The cat bowl needs to be cleaned once a day, and not only with clean water, but also with a brush and detergent.
In addition to daily cleaning, disinfection should also be carried out once a week. Use 1:50 bleach solution to soak the food basin and water bowl for more than one minute, then wash them thoroughly (if they are not washed, they will be poisoned), dry them and then give them to the cat. This method is also applicable to the food basin and water bowl that have not been cleaned for a long time.
Recommended cleaning time:
Cat bowl with dry food: wash the cat after dinner every day.
Cat bowl with wet food: wash the cat after each meal.
Cat bowl with water: wash it every day.
The only thing to pay attention to is: after washing off the detergent, use tap water several times to avoid residue.
But many excrement shoveling officials use automatic drinking fountains. Do automatic drinking fountains also need to be cleaned every day?
The automatic water dispenser supplies flowing water, which can prevent the formation of biofilm to a certain extent, but there is still bacterial proliferation. For the automatic water dispenser used in actual use, even when the filter element is used, the fishy smell (possibly accumulated amine compounds) will be smelled around the water pump every time it is disassembled and washed, let alone invisible bacteria.
It is recommended that the water be changed at least every 3 days and thoroughly cleaned at the same time.
Wash dishes and eat "baking soda". Sprinkle a little baking soda and salt in the cat bowl every time, and soak it in warm water for about 3 minutes.
A complete pet bowl cleaning is never done with water. Like our usual dishes, pet dishes should also be soaked in detergent, washed manually and rinsed twice with water.
