The FURminator® deShedding Tool is an excellent and effective product. It has an amazing design that loosens and removes the undercoat on your pet. Dogs and cats have two layers of fur. The top layer is longer and thicker. The under layer is very downy and soft. The under fur is usually softer and finer than the top coat. Many combs and brushes remove the top coat, but don’t catch the under coat fur. The FURminator is the best at removing both layers of fur.
FURminator deShedding Tools are available for cats, dogs, small animals, and horses. You can choose long-fur or short-fur FURminators. You can browse the variety at the FURminator website.
Using the FURminator will greatly lessen the amount of shed fur around your home and on your fabrics.
My favorite thing about the FURminator is that it reduces hairballs! My longhaired cat was having tons of hairballs – probably a hairball per day or every other day. When cats lick and groom themselves loose fur gets pulled up by their tongue. This fur is then swallowed and turns into a hairball in the stomach. Once I began using the FURminator a few times a week on my long-haired kitty his hairballs nearly stopped. The number of hairballs he has reduced by at least 75%. I was thrilled not to clean up hairballs every other day and my cat wasn’t hacking up hairballs all the time (which can’t be fun!)
FURminator deShedding Tools are expensive. They range from around $40 to $75.
I know this seems like a huge price for a comb, but the FURminator deShedding Tool is the last comb you will buy. It is an effective fur removal tool. It really works! Before buying my FURminator I bought so many combs and brushes trying to find one that worked and that equaled a lot of wasted money. From my experience the FURminator deShedding Tool is well worth the investment.
