Hi all. I would like your thoughts on buying dog food in bulk . right now I buy it every month but would like to buy food in bulk so I’m not buying every month. Would it spoil or is there a way to keep it fresh if I buy in bulk ?

– buy airtight containers
– seal it in ziplock bags and freeze it
Totally doable, but I would test with a small amount first to ensure your dog still likes it even after it’s been frozen. Freeze for larger amount, airtight containers would only be good for a 40lb bag of food.

DiamondnLovey: dry food, no it will not spoil. I buy a big bag (25lbs) and I put it in a big plastic container to keep it fresh.
Canned food (wet food) – I buy a case of it and it lasts me a little over a month. As long as its not opened its fine. Daisy goes through 1 can every 3-4 days, once I open it, I store it in the fridge.
Her dry food and wetfood gets mixed. I buy food every 2 months for her.

I personally just buy mine a month at a time. I worry that, even under the best of conditions, it would mold. I have never thought of freezing it, but my freezer is too small to fit much of anything in there.

DiamondnLovey: We buy Costco brand dog food, 2 at a time, at pour them into a plastic/sealed bin. It lasts us about 3 months, and she eats every last kibble! I would say it works just fine.

DiamondnLovey: It might depend. I buy mine with no preservatives so I wouldn’t personally want that lying around too long. My dogs go through a 25lb bag a month. I do keep it in ant proof plastic containers, though.
