Eickhoff’s Extras: New in the News

Nuggets of Knowledge: New in the News

Staph and antibiotic resistance staph, known as MRSA, have become more common and also gaining the media’s eye.  A study by NSF International found that pet toys were a big culprit of these germs, more so than other household items.  Keep your family healthy by running soft toys through the washing machine on the hot water cycle monthly.  For hard pet toys, rinse the items in hot soapy water, disinfect with a mild bleach solution, and then thoroughly rinse again to remove any residue.
