Reducing Infectious Agents in Cat Feces.

Saturday, March 26, 2016

catselfcleaninCat feces contain several infectious agents such as the Toxoplasma gondii parasite which can cause toxoplasmosis. People with strong immune symptoms may never experience any of the symptoms associated with toxoplasmosis. However, women that are pregnant, children and those who suffer from immunodeficiencies (such as HIV infection)are at an increased risk for this disease. For those who are at high risk, symptoms can be severe and may include brain, eye or organ damage. E. coli infection is another risk associated with cat feces. While most strains of E. coli are harmless, some can cause serious illness, especially in children under five.

With all of this said, a self cleaning litter box can reduce the risk of parasitic infection associated with cat feces. They also make cleaning litter boxes and waste disposal easier and more convenient than ever before.  They work very well with all types of litter including litter made with natural ingredients such as wheat and corn and also work well with clumping litter. Self cleaning litter boxes can really help to reduce infectious waste because they are cleaning consistently. The little genie waste disposal system is a great way to keep everything sanitary and smelling great!

Doggy Ear Care

DOGEAREar care is usually one of the easiest dog grooming tasks that you may do but it is a very necessary task. Unless your dog hunts, swims or has ear problems, ear cleaning needs to be done every few weeks. It’s a good idea to do it when you give your dog a bath.

Clean the outermost area of your dogs ears with a Q tip or a cotton swab that is dampened with water. You can even use a small amount of baby oil. To clean further inside the ear, you should use an ear cleaning solution. Ask your vet which is the best one to use. To do this, put the solution bottle between our palms to warm it first. Then squirt the prescribed amount into your dogs ear canal. Gently message the base of the ear. Remove any dirt or wax with a dry cotton ball or swab. Of course offer him a dog treat after the cleaning is finished.

If you keep your dogs ears clean, you will prevent infections and problems down the road. You will also save on vet and pet medication bills.
