What every best has:
In tests, most pets like being brushed with the Pet Groom Pro ionic cleaning brush (especially if they like being brushed anyway), but some hate it. One review notes that the buzzing may irritate some pets, and if the pet wears an electric-fence shock collar the brush may set it off. Testers like the Pet Groom Pro's easy-clean feature -- just pop off the faceplate and the accumulated hair comes with it. As for removing loose hair from the pet, reviews are mixed: Some say the Pet Groom Pro pet brush does a good job, while others say their regular brush does better.
We found several TV news stations that tested the Pet Groom Pro ionic cleaning brush. KDKA in Pittsburgh gets a local pet owner to test the brush on both dogs and cats for two weeks, and the website includes the original video segment. Seattle's KOMO doesn't post any video, but its review quotes two pet owners with different opinions about the Pet Groom Pro brush, and it is well written. Other TV reviews are briefer, but still helpful.
Consumer editor Yvonne Zanos and a local pet owner test the Pet Groom Pro ionic cleaning brush and a competing pet brush on four dogs and two cats over the course of two weeks. The brushes do seem to help with odor, although the testers conclude they won't replace baths.
A local pet owner tries the Pet Groom Pro ionic cleaning brush on her two dogs. She says it doesn't remove as much hair as her regular brush, and she thinks the dogs seem cleaner simply because she brushed them for a long time -- not because of the ions. However, another local dog owner comments that she uses the Pet Groom Pro brush to make her pets smell better, and she uses a different brush to get the loose hair.
Reporter Joe Terrell tests the Pet Groom Pro brush on Hannah, a shelter dog. As in the KDKA test, the brush doesn't bother the dog, and it does make her smell fresher.
A local dog owner tests the Pet Groom Pro ionic cleaning brush on her dog. The brush removes plenty of hair, and the owner likes the brush's easy-clean feature, but she says a regular brush would work just as well.
The reviewer tests the Pet Groom Pro pet brush on his own dog, Larry, but he doesn't find it any better than a regular brush. He quotes a skeptical veterinarian who says a wet washcloth will remove dander just as well as the Pet Groom Pro.
