Are You Making This Common Pet Food Storage Mistake?

Storing pet feeds may impact freshness and may pose health challenges. Unsealed dry pet foods kept away in a warm pantry or garage absorbs moisture encouraging bacterial growth.

Key takeaways:

  • Dry foods are most prone to vitamin degradation the longer that they remain on the shelf.
  • Moisture, heat, time and oxygen are major enemies of dry pet food often promoting bacterial and fungal growth.
  • Once pet food has been unsealed, it should be used up within a period of four weeks to avoid staleness and disease-causing germs.

For this reason, I recommend you avoid buying large-sized bags if you only have one pet or small pets; the food will go stale or bad (and at the very least may lose flavor) before you get a chance to use it up within this four-week, optimal timeframe.
