I just discovered that my favorite dog grooming tool is on sale. It’s called the Furminator and I’ve been using it for over a year and a half on my Labrador Retriever Midnight.
As you can see the Furminator is on sale for a very low price right now. When I bought mine -about a year and a half ago I paid $60 for it. Currently the large FURminator deShedding Tool is listed at 59.95, but right now you can get almost $43 off the price! Yes that’s right – it’s only $16.99!
The Furminator deshedding tool has been designed to reduce shedding better than any brush, comb, or rake. This tool works effectively for all shedding breeds of dogs and cats, both long- and short-haired.
What I like about the FURminator deShedding Tool is that it’s meant to be used as a way to thin and detangle the undercoat on dogs and cats, while leaving the top coat intact.
The undercoat of fur on dogs and cats tends to be the major source of shedding and the allergies and cleanliness problems that come with it. It’s said that using the Furminator will decrease shedding by 60 to 80% for about four to six weeks! I’ve found this to be true. A few good grooming sessions when my dog starts to shed and TaDa she sheds a whole lot less over the next month or so.
I have to admit that the tool looks a little brutal – but I’ve never had a problem when using it with my dog. She sits patiently as I run the Furminator through her fur and seems to enjoy being groomed. The tool itself utilizes a unique 4-inch stainless-steel edge that grabs loose undercoat hair and quickly and easily removes it, without damaging the topcoat.
Like most good grooming tools it helps to bring out your pets natural oils and leaves a shiny and healthy topcoat. Many of my readers have commented how shiny my dogs coat is and I think I have The FURminator (and her diet) to thank for that!
Another item that I use when I’m grooming my dog are a rubber grooming tool called the Zoom Groom For Dogs which helps to groom loose hairs, stimulate the dogs skin so it produces natural oils to help create a shiny coat AND it’s also a great tool to use when giving your dog a shampoo!
I often finish a grooming session by spritzing my dog with Miracle Coat Spray-On Leave – In Conditioner & Lusterizer for Dogs. It contains vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil for her skin and makes her smell great!
