Hello,

That sounds fine, no problem. Yes, it does need to be kept in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
Do you give it straight or, do you mix it with other liquid or a slurry?
If you mix it with a slurry, you could mix it with the food you were going to give then put the
bottle back in the fridge.
Leaving it out for short periods shouldn't affect it.

Hello,

Sorry! Yes giving it straight is fine so letting it warm up for a few minutes as you are doing is
perfectly fine. It will be easier on the system that way. :D
