Pet Dander or Grooming Mask
We love our pets! But, while grooming a dog, horse, cat or any furry animal, the air you breathe may contain hair, dander, parasites and bacteria which, after repeated exposure, can cause or contribute to bronchial problems. This is especially during “shavedowns” and the grinding of nails that groomers often endure on a daily basis. Many of our customers are dog and cat groomers that are looking for protection from what is now being coined “Groomer’s Lung”. They have reported the Breathe Healthy mask is effective and comfortable enough for all-day use.
A Breathe Healthy® multi-layer, washable, antibacterial, adjustable, “fun to wear” mask, can be worn as a groomer’s mask or pet dander mask, or for general pet allergy protection. It effectively filters hair, most dander, dust, and parasites, and is made with hi-tech materials that wick and repel moisture away from the face, allowing for greater long term comfort. Our masks can be worn for an extended period of time without getting unbearably hot … and are available in a variety of pet friendly designs.
Groomers – Always try to work in a well ventilated area, use vacuum shears if you can, and wear a mask when you are doing anything that could put contaminants in the air. We believe that ours are the best, but by all means, please wear something!

What Groomers are Saying…………

I am a groomers assistant/dog bather and I bought two of these masks because they were recommended by a dog groomer I work with who uses Breathe Healthy face masks everyday. This mask is great! I only used it for one day so far, but it is very comfortable, breathable and soft. Their is a bendable piece inside the mask to conform around your nose for a good fit, especially for those of us who wear glasses. The ear loops are adjustable(although my glasses have a little trouble staying on when I look down, which could be my own fault or the ear loop, I’m not sure yet.) My face didn’t get hot, even after wearing it for ten minutes, but only felt warm when I exhaled. For a first time mask user, I was really expecting this mask to be uncomfortable but it was actually very nice to wear.
You could probably wash the mask in the middle of your day and put it back on after a few minutes because the inside dries very quickly. I’m not sure how this would affect the filtering process so it’s probably best to wash it several hours or the night before use. I hand washed it before my first use the night before and it was dry by morning. I wear the mask when i blow dry the dogs to prevent hair, dander or other particles from being breathed in. It works like a charm. They had these masks at the All American Grooming Show. The price($14) is the same here as from the vendor anywhere else, so if you need a grooming mask, your search is over!
(I also use it for when I am disinfecting and cleaning to prevent myself from breathing in harsh chemicals.) (Amazon.com)

Saw ad and story in Groomer to Groomer magazine. Ordered six for our mobile grooming company to try them out. We love them–very comfortable, easy to get accustomed to wearing, wash beautifully. Thank you–and the happy bonus is Made in USA!! Please send info if and when running specials. ……I would add that I wear glasses and am able to wear your masks without the fogging that occurs with every other mask I have tried. This in addition to the comfortable fit really helps with compliance. We are a small family owned and operated mobile grooming company. I am hopeful that the masks allow my kids and me to groom many years in good health. Karen S.

Your masks are so comfortable I find myself walking around after grooming still wearing them! Would like to see some new patterns maybe with fish or tropical scenes if possible.
Keep up the great work! Sean L.

…like I said, I absolutely love the mask and it’s helped immensely. I groom dogs and hate to think how many tiny little hair splinters I was inhaling on a daily basis. The hair doesn’t stick to it, it’s comfortable and my lungs are a lot happier, so thank you! 🙂 You’ll definitely get some good word of mouth from me! I first heard about the masks from a forum on petgroomer.com. A lot of other groomers have your masks and were raving about them, so I had to get in on the action. I’m glad I did! Lindsey J.

Hi, I just want you to know that I received both masks this afternoon and was truly impressed the way it was packed and having that information card speaks volume about your passion and commitment to this business. The designs are impeccable, fun, stylish, so ME! Unlike any other disposable masks I tried and tested, your masks are one of a kind and brilliantly made not only for the fashion conscious (designs and colors), but what they are truly meant for. I will not only protect myself from dander and flying pet hair, but I will also look good while grooming my little dog clients. Thank you oh so much for such an amazing invention!

These masks are a must for any pet stylists out there. Trust me I got a sinus infection from breathing in a bacteria from one of my clients skin almost 2 years ago. I have had two years of oral and IV antibiotics, also surgery. It will not die! I make it manditory for all my employees to wear masks, especially when force drying. Please take my advice and buy these awesome masks. They are so comfortable and cute, and they can literally save your life. Thanks Mike for these great masks!! (Diane T)
