No. Unless I'm not very observant or it takes longer than 2 weeks for the slime to build up at my place. Two weeks is the longest I've gone without cleaning all the parts.

I don't let my dog drink out of my tank.
Seriously, i looked at our dog's water bowl and I don't feel any slime. Maybe our house is too dry at the time for that to develop. During the summer we run the AC and that also reduces the humidity which might be responsible for the slime build-up.
Based on this discussion, I thoroughly washed my equipment this morning, including the tank.
