Long Hair deShedding Tools for Dogs feature patented deShedding edges designed to reach deep beneath the long topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair. Used and recommended by professional groomers and veterinarians, FURminator® deShedding Tools are the only tools guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb.
Directions for use: 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 Shampoos, Conditioner and Waterless Shampoos is designed to promote healthy skin and coat and reduce excessive 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.
We have both a Siberian Husky and German Shepard! We absolutely LOVE this brush! We brush them each once a week and it does wonders!! At first we had lots of fur "tumble-weed" what we called it. It has definitely reduce my sweeping and vacuuming time! And the dogs look great!
