We recommend the container be covered so that chometz will not come into contact with anything you eat.

2. Does pet food have to be kosher?

There is no requirement to feed one's pet kosher food. However, one may not give food containing a mixture of meat and milk to animals at any time during the year. On Passover, the pet food may not contain any chometz. This is because Jews are forbidden to derive any benefit from chometz, and feeding it to animals would be a benefit for us.
