The Effect of Chlorine Dioxide on Your Pet
SNiPER, Nok-Out and Your Pets
The dilemma of animal keepers and pet owners is that if they disinfect cages, litter pans, dog runs, and/or other animal spaces, they put their animals in jeopardy of chemical poisoning, but if they don’t thoroughly disinfect, they put their animals at risk for disease. Veterinarians tell us that most deaths are premature and unnecessary.
The best answer to date has been to remove pets from their enclosures, scrub the habitat clean, and treat the enclosure with one of a number of nasty (and often expensive) chemicals. It is then necessary to come back later to wash everything down, and hope that there is no dangerous contamination lingering from either the pathogens of the disinfectant. The problem is that most disinfectants are toxic and corrosive, therefore, many disinfectants are not safe to use around pets, period.
Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2)
Our approach involves the use of stabilized ClO2. This remarkable substance is the primary disinfecting and odor eliminating ingredient in our products. SNiPER has been thoroughly tested by the EPA and it has been lab tested to kill everything from canine parvo virus to ringworm to the current corona virus. In our formulation, ClO2 is non-abrasive and non-corrosive, which makes it safe for use on almost any surface and around animals. The EPA evaluates all disinfectants for toxicity (to humans) in 4 areas – to skin, to eyes, to lungs and if ingested. SNiPER receives the lowest toxicity rating that the EPA gives out – in all four categories.
The chemistry of Chlorine Dioxide is radically different from that of chlorine itself. Technically speaking, both are oxidizing agents. Chlorine tends to react with organic matter by attacking cell walls and creating by-products, some of which are toxic and carcinogenic. ClO2 disassembles organic compounds through a mechanical action, rendering them harmless and odorless. It’s this difference that explains the superior performance of chlorine dioxide versus bleach (sodium hypochlorite).
A Superior Product
The anti-microbial efficacy of chlorine dioxide against bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa has been repeatedly demonstrated and documented. Local pet rescue communities tell us that they like the fact that you can spray Nok-Out directly on the pet to soothe issues related to ringworm and mange. Largely, this is due to the fact that our products are non-abrasive and non-corrosive.
What is the Difference Between Nok-Out and SNiPER?
Both Nok-Out and SNiPER use the exact same primary active ingredient – stabilized chlorine dioxide. SNiPER has been thoroughly tested by the EPA as a disinfecting product and can be looked up on the EPA website as product #71700-2.
NOK-OUT, a true deodorizer, is the pet owner’s best friend to eliminate odor, protect the environment, and cause no harm to the owner, or his pets. SNiPER is the Disinfectant product that will also eliminate odors without harming the pet.

Cats Get Old!
Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!
Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew
I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.
Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell
Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.
Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.
A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!
Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!
Thank you, Ted!
I Am Amazed at The Results!
I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!
Removed All The Feral Cat Urine
Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.
Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann
We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️
Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor
I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!
“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”
Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!
My Mildew Stain Disappeared!
I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!
Rotten Potato Smell Gone!
There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!
Best Odor Control for carpet
Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products
