How often should I clean the bowl for my dog?
You should make sure to clean your pet’s bowl after every meal, as bits of food pieces can develop mold or harbor dangerous bacteria. Use a pet-safe dish detergent to remove any food particles and get your dog’s bowl sparkly clean after dinner time. When it comes to water bowls, you don’t have to clean them on a daily basis- but a thorough clean up once every week is recommended to keep everything sanitary.
How to keep algae out of the dog water bowl?
Algae thrive in the sunlight, so oftentimes, it will grow in dog water bowls that have been exposed to the sun. If algae appears, you have to clean it up right away, because the longer you wait the harder it will be to scrub it all out. Another good trick to prevent algae from forming is to add a tablespoon of apple vinegar cider in your pet’s water- it will keep algae from appearing and it’s safe and beneficial for dogs, so unless they mind the smell, it’s a win win all around!
