Those who own reptiles know the unique pleasures they can bring; however, like other animals, they still require a fair amount of care. While they might not require the same grooming as cats or dogs, their cages need to be kept clean. This is very important for not only protecting the reptile, but also for the people who live in the home. At Paws Inn Pet Essentials in Waconia, MN, we are here to help you give the care for your reptiles that they deserve. 

Among the most important tasks when it involves looking after a reptile is cleaning the cage on a regular basis. With time, fecal matter and microorganisms can build up in the cage. While cleaning the cages might seem like a chore, it is important to ensure this is done to stop bacteria from building up. Reptiles are known for carrying Salmonella. This is an unsafe bacteria that can result in a significant GI infection to those who get 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 comes to cleaning a reptile's cage. First, start with the accessories. These can be cleaned by boiling them in water to eliminate 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 set assembled with all of the equipment required to care for the cage. Try to stay clear of mixing this with normal household cleaning products. In general, cages need to be cleaned on a daily basis for spills, shredded skin, feces, and clean food and water dishes. Try to deep cleaning about once per week.
