A couple of weeks ago we shared with you the Most Common Situations Where Your Fur Baby Needs Help Grooming. Many of our favorite fur baby parents told us they haven’t really had a need for wipes, but needs can change over time so we figured we would share some of the knowledge we learned along the way with our thoughts on How to Pick a Safe Pet Wipe. To close out our pet wipe blog series we wanted to reach out to those of you that are already using pet wipes and or shampoos to encourage you to read what’s in the ingredient list.
Here are a few very scary ingredients that are regularly seen in kitty and doggy wipes:
The risks associated with these chemicals get even worse with kitties as these chemicals quickly find their way to the kitties internal organs via ingestion (grooming – not just through skin absorption). As scary as these substances are, leading brands continue to use them under the “natural” or “safe” ingredient claim.
We have written extensively about toxic and lethal substances that manage to make it into your fur baby’s bloodstream or digestive system via “natural” or self-designated “organic” dog and cat products. Here are a few additional posts you may want to check out:
We highly advise that fur baby parents be more aware of these chemicals and avoid the use of any product containing these substances. We know you want the best for your fur baby, and we do too!
How does your wipe/shampoo stand up to this scary list?? Does it pass or fail?
