I know many of us are guilty of just simply refilling the water bowl without washing it first but it is very important to wash your pets water bowl every day. I’m sure lots of people have noticed that slimy residue that forms in the bowl and might wonder what it is. This slimy residue is a host to numerous dangerous bacteria that can make out pets very ill and start to grow fungus is left unwashed.
None of us would want to drink from a dirty glass so why should our pets. Ideally you should use a ceramic or stainless steal bowl as plastic bowls can be dangerous as they can have BPA in or get scratches where bacteria can hide.
