It is important to keep veterinary clinics clean and disinfected to prevent the spread of dangerous pathogens among animal patients. Knowing the value of cleaning and knowing which animal care disinfectant to use are two very different things. There are many common disinfectants used in the pet care industry, some are for hard surfaces and others are for soft surfaces. Here's what you need to know about disinfecting hard and soft surfaces and what cleaning products to use.
