    We give each a teaspoon of coconut oil every day to them for that reason and it helps the GI track.

    Would not touch old roy with a stick either.

    Coconut oil is also an anti fungal, so it's good for dogs that have yeast issues.

The other brands of dry dog food began to go rancid within 6-8 months As I'm sure you know a dry dog food has oils in it which go rancid with time.

    What brand of dog food do you use that lasts for over a year?
    I have the same problem with chicken feed going bad after 6-7 months so any suggestions with chicken feed would also be useful.

    I walked down the dog & cat food aisle at WalMart once, and every bag of dry food had a date that was at least 1 year away. Some were 18 months out.
    My ability to recall lyrics from a song written in the 70's far exceeds my ability to recall why I walked into the kitchen.

    I use the purina for mine,

    The difference here is that the bags are subjected to freezing and near freezing conditions for 6 months out of a year.

    There is only 2 days worth of food for them in the home at any time.

    They, the bags, are marked and used in date order and don't run much over 16 months storage if that.

    We've kept a good supply of the 3M 1860 medical masks the last few years and have mailed or delivered some to our older family members the last 2 weeks. At this point we are keeping the remaining masks for our personal use. immediate family only at this point.

    Preppers prep. Instead of fancy vacations we took lessor vacations, ate out less. and used the cash to buy preps like good N-95 masks.

    Everything I've read has not indicated that the Wuhan virus is airborne. As in the virus itself is floating in the air.
    Everything I've read has indicated that the Wuhan virus is aerosol borne. As in the tiny droplets and such that are sneezed and coughed out.
    Everything I've read has indicated that the primary way of transmission of the Wuhan virus is from contaminated hands touching the face (mouth, nose, eyes).

    The homemade masks at the very least keep dirty hands from mouth and nose.

    I literally just got out of bed and looked and the bags of dog food we have here don't have a Use By date on them, and I've never seen a Use By date on any dog food I've ever purchased. I can't even imagine trying to store a year's worth of food for my dogs. They go through about 50 pounds a month and I just don't have the room. I fed the dogs kibble that was at least nine months old. It didn't smell rancid. The dogs ate it and it didn't make them sick.

    Well this tread bounced around! LOL. As to the dog food, back 15 years ago when I had a black Lab, we would buy big plastic boxes of Milk Bones at Sams. Several times we had to throw away 1/2 to 3/4 of a new box because they developed some little critters! Some type of bug looking thing and also something like fruit flies. And these containers closed tightly and seemed to have a gasket. Didn't happen every time though.
