    I got a puppy and I add water to his food, how long can I keep it before tossing? Could I refrigerate the leftovers?

    Of course, cover and refrigerate all opened dog food in tightly covered containers. In fact, I refrigerate or freeze dry food in containers too, if I have the room.
    Wet food or dry food soaked in water is good for about 3 days (in my experience).
    Just sniff it, you will know if it’s going bad. Dry food without anything added in a tightly covered contained is good for at least 2 weeks, unopened bags are good a lot longer, but check the expiration/best by/use by dates on the package.

    I have a suggestion that was given to me years ago when my Tibetan terrier was a pup and teething.
    It was suggested that I put leftover food in his Kong and freeze it.

    Whenever he was wanting to chew something, the frozen food served as a treat and helped the teething process.
