Do you just refill your fur baby’s water or food bowl?  If so, you could make them very sick.

The National Sanitation Foundation International, a public health organization, rated pet food and water bowls as the fourth dirtiest spot in our homes! Bowls that don’t get washed can be teaming with dangerous bacteria and fungus.   Bowls should be cleaned DAILY (preferably with hot water and nontoxic soap and/or run thru a dishwasher). Wash the inside AND outside—some pets regularly lick the sides of their bowls. Care for your fur baby bowls like you do your own dishes—pets are family and depend on us to provide a healthy, clean bowl for every meal.
