Scientific studies show that homes with pets contain a much higher number of bacteria and a more diverse range of species.
The vast majority of bacteria harboured by pets pose no threat to humans and some are even useful, but there are several species that animals can track into the home that are harmful to other pets and their owners.
Zoonotic diseases can be transmitted via pet toys, grooming aids, bowls, mats, bedding and other shared surfaces around the home.
Pet grooming can also lead to infection in animals because the hair follicles become contaminated with bacteria, in the vast majority of cases, Pseudomonas or Staphylococcus.
However there is one pet product currently available that will inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria.
The ultra-hygienic Pet Angel grooming brush, deigned and produced by Richard Ward, incorporates the same tried and tested Biomaster antimcrobial technology developed for the award-winning Tangle Angel brush.
The Pet Angel bristle design gently coaxes out knots and tangles with ease, delivering effortless grooming, and is also proven effective at reducing the growth of unwanted bacteria on the brush.
The active antimicrobial agent is built into the product during the manufacturing process, so the protection lasts for the useful lifetime of the brush.
Biomaster can be easily introduced into almost any pet care item offering product protection resulting in fewer bacteria on surfaces. For more information visit the Biomaster website.
