Keep your chews in a dry place or away from immediate moisture contact and your chews will be nice and tasty when you are ready to reward your pet.
After your pet has enjoyed the chew for a while, you could remove the chew and let it stand to become dry again, so that it is firm for the next time your pet is ready to enjoy the chew.
When the chew has been enjoyed down to a small portion, you may want to remove the remains if your pet tends to try to swallow or eat pieces that are just a little too big for the pet.
Beefhide munchy items are pulverized beefhide mixed with a binder and extruded to form various shapes. Your pet will chew and eat most of the munchy, which is normal. Again, simply keep the munchy items in a dry place. Sometimes, over time, a slight haze might form on the munchy which in many cases is the “flowering” of the pulverized materials. If the haze becomes moldy, then the product has taken on moisture and should not be used.
Beefhide bones have low moisture content and therefore should not attract bugs while in storage. Basted products, however, can and many times do, attract bugs as the flavoring is a food product. We recommend that your extra basted chews be stored in an airtight bag or jar in order to prevent attracting bugs.
