The FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats helps you remove the loose, dead hair that collects in your cat's undercoat. That's the hair that you're likely to find all over your clothes, bed, carpet, and sofa - anywhere your cat chooses to spend time. Fortunately, there is a great tool that reduces shedding up to 90 percent-the FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats. Give your vacuum a break, and give the FURminator a try. It's recommended by professional groomers and veterinarians alike, and the manufacturer guarantees that the FURminator will reduce shedding better than any brush, rake, or comb. And the patented design allows you to remove the dull undercoat, bringing out the natural oils in your cat's skin and promoting a shiny topcoat and healthier skin. It's also easy to use! The improved design includes a handy release button so you can clean the tool as you groom without having to let go of your cat. There is a choice of a short-hair and long-hair deShedding tool, so you'll be able to purchase the product that will be most optimal for grooming your cat. There is also the FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs that works much the same way. If you've got a dog that sheds, check out the improved FURminator deShedding Tool for Dogs.
As you gently glide the tool through your cat's coat in the direction the hair grows, the patented deShedding edge removes dead, loose hair from the undercoat, leaving a shiny, healthier-looking top coat. The FURminator addresses short-haired or long-haired cats by offering two different sized combs.
The FURminator should never be used on fur that is tangled or matted. If you feel any resistance while using the tool, stop immediately and inspect the coat for tangles. Do not use the FURminator if your cat has any sores, cuts, bruises, abrasions, or skin conditions, as the FURminator could aggravate these conditions. Before using the FURminator on your cat, you should inspect the coat and skin for any damage, and you should never use the FURminator unless the skin and the coat are healthy.
FURminator deShedding tool for Cats
The FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats is used to remove dead, loose hair from your cat's undercoat, which promotes healthier skin and coat.
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 cat's coat before you use the deShedding tool. However, do not use the tool until the coat is COMPLETELY dry. Using it on a wet coat could damage the coat and possibly your cat's skin.
For easy clean up, use the FURminator in an area that is easy to sweep or vacuum.
To protect your cat, be sure you thoroughly inspect your cat'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 cat's coat can hide skin conditions, make sure you inspect your cat's skin closely. DO NOT use the FURminator if your cat has any skin conditions. Instead, take your cat to a veterinarian for professional treatment. It's also important not to try to get through matted or tangled fur. To remove mats or tangles, you should take your cat to the groomer or use professional grooming tools at home.
DO NOT use the FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats if your cat has any sores, cuts bruises, abrasions, or skin conditions, and DO NOT use if your cat's coat has tangles or matting.
For best results, use once or twice a week.
