How to Properly Store Your WPO Pet Supplements

As pet owners, we want to ensure our furry friends stay healthy and happy. One way we do this is by giving them supplements to help support their overall health and well-being. However, storing these supplements properly is critical to ensure their effectiveness and prevent spoilage.

This blog post will discuss how to properly store your pet supplements to ensure their potency and longevity. We'll also touch on the importance of using high-quality supplements and how to choose the right ones for your pet'spet's specific needs.

Why Quality Matters

Before we dive into proper storage techniques, you should understand why the quality of pet supplements matters. Not all supplements are created equal; some may contain harmful ingredients or contaminants.
To ensure you're giving your pet a high-quality supplement, look for products that are NASC Certified and have been third-party tested for purity and potency. Additionally, as you would at the grocery store with your own food, check the ingredients panel. Look for supplements that do not rely on fillers, synthetics, and GMOs. This practice dilutes the product and lessens the effectiveness of the product. It is meant to increase margins for the manufacturer at the expense of quality; We certainly do not believe in this! It's also a good idea to check with your veterinarian before starting your pet on any new supplements to ensure they're safe and appropriate for your pet's unique needs.

Proper Storage Techniques

Now that we've covered the importance of high-quality supplements let's discuss proper storage techniques. How you store your pet's supplements can significantly impact their effectiveness and longevity. Here are some things to consider when storing your pets supplements:

1. Keep them cool and dry

Most pet supplements should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Exposing supplements to heat and moisture can cause them to break down and lose their potency.

2. Avoid extreme temperatures

In addition to keeping supplements cool, avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures is important. This means avoiding storing them in areas that are too hot such as near a radiator.

3. Keep them out of reach

While it may seem obvious, it's important to keep your pet supplements out of reach of your pets. Not only can they accidentally ingest too much, but they may also be tempted to chew on the bottle or package, causing them to spill.

4. Use airtight containers

Many supplements come in bottles or containers designed to keep out moisture and air, so keep them in their original packaging to ensure safe long-term storage.

5. Follow expiration dates

Pet supplements, like all products, have an expiration date. It's important to check the expiration date on your supplements and discard any expired ones. Using expired supplements can be ineffective or even harmful to your pet.
At Wholistic Pet Organics, we use Best By dates. Please contact us if you don't know whether a product is safe to use. We are happy to help!
