How to Clean a Crate to Stop the Spread of the Parvovirus

Parvo Virus Veterinarians throughout the country are reporting a rise in cases of Canine Parvovirus. The virus has mutated into a more virulent strain, making it harder to kill. In the past, veterinarians would recommend the use of a bleach solution to kill the virus in the home, but more and more studies have shown that household bleach doesn’t kill the virus and both businesses and homeowners are afraid to use the solution, as it will damage surfaces and cause upper respiratory problems in both humans and animals. More and more veterinarians across the country are recommending ProVetLogic Spray & Wipe Disinfectant, which is the only animal specific, EPA Registered Ready-To-Use Disinfectant that is effective against Canine Parvovirus.

Did you know that a number of viruses, including Canine Influenza Virus is spread through dog hair and that many groomers are unaware of this fact?
