Tom’s TV Test: Pet Zoom Brush

brushSPRINGFIELD- The Pet Zoom Brush is advertised as a handy, inexpensive tool to get rid of excess pet hair. It retails for about 15 dollars. It’s cheap, but does it work?

We took the Pet Zoom Brush to Doggy Dooz in Springfield, one of the most popular and respected groomers in the Pioneer Valley. Paula Cox, the owner, agreed to put it to the test.

“It’s supposed to be able to get through the coat get through wet and dry brushing which is really good. You push this button here and the hair goes away!”

Sounds simple. But will it do the trick? We needed to find a fairly hairy volunteer.

“Dempsey’s a good one to do it on. Want to try it on Dempsey?”

Dempsey had no problem sitting still for the brush back.

“It grabs really nice it really it really does get to the skin I can tell,” Cox said. “It has a little button here that you press and the hair comes off.”

The Pet Zoom also comes with an attachment to get tougher tangles out.

“If you had something deep in the fur you would catch it kind of like a rake. Here’s a couple little things from out side that were stuck in the coat and here we go.”

And like many of the As Seen on TV products, there are pros and cons.

“It seems pretty sturdy for the money your spending,” Cox added. “It’s decent amount this dog doesn’t really shed anyway. The bristles are a little flimsy. I’d like to see the bristles a little stronger. I don’t know how long this would last but if your going to brushing a small dog during the week I think this would be just fine.”

And Dempsey was just fine. Enjoying his brush with fame courtesy of Pet Zoom.
