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.
My cat HATES the de-shedding process and I went through a great variety of de-shedding tools to no avail. When I used this on my cat (short-haired cat, Large) she actually let me use it! She still doesn't like de-shedding but she actually started purring!! My only problem is that the teeth are very sensitive and one already broke off. Other than that, this tool is amazing, I just wish I didn't wait this long to buy it. Also, the price is amazing compared my local pet store, which sells it for $54! Thank you so much Chewy for the awesome prices!
Used at Animal Shelter
on May 17, 2018
I am a volunteer at an animal shelter and we use the Furminator on many of the cats. I don't now which style it is but I know it works well. I have not used it on matted fur but for unmatted fur it gets out all the dry undercoat and leaves the cats looking great. They won't tolerate any lengthy grooming session, and this product gets out much more hair in a short period of time than any brush or comb. I plan on purchasing one for my DSH cats.
Worked Great...for a Day :(
on Apr 16, 2018
I had used the long hair version on a friend's cat and was very impressed with how much fur it got loose, how much of the hair it trapped within the teeth, and how easily the FURejector button removed fur from the tool. Because of that experience, I ordered the short hair version for my three shorthairs. It worked really great the first day; I got a ton of fur off of each of three cats. I got more with one session of the Furminator than probably a week of brushing with both a slicker and soft rubber bristle brush. The FURejector button was completely useless; I had to carefully remove it all with my fingers.

With three cats and at a time when the cats are in the process of losing their winter coats, it's a bit inconvenient that those features don't work. However, the real tragedy struck when in the second session of brushing and deshedding, it lost a tooth. I had read the directions, done it gently, made sure to brush out any tangles prior to using the deshedding tool, stored properly, no dropping, etc. I'm not sure if even using it gently was too much with one of my short hair's particularly thick fur or what the deal was. Maybe with her thick (yet short) coat, I should have sized up to the long hair version, but now it's basically garbage since I don't want any more metal teeth being hazards for anyone to step on or getting into my cats' coats. I'll be going back to brushing daily and actually researching any future deshedding tools a little bit better.… more
EXACTLY What You’re Looking For
on May 15, 2018
This brush simply could not be better. I have been looking for the right grooming brush for my Siamese cat who had been shedding pretty badly due to warm weather. THIS BRUSH HERE is exactly what I wanted! Works perfectly and my little boy loves the way it feels, he just sits and purrs. Now his coat is so soft and smooth. CANNOT recommend this highly enough, awesome product!

I am on the bubble with this item. I have a cat with a few hair mats. I was told to try a Furminator to get the mats out, plus I watched a bunch of You-Tubes and was convinced this tool would take out all dead hair and mats. I found that that wasnt exactly the case for me. First of all you really have to bear down to grab any hair and on the mats, it did remove one but I had to keep working at it. By that time my feline was getting squirmy. So I have concluded that yes, the Furminator can be used to remove hair mats with some effort and patience, but I have gone back to the traditional wire brush to pull out all the dead hair. The brush removes more hair at each stroke, is quicker and more soothingI am on the bubble with this item. I have a cat with a few hair mats.

Does a pretty good job
on Mar 29, 2018
I have always groomed my short-haired cat regularly with a flea comb in one hand and a stiff bristled brush in the other. He is twelve and has never had mats. Recently he started getting hairballs and I thought I would up the ante and purchase the Furminator.
He dosn't seem to enjoy it as much as he enjoys the bristle brush, but it removes slightly more hair than the bristle brush does. Swapping the Furminator for the flea comb and double-weilding, I can remove more loose hair more quickly than I can with the bristle brush/flea comb combination. He tolerates the Furminator best when I make short, light strokes. He hasn't had any hairballs since I started using the Furminator.
Also surprisingly it out does it self

Just as the one for long hair I also purchased since I have two short hair n 2 long n one us Silky hair n the other is a 23lb male thick thick furball angel face. ( who I got five heavy cotton downfur ) and thats each day for 3 days straight n the others where a day. I was amazed getting so much from my short haird furangels. I am very happy with my purchase
Works pretty well
on May 18, 2018
We like the fact that it effectively removes hair, but you really need to brush the cat before to detangle and when you brush them, you need to use short repeated strokes. It works well and our cats don't mind it. I use it in conjunction with silicone brush to remove more hair.
Dannnng-!! You Shed A Lot!!
on Apr 2, 2018
I only had a maltese dog for 15 yrs so I never had a pet who sheds a lot.
My husband is allergic to cat so I needed some solution for shedding.
Heard this does work so I purchased it and it really does!!
You will be (super)surprised how much hair you can get from 10mins of brushing with this.
Good thing about this is it only pulls out hair that already fell out.
Only wish I should have gone with bigger size cause this one is small size and my cat is 14lbs.
Great for large dogs too!
on May 16, 2018
We use this for the cats and the big dogs! I have he large one but it doesn’t work as well as the small one so we use it for all the animals! We have one in several common pet rooms to have it on hand to help with fur control!!!
