They start out appearing so innocent...
the new pet owner may not realize
that they are really chewing and shedding machines!
Ensuring that co-existing with your furry companion stays pleasant for all is much easier if you do your homework before adopting that cute pup. Any experienced dog mom will tell you that it's not always a walk in the park, but taking the time to be informed before making the 10 yr + commitment, as well as arming yourself with the right supplies, can make all the difference in ensuring your experiences or more pleasant than troublesome!
Grooming is no small part of the Pet Mom routine. Even with our short haired Lab, regular brushing is a must!
I was recently given an opportunity to test the
Pet Groom Pro ~ a unique grooming brush with ionic technology, designed to remove shedding fur and odors from your pet's coat.
With a removable Snap N' Clean Plate, cleaning up after grooming and disposing of fur is much easier than with traditional grooming brushes. The extra firm bristles are specifically designed to tackle thick undercoats, removing mats in the fur. Installing a battery allows the user to switch on the silent, ionic feature.
Putting the Pet Groom Pro to the test on our short haired Lab, we were pleased with the results. Our boy seemed to enjoy the feel of the ball tipped bristles and the brush was quite effective at removing his shedding fur. As with all of our brushing experiences, fur does tend to go everywhere, but a significant amount was trapped and held in the Pet Groom Pro plate.
Switching on the ionic feature did not produce a visible effect, however, I believe that is inherent in ionic technology as one cannot observe the effect of an ionic air cleaner, either.
Overall, the Pet Groom Pro did a good job on my Lab of removing his shedding hair and stimulating his skin. I found it light weight and easy to use. The removable plate did make it easy to dispose of the fur, although I had some difficulty replacing the plate on the brush. Of course, my 10 yr old reattached it in mere seconds. My seasonal allergies preventing me from being able to discern whether or not it was effective in odor reduction.
