Hello! We have always used a spray bottle. Are you using a squirt bottle to cut down on aerosolized disinfectant or contaminates?

Hi Sarai,

Great question! I checked in with our Safety Manager and you are right - we use a squirt bottle to minimize aerosolization of the chemicals to decrease human exposure. We use these same bottles for cleaning kennels, regular exam rooms, and other surfaces too.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Patty,

Thanks for your question.

The product we are using is called Vindicator. It's the same product we use for cleaning kennels, but for an isolation exam room we leave it for a longer contact time, and do a second round.

Let me know if you have any further questions!
