Helpful Pet Food Storage Tips

Methods of pet food storage vary depending on person to person. There are a few ways that you can optimize your pet food storage so it is not only convenient, but more importantly, safe for your pet. 

There are a few points to remember when setting up your pet food storage. You must first think about:

·         The size of your pet

·         Storage bins vs. automatic dispensers

·         Amount of food you want to hold

 The amount of food you buy each month depends heavily on the size of your pet. Bigger animals need more food, pretty simple, huh? To start figuring out how you will store your pet food, you must determine how much your pet eats over the course of one month.

 After measuring how much your pet is roughly eating per month, look at your options. Aside from how much the animal is eating, your storage plans also depends on how much room you have to dedicate to it. You want to make sure that you have the room to support the type of storage unit you plan on utilizing.

Storage bins versus automatic dispensers seems like a tough decision but the answer may be right in front of you. For smaller pets, owners typically use automatic dispensers since they hold more; in some cases, they can hold a month or week’s supply of food.  Owners of larger animals might find storage bins are their only option. This isn’t true. Owners of larger pets can use both the automatic storage and bins. They must first see if the automatic option is actually more convenient then just using storage bins. Remember when using a storage bin, you should stir the old and new pet food together so the bottom layer is not the same stale food that’s been in there for months.

When it comes to storing pet food, the available options ultimately range from person to person. Remember that despite all your choices, the most important aspect of pet food storage is not where you store it but the condition of the food. It is important that your pet’s food is always kept in a place that is away from excessive moisture and unable to be tampered with by other animals.
