What is the danger of the furminator?

Skin and coat health is unthinkable without the right care products. Unsuitable and low-quality goods will not only not bring results, but will also spoil the appearance of the wool, and lead to its loss. In our article, we will talk about the furminator and whether it can be dangerous.

Domestic cats and dogs do not molt seasonally, but year-round. For many owners, this turns into a real torture. It doesn’t matter how often the apartment is cleaned. Fallen wool adorns everything: the floor, furniture, clothes, and even food.

To combat molting, animals are given supplements with fish oil or yeast and their hair is combed regularly. However, not all combing devices are equally effective. Most of them do not remove even half dead hair. The combs often break, and the slickers “go bald”, because brittle cloves get stuck in thick wool. FURminator – an effective anti-molt tool equipped with a safe blade. It removes not only the lost hair, but also the dead deep undercoat, which is still held by friction on the skin and other hairs. This is the only tool in the world that reduces the amount of wool lost by 90%. And do not let the steel blade scare you: it is completely safe and does not hurt.

What is the danger of the furminator?
But then where are the negative reviews about the host? The owners of cats and dogs complain that the tool irritates and injures the skin, cuts off the “live” outer hair and spoils the structure of the coat. Let’s see what’s what.

In fact, everything is simple. The high efficiency of the original FURminator provoked huge demand and … mass production of fakes. The name “Furminator” from its own turned into a household name, and copies for every taste appeared on the shelves of pet stores. Some of them by design and design only vaguely resemble the original, while others are almost an exact copy. It can be difficult to distinguish a fake. Hence the sad results. Fake Furminators do not guarantee efficiency and safety. How well they work depends only on the conscience of the manufacturers. And judging by the reviews, they did not focus on quality.

Fake furminators do not comb hair well. The blade can irritate and scratch the skin, damage the surface of the hair, worsen its structure. Fakes are uncomfortable to hold, they crack and break.

And now remember the original Furminator. To damage the metal blade and the handle made of thick plastic, you need to try hard. The manufacturer guarantees that the original tool lasts throughout the life of the animal (the official guarantee is 10 years, with the exception of the FURflex product line). With regular use, it not only minimizes molting, but also strengthens the hair follicles, makes the coat more beautiful. And a huge number of positive reviews about the original FURminator confirms this!

Be careful and beware of fakes!
