A recent survey conducted by Consumer Reports found that Americans use more than two billion pet safe and Tide detergences a year, and one in five Americans use a pet-safe detergent.
But, according to a new study, the pet-safer option may not be worth the risk.
In the study, published in the Journal of Consumer Behavior, researchers surveyed 2,000 pet owners about their use of pet safe pet detergens.
The researchers found that only 3 percent of pet owners said they used a pet safe product every day.
Another 18 percent said they never used a detergent at all, while 18 percent were not sure.
Only 4 percent of those surveyed said they use a detergent with the pet safety label on the label.
“It was not surprising that pet owners were unsure about pet safe products,” said study author Elizabeth Shafer, a research associate in the psychology department at the University of California, San Diego.
“But the pet safe label can be misleading and can be misused by pet owners.
For example, if the pet is an older dog or cat, it may not have enough experience to understand the brand or what it contains.
If it is a young cat, the label may say it contains a pet formula, which may not mean the cat is actually pet-free.”
“This study shows that pet-safety products can be confusing and potentially misleading,” Shafer said.
“If pet owners do not understand the brands or benefits of a detergeth, they may take the product too far.”
The survey revealed that a whopping 96 percent of people surveyed were unsure of the benefits of pet-Safe pet products.
For pet owners, this can lead to confusion when trying to determine which products are safe for their pets.
Shafer and her colleagues asked pet owners to rate the pet product they used the most.
For those who answered “not a problem,” only 16 percent of the pet owners knew that the pet food and shampoo was pet safe.
In contrast, when pet owners answered “a problem,” almost half of the dog owners had heard about the pet shampoo and pet food products.
“Pet owners are likely to overestimate their pet’s safety,” Shafers study concluded.
“While this could be due to misconceptions and overuse, pet owners should understand that pet safety products are intended for their dogs and cats, not for other pets.”
Pet owners also may use pet-friendly detergenses incorrectly, the study found.
One of the most common pet-related misconceptions among pet owners is that pet safe is a product that is safe for dogs, but not for cats.
Pet Safe pet products are designed to protect pets and not cats.
Shafer’s research team found that pet food companies have created a range of pet food options for dogs and their owners.
Pet Safe Pet products do contain the pet formula ingredient, and pet owners may have to supplement their pet food with these ingredients if their pets are allergic to certain ingredients.
Shafer noted that petSafe detergends have a higher percentage of pet ingredients than pet safe dog food and cat food.
“PetSafe detergent does contain the same ingredient as petSafe dog food,” Shaver said.
But petSafe products are formulated to be formulated to meet a specific age or health requirement for your dog, Shafer explained.
For dogs, the most commonly cited requirements for petSafe pet food are three to six months old.
But there is no standard age for dog food, so there is a wide range of dog food brands that meet this requirement.
For cats, there is not a specific requirement for age, but many cats are fed a formula formulated to have a certain amount of calcium, vitamins, and other nutrients.
Shaver noted that it is impossible to tell how a product will react to your cat, but some pet food brands are not suitable for cats, such as a brand with a high protein content.
“The only way to know if your cat will benefit from petSafe is to see if the product will help your cat,” Shavers study concluded, “and if so, how much.”
