The HydroSurge® brand has a proud history of inventing revolutionary pet bathing systems for professional groomers and veterinarians everywhere. In 1983, HydroSurge® developed the first forced water animal bathing system called the PowerBatherTM system. Its primary purpose was to drive medicated shampoos through heavy, thick coats and down to the skin to help pets that are suffering from dermatological conditions. In the process, they found that the dogs loved the massaging action and bathers loved the stress-free bath. The PowerBather also dramatically reduced bathing time – pets could now be bathed in a fraction of the time it took to hand-bathe.
