Just Like humans, it is part of any pet’s proper hygiene to be kept clean as much as possible. However, for many pet owners, giving their furry pets their regular baths can be a painstaking thing to do, especially when it comes to cats. A splash of water is enough to whip our feline friends into a wild frenzy. What should take around five to ten minutes of is frequently prolonged to an hour, if there is scratching, barking, yowling or worse, biting involved.
This is the reason why experts have been devising other ways to keep a pet squeaky clean without having to get into a frenzied cat fight or a dog chase. One such method is to use an ionic pet brush, which has been proven to be safe both for the pets and their owners, as well.
The ionic pet brush is simply a handheld device, operated by a battery, which produces a stream of positive ions. These ions are the ones responsible for getting the pet’s fur clean. The safe level of ozone that this revolutionary brush releases is enough to neutralize any odor so your pet smells clean and fresh even after just five minutes of brushing.
The big advantage about using the ionic pet brush, obviously, is that pet owners no longer have to use soap, water or other harmful chemicals that could damage your pet’s fur and skin. Aside from saving lots of money for not having to use those items, pet owners no longer have to struggle during bath time with their pets.
The use of the ionic pet brush should not completely substitute bathing with shampoo and water, though using it frequently can help prevent the pet’s skin from drying. The ionic pet brush is not limited to cat and dog use either, because it can also be used to clean other animals such as horses, rabbits, ferrets and others.
What should one look for in an ionic pet brush? The ionic pet brush comes in different versions and although each one is slightly different from the other, they ultimately offer the same functions. However, the most important features that you must consider when purchasing this brush, are its effectiveness in removing pet odor, ease of use and durability.
While most of these brushes are generally quiet to use, some could produce certain levels of noise which your pet may not be comfortable with. It is best to opt for quiet brushes that are also lightweight and do not require a 100 page manual to use.
Maintenance is also an issue when it comes to this electronic device. Make sure that the plates of the brush can be removed easily, so that it is easy to rid of accumulated fur and dirt. Some brushes may come with interchangeable combs, so you can use them for both shorthaired and longhaired pets. Of course, you must also keep sight of your budget when making your purchase. There are lots of ionic pet brushes to choose from, so take your time as you shop around.
