• Thera-Clean Microbubble & Therapeutic Spa Treatments

  • Love Fur Dogs is widely recognized in the greater Chicagoland area as the go-to place for dogs (and cats!) with skin and coat problems of all kinds. Some clients are traveling to us from a great distance for our treatments and expertise, and veterinarians are referring chronic cases to us that they have diagnosed.

    Our Master Groomer Jennifer is a certified canine esthetitican and skin care expert and will work with your veterinarian (who is the professional for the INSIDE of your dog) to treat the OUTSIDE of your dog for allergies, hormonal problems, fungal and bacterial infections, parasites, skunk attacks, and a host of other skin and coat maladies that you and/or your Veterinarian have identified.

    Thera-Clean Microbubble technology is changing the grooming world, literally. But not just for dogs and cats, but for all Mammals. This cutting edge technology is also being used in human medical research. Some of our human clients are even borrowing our facilities for cellulitis, alopecia, and other issues. We have seen extraordinary results, and have provided significant relief, to some chronic conditions in pets such allergies, mites and mange, bacterial and fungal problems, and alopecia, as well as acute conditions like Hot Spots. Topical medication alone does not always provide the relief needed. Treating the outside of the skin and down deep into the hair follicle can accomplish what no topical treatment can. We can heal the skin from the bottom up, from the inside out. We can interrupt the re-infection cycle by purging all foreign and problematic matters from the lower layers of the epidermis as new skin cells are being formed from the lower layers. And if your dog is just old, or really dirty, the Thera-Clean is the deepest and longest lasting clean you will ever experience. You dog will look, smell, and feel better for weeks. And it even reduces shedding!

    Wire-coated breeds that should have been hand-stripped all of their lives, but were clipped instead, will begin to have skin problems later in life. Thera-Clean helps! Those clogged follicles can be deep-cleaned.

    Our spa treatments feature the leading pet skin and coat product line in the world – Iv San Bernard. Brought to America by famed veterinary dermatological expert Dr. Cliff Faver who was determined to give pet skin and coat the assistance based on the science of what the skin and coat actually needed, ISB products are re-defining what is possible to do for your pet with any skin or coat issue, small or large, chronic or acute.

    And we can assist virtually any skin condition through simple, gentle, natural deep cleaning by our incredible microbubble machine . The microscopic bubbles penetrate deep inside the skin, penetrating inside pores and follicles, literally lift dander, allergens, fungus, bacteria, etc., away from the skin.

    Add to that our spa products that give the skin and coat unique to your dog’s breed what it needs to heal itself – minerals for wire and double coats, humectants and emolients for curly, long, and combination coats, de-tox for troubled skin, and oils for always too-dry short and smooth coats.

    Combining the forces of our incredible microbubble machine – the gentle, natural, safe and effective way to use simple air and water to get your pet the cleanest clean – with our spa quality products: oils and clays, masques and minerals – each one chosen to address the needs of the particular issue, we have been able to help many families struggling with expensive chronic skin problems on their beloved dog or cat who is clearly suffering and uncomfortable.

    Now available at Love Fur Dogs – Thera-Clean Microbubble!

    The only Thera-Clean microbubble machine anywhere for hundreds of miles is HERE at Love Fur Dogs! This stunningly effective new technology is so gentle, so natural – just water and air – delivered in a gentle bubble wash. The microscopic bubbles actually penetrate deep into the skin, inside hair follicles and pores, to lift out allergens, dander, fungus, bacteria, skunk, and other problems. We have seen already among our clients virtual cures of skin and coat issues that have plagued some of our beloved clients for painful years!

    New customers are already traveling from far away just to get this transformative treatment. Highly affordable, especially when compared to years of discomfort for your pet and expensive medical procedures that don’t solve the problem deep inside the skin.

    Here is a diagram that shows how it works:

    So gentle – only water and air – the enzymes in the water break up the sebum crust that normal shampoos cannot penetrate – and then sends very tiny charged bubbles inside the follicles and pores to attach themselves to dander, allergens, fungus, bacteria, and any other problem in the skin.

    Microbubble Treatment Packages

    In order to deep clean the pores and follicles of your dog’s chronic skin condition while new skin is being formed, microbubble packages must be done weekly. The first and second treatments can be done within a week, depending on the seriousness of the condition. Please book appointments at the time you purchase the package of four treatments in order to ensure the package’s effectiveness. Regular ongoing seasonal or monthly maintenance treatments are also recommended for chronic skin problems. Skipped treatments cannot be refunded.

    Note: At the time of the first treatment a fee for normal grooming will be charged, in addition to the purchase of the package. There is also a $2 extra product charge per extra scoop of enzymes per bath if needed.


    After the first treatment, there MAY be an initial itching reaction as the previously clogged pores and skin opens, and surface crusty sebum build-up is removed. This is a GOOD thing! It means the skin is healing. We see this only with about 10% of the dogs receiving new microbubble treatments. You should not see this itching after followup treatments. Keep the area covered with a t-shirt or similar item of clothing for a day or two after the first treatment if this happens.


    To demonstrate our amazing spa and microbubble ability, we are posting below actual results of just one of our miraculous cases of recovery after our treatments!

    We partnered in Spring 2017 with Andrea Keener of Home To Home Dog Rescue of Wilmette and donated weekly spa and microbubble treatments to help a special little Beagle named Ms. Betsy. We started the #SavingMsBetsy campaign (check it out on Twitter), working with many other volunteers including veterinarians and rescue experts to bring her back to life and try to find her a forever home.

    Featured on WGN News, this poor half-blind beagle, missing one eye, was rescued from horrific puppy mill conditions in Louisiana. She had been fed rancid food, lived in trash-filled cages, bred repeatedly, and dunked in dirty motor oil repeatedly to kill the many fleas and ticks crawling on her (it did not work!). She was missing hair on her ears, nose, tail, legs, and her skin was horribly damaged. She was bald in several places – ears, tail, nose, back legs. The skin was black and swollen, covered with scabs and horrific dandruff. She was clearly suffering in silent agony.

    After 6 weeks of treatments with our spa products and wonderful microbubble machine her coat was fully restored, her skin and hair soft and shiny. She is now back to health and ready to find her forever home! For much more about this cutting edge national microbubble phenomenon sweeping the grooming and human medical field, see www.thera-clean.com
