Rated 5 out of 5 by AndiMc Great for mats
We have two Maine Coone kittens and have used for both of them, it makes combing those tricky mats out much easier and the kittens are more willing to be combed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RescueTheCats Works well on loose tangles and mats
I have this rake style tool as well as two other mat cutters. It is excellent for the the loose mats that can be combed out and do not require a cutting mat tool. I have 3 part main coons. Best use of this tool is for long haired cats, of course. These wide spaced teeth are good for a start on mats, then you can move to a wider toothed "comb" and then, depending on the fur, I might use the fine toothed flea comb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle Amazing for removing tough mats!!
When I got my new cat he was covered in big thick mats that were making him very uncomfortable. I tried to get them out but he hated being brushed. I found this brush and decided to give it a try. Within just a few brushes the full mats came out and while he didn't enjoy having it done, I was able to make the process much quicker and now he is feeling so much better and he is a much happier cat. Definitely recommend! And thank you Chewy for the super fast delivery!

To be honest, this mat and tangle remover isn't ideal. For starters, the device is incredibly small. The size might be helpful for small dog breeds, but definitely not for medium and larger breeds.
It's also not particularly easy to remove mats with this device. Perhaps there's some mystery technique that makes disentangling mats less complicated and less arduous with this gadget, but I certainly don't know what it is...

Rated 5 out of 5 by waterdog Excellent for tangles
I have used a similar tool in the past. This works great on my curly coated dog. When it reaches a tangle it works its way through and doesn't pull on the hair enough to bother my dog. The hole in the handle is perfect for putting one finger through to take stress off of the wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malteselover1 Mat Miracle Tool
I took a chance ordering this Mat Remover just hoping it might help a little. To my surprise with the right technique it worked like magic. I have a show quality Maltese so I keep his hair long since it is too pretty to cut. He plays with our kitten and gets lots of tangles and mats. I use a detangler spray and this comb starting at the ends and the tangles come right out with gentle strokes. Deep mats take a little longer but I have yet to have to cut one out with scissors since I bought this comb. Saves time and hair!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by highlanderct The best detangeler there is!
I have been using this to detangle and brush my pets coats for almost 20 years. It is not always available in stores. So I was super excited to see it online with Chewy.com. It is truly the best brush and detangler out there! Simple design, pain free for my pets when groomed and a great price. Thanks for making it available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kss123 Great comb and really gets down deep
This is a nice smaller comb. It has very long "fingers" to reach right under that coat and get to the mats.
