What does mould in a dog food look like?

Mould in dog food can have various appearances, but it can be seen by our naked eye and generally appears as fuzzy, powdery, or discoloured patches on the surface of the food.

Is mould toxic to dogs?

Mould in dog food is toxic because it can make your dog sick. When dogs eat mouldy food, it can lead to stomach problems, allergies, and even more serious health issues. So, it's essential to keep their food mould-free to keep them healthy and happy.
