    DefaultHow long does BilJack last?

    I bought a bag of the frozen stuff for Brodie to try and he wouldn't eat it . It is a week old and I thought Mira might try it but I don't know its shelf life.
    Thanks.

    I never heard of it, sorry. How are you holding up though? How is Mira doing?

    It spoils like fresh meat after it's thawed. I used to use it as a training treat but it's not good to feed. It can cause peritonitis if given in large amounts.

    I am doing fine and I think Mira is. I have kept to our same routines and she seems just as she was. I guess she is lonely during the day but I take plenty of time to play with here when I am here.

    BilJac frozen should last about a week in the frig after its thawed. If its a week old, I would say its old enough to discard. Its high calorie so I don't use it exclusively. I mix it with BilJac dry - now using the Senior formula for two of my dogs. Most dogs like BilJac because it is meat. I like it since its made locally (Ohio) and no problems from imports. I do think BilJac updated the info about how long it should be kept after its thawed to between 5 and 7 days. My puppy loves it and I have only used it with him for some specific training. I think they have a web site although I have never used it. I have never heard of the problem with peritonitis. I had bulldogs before labs and their breeder recommended BilJac.
    I hope you and Mira are doing well and that remembrances of Brodie make you smile even if you also shed a tear at the same time.
