Trying to take waste out of the waste stream is admirable, but I wouldn't use anything edible as fertilizer if it's still edible.
However, I wonder if expired dog food could be used to feed worms in a vermiculture operation? Some shredded paper, daily additions of coffee grounds and crushed dog food, some water to keep it moist, perhaps assorted kitchen scraps for variety, and voila, high-quality soil amendment without the ravenous critter dinner bell.
