I use vinegar and water. I am allergic to most cleaning chemicals so can't use them. If I was dealing with something contagious I would use bleach, but it requires a full 10 minute contact time to disinfect and has to be dilutes, straight bleach is actual less effective. Organic matter will inactivate it so the area has to be cleaned prior to using bleach if you are using it to disinfect a surface.
Lysol daily cleanser. It has the same ingredients as Vetericyn, hypochlorous acid, is safe and it works great.
For a quick wipe up after he eats, super cheap vodka, in a spray bottle. This is also great as a kitchen cleaner, little tip I learned from my mom.
What am I cleaning? General dirt? Or sick? Soap and water is really good enough. If I need a disinfectant, I usually use vinegar. I think there is enough evidence that we are keeping things to clean and putting to many chemicals back in the environment so I just try to keep it simple.
Now - if they are sick? I'll add bleach to the soap and water and then rinse well.
Our mothers must have been born in the same era, I use cheap vodka as well! The plastic bottles are perfect because you can screw a nozzle straight on to the bottle without having to worry about labeling!
lol j/k. My dog's crate is a wire crate, and I run the vacuum over her crate pad now and then and it helps immensely with deodorizing/de-hairing. That crate pad ain't washable, unfortunately.
She's only gotten sick in her crate once and it was on a different washable crate mat. I rinsed as much as I could outside with the hose and then washed the mat in the washer with bleach. And then ran my washer's self-cleaning cycle because GROSS. (Next time I think I'll go to the laundromat.....)
I need to clean her plastic truck crate, honestly....will probably just use hand wipes or the hose.
I tried to refill my Iverheart Max prescription at KV Supply and they told me that it's no longer being produced, that the company was shut down by the FDA?
I still have 6 months left on the script there, but can't use it. I see Iverheart Max at FS and other places... If it's just...
Alright, everyone talks about the ofa ratings or sv ratings for hips and elbows, teach me what I need to know. I do not necessarily plan on breeding my dog. Not completely opposed to it if she ends up being titled, etc, but not necessarily in favor of it either. I will prob
Actually end up...
I know I could probably do a search and find this subject a thousand times.
But I was wondering what the end result is?
Kira will be 6 months on December 25th.
What is the PREFERRED age to get her spayed? I'm concerned about her health, hormones, etc..
I have no intention of breeding her.
So around a week ago, my girl began to have very bad, explosive diarrhea in her kennel. We bathed her, and then she had another episode that shot all over my bathroom wall. Bathed again, put in her kennel for a few and she vomited a large amount. The vet wrote of a script for some Metronidazole...
Details on this. Vet wants to sedate and remove. Also says that it would
Go away on its own. Are my rugs and such now no good? It is supposedly contagious but does it live on surfaces?
