Deshedding Tool for Dogs: FURminator for Dogs Undercoat Deshedding Tool for Dogs
Are you fighting a losing battle with loose hair from shedding?
Dogs always have and always will shed. Dog owners will be in this never ending battle as long as dogs live indoors. Most dog owners will tell you that vacuuming is simply not enough. Large dogs can mean large amounts of loose hair throughout your home.
The Large Long Hair Dog FURminator(R) deShedding tool is specifically designed for dogs from 51-90 lbs. and with coats longer than 2 inches.
1. 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(R) deShedding products are designed to promote healthy skin and coat and reduce loose hair from excess shedding.
2. Before using the deShedding tool, perform a complete physical inspection of your pet. Remove tangles or mats with a FURminator(R) Slicker Brush or Finishing Comb 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.
3. 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.
4. Remove excess hair from the teeth of the deShedding tool as you work by pushing the FURejector(R) button.
