Where you using store your cat and dog food can make a big difference in the quality and freshness once it is opened. Here are some common questions and recommendations for optimal storage for all dry and canned cat and dog food.
For Dry Pet Food
Dry food can be left in your cat or dog’s bowl indefinitely if the bowl is kept in an area that is cool, dry, out of direct sunlight and not subject to contamination by insects and vermin. However, we recommend that your cat or dog’s food bowl is washed and filled fresh each day.
Storing Canned Pet Food
Your pet’s bowl should be emptied of moist or canned food not eaten by your cat or dog within 4 hours if the ambient temperature is above 50°F. Opened cans should be stored in the fridge, at temperatures between 40-45°F, for a maximum of 5-7 days. Any cat or dog food remaining after that time should be thrown out.
Like dry food, canned pet food comes with a use-by date, so always check that, Dr. Klein says. Once you’ve opened it, store it in the fridge for no more than five to seven days, and be sure it’s sealed with a plastic lid – or the old plastic-wrap-plus-rubber-band trick.
