FURminator Short Hair deShedding Edge For Cats, Small
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 shorter 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.
Shedding Solutions for Every Coat
Cat deShedding Tool
Choose from short or longhair tools for small or large cats
After searching for more than a decade for a quality grooming tool that could solve the problem of shedding, a professional groomer decided to design one herself. The result is the FURminator, a highly effective deShedding tool that quickly and easily removes loose hair from your pet's coat. 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've been wanting to try the FURminator deShedding Tool for years, but it was too expensive, at my local pet store -- $50. So, when I saw it on Chewy and saw the incredible price, I was totally ecstatic and had to purchase it. I wasn't sure how it would work with my cats because lets face it -- cats typically don't like to be brushed. But I have to say that I'm totally thrilled with the FURminator deShedding Tool and the cats actually enjoy it. It pulls out all the excess hair and definitely helps with shedding. If your cat will tolerate being brushed, then I would highly recommend the FURminator deShedding Tool!
Works Great, and my Siamese loves it!

Get the real thing it is Amazing.
Has really helped with fur ball spit ups, since this gets the hair so she doesn't gag when giving herself a bath.
Webbie now demands to be groomed...can't believe how smooth her coat is now, Or how much undercoat was piled up, even using it daily I get 8-10 super full brushes.
Tried the cheaper clones, waste of money.
Had to purchase 2nd one because my daughter's furbaby , who up til our visit Hated to be brushed or combed, loved it so much I left mine with her.
Great for Grooming

My cat sheds like mad. Her hair just gets everywhere, and other brushes I've tried only get the loose hair from her top coat. This brush gets deeper into the fur to help get rid of extra, loose hair without being uncomfortable for my cat. She loves being brushed now, so much so, that I have to hide the FURminator or else she'll steal it to rub her face against it.
Holy Cat! What a Godsend!

I inherited this shorthair tabby, Patrick 18 years old, sheds so much, I was like, what the heck have I gotten myself into?! I have a longhair (Himi) and Bella doesn't even compare! Got to a point where I wouldn't even pick him up, because I usually wear black! (Invested in those roller delinters.) The area where he sleeps is a NEST of hair! I asked the previous owner, did he always shed like this? Yep, ever since he was a kitten. OMG. I don't know if I can keep this animal. And then, I bought this tool! This is fantastic> all you do is take long gentle swipes down his coat and have a trash can nearby. The undercoat hair just comes off without any muss or fuss. Every pass is a whole combful ofI inherited this shorthair tabby, Patrick 18 years old, sheds so much, I was like, what the heck have I gotten myself into?!

As long as I am gentle, and don't stay at it too long in one session, he doesn't mind it at all. Just a couple swipes over all the areas every day. And you can clean off the hair into the trash can with a push of the button. I wouldn't use it on my longhair, but if you have a shorthair who sheds a lot, this is the tool for you! Seriously. Thank you.… more
Does What It Says

Admittedly, when I saw the price of this brush (and nearly double Chewy at my local chain pet stores) I was extremely skeptical! It had to be a dang good brush to be worth that kind of money. I was using a standard metal pin brush followed by a detangler and all around it was probably half the price as the Furminator. But this brush is worth every penny. I wasn't expecting much as far as fur coming off, as my other 2 brushes pulled almost nothing off. I figured that was due to daily brushing and it meant my cat wasn't shedding. Oh no, was I wrong! Within 3 brushes, the Furminator was clogged and doing just one quarter of my cat (the left side of her back) I had a clump the size of my fist.

I was cognizant that you could brush too much and potentially pull out good hair, so I tried to be conservative and within 10 minutes I had a clump of hair the size of a kitten. This definitely shows the amount of hair regular brushes don't get off and doing this twice a week, I feel it has significantly reduced her shedding and even leftover dander, which when I first adopted her, she suffered from due to stress and a poor diet and cleared up significantly but would not completely go away. This is worth every penny and I recommend it to everyone I know with pets!… more

Wow I am totally blown away with what this brush can do. I have a Siamese cat who tends to shed quite a lot. After one use of this brush the hair was never ending, I didn't realize she had that much hair to shed. I definitely recommend this brush to control hairballs as well as shedding!

I'm glad I bought this brush for my Bengal cat. I thought the other brushes I used worked well until I used this brush. I couldn't believe how much fur I got off of her using this. Buy one and see for yourself how great it is.

I had another brush that was very good (paddle type) but needed a second brush. With all the rave reviews I had to try the FURminator. My cat is short-haired and likes to be groomed (on his terms, of course). He seems to really enjoy this brush. With just a couple of strokes, a ton of hair comes up. The downside is that because there is only one row of teeth, it has to be cleaned out frequently during one grooming session. With my other brush, the more I brushed my cat then dandruff would appear on his black fur. I don't see any dandruff with the FURminator no matter how much I brush him. It's pricey, but worth it.
Always a good purchase

The Furminator is a must-have, and my cat loves it. It's hard to believe how much fur comes off him with just a quick once-over (fur he'd otherwise end up swallowing), and I could stuff a small pillow with what I get from a couple of days of good brushing (FYI, he's a short-haired kitty). P.S. Use gently because this brush is sharp! I wouldn't let a young kid use it without supervision.
Best investment for your cat's coat

I bought a small FURminator brush for my shorthaired cat Jupiter, and it's been a game changer! I thought I was getting a lot of fur off of him with a typical silicone brush, but the FURminator gets his undercoat and dead hair off of him easily. My cat is not a huge fan of being brushed (it overstimulates him) so I brush him when he's calm and only do so for about 5 minutes at a time.
The nice thing about this brush is you don't have to apply firm pressure at all for it to be effective. Just hold it at a 45-degree angle and gently run it through your cat's coat. It might seem expensive for a brush, but you won't regret it.
