− Apply using a Hillyard sprayer with a blue tip or 6 oz per gallon dilution (16:1)

4) Scrub thoroughly.

5) Rinse and let area dry (Ideally).

6) Apply Tektrol® OR Rescue® to walls and floor spraying from top to bottom. Consult your
veterinarian to determine which disinfectant is most effective for your environment.
− Tektrol ® is a phenol disinfectant.
− Apply Tektrol® using a Hillyard Sprayer with a pink tip or 1/2oz per gallon dilution (256:1)
-- Rescue® is a hydrogen peroxide based disinfectant.
