FURminator Long Hair deShedding Edge For Cats, Large
Cat/Grooming/Brushes & Combs
Shedding is a problem most cats face and tends to be heaviest in early Spring and early Fall, but indoor cats often shed year-round. Up to 2/3 of the hair a cat sheds is ingested during self grooming, resulting in hairballs that are messy, stressful to the cat and the cause of potentially serious problems. Every loose hair brushed is one less to swallow.
Designed for use with coats longer than 2 inches, reduces shedding up to 90%
Stainless steel deShedding edge reaches deep beneath your cat’s short topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair, FURejector button cleans and removes loose hair from the tool with ease
Effectively reduces hairballs, keeping your cat healthier and happier, guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, rake or comb
Recommended by veterinarians to help prevent dangerous hairballs from developing
Patented technologies, designed by a groomer for professional results
Shedding—it seems like a losing battle that pet parents can never win. It's true that you'll never stop your precious furballs from shedding, but you can reduce the amount of hair that gets all over with the FURminator deShedding Tool. Designed by a professional groomer, this ingenious tool reaches beyond the topcoat to remove loose hair from the undercoat. It gently pulls away the dead hair without hurting your pet's skin or damaging the protective undercoat.
The Gentle Grooming Solution
When you can tell everywhere your pet's been just by the hair trail left behind, it's time for FURminator to step in. Their popular deShedding Tool won't scratch the skin, and you can even use it on the ears and tail. Instead of cutting the undercoat, it only removes the hair that's already loose. With 10-20 minute sessions just once or twice a week, you can reduce matting and bring out the coat's natural shine.
Less Hair, Less Work
FURminator deShedding Tools help you cut down on your vacuuming time by reducing your pets' shedding up to 90%. Believe it or not, the hair that you find all over the house—clinging to the furniture and your clothes, and hiding in corners with its "tumble-hair" buddies is mostly from your pet's undercoat. This hair gets trapped under the topcoat and then sheds pretty much everywhere—unless you have a handy FURminator!
The FURminator Advantage
There are tons of deshedding tools on the market, but the FURminator is recommended by vets and professional groomers worldwide because it gives real results. The stainless steel edge has special compact teeth that push through the topcoat and gently rake away loose hairs. A convenient FURejector button releases the hair from the tool so it doesn't build up on the deShedding edge. Plus, the easy-grip handle is comfortable for longer grooming sessions.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
With cats, there's an extra benefit to using FURminator. As steadfast groomers, kitties constantly lick their fur. And because only a third of the hair they shed ends up on furniture and clothes, two-thirds gets ingested. That can cause yucky and uncomfortable hairballs, and can lead to serious health problems, too. Instead of medication, you can help prevent hairballs by using the FURminator regularly.

Now there's a whole line of FURminator grooming products, from anti-itch shampoos to brushes and combs, and even nail grinders. Pet parents have put their trust in the FURminator line because these tools are made with quality, and they actually work.
I gave this product 4 stars as I have seen what it can do on long-haired animal companions.. Unfortunately, however, I cannot rate this item based on personal experience as my cat tried to rip my arm off after the first stroke! I do not think I was using it incorrectly, she simply did not want anything to do with the FURminator! I mean, this was one crazy angry cat. I felt bad for her distress but also for the fact that I have seen what the FURminator can do for long-haired animal companions. I thought it was the perfect solution. But not for my cat. Would recommend people try it for their pets, but with a wee bit of caution to see how your pet responds.
Great product but takes finesse!

Recently adopted a 6 year old long hair female kitty from ASPCA and wanted to get her started on a brushing regiment immediately. Saw this product at a local pet store and was intrigued but it was very expensive. Chewy had an incredible price and I immediately purchased. I love the product but have to say I was surprised at the sharpness of the blade. My kitty likes to push up into my hand
while being stroked and I have to be careful to not let her push too hard against the blade.
Great, useful product. Just recommend using a gentle pressure and being careful against kitty skin.
A MUST HAVE!

First off let me say the price is unbeatable. These things are $42 at petsmart. I got mine for $22 (with shipping)! Great deal. And the shipping was so fast, came in a couple of days and was packaged well. My cat has a problem with hairballs, not throwing them up but having them come out the other end, which isn't nice.. she would have trouble using the bathroom cause of the amount of fur in her stool. So I decided to get this to help. So much hair came off of her, she really needed this brush. She's medium hair but I got the long hair cause her hair is thick. I'm hoping this helps her use the bathroom with ease. I'm sure it has to help some with the amount of hair I got off of her. Thanks chewyFirst off let me say the price is unbeatable.

Anyone who owns a long haired cat knows how much they shed, well i have 2 long haired cats and one short. I used the Furminator large comb on my Persian and i removed enough loose undercoat to make 2 new cats, holy cow, the fur was flying! I used it on my other LH cat, again, enough hair to make a 3rd cat. And let me tell you, both my cats are mad it me! But no worries it isnt because of the furminator, its cause they hate to be brushed,, and usually brushing signifiers a bath afterwards.
Their coats look healthy and shiny and really nice. This is one of the best combs i own, and i am a licensed cat groomer

I had my groomer show me how to use this before I did so myself. It takes off an amazing amount of kitties' undercoat! I use this on my two long haired kitties, and after using the softer brushes. Oh! And please be VERY careful not to use this over any "bony" parts (spine, hips, shoulders) as that can hurt the kitty. I also love the hair ejector button, and the snap on cover for protection when being stored!
Mind blown after just one use!

We are so beyond impressed with this product. Our big guy is very afraid of the loud noise any type of razor makes. And most brushes can not get down to the bottom coat to pull out dead fur. He suffers from dandruff and dry skin and we are very hopeful that with the use of this brush those problems will go away. He loves the brush and it does not seem to bother or hurt him at all. His coat looks healthier and feels softer after just a one time use. We would recommend this product to anyone with a cat who suffers from dandruff and constant shedding of dead hair. Our pets deserve to be pampered and have great skin and hair like we are able to do for ourselves.
like a charm

all of my cats are long-haired, constantly shedding and forever having hair mats, which turn into hairballs, which end up on the bottom of my sock in the middle of the night. not funny...
a couple of passes through their fur with the "furminator" every four days or so and the shedding is minimized and the "gakking" is less troublesome...
how cool is that??!!
LOVE, LOVE,LOVE it!!

BEST Long Hair DeShedding brush we have ever used!! This works works great!!
Our fur-babies actually enjoy this tool. We got so much shedding fur off them. I use this about 2 times a week for about 10 min, They want more time with it, but we don't want bald kitties :D
They give it 2 paws up!!
Great price too!!
I Really Like This

I use this on my long haired cat. He isn't a big fan of being brushed, but if I use a light touch, he will tolerate it. I get lots of loose fur every time I use the FURminator. I hope to avoid grooming costs to get rid of matted fur. Very good purchase.
Wow! Amazing product!

I admit that I was a little skeptical at first when I heard about the Greatest Cat Brush Ever. But I bought it anyway and it is amazing how much hair it removes from my long haired cat. I was originally using a comb on her, which I thought would be more than adequate in managing the shedding, but the Furminator removes about 10 times as much hair, and she loves it!
