---A word about that pink slime that appears on the inside of a cat or dog’s water bowl. It’s called Biofilm.
Biofilm Comes from Bacteria
Your pet’s mouth and tongue contain bacteria that bind together and stick to the surface of a bowl. Bacteria contains both good and bad properties. Unfortunately, the bad types can make your pet sick. In a recent study conducted by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), the agency reported that pet bowls come in fourth on the list for places in the home that contain the most germs.
One reason for the germ build-up is that owners don’t clean food and water bowls after each use. This is especially common in households where pets receive only dry kibble. They refill the food and water bowl each day and wash it on occasion. No one is trying to make their pet sick on purpose. It’s just that they’re unaware of the health risk caused by biofilm.
When pets eat and drink out of unclean bowls, the bacteria present in their bowl continues to build and eventually contaminates their fresh food and water. Anyone who touches the unclean bowls is also at risk of acquiring harmful bacteria if they don’t wash their hands after doing so.
If you don’t have a dishwasher, combine bleach and water at a 1:50 ratio and allow the dish to soak for 10 minutes. Don’t forget to rinse the dishes thoroughly when you take them out of the bleach water. Another alternative is to combine baking soda, salt, and warm water in equal amounts to create a thick paste. Scrub the bowls with the paste and then rinse them clean.
