Rated 5 out of 5 by Bearasaur The Magic Mat Remover
I saw this tool and honestly was not sure what to expect on arrival from just looking and reading about it. Big Suprise in a Great Way! This is a truly magic mat removing tool. After weeks of using it now I'll be honest, I don't know how or why it works but it does. Not only does it do a wonderful job easily combing right through most mats without needing the sicssors handy but it doesn't hurt or stress any of the dogs. In my book it really is a magic simple to use very effective and helpful tool they nobody with mat prown doggies should be without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kirmc Best detangler!
This tool works really well on my Maine Coon's tangles, knots and small mats, especially in his "armpits" and belly area. Gently untangles and removes the fuzz that caused the tangles.
For a really big mat on my labradoodle I used one of those rectangular safety letter openers to slice the mat up a couple of times then untangled it all with this tool, perfect! Pain free and easy for all involved.
I was hesitant to try this tool as I'd spent much more on other detangling tools that didn't turn out to work well. It just seemed to simple.... However this is the best money I've spent on a detangling tool! My boys enjoy their brushings and I love how easy it now is to get their coat all perfect. it's a win win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BJ29 It works!
My young, long-haired cat gets terrible mats where her legs attach to her body. She is not cooperative when I try to remove them! With this tool and long gloves, I was able to do so. As I had to restrain her, I could use only one hand to work on the mats, and as she refused to roll over, I was working blind. So . . .not the best conditions. Despite that, it worked! They came out easily. She did yell quite a bit (because I couldn't use my other hand to hold the hair while I pulled). Afterward, her skin was a little pink at first, but quickly went back to normal. No lasting irritation. She started running and playing a few minutes later, so it evidently wasn't as stressful as she let on. If a cat would hold still (or if you had another person to help), I believe this could be done with little or no discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mermaid Helps get those matts!
This does not cut out the matts, but if the matt can be easily pulled out, you can simply place the remover behind the matt and gently pull it out. If it is a stubborn matt, you will need a pair of sissors.
My little guy had 2 mats on his back legs which easily were removed by coming them out with this product.
Then there was the tight matt, which I had to literally cut out. There was not budging on that one. Wish this also has a razor like feature to cut the matt out or would help to cut the matt out when the matt is stubborn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pansy Not totally effective for my issue
A great, easily handled tool. I still need a more effective tool to remove large mats of hair from my Maine Coon cat who totally dislikes being brushed in any fashion. I would like a tool that would just "clip out"the mat even though I know that could be dangerous for the cat. I also think that I am not confident in my ability to use the tool properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kmc4020 Affordable brush that gets it all !
I have 4 medium hair cats that have small mats on their bellies and some tangles throughout their coat. I decided to try this brush and it very gently pulled out the mats and tangles and the cats loved it! The tips are rounded and smooth so it doesn't hurt their skin. My 10 year old looks a few years younger becuase his coat is now smooth and tangle free again! You will be surprised as how much hair this brush will get off a short hair cat as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GodaiNoBaka Inexpensive little gadget, but it works!
This was an impulse purchase to solve a real problem. My DMH, Cleo, is constantly getting horrible mats all the way down her back. I suspect her brother is to blame for that! But she HATES being dematted with a passion. Just won't sit still for it, and runs when she seed me reaching for the brush.
This gadget doesn't look like a brush, so she didn't bolt when I introduced it. And it works like a charm. Mats gone, quickly, with no drama. I can't say she loved it, but she tolerated it, which for her is a big step.
