Oh the Fur, the Fur!

by VetDepot on September 30, 2010

Pets bring a lot of happiness into our lives, but also a lot of fur.  How is it that a 30 pound corgi or an 8 pound cat can seemingly lose their body weight in hair on a daily basis?  But do not despair; it is not the destiny of every owner to be coated from head to toe in their pet’s fur.

Groomers have known the secret to deshedding for a long time, using clipper blades not just to cut hair but also to “strip” loose hair from a pet’s coat.  The closely set teeth of a clipper blade are ideally spaced to grab shed hair and pull it free.  A quick swipe of the hand cleans the blade for another pass.

Finally, this groomer’s trick is now readily available to pet owners.  The FURminator deShedding Tool is essentially a clipper blade attached to the end of a comfortable and ergonomic handle.  Many different sizes are available to suit cats, dogs and even horses.  Give it a try.  You’ll be amazed at the pile of hair that results.
