Veterinary Care and Companion Animals HOCl Fogger by Genesis Fogger

Veterinary Care and Companion Animals

The Genesis Fogger is ideal for quickly and easily disinfecting air and surfaces, using HOCl, in all areas of animal care. Beyond veterinarians and pet owners, equine facilities and boarding kennels also benefit from the natural power of HOCl. Nothing is more effective, and the Genesis Fogger easily reaches every corner of large areas, making it perfect for barns and stables.

There’s nothing more natural or more effective than HOCl.

Because HOCl naturally occurs in the bodies of humans and other mammals, it is also ideal for animal applications. As an antiseptic, it not only rids wounds of harmful microorganisms, but it also significantly reduces inflammation of the surrounding tissue. As a disinfectant, there’s nothing better than HOCl to eradicate germs (bacteria, fungi, and viruses), including all strains and variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). HOCl is environmentally friendly, organic, hypoallergenic , and non toxic.

HOCl is perfect for:

  • Wound hygiene (disinfects, supports debridement, and boosts healing)
  • Helps stop wounds from bleeding
  • Reduces itching and inflammation
  • Eliminates odors
  • Skin infections and conditions, such as rain rot, scratches, and hives
  • Hoof infections, such as abscesses and thrush
  • Infection prevention in cuts, scrapes, puncture wounds

USDA states that HOCl may be applied to dairy processing equipment for disinfection.

Care and Use of the Genesis Fogger

Dilute HOCl solution 2:1 (2 part water to 1 part HOCl). Distilled water is highly recommended to avoid residue and build-up.

Rinse after each use by fogging with distilled water for 10 seconds to flush fogger.

First switch the red (air-flow) dial to the low setting, then slowly turn the blue (solution control) dial for the proper amount of HOCl solution.

Fog at least 8-10 feet from surfaces (you can fog from more than 30 feet away). Proper fogging produces a very fine (20-50 microns, much finer than a human hair) mist and does not overly wet surfaces.

Surfaces should feel dry to the touch almost immediately after being fogged, depending on environmental humidity. There should never be soaking or puddling of solution on surfaces.

Once fogging is complete, shut off the blue dial first to stop the flow of solution. Allow the fogger to run until solution no longer emerges. Then pivot the nozzle upward to avoid dripping.

Shut off the red air-flow dial.

Rinsing at the end of daily use with a small amount of distilled water to remove any residual HOCl from fogger is recommended (fog with distilled water for 15 seconds).

Never overfill tank – always leave 1” of space, visible through side window on top for air to mix with solution properly.

Always store fogger upright, with nozzle also in the upright position.

What is the recommended HOCl dilution for use in veterinarian clinic?

Our HOCl is a hospital-grade disinfectant and a ready-to-use spray for non-porous surfaces. Also, when properly diluted, it’s extremely versatile throughout the animal clinic for disinfection.

The ideal concentration for fogging is no stronger than 200 ppm HOCl (no stronger than 2 parts water – distilled is recommended, to 1 part HOCl).

When fogged, surfaces should not be soaking wet. Only a fine mist is needed, which dries in minutes. If surfaces are wet, this indicates the operator is standing too close and that the volume of solution is dialed too high. In this case, stand further away from surfaces and dial back solution. Also, for proper “dry” fogging, keep the fogger moving to avoid over-wetting surfaces.

Apart from COVID disinfection what else can Genesis combat?

Because HOCl is also lethal to e-coli, norovirus, and 99.9% of viruses and other pathogens, Genesis customers say they will continue fogging post-COVID, as part of their cleaning regimen.
