    This may belong in another post, but it’s my first so bear with me.

    We purchased Blue Wilderness in a 20lb bag and stored it in a can as usual. As we got down to the bottom the food started smelling really bad. A very strong fishy smell. Mollie stopped eating it so what could’ve made it start smelling? Should we not store dry food in a can? Thanks!

    You should store the food in its own bag with the top rolled down in a cool dry location. Fats can go bad from exposure to air, heat, some metals, etc. If you keep it in its original bag then you have info for possible recalls and the experation date on the bag. If you get a large bag, but have a small dog, you might want to store excess in the fridge/freezer.

    I know what you mean. I have several different kinds of pets, so I have stacks of pet food bags. It gets ridiculous.

    Also the can should be washed out with every new bag poured in. The fats stick to the sides of the can as well and go bad, but you’ll probably be storing the food in the original dog food bag from now on!!
