More Information:
Brand Name
FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs (FURminator)
What is this product used for: The FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs is used to remove dead, loose hair from your dog's undercoat, which promotes healthier skin and coat.

How this product should be used: Although you can use the FURminator on a coat that isn't freshly washed, you may see better results if you shampoo and dry your dog's coat before you use the deShedding tool. However, do not use the tool until the coat is COMPLETELY dry.

For easy clean up, use the FURminator in an area that is easy to sweep or vacuum.

To protect your dog, be sure you thoroughly inspect your dog's coat and skin before you begin using the FURminator to make sure there are no cuts, bruises, abrasions, sores, or skin conditions on the skin or any matted areas or tangles in the fur. Because your dog's coat can hide skin conditions, make sure you inspect your dog's skin closely. DO NOT use the FURminator if your dog has any skin conditions. Instead, take your dog to a veterinarian for professional treatment. It's also important not to try to comb through matted or tangled fur. To remove mats or tangles, you should take your dog to the groomer or use professional grooming tools at home.

What special precautions are there: DO NOT use the FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs if your dog has any sores, cuts bruises, abrasions, or skin conditions, and DO NOT use if your do's coat has tangles or matting.


Directions:
Before using the FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs, inspect and remove any tangles and/or matting from your dog's coat with proper professional grooming tools.
Use on a clean, dry coat.
Always start from the head and move down the body, ensuring that the blade and teeth are angled toward the coat. Comb only in the direction the coat grows, and do not use on or around sensitive areas like ears, paws, legs, and genitals.
Gently and slowly glide the tool, using long, smooth strokes in the direction of hair growth. Keep the tool up and away from your dog's skin, touching only the coat. Do not use repeated strokes in the same area, and do not apply too much pressure on the tool as you comb, as doing so can irritate your dog's skin and cause discomfort. Dogs with sensitive skin may suffer brush burns even with light combing. If you notice any redness or irritation, stop using the tool immediately, and discontinue use until you've spoken with your veterinarian about your dog's skin reactions.
When you've finished grooming your dog, always remember to store the tool in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
Tip: For best results, use once or twice a week.

Great Product This is a great product. I didn't believe it when in the pet store, saw the video and thought...NO WAY! But it is a gem. First use on our Bullmastiff Lucy and we must have combed off 5 pounds of hair. Well worth the extra money and no shedding! 06/12/2011
A-Maz-ING I've been dealing with shedding for years and never really knew how to combat it. I adopted a Pembroke Corgi and love the little devil, not so much the eons of hairs all over the place (even after vacuuming). I took a chance on this comb after reading the reviews, and so glad I did!! (Thank you to the other Corgi owner who wrote a review-changed my life too) OMG, this thing is amazing!! The first time I used it I got a whole bag full of hair and his coat feels great!! He even laid down and let me use it after a moment, which he's never done before. Don't hesitate to buy this comb. It's great and you'll never regret it. I look at is as paying for itself if I don't have to take my dog to a groomer. 06/27/2014
A MUST HAVE!! Before I got the Furminator, my house looked like a pillow fight explosion when my dog blows his coat. No amount of vacuuming and brushing him would help - the undercoat just keeps coming and coming...so after watching the video, I bought the Furminator and it's the best!!! My dog's coat looks SOOO much better and he feels better - he looks like he's smiling afterwards! Wow I can build 3 more dogs from all the fluffy undercoat that comes out with this tool. You just need to get the hang of the angle to really get the fluff, but it's easy to use. My dog and I thank you (and my vacuum cleaner may last a little longer:). Recommend for any dog that sheds. 06/27/2014
GREAT PRODUCT !! I just received my small for short hair dogs Furminator and used it on my white Chihuahua and it works great. Dog is very relaxed while I'm using it on him and all the soft undercoat comes out and is easily removed from the product by pressing the button. Highly recommend this product. Received product in a couple days ... thank you 1-800-pet-meds for such a wonderful company and quick delivery time. 06/09/2014
dog/cat lover I use the furminator for my dog and cats, I bought both. but no need 2 since the one is great for dogs does both and the animals love it... would never go back to any other brush :) 05/25/2014

Stripping

We just got a wire hair dachshund pup and we're reading that their undercoat has to be stripped about 3 times a year. Does the furminator do that?
