These are some of the items that can be found under our sink which serves as an arsenal, a strong message to our enemies that we are not joking.
Our good friend Waru, who is a great fan of natural and holistic practices, thinks that our mission is an overkill. But it is. Most of the animals that come to us harbor all sorts of disease causing organisms, from the innocuous to the extremely virulent. Most of them can thrive in extreme temperatures and may just taunt your trusty old cleanser. Parvo virus for instance, can only be killed by Sodium Hypochlorite, which is a chemical.
As a matter of fact, veterinary hospitals and clinics are places where an animal could easily contract disease. Good thing if the animal has had prior vaccination and a good immune system, but others, especially the young ones who just happen to drop by for a first check up are open targets.
There is just one thing that worries me though-- SUPER PATHOGENS. If pathogens can develop resistance to certain components of drugs used to kill them, the idea that they too may develop resistance to even the most powerful disinfectant is not far fetched. Now this brings me back to Waru's proposition. Dear Secretary, will you research on this please?
