Kennel Kare SC Review by Aaron L. Truax, DVM
We switched to the Kennel Kare SC product by Health Technology just over a year ago and we couldn’t be happier. We are using the Mixing Center, which allows for correctly diluted solution for use in both a mop bucket and general cleaning in our spray bottles. We simply push one button and fill the mop bucket and another to fill our spray bottles. No mixing, no dilution questions, no spilling chemicals and most importantly my staff love the upgrade! I am also excited that with the dilution center we are also not wasting expensive chemical. Like it or not there is always the concept that if I put in a little and it works that a lot will work even better and this results in more cost and wasted chemical!
We also have the foam sprayer attachment for the hose in our kennel area. It allows us to spray the doors, walls, grates, etc and see exactly where we have been by coating them with the foam. This really helps to ensure we have completely disinfected the surfaces. Again, the staff love this sprayer because it is quick, easy and they can tell exactly what has been done. For me, I also like it because I can be confident that the disinfection process is complete.
Overall the Kennel Kare SC system has helped to: cut our chemical costs (both through decreased loss and inappropriate dilution), enhance our confidence in our disinfection process and has gone a long way in the staff taking a much more active role in cleaning, disinfecting and disease management.
