The original FURminator has received rave reviews from pet lovers. But, if you thought the original FURminator is as good as it gets, you have to check out the new and improved line - the FURminator deLux Collection.
Petside was lucky enough to get a sneak peek when FURminator sent us a free brush to test before it hits stores on December 1st, 2009.
The new FURminator has the same brush that removes mountains of undercoat from cats and dogs, but with added comfort for the groomer. The handle has been redesigned for easier grip. And it really does help! The new thumb support makes it virtually impossible to drop the brush while grooming even the most fidgety pet.
FURminator also added a hair ejection button - the cleverly named FURejector. Now you never even have to touch the removed fur. Just push the button and the hair falls out of the tool.
The brush quickly and easily removed the overwhelming amount of undercoat my shedding Sheltie usually sprinkles around the house. My favorite part about the FURminator tool is how it untangles even the nastiest mats I find behind my dog's ears and in his armpits. Normally I would have to cut those mats out, but if I hold the base of the tangle with my fingers and work through it with the FURminator, the mat comes out and my dog didn't even notice that I was pulling on his coat.
I saw the real FURminator magic when I brush my cat, who is not nearly as cooperative when it comes to brushing. The FURminator tool is the only thing that she will let near herself. She purrs and sprawls out, letting me brush out the belly and chest. If I just hold the brush in front of her, she rubs the sides of her face in anticipation.
The Original FURminator was great, but now, with the newly added easy grip brush and the FURejector button, it is better than ever!
Remember to check your local pet specialty retailer or vet clinic on December 1st to grab the FURminator deLuxe Collection for you cat or dog.
