How expired is TOO expired?

Postby Moemer » Sat Aug 29, 2015 4:22 pm

I have a box of HK Keen and was going to try Arlo on it again (he doesn't like the texture) - but I checked the best before and it says "Best before 10/25/14". Which was a while ago... But, I'm not one to follow the rules, if it smells okay is it still okay to feed? Or am I really pushing it there since there's meat content?

ALSO... Is there any simple way to change the texture of HK foods? Arlo doesn't like sloppy food, but I need to find him something new to eat.

:help:

Could you rehydrate and bake so it's crunchy and crumble it? Dehydrated foods last a good while so unless it smells icky I would use it, especially if you bake it, then I'd think there's much decreased risk of grossness. I think the key is "best by" instead of an actual expiration date. Jmho.
