Stalls, litter boxes and the like aren’t the only things that should be cleaned out - did you know it’s super important to thoroughly scrub buckets, bowls, and troughs, too??
- Buckets, bowls and troughs should be rinsed out daily to avoid stagnant water which could lead to bacteria build up and a breeding ground for insects.
- Ideally weekly, especially in warmer months, they should be scrubbed out using a stiff brush to remove any debris or build up that might cause your animals to not drink.
- You can use Apple Cider Vinegar, Thieves or a mild soap to assist with your “deep clean” — always remember to rinse well.
- Fresh, clean water is one of, if not THE, most important thing for an animal’s health.
- Always ask yourself, “Would I drink that?” If the answer is No, it’s time to clean!
