We are implementing Original furminators of the American company "FURminator", and provide a guarantee.
Shedding a beloved pet is a natural and beneficial process. At home, our fluffies do not always want (can) lick off their undercoat and delight the owners with omnipresent wool and hairy “rolling stones on the floor”. And although the moult occurs twice a year, it seems that it does not stop, and the wool on clothes, beds and food causes a wild desire to shave your pet by bald. 🙂 Only this will not solve the problem (only if you do not plan to shave it once a week).
This problem was solved by Anji and David Porter, a married couple – groomers, in the USA in 1997. Drawing on their many years of experience, they created a furminator – a simple comb resembling a rake. The special design of the teeth does not cut, picking up and lifting the dead undercoat. The distance between the teeth is sufficient so that the guard pile slips between them and does not harm the skin and coat of the animal. Properly selected furminator will help your pet not only to easily get rid of excess weight of wool and dirt, it will evenly distribute the natural fatty grease throughout the pet’s hair, making it beautiful, shiny and healthy, prevent the formation of tangles and shorten the molting period by half.

How does the Furminator?
Furminator for cats and dogs is a specialized device designed to effectively comb out the undercoat of animals and reduce the period of their molt. The whole secret of the furminators lies in their unique design features.
The comb-blade with numerous cuts is fixed on the comfortable, rubberized handle, which very quickly and painlessly remove the dead undercoat of the animal without damaging the guard hair. And if for a good-quality combing out of a pet with a standard comb, it will be necessary to spend a total of 2-3 days, then the furuminator will cope with this task in one session of intensive work with wool, removing 90% of all dead hair.
In addition, the furminator has the following positive properties:
- prevents excessive tangling of wool and the formation of tangles;
- completely safe, and great for both short-haired and long-haired pets;
- preserves the guard hair, which contributes to improving the quality of wool in general;
- evenly distributes the animal’s natural fatty grease, making its coat shiny, soft and healthy;
- speeds up the molting period by 2 times.
Furminator is perfect for cats and dogs. But! If the dog has a minimal undercoat, like a crested greyhound, or it does not have it, like a Yorkshire terrier, you cannot use the furminator. In more detail the breeds of dogs for which the use of this device is not recommended are prescribed in the manufacturer’s instructions. As for the combing process itself, it is usually liked by animals and does not cause aggression on their part.
There are two main types of Furminators:
Furminators of the Classic version, as well as their manufacturer, the FURminator company is widely known and popular all over the world. This is the first version of the generators released since 1997. Reliable monolithic handle and reasonable price have been in constant demand on the market for not a single year.
The DeLuxe series is a new version of the familiar furminators created in 2010. Having changed the design, making furminators brighter, the developers of the model retained the quality and did not forget about the benefits. The new model has a button – FURejector, for simple, quick cleaning of the blade from wool, and the new rubberized handle does not slip in your hand and relieves tension from the hand. Also, this line is divided into long (Long Hair) and short (Short Hair) wool.
Separately, it should be noted that the depth of combing of the wool of the classic furminator variation is equal to the version of the deluxe designed for short-haired pets. Accordingly, putting an animal with very long hair (more than 5 cm) in order by means of the classic furminator will be problematic.
Both classic and deluxe versions are distinguished in depending on the width of the ridges. blades on:
- small furminators (4.5 cm) recommended for combing cats;
- furminators medium (6.8 cm) for medium-sized dogs;
- large furminators (10 cm) for large dogs.
But do not forget. That this division is rather arbitrary. If a person has several pets that need combing, then he can purchase a furminator corresponding to the size of the largest of them, and then use it for all other pets.
Furminator application rules:
- In order to avoid damage to the pile of the animal, the furminator is used only for combing completely dry wool. To achieve the most effective results, we recommend using the device after washing and thoroughly drying your pet.
- Furminator allows you to comb a fairly large amount of wool at a time. Given this fact, before starting to use it, mark the animal in a place that can later be easily cleaned with a vacuum cleaner.
- In the process of combing, direct the furminator exclusively in the direction of growth of the pet’s hair. Perform smooth, progressive movements, avoiding excessive pressure on the handle of the device. Take extra care when combing sensitive areas — legs, abdomen, anus, and genitals.
Excessively pressing the furminator handle, excessively deep or rough cleaning can damage the delicate skin of animals, cause irritation and pain. Perhaps even the appearance of burns in pets, the skin of which is sensitive to any effects. Immediately stop combing, if you notice irritation or redness on the skin during the use of the feedminator, otherwise the animal may be seriously injured!
Before using the furminator, you must carefully examine your pet for damage – wounds, abrasions, irritations, rashes or bruises. If any, use of the device is strictly prohibited! You should contact the veterinarian, conduct procedures of a therapeutic nature and only then resume combing using a furminator.
