Disinfectant Solutions come in many varieties, and commonly used veterinary disinfectant products include: phenols, aldehydes, alcohols, acids, alkalis, chlorine compounds, iodine compounds, heavy metal salts, and surfactants.
1. Phenolic veterinary disinfectant products
These include phenol, composite phenol, coal tar phenol, etc. These veterinary disinfectant products can denature and precipitate the proteins of pathogenic microorganisms, exerting a bactericidal effect against general bacteria. Composite phenols can kill spores, viruses, and fungi.
2. Aldehyde veterinary disinfectant products
The bactericidal effect of aldehyde veterinary disinfectant products is also strong, with formaldehyde being the most effective and commonly used. With advances in production technology and the demands of the farming industry, high-efficiency veterinary disinfectant products such as glutaraldehyde and ortho-phthalaldehyde have also been widely used. Overall, This kind of animal care disinfectant is critical to maintaining a clean and safe environment for animal care, preventing the spread of infection and promoting animal welfare.
3. Acid veterinary disinfectant products
The bactericidal mechanism of acid veterinary disinfectant products is that high concentrations of hydrogen ions can denature and hydrolyze bacterial proteins, while low concentrations of hydrogen ions can change the dissociation degree of bacterial surface proteins, inhibit the permeability of the cell membrane, and affect bacterial absorption, excretion, metabolism, and growth. Hydrogen ions can also compete with other cations for adsorption on the bacterial surface, hindering normal bacterial activity.
4. Alkali veterinary disinfectant products
The alkali disinfectants used in livestock and poultry disinfection mainly include caustic soda, caustic potash, lime, wood ash, soda ash, etc. The mechanism of action of alkali disinfectants is that negative hydroxide ions can hydrolyze proteins and nucleic acids, damage the bacterial enzyme system and cell structure, and alkalis can also inhibit normal bacterial metabolic functions and decompose sugars in bacterial cells, thus reviving the bacteria. They can be used for disinfection of many viral infectious diseases, and high-concentration alkali solutions can also kill spores. Alkali disinfectant solutions are commonly used for disinfecting livestock and poultry farming areas and pens, contaminated equipment (anti-corrosion), various items, excrement, and waste containing pathogens.
5. Alcoholic veterinary disinfectant products
Alcohols are mainly used for disinfection of skin, instruments, injection needles, thermometers, etc., such as 75% alcohol. Surfactants Surfactant disinfectants, also known as cleaning agents or detergents, can reduce the surface tension of bacterial bodies, facilitate the emulsification of oils to remove oil stains, and have a certain cleaning effect. In addition, surfactants can adsorb on the bacterial surface, change the permeability of the bacterial cell membrane, and select enzymes, coenzymes, and intermediate metabolites in the bacterial body, hindering the respiratory and glycolytic processes of bacteria, denaturing bacterial proteins, and exerting a bactericidal effect. Commonly used surfactants include Neodisher, Xibotai, Doomiphin, etc. Alcoholic veterinary disinfectant products are an effective tool for preventing infections in veterinary settings, particularly in rural areas with large farm animals. In sum, alcoholic veterinary disinfectant products, a type of farm animal disinfectant, provide reliable, efficient cleaning solutions for maintaining hygiene and preventing infections in farm animal production and veterinary settings.
6. Oxidizing veterinary disinfectant products
Oxidizing veterinary disinfectant products are compounds containing unstable combined oxygen, which can release primary oxygen upon encountering organic matter or enzymes, and then destroy the active genes of bacteria, exerting a disinfectant effect. Common oxidizing disinfectant solutions include potassium permanganate, peracetic acid, etc.
