Help avoid hairball impaction in rabbits and ferrets with the ergonomic FURminator deShedding Tool. This top-selling pet groomer reduces shedding up to 90%, removing loose hair before it can be ingested. Stainless steel edge reaches deep beneath your pet's topcoat to safely remove undercoat and loose hair. One-press FURejector button easily cleans accumulated hair from tool. Textured handle fits your hand, maximizing grooming control. 1-5/8" x 1.5" x 5" long.
For best results, we recommend deShedding your pet immediately after washing and drying. Use only on a completely dry coat. Our extensive line of FURminator deShedding Products are designed to promote healthy skin and coat and reduce excess shedding.
Before using the deShedding tool, perform a complete physical inspection of your pet. If you see tangles or matting in his coat, take him to a grooming salon for professional treatment before using the deShedding tool. Look for sores, bruises and skin conditions, which may be concealed by his coat. If your pet has any of these conditions, seek treatment from a veterinarian before brushing.
Use the deShedding tool much like a brush and gently stroke across the pet's coat in the direction of hair growth, angling the stainless steel teeth of the deShedding edge toward the coat. Start from the head and work your way back, using extra care near the pet's stomach, legs, genitals and anus. Avoid making excessive strokes in a single area, instead using long, gentle strokes up and away from your pet's skin. Deep or rough brushing can cause your pet's skin to become red and irritated, so do not apply too much weight or downward pressure. If you notice any redness or irritation, discontinue use.
Remove excess hair from the teeth of the deShedding tool as you work by pushing the FURejector button.
Can the deShedding tool be used on all pets?
The deShedding tool may be used on most long- and short- haired pets, including dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, ferrets and other small pets. The long hair edge is designed to make grooming long hair pets faster and easier. The deShedding tool should not be used on non-shedding breeds or on pets with particularly sensitive skin.
How long does it take to use the FURminator deShedding Tool?
The average time required to complete the process is 10-15 minutes, though the actual time will vary depending on the breed of your pet and the condition of his coat.
Where should I perform the grooming process?
The deShedding tool will remove a high volume of loose hair and undercoat, so for convenient cleanup, choose a location that is easy to vacuum or sweep, such as a tile floor or outside. Always choose a location where your pet's comfortable and safe.
