Where the fluff have you been all our lives?
There's regular old pet grooming brushes...and then there's the Furminator. Perhaps one of the cleverest tools you can have in your pet care arsenal, the Furminator doesn't just brush your cat or dog: it does more than that.
How does the Furminator actually work?
Brushing your dog or cat with a regular comb won't have the same results as the Furminator. The issue with your pet's shedding (and the cause of the hair you find on the couch, in the car and so on) comes from their undercoat, usually the denser, shorter hair under their topcoat in longer-coated breeds. The Furminator uses its stainless steel teeth to reach deep beneath your dog's topcoat, gently removing the loose hairs underneath. With regular use, the Furminator boasts a reduction in hair drop by up to 90%!
What's the best deshedding Furminator for my dog or cat?
That depends on the length of your dog or cat's coat. For a full ist of recommendations, see below.
What about deshedding shampoos? Do they work?
Used alongisde the Furminator, a deshedding shampoos or conditioner can assist in reducing hair fallout, since they're enriched with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to moisturise the coat while also strengthening the hair shaft to help reduce shedding.
