When it comes to feeding the family dog, it’s key to make sure the food you purchase is stored properly at home. Unfortunately, it’s very easy for dog food to go rancid, develop mold and bacteria, and even worse, to become infested with insects and rodent waste. First, never store any type of dog food -- canned or bagged -- in the garage, where it can get too hot. Instead, store the food in a cool, dry place. And keep it in the original bag; the bags are designed to keep dog food as fresh as possible.
