CARROLLTON, Texas – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – As the world searches for effective ways to safely reopen and prevent the spread of germs, Carrollton West Pet Hospital takes extra steps to ensure that its facility is properly sanitized. It is the first veterinary hospital in the world to deploy Xenex Disinfection services ” Deactivate™, a high powered handheld disinfection device designed to quickly kill germs in compact areas. The Deactivate device is proven to destroy Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19, within 30 seconds.
Carrollton West Pet Hospital is a state-of-the-art wellness and surgical hospital providing compassionate care to improve the lives of its patients. It offers a wide range of services from boarding and preventive care to surgery and intensive medical care, and serves a wide range of pets including dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and hedgehogs. .
“We want to do everything possible to make sure that we provide our employees, customers and their pets with the cleanest possible environment. Using the Deactivate device allows us to quickly destroy viruses and bacteria that we cannot see, but which could potentially transmit to a person or pet. The Deactivate device works quickly, is easy to use and leaves no residue like most chemical disinfectants or sprayers, ”said Ross Barnes, CEO of Carrollton West Pet Hospital.
Deactivate uses high power LEDs to create ultraviolet (UV) light that deactivates pathogens. Deactivate has been shown to destroy SARS-CoV-2 within 30 seconds at 1 meter, and MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) in 1 minute at 1 meter. Deactivation does not require warm-up or cool-down time and leaves no chemical residue. Within minutes, the area is immediately available for use.
Carrollton West Pet Hospital employees use the Deactivate device daily to disinfect exam rooms, reception and waiting areas, offices, washrooms and more.
“Every time a client leaves an exam room, we come in and quickly disinfect it with our Deactivate device before the next client and their pet are admitted to that room. We also skip the waiting room several times a day. Our staff feel reassured to come to work because they know that we are doing everything possible to prevent the spread of germs within our establishment. We are committed to taking care of our employees so that they are able to provide the best possible care for our customers’ pets, ”continued Barnes.
