Cleaning with Pets

Most households have a member of the family that looks a little different. Some of these members have more legs than normal, a few have wings, and most have a true hair and feather growing anomoly. And, like all those who have differences, these members of our families require a little bit of special TLC.

In case you haven’t guessed, I’m referring to the dogs, cats, birds, spiders, snakes, and other animal members of the group we call pets. Each one needs special care in order to remain healthy and happy in our homes. Even the way we clean affects our little critters.

Pets cause some odors and many have a few accidents throughout the course of their lives. While the odors and accidents may not be a pleasant gift to us, how we clean them can make a difference to our pets. Some animals are sensitive to the cleaners we use to expunge ourselves from their natural perfumes. In fact, more than a few of our animal kingdom friends have met with an untimely exit because of the chemicals they were exposed to in the name of cleaning.

If there is any doubt as to the attraction of chemicals to pets, one only has to think of the canine variety of pets special love of antifreeze. The reason our chemicals cause this type of reaction in animals is the smell of the product. Most cleaners have a sweet or flowery smell that mimics the things in nature that each breed is attracted to naturally. What’s worse is the actual flavor of these chemicals may also mimic nature. This can be seen in children and pets who ingest paint chips containing led. The led lends a sweetness to the paint that is rather appetizing but deadly.
