    I purchased a 25 lb. bag of Orijen Adult dry kibble and there is no way we will use in a reasonable amount of time. The bag has not been opened. Is there anyway I can preserve it, i.e., freeze or use a food sealer and put in smaller bags? I know I can donate it but am trying to recoup the cost.
    Also, how much coconut oil would you add for 17-20 lb. dog. And, how much salmon oil to give?
    Lastly, can the salmon oil become rancid?
    Thank you for your advice!

    Smaller bags, empty plastic coffee containers, in the freezer or fridg if you have room.
    Divide the dry dog food up, use a 1 week supply at a time.

    Yes, fish oil can go bad, keep in a cool dry place, but do not freeze. I just use a fish oil capsule per day for each dog, I nip the capsule with scissors and add it to the meal. I take the same stuff myself.

    I don’t go near coconut oil, too fatty (imo). You might find some helpful information here: http://skeptvet.com/Blog/2015/04/coconut-oil-for-pets/

    At least divide the kibble in half and store in a cool, dry place in a tightly closed container. It should be okay.

    Keep the kibble in freezer in a small case or plastic bag so don’t get worse. About salmon oil you need to give only one cap per day to your dog and keep it in a cool place but not in the freezer.
