A vacuum is an essential part of any pet care routine, but the way they’re used has evolved over time to provide a variety of different and exciting benefits.
Here are just a few of the ways your pet’s vacuum has changed in the past year:1.
A few pet owners are getting better at using their vacuum.
A new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research found that pet owners who use their vacuum less frequently (less than 20% of their daily use) have significantly lower rates of urinary tract infections (UTIs) than those who regularly use the vacuum.
This means that if your pet is in a hurry to get rid of something that has been sitting in a corner for a while, they’ll often use the machine more frequently than they would otherwise.2.
Pet owners are learning to appreciate the differences between vacuum cleaning and vacuuming.
Vacuuming is a process that uses air to blow dust out of your pet.
While it’s easy to think of this as a cleaning process, a lot of pet owners think of their vacuum as the one to get the dust off.
It’s important to remember that pets will often need to be manually cleaned, and that using the machine will also help keep the dust from getting into the air in the first place.3.
Pet vacuum cleaners have gotten more stylish.
A study conducted by the pet cleaning startup The Pet Care Club found that cat owners (especially younger ones) were using more and more stylish vacuum cleaners that are less likely to clog with dust and other impurities, while dog owners are opting for cleaner-looking models with fewer options.4.
Your pet may be a little more at ease with the idea of vacuums in your home.
A 2015 survey by the Humane Society found that 70% of pet parents said they were willing to use their pet’s home as their home for cleaning if it was cleaned daily, compared to only 45% of adults.
The majority of pet owner respondents said that cleaning was important for keeping their pets healthy and feeling comfortable in their homes.5.
You might want to consider purchasing a vacuum cleaner, too.
Some pet owners, particularly those who are older or who have pets that have more extensive vet bills, have begun to look into vacuum cleaners in hopes of saving their pet money.
They may be able to save even more money if they choose to purchase a vacuum for a larger pet.
