How to choose a furminator?
FURminator is the No. 1 anti-molt tool. It reduces the amount of wool deposited by 90%, which is not affordable for any brush or slicker. But to achieve the result, it is important to choose a model that is right for your pet.
The first thing to keep in mind before buying a tool is the risk of stumbling into a fake. Carefully study how to distinguish the original “Furminator” from the fake one, so as not to throw money away and harm the pet.
When the fakes are separated from the originals, it remains to determine which FURminator model from the current assortment will suit your pet as much as possible. What to look for first?
How to choose “Furminator”?
Type of pet
FURminator produces separate lines for cats, dogs, rodents and ferrets. Choose a line designed specifically for your pet, as The design of the tool takes into account the length of the coat and the size of the animal.
Little kittens and puppies “Furminators” will not be needed. Kids practically do not fade, their coat is not yet fully formed. But this does not mean that they do not need to be combed out.
It is recommended to accustom pets to grooming from deep childhood, moreover, careful combing stimulates blood circulation and improves the quality of the coat. Symbolically comb them with a soft comb, and the first acquaintance with the “Furminator” in the future will be excellent!
The “adult” FURminator is recommended for use from 8-9 months.
For ease of use, “Furminators” are divided into dimensional rulers.
In cats, this is:
S series – for miniature breeds,
L series – for large breeds.
XS series – for dwarf breeds,
S series – for small breeds,
Series M – for medium breeds,
L series – for large breeds,
XL Series – for giant breeds.
This classification allows you to increase the effectiveness of the tool. In the process of combing, the blade covers the optimal area of the coat, which is convenient for both the owner and the pet.
Another important criterion is the length of the coat. If your pet’s fur length is more than 5 cm, a tool for long hair is suitable for him, if less – for short.
Why does FURminator release separate series of tools for shorthair and long-haired breeds? The fact is that a certain length of teeth is suitable for a certain coat of hair. This allows you to catch as many hairs from the deep undercoat as possible without injuring sensitive skin.

Which “Furminator” to choose?
Pay attention to the variety of models and trim levels. You can purchase the classic Furminator, a tool from the FURflex line or the Furminator Combo with a removable handle and nozzle, as well as handles and nozzles separately. Why is this done?
If you have one pet, the classic “Furminator” will suit you. But if there are several pets and they differ in size and type of hair, then combing them with one tool is not possible. Special nozzles were invented so that the owner did not have to buy several separate “Furminators”. You use one pen and different nozzles, each of which fits a specific pet. It is not only very convenient, but also very economical.
Based on the above criteria, you will make the right purchase!
