Using Safe Cleaning Products Around Your Pets Matters

Using Safe Cleaning Products Around Your Pets Matters - Pathisol

For many of us, our pets are our pride and joy. They act as our bundle of fur, form-of-therapy we can always rely on.  

We commit time to ensuring they get enough exercise, in sourcing the correct food to meet their dietary requirements. But have you considered the danger of toxic household cleaning products that are used around them daily? Not only can this harm your own respiratory system and your skin, but it can do the same to your favourite companions too.

According to PDSA, UK Veterinary Charity: some cleaning products can cause burns on pets' paws or in their throat and stomach if they swallow the product. This can cause permanent damage and can even be fatal, especially if you don't get treatment for them right away. [1]

Safety data sheets

Many of us have a cupboard full of cleaning products stacked up and haven’t thought to check out their safety data sheets. This information identifies the hazards within the products you use. 

This can in some cases disclose (usually in fine small print) the below risks:

  • Corrosive to the skin and eyes
  • Can cause respiratory conditions or effects
  • Generally unsafe to use around people

In an age where our pets feel like family, surrounding them with chemicals that could have an impact on their health should be severely avoided.

Why we are 100% pet friendly
