cleaningCategory: CLEANING/DISINFECTING – Duration: 15 minutes – Prerequisites: None


The intent of this course is to provide methods and techniques to properly clean and disinfect catteries while maintaining excellent pathogen control protocols. Cat facilities vary widely from simple cages to elaborate condominiums.  Play areas differ in size and furniture provided.  We will discuss the cleaning of enclosures and the cleaning of play areas separately.

Proper personnel protective equipment should be worn when dictated by facility safety protocols.  Ensure all animals have been properly removed from their enclosures prior to cleaning/disinfecting their personal area(s).
