The FURminator is a brush tool made of plastic and metal made to pull loose fur out of your dog’s coat. FURminators come in various sizes for different sized dogs as well as different fur types. The tines of the FURminator are like those of a short comb or brush, but the interior tines have sharp edges to pull out the unwanted excess fur. The FURminator is a perfect tool for year-round use, but especially for the times of year your dog sheds the most. In between the seasonal changes where your dog may be blowing his coat, the FURminator will likely get more fur loose and off of your dog before he drops it all over your house.
If your dog loves to be brushed, he will love this tool just as much as any other tool, if not more. If he's apprehensive about being brushed with the FURminator, give him some treats and some extra love while you groom him. He will get used to it.
The Furminator is a great tool to help with shedding dogs. Be sure you get the right size and style for your dog's type and size. Terminate shedding issues by brushing your dog with a fabulous FURminator.
I’ve been using furminator about the last week and my dog is itching now. Could it be like razor burn from furminator and be itching her?
Thank you for the question. Starr is a real beauty! I have not used the FURminator before but I agree with you that it is irritating Starr's skin. I would discontinue using it. After she heals, you could try it again (I would give it several weeks) and if she starts itching again, then you will know that it is the FURminator. If you stop using it now and she is still itchy after a few days, consult the vet in case there is something else going on. Good luck!
