Anyone with a pet knows that sometimes they can be messy. From their muddy paws bringing in dirt to the occasional accident, there is almost always something to clean up when you have an active pet.
But, did you know that some of the products you might be using to clean up these pet messes can be harmful to your little one? In fact, the ASPCA reports that household chemicals are one of the top pet toxins reported by pet guardians.
Some of the top toxins include ammonia, chlorine, glycol ethers and quaternary ammonium compounds.
