what would it smell like?I would also agree the smell would be the first give-a-way. I would take it back to the retailer ... just like with human food ... " When in doubt ... throw it out! "
I would seriously take it back and get something else and also check the expiration dates. I always keep my bags after I put it into a container so I have the lot numbers always on hand in case of a recall also.
I would think a soured smell ... bitter smell ... pungent ... sort of an overwhelming hit you in the face smell ... like spoiled food would have ... it is hard to put into words ... sort of like spoiled lunch meat would be a close smell .....what would it smell like?
thats actully a really good idea! im going to start doing that LOL.If your dog normally likes that brand/flavor of food and doesn't want to eat it for some reason, that would make me suspicious.
I have a big plastic tub that holds the entire 30 lb. bag of food, so I just put the whole thing in there, bag and all. That way I still have the bag, plus I don't have to clean the tub between bags. Lazy win!
I got the tub at Bed Bath and Beyond. It also has wheels. Worth the few dollars.thats actully a really good idea! im going to start doing that LOL.
We had dog food go bad, it smelt terrible and it had mold. I know if we have dog food that gets wet/ damp for what ever reason ( water leaked in, etc) we toss it becuase it will mold.
