Research Highlights: Kennel Disinfectants for Microsporum canis and Trichophyton spp
Environmental disinfection is an important component of the prevention and control of dermatophytosis and is of particular importance in facilities housing large numbers of animals such as shelters and boarding kennels. Many factors need to be considered when selecting a kennel disinfectant including, but not limited to, efficacy, lack of toxicity or irritancy to animals and workers, cost, ease of application, and lack of corrosiveness to surfaces. Therefore, a comprehensive analysis was undertaken to determine if Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) would be a suitable alternative to other chemistries with known limitations.
Research Highlights: Efficacy of three disinfectant formulations and a hydrogen peroxide/silver fogging system on surfaces experimentally inoculated with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius
