Is it time to reconsider the disinfectant you’re using in your veterinary clinic?

The disinfectant you use in your veterinary clinic needs to be safe for animals

Many of us see the start of a new year as a good opportunity to re-evaluate the products we use. For veterinary clinics, one of the fundamental products used every day is disinfectant.

Have you been using the same veterinary disinfectant in your clinic for some time? Then you need to ask yourself a few key questions.

Does it irritate your eyes and throat?

The Safe4 team spend much of our time out on the road visiting vet clinics, animal shelters and boarding facilities across Australia. One key piece of feedback we get from staff in all of these places is that Safe4 veterinary disinfectant doesn’t irritate your 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!

Is it the most cost-effective option available?

When you do a side-by-side comparison with the other well-known veterinary disinfectant product available for purchase in Australia, Safe4 is easily 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 Parvo Virus 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 disinfectant 25L @ $1553.00 used at 1:125 will make 3,125 litres = $0.497 per litre diluted.

That’s a saving of $0.189 (almost 19 cents) per litre, which adds up pretty quickly over time.

Are there any toxic chemicals in the ingredients list?

When you’re using a product around animals, it’s important that it is completely safe for staff to use as well as safe for the animals in their care. With Safe4, 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.

Has it been independently tested to prove its effectiveness and safety to use around animals?

Disinfectants that are specifically designed for the veterinary industry – such as Safe4 – need to pass additional testing and scrutiny before being approved for sale.

The disinfectant you use in your veterinary clinic needs to be safe for animals

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority carefully assess veterinary disinfectants, including their effectiveness against viruses and bacteria, the ingredient list, and safety data, to ensure the product does what it says it will do, and that it is safe for use in a vet clinic setting.

These stringent checks and balances, and subsequent approval for sale for veterinary disinfectant are not required for regular disinfectant products.

Does it have a chemical smell?

You can still have a sparkling clean and decontaminated environment without having to put up with a chemical smell.

Safe4 disinfectant is available in three different scents – apple, lavender, fresh mint – as well as an odourless option.

Do you need to rinse it off afterwards?

Unlike regular disinfectants products, a big advantage of Safe4 disinfectant – thanks to its absence of any toxic chemicals – is that both animals and the people who care for them can be exposed to the disinfectant while it is still wet. This is because Safe4 veterinary disinfectant has a neutral pH of approximately 7.6 when diluted and does not require rinsing after application. This saves you valuable time and makes cleaning a much more streamlined process.

Safe4 is also non-corrosive, non-tainting and non-staining and all recommended dilutions, meaning you’re not going to damage your surfaces or flooring like many regular disinfectant products can.

But don’t just take our word for it…

Here’s what one happy customer had to say about the Safe4 range of products recently:

This range is absolutely BRILLIANT!! I use most of these products to keep a clean & germ free workplace. It is really well priced & a superior product.
