Within the past few years, we have been using household cleaning products more than ever. What if we told you that by trying to keep yourself safe from bacteria, you're actually putting your pets at risk of major health issues?!
Ingredients such as bleach, ammonia, chlorine, glycol ethers - found in common household cleaners can be extremely toxic for pets, children, and even adults. Cancer, anemia, liver and kidney damage are all health risks pets face when exposed to toxic chemicals. Even when toxic cleaners are closed and stored away in a cabinet, the vapors left behind can harm us, our children, and our furry friends.
Common Household Chemicals and Related Health Issues:
Ammonia: skin irritation, burns, respiratory and neurological issues
Glycol Ethers(carpet cleaners): kidney and lung damage and even leukemia
WHY NON-TOXIC CLEANING PRODUCTS ARE IMPORTANT:
Non-toxic cleaners are just that - NON-TOXIC. Products such as Petique's Odor Eliminator Collection With Photocatalyst Technology use green chemistry - which means there are absolutely no harmful ingredients. Photocatalyst Technology works with the air molecules in our eco-system to instantly dissolve and break down bad odor molecules and turns them into H2O and CO2.
Most cleaning products on the market use fragrances to mask odors so that consumers feel like they're REALLY cleaning. What if I told you the molecules that cause odors and stains are still there, even after using these toxic products?!
All pets are at risk of ingesting harmful chemicals, but cats are particularly vulnerable since they constantly self-grooming after being exposed to toxins and because their bodies do not handle toxins well due to the lack of certain liver enzymes.
TIPS FOR CLEANING PRODUCT SAFETY:
Try to use Non-Toxic cleaning products instead - make sure they are free of sulfates, alcohols, harsh irritating chemicals and detergents
Read labels carefully and follow use instructions properly
Be aware of the chemical strength, if you HAVE to use products such as bleach or alcohol be sure to dilute it
When cleaning with chemicals, place children and pets in a different room and ensure there is PLENTY of ventilation

A few years ago I purchased – from another company – a very expensive all-organic rectangular dog bed. For the first couple years, my dogs totally ignored it. Since that time they’ve occasionally used it but, mostly, they’ve enjoyed digging on it. Eventually they dug right through the cover.
When I called the company from which I’d purchased it, I was informed that they don’t have replacement covers, but that I could wrap a blanket around it….
When I happened across this Petique hemp cover, I realized the small had the same dimensions as the bed, so I took a chance and ordered it. It fits PERFECTLY; naturally, no one has used the bed yet…
cute and fun. My dog loves looking for the treats. its made with great quality. My dog likes to play rough with his toys and this has held up really well. The design is also really cute, have not seen many like this out there.
I got this for my rabbit because he LOVES " houses, hidey places". He has spilled over into 2 rooms with all his fun gear and toys. I have learned that cat "things" usually make for excellent bunny fun and the joy he expresses is so rewarding
