What is a Hydrobath?
A hydrobath is a type of bathing system where water containing shampoo is pumped through a shower head at a moderate pressure which allows full penetration of dogs thick hair coats. The pressurised flow effectively removes debris from the skin
During shampooing water is pumped in a recycled system. This is ideal for medicated shampoos which need contact time on the skin to work well.
During rinsing fresh water is used
Why use a Hydrobath?
Hydrobaths are super efficient at moving dirt and dead skin out of the coat, giving a much cleaner result that just hand washing
Hydrobathing here saves lots of mess and drama at home
Medicated shampoos need 5-10 minutes of contact time to work and the recycled pumping right down onto the skin allows this to be accomplished easily
Dogs love the massage effect of the water pump
