Waterpik Embarks Into the Pet Care Category with New Pet Wand PRO

Water Pik, Inc., the leader in replacement shower heads, enters the pet care category with its latest product offering Pet Wand PRO – a new bathing tool for furry family members. Engineered from the ground up with consumers and their pets in mind, Pet Wand PRO will change the way pet parents think about bath time for good by creating an easier bathing experience. The new pet care line was created because up to 49 percent of households with pets groom those animals at home. The Pet Wand PRO provides a less hectic, more controlled bathing experience for pets – and their owners.

The contoured wand’s shape creates a new high pressure WaterComb™ Spray to penetrate even the thickest of fur and also avoids overspray. Dirt and shampoo that other methods miss are quickly rinsed away for a deeper, faster and more thorough clean. What’s more, the water spray can be controlled in more ways than one using the EasySelect™ dial. Switch from the high pressure setting to a narrow spray for gentle cleaning of sensitive areas and hard to reach spots by dialing counterclockwise, or click into pause mode to stop the water flow for hands-free bathing.

“The pet care industry is growing and consumer demand is there for a grooming tool like the new Pet Wand PRO,” said Water Pik, Inc. President and CEO, Richard Bisson. “Waterpik® has continually delivered a superior shower performance with revolutionizing technologies. The Pet Wand PRO is our first step into the pet care category providing a much-needed solution for consumers that want to make bath time for pets faster and more enjoyable.”

For more than 40 years, Waterpik has been committed to best-in-class engineering and giving consumers the innovative experiences they deserve, and this latest innovation is for an equally important member of the family. According to a recent study from the American Pet Products Association there are 62 million households in the US that own dogs, and in some homes more than one. The Pet Wand PRO minimizes grooming costs and time, and with its limited lifetime warranty users can spend less time bathing and more time playing with their pets. Other features include a diverter that attaches to existing showerheads that allows the water flow to be switched back and forth, an adapter and swivel hose that can be attached to garden hoses for outdoor bathing, and a suction cup hook to apply to the shower wall for hands-free bathing.

Pet Wand PRO is now available at Amazon for a suggested retail price of $49.99, with additional models coming this summer.
