The hits keep on coming from our clients at Thera-Clean Inc. Click here to view this case from our client Lucky Paws Pet Grooming in Brewster N.Y. A hot spot was beginning to form so Lucky Paws jumped into action with a Thera-Clean Bath and let the science behind those micro bubbles perform their magic. As you know hot spots causing burning and irritation making the dogs scratch the affected area. Healing a hot spot ASAP is essential in keeping the symptoms to a minimum and clearing up the problem area quickly. This case was 1 bath and the after pic was 6 days post bath. A chemical free, and green approach made this big of an impact in 1 bath! Because CLEAN skin is HEALTHY skin! Since we are talking about hot spots please remember this is a bacterial infection usually caused by skin itching due to environmental allergens, food, ﬂeas, mites, insect bites, wounds etc…The irritant causes the animal to scratch thus opening the skin and inviting bacteria to enter the dermis. This why a Thera-Clean Bath is not just for skin problem animals but as a preventative and maintenance measure as well. If the animal does not have soaps left behind to dry the skin or other irritants on and in the skin there is no reason to scratch resulting in open wounds for bacteria and fungus to enter. Never forget that a Thera-Clean Bath is great for every animal!

For those of you who are new and for those of you who it has been a while since you received the low down on the enzyme and mineral bath addition to the bath water we will review here quickly. Firstly know that enzymes are catabolizers. That means they eat organic material. So the enzymes are going to soften that sebum crust as well as eat away at it allowing the micro bubbles to lift the crust off quicker and more effectively. Enzymes also aid in breaking down proteins and fats. Then to round it out, the enzymes act as a catalyst to make all the other ingredients work together and better in a more synergistic way. This cuts down on the amount of time you need to bath the animal. We all know in this business that TIME IS MONEY! Secondly, the all natural minerals serve many very important functions. Again this helps shorten the duration of the bathing session as well as TURBO-CHARGING the effectiveness of the Thera-Clean Bath. Some of the minerals (borax) are an ANTI-INFLAMATORY. This is seen immediately with those animals that come in with the red inﬂamed skin that is on ﬁre. Post 1st bath the skin is more of a pink in color and the dermis is played down considerably and not as swollen and irritated. Borax also provides: -Natural Essential Nutrient -Boosts Immune System -Antimicrobial Compound -Fungicidal Agent -Detoxifying Agent. Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate: [...]
