The littlest member of the Butlers Brand team wants his animal friends to be safe and happy, and so here are Quincy's simple tips for taking care of pets at home.
We puppies can make a mess at meal time. You can save yourself time and effort from future cleanup by placing your pet's food and water bowls on a placemat that can easily be washed. If we splatter our water, it will go onto the mat instead of the floor, where it could potentially do damage - especially if the floor is wooden! Always clean your pet’s bowls daily so that stuck-on leftover food doesn’t become hardened. Doing so will also eliminate odors and deter flies and bugs. Cleaning the mat beneath your pet's bowl, as well as the walls and floor around it, will ensure things stay clean and sanitary for your pet. Be sure to use a nontoxic universal cleaner and to wipe away all residue of the cleaner.
Avoid using harsh chemical dish soaps to clean your pet’s bowls. The soap’s residue (as well as any fragrance) can make him or her sick. Fragrance in any household products - surface cleaners, dryer sheets, air freshener - can be absorbed by your pet through inhalation as well as ingestion. Go easy on the fragrance, your pets are quite sensitive to it!
