Skunks, sweat, and swimming in stagnant water can leave your precious pup smelling pretty stinky this time of year. That’s why we decided to head over to Ken Caryl Pet Spa, located at 12512 W. Ken Caryl Ave., to meet with its owner, Dawn Olson and learn more about their Thera-Clean Microbubble Bath. Not only is this the only pet spa in Littleton to have one of these baths but they are the only pet spa in the entire state of Colorado to have one. Since we know how much people in Littleton love their dogs, we decided to see it in action for ourselves.
We had a few questions that we wanted to get answered like how it works, what it’s good for and how much it costs.
For starters, how it works is that the bubbles (1/3 the size of a red blood cell) are small enough to travel down into your dog’s hair follicle. Then physics comes into play. Basically, the bubbles work as a negative charge and the gunk in the follicles work as a positive charge. They are attracted to each other like negative and positive charges always are and the bubbles help pull all the organic material (a.k.a. gunk) into the water.
In addition skunks, sweat and stink, the Thera-Clean Microbubble baths are highly recommended for lots of common skin irritations and issues like hot-spots, hyperpigmentation, itchiness, fungal and bacterial issues. As an added bonus, as you improve your pet’s skin condition, it’s hair becomes healthier and your pup will actually shed less!
The cost of the bath depends on the size of your dog.
- Small: $35 (smaller than a cocker)
- Medium: $45 (cocker or larger, smaller than a Lab)
- Large: $55 (Lab, Golden, Shepherds, Doodles)
- X-Large: $75 (Malamute, Bernese, Great Dane)
They recommend a minimum of 3 baths depending on the situation, as the first bath is the deep clean and the healing can then start with the second and third baths. They offer a 3 pack package, as well as some other add-ons.
According to Dawn, she’s seen some amazing results on even the most challenging cases. If you’re curious and have questions or want to learn more about their products and services, visit their website, stop by the store or give them a call.
