Disinfection of cages and kennels

- May 05, 2019-

Animal cages can be selected from stainless steel wire, plastic and other materials with smooth surface and easy to clean. Pay attention to cleaning and disinfecting regularly, at least once a week. The usual practice is to soak or infiltrate the cage in the disinfectant solution for at least half an hour, then brush it with detergent, decontamination powder, etc., and then rinse it with water and let it dry. The disinfectant can be selected from 3% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% chlorine dioxide solution, which has a strong killing effect on viruses, spores, and bacterial propagules. In addition, 1% to 2% bleaching supernatant can be used. Since the disinfectant may have an adverse effect on the pet, the disinfectant should be thoroughly rinsed after disinfection.

Larger viewing dogs and security dogs should build kennels outside. Choose a well-ventilated, well-lit area. The kennel has a smooth floor and can be made of artificial leather for easy cleaning.

Cats and kennels must be cleaned internally and externally to clean up feces, dirt and garbage in a timely manner, and often disinfected. Spray or spray disinfectant is usually used. The disinfectant can use 3% hydrogen peroxide, 0.1% chlorine dioxide solution, and 10%--20% bleach powder emulsion.
