Grooming is an essential part of keeping your pet clean and healthy. Coastal Pet Products offers a full selection of Safari grooming tools that make this task quick and easy. One product that is essential for every household with pets is a flea comb. This comb can be used to make sure flea control products are working properly. In addition, the closely spaced teeth on a flea comb allow you to examine the overall condition of the coat. Dry skin that may appear after bathing is easily detected when using this flea comb. For pets with skin afflictions, dried blood collected in the fine teeth of this comb will alert your customer that their pet may have a rash, sore or other problem.
Safari Flea Comb is used to control fleas, ticks and to help identify skin and coat problems
Ideal to use after flea powders or shampoos
Removes pests from your cat's coat without irritating flea-bitten skin
Contoured to fit in your palm for better control
Easy to use, just start at the head of the cat and brush throughout down to the tail
Before using, groom your cat with a Safari cat comb or brush to remove mats and tangles that could damage the teeth of the flea comb. If needed, apply flea treatment before combing.
Comb your cat slowly, periodically checking the teeth of the comb for fleas or debris. Pay particular attention to areas around the ears, nape of neck and base of tail. Between strokes, dip the cat flea comb into a cup of water with mild detergent to kill the fleas left on the comb.
Our thieving kitten stole their previous comb to use as a toy and hid it somewhere, so I wanted a replacement. I wasn't sure about the length as I was used to a much shorter handle, but I actually like it a lot. I find the flea combs good at getting out loose undercoat hair, and it's also great for Gump who tends to get a lot of dandruff. Nice rounded ends on the bristles make it easy to keep from accidentally scratching their skin.
soft, light feel

This flea comb is fun to use because of the way it handles. It is light weight, and the fine teeth trap the fleas quite well.
To get rid of fleas I use a white coffee mug (it shows the flea) filled with steaming hot water only. One dip does them in fast and a tissue is used to clean comb of fur and bugs.
I have read others using a cup of soapy water but, doing that just leaves a soapy taste and residue your pet then has to deal with.
The Safari is, however a delicate comb. The teeth bend very easily. Just treat it gently and this Safari flea comb will definitely capture the fleas.
Flea Comb / Safari

Very happy with this flea comb. Really like the handle and design. It has done a great job at trapping fleas and holding them until I dip the comb into hot water or a zip baggie with a few sprays of a natural flea killer. The cats are not bothered by the combing, but let me know if I'm pressing a little too hard.
This comb works

I didn't even know that flea combs existed until I saw a flea on our cat. After searching online for flea remedies, I ordered this comb and some flea shampoo, and gave Pepi his first bath, which he didn't appreciate at all. But he loves to be combed, and I use this comb many times during the day. With vacuuming and combing, we're finally getting control of the flea problem.
BUY THIS COMB

If you think you might have a flea problem, this comb is the best way to help identify. I have two indoor only cats, and I noticed them scratching pretty often. I ordered this comb, and now we are in the process of treating them for fleas. When I comb them most of the time the fleas get stuck in the teeth so they can't jump away. I pull them out of the comb and then immediately spray the flea with Vets Best Flea and Tick home Spray. It is an all natural spray and it kills fleas instantly. This comb has been a life saver and we are finally starting to see the light at the end of this flea tunnel!!
Better than other flea combs

This comb will pick up fleas - multiple fleas in one comb. Have an infestation of fleas in my home and on cats and use this comb several times a day to help control them without using pesticides on my cats. In fact they have begun to dread this comb. Have a jar of hot water beside me or a zip lock bag to deposit fleas as I come upon them. The majority of time the fleas are within the tight combs which allows for killing them. Highly recommend this comb. I use the comb to sprinkle diatomaceous earth on it and comb it into the cat's fur and that is helping control the fleas along with vacuuming.
Safari Flea Comb for Cats
on Sep 12, 2017
I saw one of these at the vet's office and thought it was wonderful. Never knew these existed. Bought it and am so glad I did. It is wonderful. The flea medicine that you give your animals (at the base of their neck) just doesn't work like it used to. The Fleas are getting too smart. Even the vet said so. So now, I comb my cat out every day, just to make sure she is healthy and flea free (along with the flea medicine). It works great.
Winner in my search for best flea comb
on Aug 5, 2017
Unfortunately, I found myself in the middle of a flea infestation in my house. Ugh. So I ramped up the vacuuming, carpet shampooing, and sprinkling of diatomaceous earth on my carpets, and tackled the fleas on my cats directly with frequent combing (the expensive topical treatment only seemed effective for a couple of weeks). I bought a number of flea combs, and this Safari comb is hands-down the winner. Its teeth are fine enough and close enough together to catch even the smallest and most slippery of fleas. Be sure to shake, flick, or wipe them quickly into a bowl of soapy water. Use caution not to scratch your cat and don't let the comb get caught in the cat's loose, wrinkly skin.

I love this comb, though; it has been invaluable in my battle against those dastardly, vicious fleas.… more

I definitely would recommend having one of these on hand at any point whenever owning a pet. This comb has been a life saver when making sure my cats are flea free.
Flea comb works great

I hate using any harsh chemicals on my pets so I got this comb and it worked great and my cat loved being combed. Took about two dozen fleas off her in less than a half hour. Great tool!
