Brushing your dog or cat can be an awful chore. The brush is often uncomfortable for the animal, and cleaning the hair out of the brush and off the floor can be a hassle.
Terry McFadden checked out a possible solution for man and man's best friend.
It's called the Pet Zoom and has everything you'd find with a normal brush, with one exception.
This brush is self cleaning or, at least, that's the claim.
Would the Pet Zoom get "brushed aside" in our "As Seen on TV” test? Terry tested it out.
With his dog, Romeo, Terry compared the Pet Zoom to a normal dog brush.
The normal brush was loaded with dog hair. With the Pet Zoom, however, there is this little button on the back side of it. When the button is pushed, a little plate on the front rises, pushing the hair, at least in theory, off the tines of the brush.
Also, if you have a short haired pet you can adjust it. The Pet Zoom is also supposed to be comfortable for the animal because the tines are rounded on the edge and they massage the animal's skin. Then the metal tines attract the hair and allow you to dispose of it easily.
Brushing Romeo’s coat with the Pet Zoom, Terry could feel it tugging and pulling our that loose hair. It made Romeo’s coat feel very smooth.
Then Terry tested out the button that causes the brush to clean itself. It worked pretty well because Terry had a handful of dog hair to toss.
After using normal dog brushes for years, Terry said it’s the best tool he’s ever used, not only because it is able to remove the excess hair, but also because of the way you're able to dispose of it.
Terry gave the Pet Zoom a big thumbs up.
He paid $10 for his Pet Zoom at Walgreen's. You can find it in a lot of stores, and on the internet.
