5 reasons why our clients use Safe4 veterinary disinfectant

A range of clients use Safe4 veterarinary disinfectant

When Julie and Alf Carter obtained the Australian distribution rights to the world-renowned Safe4 product range almost 10 years ago, there was one main supplier of veterinary disinfectant in the country. This near-monopoly was causing veterinary clinics and animal care providers to significantly overpay for these products.

At that time – and still to this day – Safe4 was the number 1 veterinary disinfectant in the UK due to its affordable price and high efficacy.

Not surprisingly, since Safe4 veterinary disinfectant has become available in Australia, more and more vet clinics, zoos, animal shelters, kennels and catteries are making the switch to Safe4. Read on to find out why.

1. The non-toxic Safe4 formula

The founders of Safe4 worked for many years to formulate a cost-effective disinfectant cleaner that was completely safe for staff and the animals in their care, but still highly effective against harmful viruses and bacteria.

That’s the Safe4 veterinary disinfectant formula? Like the Colonel’s secret herbs and spices, we can’t give you the recipe! However, we are more than happy to provide a full list of the active ingredients.

It’s almost just as important as what’s not in our product as what is. Safe4 does NOT contain any harmful phenols, aldehydes, or alcohol. And when diluted, it has a neutral PH of approximately 7. In a nutshell, this means that our disinfectant is non-toxic, non-staining and a non-irritant.

2. The cost savings

In addition to being highly effective against viruses and bacteria, Safe4 is the most cost-effective disinfectant on the market that is designed to use in veterinary and animal care environments.

Here’s just one example of how you will save considerable money by choosing Safe4:

  • Safe4 dilution rate for parvovirus is 1:100 versus 1:125 for another well-known disinfectant
  • Safe4 25L @ $769.90 used at 1:100 will make 2,500 litres = $0.308 per litre diluted
  • Other well-known disinfectant 25L @ $1553.00 used at 1:125 will make 3,125 litres = $0.497 per litre diluted

That’s a saving of almost 19c per litre, which adds up pretty quickly over time.

3. It smells good

An effective veterinary disinfectant doesn’t need to have an overly chemical smell. Safe4 disinfectant is available in 3 different scents – apple, lavender, fresh mint – as well as an odourless option.

This means you can have a sparkling clean and decontaminated environment, without having to put up with that chemical smell.

4. Independent testing

Our clients feel assured that our veterinary disinfectant has been extensively tested for both its suitability to use around animals as well as its effectiveness against viruses and bacteria.

This testing has been conducted by independent laboratories and gives us the tick of approval for meeting all regulatory and accreditation standards. We pride ourselves on complying with the ever-increasing number of regulations and directives before they become compulsory, to ensure our customers are always in safe hands.

We also have certification from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medications Authority to sell the product in Australia.

5. It doesn’t irritate people’s throat or eyes

A common complaint about other disinfectants is that they make people cough or irritate their eyes.

One key piece of feedback we get from our clients is that Safe4 veterinary disinfectant has never irritated their throat – so there’s no coughing, headaches, or asthma attacks triggered by our product. So, when we say our disinfectant is non-irritant, we mean it!
