Disinfection/sanitisation is vital part of veterinary practice, whether it is on the farm or in the veterinary surgery. It is time-consuming to achieve good results and it should be
remembered that though a surface may look clean, unless the procedures are done thoroughly and correctly, such surfaces may still harbour pathogens. Keeping your kennels clean is crucial. Atom Vet provide wide range of products.

Disinfection may be achieved by physical and chemical means,
though the former is more limited in veterinary practice. Boiling
or the use of pressurised steam in the autoclave may be used in
the veterinary surgery, though it should be remembered that
boiling will not kill bacterial spores. Ultra-violet light may be used
in some areas, but it does not penetrate glass and prolonged
exposure may result in damage to the eye and skin.
It is important that veterinary surgeons are familiar with the general principles of sanitisation and disinfectionand their implementation. Sanitisation is the establishment of conditions favourable to health,especially with respect to infectiousdiseases. It includes the disposal of infective materials – e.g. carcases,excreta, etc.; general cleaning to make the application of disinfectants effective; isolation of infected animals and improvement of hygiene and ventilation.
