Unfortunately, whatever food we buy usually has some sort of preservative in it, although we may do our best to try and avoid it whenever possible . When it comes to food, unless it is home-cooked and very fresh, preservatives find their way in. The same goes for preservatives in pet food. All packaged food that you buy for your dog, dried or wet, will have to have some preservative in it otherwise it may decay and then we are looking at a whole other problem. Preservatives may not be something we choose to digest, but food that is not fresh can cause all sorts of illnesses both in people and pets. If we are talking fresh meat and poultry, great care has to be taken when preparing or storing it.

For the moment, let’s look at the sorts of preservatives that you may find in dog food, particularly the dry sort. Some of these are ethoxyquin , butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and they are mainly used to stop the fat turning rancid. Whilst these may be tolerated in small amounts, research suggests that large quantities are not at all good for your dog, so where you can purchase food that is preservative free or has very low levels, opt for this. But what about natural preservatives? Some of these are vitamin E (mixed tocopherols ), vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and plant extracts (e.g., rosemary ). They work in the same way as the artificial preservatives above, but last for a much shorter period. If you buy regularly and stick to the ‘sell by dates’ however, this should not be a major problem.

Slide 5:

However, even this is not without risks. If buying fresh meat or poultry to produce food for your dog at home, do purchase it from a reputable source and do not feed your dog anything that you would not eat yourself! Keep it cool, clean and covered. The fridge will preserve the meat for a short time whilst you are getting ready to prepare. After this, once cooked, cooled and ready to store, transfer the food into robust plastic containers with securely fastened lids that cannot come off in the freezer. If you store the food in meal-sized bites, then all you need do is take the tub out of the freezer a few hours before it is needed and let it defrost slowly in the fridge or more quickly at room temperature until it is thawed and ready to serve.
