Be sure to check the expiration dates. The food doesn't go bad the day after expiration. You don't want to buy so much food at one time. Buy a new bag of food every four to six weeks. Place the bag directly into the pet food container the bag is designed to help keep the food fresh. Also, roll the bag tightly and put a bag clip on it. Store in a cool and dry location. The same applies to treats.
Always keep the original bag in the event the food gets recalled.
Throw away any foods that appear spoiled or contaminated. Throw away any bulging cans or foods that look or smell. Pick up any uneaten portions of wet food after four hours. Dry food shouldn't be out in the bowl for more than 24 hours.
Wash bowls once a week.
