Those who own reptiles know the special joys they can bring; however, like other pets, they still need a reasonable bit of care. While they might not require the same grooming as cats or dogs, their cages need to be kept tidy. This is essential for not only protecting the reptile, but also for the people who live in the home. At Rutherford Pet Supply in Spindale Rutherfordton, NC, we are here to help you offer the care for your reptiles that they deserve. 

Among the most important tasks when it pertains to taking care of a reptile is cleaning the cage on a regular basis. With time, feces and microorganisms can build up in the cage. While cleaning the cages might feel like a chore, it is important to ensure this is done to prevent bacteria from building up. Reptiles are known for carrying Salmonella. This is a harmful bacteria that can result in a significant GI infection to those who contract it. Therefore, cleaning the cages often is critical.

How To Look after a Cage- There are a couple of steps that need to be taken when it concerns cleaning a reptile's cage. First, start with the accessories. These can be cleaned by boiling them in water to kill anything that may be residing on them. If there is sand present, these can be washed and then baked in the oven. Try to keep a cleaning kit assembled with all of the equipment needed to care for the cage. Try to avoid mixing this with normal household cleaning materials. In general, cages need to be cleaned every day for spills, shredded skin, feces, and clean food and water dishes. Try to deep cleaning about once a week.
