The efficiency of peracetic acid on drinking-water conservation and sterilization was investigated. It was determined in watering experiments that a starting concentration of 0.01-0.02% peracetic acid was required in order to guarantee the sterility of water and water-bottle for a duration of one week. As the applied peracetic acid concentration could be reduced by addition of organic substances such as saliva and stomach content, the possibility of peracetic acid resorption by the animal is negligible.
