Thanks. I specifically googled the MSDS sheet, which didn't come up in my initial search and wasn't readily accessible on the manufacturers' website. I found the list of chemicals you mentioned. And I also looked at the potential health effects listed on the safety sheet:
Inhalation: Slightly irritating to upper respiratory system. Persons with respiratory problems should avoid breathing dust.
Eyes: Slight irritant. In case of eye contact, flush with water.
Ingestion: Small amounts are not likely to cause harm. Ingestion of large amounts may cause rash, diarrhea, nausea.
Skin: Does not normally irritate skin. In case of broken skin, wear gloves and wash dust from skin with soap and plenty of water. Large amounts absorbed into bloodstream may cause rash, skin peeling, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness.
Cancer: Neither the end product nor any of its components.
Her rabbit had developed an eye ulcer that did not respond to treatment by an excellent rabbit vet, despite trying a series of different drops and ointments over a few months. I wonder if had anything to do with the "litter" she was using.
