STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Dry pet food, for all its convenience, is difficult to store in a way that preserves its nutritional value and freshness
  • Many unhealthy things can occur in a bag of kibble — especially an open bag — including fat rancidity, bacterial and fungal growth, nutrient depletion and storage mite infestation
  • Most dry pet food also has a number of other problems, including poor-quality, rendered and high-glycemic ingredients and extreme processing that creates cancerous byproducts
  • If you’re still buying kibble, there are several handling and storage guidelines you should follow to help prevent feeding unsafe food to your pet
  • A much better alternative to kibble is a nutritionally balanced, species-appropriate diet containing high-quality animal protein, moisture, healthy fats and fiber, and low to no starch content
