Pet Safe Home 4

It’s very important that your pet is living in an environment that is free from health hazards. Gresham Animal Hospital would like to help you take the proper measures needed to make sure your pet is happy and healthy in your home. Read our fourth tip for a happy and healthy pet below: 

Proper Food Storage
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration advises storing pet food and treats in the original container or bag. If you want to store dry food in a storage container, put the entire bag into the container, rather than pouring the food into it. Use only clean, dry, food-grade containers with lids. Store dry food in a cool, dry location with a temperature cooler than 80 degrees. Wet food should be stored at or below 40 degrees in the refrigerator. Wash and dry food and water bowls and scooping utensils daily.
