Shelf life / Best Before Date of The Honest Kitchen Pet Food

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

One of the buying factor which pet owners choose a particular pet food is the shelf life aka expiry date. Most pet owners would prefer to purchase pet food with a longer shelf life or with a later expiry date, so that they can store the food for a longer period of time. However, longer shelf life also equates to more preservatives being added.

In The Honest Kitchen, we preserve the food by gently dehydrating the ingredients in order to create a healthier type of pet food with more nutritional values. Our foods have a shelf life of 12 to 24 months from the date of manufacturing, depending on the product.

The date of manufacture is printed on the top of every 10lbs box in a specially designed ‘tear out and keep’ card, while the Best Before date is printed on the bottom on the 2lbs bottle.

2lbs bottle

Note: The manufacture date printed on our 10lbs boxes are in USA format (MM/DD/YY).

Over in Singapore, it takes about 2-3 months for the freshest batch of dehydrated food to reach us, which explains the short expiry date by the time it is being bought. But! Not to worry as our dehydrated foods are naturally shelf stable and upon storing them in a cool, dry place, the nutritional values will still remain.

  3. Nuts (Pistachio/ macadamia nuts)
    Thou not as toxic as chocolates and alcohol, a mere handful of Macadamia nuts can lead to vomiting, muscle and joint pain, lethargy or even temporary paralysis in your pets. Pistachios are generally non-toxic but it is high in fats. Avoid giving dogs Pistachio that are still in the shell as it can cause digestive blockages which can be dangerous.

  4. Alcohol
    Alcohol are toxic for pets due to their smaller built as compared to humans and inability to process the intoxicating properties. What might seem to be a “safe” amount to you might be fatal to your pet when consumed. Each alcohol beverage contains different concentration of alcohol, ranging from 4% (Beer) to up 90% (hard liquor), a small amount of hard liquor may potentially kill your pet. Signs of alcohol poisoning are: Digestive upset such as vomiting or diarrhea, difficulty in walking or standing, drowsiness, unable to coordinate themselves or slow breathing rate.

Also, refrain from feeding any food to your friends or relatives’ pets during visiting, especially if you are unsure of their diet and allergies as some pets might have special diets to follow with.

Share this with your loved ones and have a Happy New Year!
