By nature, dogs like to sniff around. When dogs look down and sniff everywhere in the house, they will come into contact with disinfectants very close. When pets sniff, irritating disinfectants are easily inhaled into the alveoli, which can cause chronic damage to the dog. Cats love to lick their hair, and the disinfectant ingredients on their bodies may be eaten by them. They are different from that we humans choose to stay away from harmful disinfectants, so dogs and cats have higher requirements for disinfectants than humans. In view of this, it is recommended that pet family disinfection should not use very irritating disinfectants such as 84, peracetic acid, pentanediol, etc. Especially puppies and cats, pregnant dogs and cats, and elderly dogs and cats should pay more attention to it.
