Storage Tips: A Guide to Increasing the Shelf-Life of Pet Food

As pet owners, it’s important to provide your pet with fresh and balanced meals, to ensure it’s overall well-being – and this is where proper pet food storage tips come into play.

With our overall warm temperatures, leaving a can of open pet food can quickly result in it to turning bad. Not only is this bad for your pet’s health, having to constantly stock up on food for your furry pal can also be tough on the wallet. As such, we’ve come up with a list of handy tips on pet food storage, to increase its shelf-life.

Seal Them Up Storage Tips: A Guide to Increasing the Shelf-Life of Pet Food

In order to maximise cost-savings, pet owners may then purchase pet food in bulk quantities. Once the food bag is opened, it’s important to store the unused food in a sealed container and in a cool and dry place. When doing so, ensure that the container is dry, to avoid moisture from seeping into your pet’s kibbles.

Always Refrigerate

Canned foods, on the other hand, come in smaller quantities and depending on your pet’s appetite, can be fed to your pet as a meal itself or a treat.

Storage Tips: A Guide to Increasing the Shelf-Life of Pet Food

Unopened canned food usually comes with long shelf lives, spanning across two to five years and are readily available at Singapore’s pet shops. Once a can is opened, it’s essential to immediately transfer the leftovers into an airtight containing before refrigerating it. Also, ensure that the food is consumed within a maximum of 4 days.

Handle Ingredients With Care

In addition to store-bought food, you may enjoy preparing homemade meals for your furry friends. During the food preparation process, ensure all ingredients are washed and kitchen equipment clean. Again, remember to store the food in an airtight containing before refrigerating it.

In addition to these tips, experts such as vets in Singapore also advise observing basic hygiene when handling pet food. For instance, wash your hands before and after handling pet food and that you clean your pet’s’ food bowl thoroughly after every meal.
