The Zoom Groom is a soft, pliable rubber grooming device with rows of flexible rubber cones. The Zoom Groom is effective for pets with less dense coats; however, I found it to be more valuable as a pet massager. The soft rubber cones massage your pet’s skin while removing loose hair, dirt and dead skin; they stimulate circulation and natural oil production to the area, leaving your pet with a healthy, shiny coat. The Zoom Groom feels good so your pet will enjoy being groomed.
However, I find one of the best reasons to own a Zoom Groom is for its amazing ability to remove loose fur from your clothing, furniture and throw rugs! The flat side of the Zoom Groom works better than any sticky-paper lint roller that I have ever tried, and you don’t have to constantly try to pick off the used sticky-paper.
The Zoom Groom also does a remarkable job removing pet hair from furniture. My elderly cat enjoys sleeping on the cloth sofa cushions. As her fur then ends up on that cushion, I put a little kitty bed on the sofa for her to sleep in; she immediately moved to the other side of the sofa to sleep on a different cushion. As you can see by the video (when the cat is not blocking the lens), the Zoom Groom quickly removes the fur from the sofa cushions.
Zoom Groom is great on area rugs, too! I have all-hardwood floors in my home, so I have a few throw rugs placed here and there, which of course the bunnies like to sleep on. I don’t always wish to drag the vacuum cleaner upstairs to vacuum two throw-rugs, and extracting large bunnies from small throw-rugs to take them downstairs for vacuuming (the rugs, not the rabbits) yields much thumping and vengeful glares. Zoom Groom to the rescue! A couple of minutes with the Zoom Groom and the throw rugs are fur-free and clean: ready for the nearest bunny to start the process all over again. I keep one Zoom Groom on each floor of the house.
As an added bonus, the Zoom Groom is actually made in the U.S.A.!
Zoom Grooms are available at the new location of Pet Care Solutions at 4011 Marshall Road, just behind the Speedway at the intersection of Stroop and Marshall (in the former Maytag store).
