What Is Biofilm?
Rainy day, walk anyway!
The three of us have created a little routine where we walk the property line every day. Jake and Maggie love watching the robins, smelling the fresh air, and checking out the bugs in the grass. Come rain or shine, we are out there! Good thing I bought extra wipes for wiping off those muddy paws!

Listeria, E. coli, and Legionella are all organisms that call Biofilm home. Bad biofilms have been linked to urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder infections, middle-ear infections, and more. It is extremely important to keep your pet’s food bowls and food containers clean and dry. In order for you to remove the Biofilm, you need to wipe your pet’s dish out every time you refill it. This slimy substance needs to be broken down in order for it to be removed. In order to keep Biofilm from forming, place your pet’s dish in the dishwasher and run on high heat using Vinegar. Please do not use any harsh cleaners which can harm your pet should any residue be left on the dish. Should you need to clean the area around the dish and do not have vinegar to spare, you can use Hydrogen Peroxide to wipe the affected area down.
Other natural ingredients that can help break down Biofilm are: Garlic has been found to be effective against fungal Biofilms, Oregano, Cinnamon, Curcumin, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), Cranberry can be used to treat UTI-associated biofilms, Ginger
