ALPO Frequently Asked Questions
We maintain a strict code of standards for buying, storing and processing ingredients used in our pet foods. These standards are among the strictest in the pet food industry so you can feed our food with confidence. Visit here for more information.
Feeding your pet is one of the most important ways you can care for him. Once you have chosen the right food for your pet, you can develop a plan for portioning and scheduling. Click here for more information on portion planning and check your product package for specific feeding amounts.
Select a dog food that is 100% complete and balanced for your pet’s life stage. All of our dog foods come with feeding instructions to help you properly feed your pet depending on his size. ALPO is complete and balanced for each life stage and will contribute to your pet’s overall health, along with regular exercise and attention to any of your pet’s special needs. Please visit our ALPO dog food products page to review and select one of our dog food products.
You should consider gradually transitioning to new pet foods to help avoid dietary upset. We recommend consumers introduce a new pet food over a period of 7-10 days to help avoid dietary upset. Each day, increase the amount of the new food while decreasing the amount of the current food.
We don’t recommend leaving wet food out for more than two hours after opening. Any remaining food should be refrigerated in a covered container and should be kept for no longer than three days.
We do not recommend microwaving pet food that has been refrigerated. The food may heat unevenly, creating hot spots that could injure your dog’s mouth. In lieu of microwaving, we recommend allowing about 1 hour for the product to reach room temperature before serving.
Dog food makes up the entirety of a dog’s diet, so it needs to deliver all of the nutrients in appropriate amounts your dog needs at each life stage. That’s why dog foods so often use the phrase “complete and balanced.” For more information on nutrition, please click here.
