How should I store my pet food?

Dry diets should be stored in their original bag – if it is a Ziploc closure, ensure that the bag is resealed between feedings. The ideal recommendation for storage is that the bag is kept in a suitable dry and airtight plastic or steel container, with a lid. The food is best fed within one month of opening, but will be fine for up to 2 months as long as the bag is being stored properly. Remember to store it in a cool, dry place and reseal the bag and container after each feeding.

Canned diets, once opened, need to be covered and refrigerated in a sealed plastic or ceramic container and used within 24-36hrs maximum. If your pet does not like cold/refrigerated food, try heating it up to room temperature before feeding (please note: if you use a microwave put the product in an appropriate microwave-safe container and always check temperature before feeding).

Please remember to wash your pet’s dish regularly and thoroughly rinse it with clean water, as remaining food particles can attract bacteria and insects.
