Since our products are free of preservatives and other chemicals used to maintain shelf life, we recommend you keep your bag or jar sealed and stored in a cool dry place. You may store and serve directly from the freezer for the longest shelf life of up to 3 months! However, if you want to serve them room temp, try to consume within a month of purchase. Please discard product is there are visible signs of mold or if you notice the development of any pungent smells. If that happens or your dog and/or cat simply just isn’t a fan, please email me for either a refund or replacement bag/bags. We truly do strive for upmost satisfaction from you and from your furbabies.
