Here are some simple tips to keep your Dog's water bowl clean and healthy:
Use a clean spray bottle filled with half white vinegar and water. Label it and keep handy for daily use.
Empty old water from bowl, spray with vinegar solution, let sit for 2 minutes, wipe with paper towel.
Rinse bowl several times, refill with fresh water. Repeat daily.
Add a half scoop of EnviroMin Dog to fresh water for added protection against bacteria growth, healthy teeth and gums, and a little extra help with fresher breath.
Always use glass, stainless steel, or ceramic water bowls. Plastics leech chemicals especially during hot or cold weather. Use bowls with flat bottoms to avoid spillage. Add extra bowls during hot weather in a shaded area.
Don't use a garden hose to fill your dogs water bowl. Hoses harbor bacteria and can leech petroleum based chemicals into the water. Don't use dish soap for cleaning water bowls, use vinegar method. If possible, bowls may be put into the dish washer weekly, however, a thorough rinsing is important to remove chlorine residue.
Clean water and a clean bowl daily helps ward off serious, and possibly contagious, bacterial infections such as Giardia that cause diarrhea, vomiting, or other illness.
