Don't our pets truly make a place feel like a home? However, they can make our homes smell and look dirty, necessitating additional cleaning.
Their muddy paws and minor "accidents" may tempt you to reach for some harsh chemicals to remove any stains or odours. The problem is that the harsh chemicals in cleaning products can be extremely damaging to your pets and other members of your household.
Household chemicals were the sixth most cause of acute toxicosis in pets in 2017, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Dr. Patrick Carney, DVM, of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, says: “If there’s a good chance a pet will ingest a cleaner or be exposed to excessive fumes, don’t use it. You should take the same precautions to protect your pets from chemicals that you would for your children.”
We have always been proponents of natural cleaning products ourselves. While we may only come into contact with our floors and counter-tops for a few seconds, our pets will be lying directly on top of them, possibly licking them! This means your pets' paws will be in regular touch with chemical cleansers if you use them on your floors or surfaces. Their feet pads are sensitive and will absorb the chemicals. Those chemicals might be all over their bodies when they're sleeping or playing, irritating their skin, creating itches and blisters, or being absorbed deeper and making them unwell. It's unpleasant to consider, but it's necessary.
That's why we're so pleased to tell you about an exciting new range of natural cleaning solutions that we recently had the chance to roll out. Read on to find out more about our one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly cleansers for pets.
Good For The Planet And Your Pet
Natural cleaning treatments like salt and water are not only better for your pets, but they're also better for the environment. You can significantly limit the amount of toxins and toxic odours you release into the atmosphere. So, not only will your pets be happier and healthier as a result of your new cleaning habits, but you'll also be helping the environment.
How Does It Work?
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) is the active ingredient in all our products, which is formed when a mixture of salt and water is given an electric charge. Hypochlorous acid is capable of killing 99.995% of germs and bacteria, including E. coli, salmonella, and MRSA. That makes it more than 100 times more effective than bleach, believe it or not!
Hypochlorous Acid, unlike bleach, kills bacteria mechanically, by breaking down their cellular walls, rather than chemically, by harming the cells. Our pet care products also have the added benefit of preventing bacteria from evolving into resistant strains over time!
Chronic skin problems and injuries that don't seem to heal are a regular concern that confront pet owners all the time. What's more hair loss, flaky skin, fungal infections (a common problem among cat owners!), bites, scratches, and wounds are all examples.
Your veterinarian most likely prescribed strong treatments and ointments for your pets, but you should be aware that you must also actively disinfect their wounds! Furthermore, several of these medications may be dangerous to cats and dogs if consumed.
Despite this, due to our furry friend's messy and lively activities, wounds or fungal infections might return over time. That's why keeping our Pet Wound Care on hand is the perfect solution!
Hypochlorous acid disinfectants have been proven in the lab to help treat wounds on humans and animals. It's also a much better alternative to iodine for wound irrigation, because it destroys dangerous germs that sabotage wound healing!
It's also hypoallergenic, non-toxic and free of harsh chemicals that could aggravate your pet's already sensitive skin, such as steroids, phenols, synthetic perfumes, chemical solvents, essential oils, and dyes. That means it's okay to lick, so don't be concerned if your pet grooms themselves.
Also HOCI is gentle enough to use in ears. Most proposed remedies and medicines for animals’ ear care are overly acidic, causing irritation and stinging of the ears. HOCI is the ideal solution for safe ear care, whether you're removing a build-up of ear wax or managing symptoms of an ear infection.
Allowing Your Pet's Body To Concentrate On Healing
This is how wound healing works: amino acids join to form peptide structures, which bind together and finally generate the protein cells require to mend themselves. During the wound healing process, another mechanism called proteolysis occurs.
Proteolysis—the process in which protein enzymes work hard to break down damaging biofilms in order to create and make room for new cells to form, this is crucial to the wound healing process at the cellular level. This procedure is frequently supported by the body's immune system, which ensures that hazardous bacteria do not infect the damaged area, worsening your pet's health.
Keeping a wounded area clean throughout the day can be tricky with any pet. A daily rinse of Wound Care can help to speed up the healing process by removing pathogenic bacteria from the wound.
Care For Your Pet’s Wounds With Ease
Every pet owner will have to provide at-home care for their pets at some point, whether it's due to a scratch, wound, or fungal infection or inherited skin disorders. Keeping our Wound Care at home is a great idea, as it promotes faster wound healing and avoids future infections, ensuring you are always prepared for every eventuality.
Furthermore, you can use our Pet Deodoriser not only to protect your pets, but also to sterilise and deodorise their living areas, food bowls, and bedding. This makes it the perfect solution for doggie daycares and other pet care establishments as it keeps the environment as germ free as possible while doubling as an excellent grooming solution.
