Keep your animals healthy by using Anti-Germicidal Blue Lights. This light is a Multi-Functional Area light and Blue Light for killing bacteria in your kennel. Studies have show that Blue Light in a specific nanometer kills a wide variety of bacteria and viruses including, MRSA, Bordetella and more.
Dogs also can get very sick….despite their seemingly boundless energy and healthy appearance. Just like kids they seem to be ok but they have runny noses but really don’t feel good. It’s very common for them to contract bacterial infections via different areas of the body, including skin, ears, urinary tract, kidneys and more. No one likes to see their pet in pain, which is why knowing the most common dog bacterial infections and their symptoms is important. The faster you’re able to detect abnormalities, the sooner a vet can give a diagnosis and treatment options. In the mean time by having a Bacteria Anti-Germicidal light in their area deactivating surface and air bacteria will help keep your pet healthy.
Common Bacterial Infections in Dogs
Skin Infection – Skin infections are more easily detected than other bacterial infections due to the external signs that are present. Itchiness, crusted or scabbed skin, and pustules are symptoms of a bacterial infection of the skin. If the infection goes unnoticed and becomes increasingly severe, your dog could start losing hair or begin developing a dried discharge. The Blue Light is perfect to help keep these at bay. Should they get it and bring it into their area the blue light will help sanitize the area and keep it clean. Our smaller hand held blue and red lights are used for spreading the anti-germicidal lights in specific areas.
Leptospirosis – This type of bacterial infection is common because it is highly contagious. A Leptospirosis bacterial infection occurs when a dog drinks stagnant water contaminated by urine or fecal matter. If your dog is suffering from infection, he may develop a fever, but more immediately noticeable, he’ll vomit. There may also be flu-like symptoms of aches and pain and lethargy, as well as kidney inflammation that are involved. If not monitored closely when drinking from outside water sources, it’s all too easy for your dog to contract this disease.
Kennel cough – Kennel cough is a familiar bacterial disease that affects the respiratory system. It gets its name from how it’s typically spread – throughout groups of dogs kept in kennels or animal shelters. As dogs age, they may become more immune to getting this infection, but it is easily spread through sneezing or coughing. We did a test at a large kennel where they bring in lots of dogs from all over and train them to work with veterans. Many of them come in with Kennel cough and spread it around. We retrofitted their white tubes with our blue and white tubes with anti-germicidal lights. The kennel was able to get their dogs out of quarantine 93% faster using the anti-bacterial blue lights.
What is Bacterial Infection (Streptococcus)?
There are good and bad bacteria in all of us, including our dogs. Once in awhile, a bacterium causes an infection and makes your dog ill. This usually happens because your dog’s immune system is low for some reason, such as a recent illness or with very young or old dogs. The Streptococcus canis bacteria is one that can cause an infection and illness in your dog. Since it is already present in your dog’s body, it does not take much for the bacteria to cause an infection if your dog has recently been sick. This is also common in puppies that are not immune yet and older dogs whose immune system is weak. When a dog’s immune system is weakened for any reason, it is easy for the Streptococcus canis bacteria to invade areas where they do not belong and cause a bacterial infection.
Bacterial infections (Streptococcus) is a common infection caused by a naturally forming and necessary bacterium. This bacterium are usually found in the dog’s respiratory system, intestines, urinary, and genital tract, but sometimes cause isolated infections in a dog anywhere in their body.
List of Bacteria Killed By Blue Anti-Germicidal Light
The list below showcases just the species that this technology has already been proven to kill—there are even more to be tested. These include gram negative and gram positive bacteria, bacterial endospores, yeast, mold and fungi:
Staphylococcus aureus (incl. MRSA)
Clostridium difficile (commonly called C. diff, a bacterial endospore)
Bacillus cereus (a bacterial endospore)
Yeast and Filamentous Fungi
Animals are like people they get sick to from a lot of the same type of bacteria that make humans sick. Blue and Red Light are great ways to keep both you and your pets healthy. Every time you enter the dogs area and they have been outside there is bacteria there that could also affect you. Stay Healthy Turn On The Blue.
