How Often Do You Wash Your Pet’s Bowl?

You wash your dishes after every use, right? Could you imagine eating food off of the same plate multiple times a day for multiple days? Your pet would appreciate a clean bowl just as much as you would! We get the question a lot – “how often should I clean my pet’s dishes?” The answer may surprise you. You should wash your pet’s dishes after every single use, just as you would do for your own dishes. Surprised? During your next exam, let’s chat about all of the things you can do to keep your pet as healthy as possible!

In addition to hand washing, we recommend running them through the dishwasher whenever you get a chance. Typically, dishwashers run in the range of 130-170 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to kill the nasty grime and germs living on your pet’s bowls. We promise your pets will appreciate the extra work you’ve put in to give them a fresh bowl to eat or drink out of.

Most pet parents surveyed feel that rinsing their pet’s bowl under hot water and getting any visible grime off of the bowl is enough, but we can tell you that is just not enough. With that being said, please do use soap to get your pet’s bowls as fresh and clean as possible.

Want to cut back on even more bacteria living in your pet’s bowls? Stick to materials that are not plastic, as they not susceptible to harboring bacteria like plastic does.

Our pets are family, and they deserve the same cleanliness that we require of our dishes on a daily basis. The three minutes of hard washing every day will keep your pet much happier and healthier in the long run.

Great Neck Veterinary Clinic is dedicated to caring for pets. In fact, it’s our passion! First and foremost, we believe every client and patient deserves professional, kind, personalized attention. If you have questions about keeping your pet’s things clean, do not hesitate to contact us! We’re here to help.
