Cleaning and Disinfection


  • Disinfection agents must specifically address the suspected disease agent.
  • A good preventative choice for routine disinfection are products from the Oxidizing Agents (preferred choice is Prevail, PeroxigardPlus, or Virkon®). These products will deactivate the dangerous non-enveloped viruses such as Parvovirus, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia virus (feline distemper) and are therefore a good choice for daily prevention, as well as during treatment of most disease occurrences.
  • Check individual disease information sheets and protocols for any exceptions (e.g. ringworm) that require an alternate disinfecting agent for the duration of the treatment
