Protecting Our Loyal Companions

Nowhere is the quality of indoor air more important than in medical spaces where our vulnerable loved ones’ health is at stake. Veterinary clinics can face poor indoor air quality due to urban air pollution, surgical gases, and particulate matter, making it vital that these facilities remain safe, welcoming spaces for pet owners and visitors. Keeping the air in veterinary practices hygienically clean is also crucial not only for the health and safety our furry friends, but also their caregivers.

Good veterinary care requires clean indoor air.

Infection control policies in veterinary clinics can often be overlooked1 but there are far more harmful contaminants than just pet dander lurking in the indoor air.


Of the 175 species of pathogens classified as emerging, 132 (75%) are zoonotic and have been associated with diseases including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and avian influenza, which have emerged on a global scale2.


Veterinarians are amongst the more than 250,000 healthcare workers in the US who may be exposed to waste anaesthetic gases, putting them at risk of adverse health effects and certain cancers.3
