more food more often than you have to! Your Montgomery, TX vet tells you more below.
Canned food keeps much better than dry kibble does. In fact, canned food may stay good for years if kept in ideal conditions! Remember: heat, light, and moisture are the enemies of your pet’s food—try to keep your pet’s wet food in a dry, dark, room-temperature area if you plan on storing it for an extended period of time.
Once you’ve opened a can of your pet’s wet food, it should keep in the refrigerator for a week or two before it’s time to throw it out.
It’s likely that the bag your pet’s dry food came in is perfect for storing it in. Most of the time, that’s all you need to do. Just make sure your pet’s dry kibble is kept away from moisture or excessive heat.
