Important Message from Forest Lodge Vet Practice :
Some people may have seen a post circulating misleading warnings about
hand sanitisers containing ethylene glycol (the toxic ingredient in
antifreeze) and therefore being poisonous to pets that lick our hands
when we've used it. We would like to reassure anybody reading this that
while hand sanitisers do contain ethanol, they do not contain ethylene
glycol and there is no risk to pets who may lick your hands after you
have sanitised them. Ethanol (alcohol) is toxic to us all in large
quantities and therefore we would encourage people to keep hand
sanitiser out of the sight of pets and small children as it could
potentially be harmful if ingested in large enough amounts.
