I have 2 very large & fluffy Maine Coons and this works great for getting smaller mattes out of their fur. If there is a large matte I use a few drops of olive oil @ the base of the matte and let it rest for day. The next day the matte with this comb and olive oil usually slips out. If not - repeat. It's not useless against larger mattes but you cannot go into a large matte expecting this comb to do the job without a little prep work.
More Preventative Than Corrective

This works on tiny little baby mats as they’re first forming, but if you have an actual mat already this isn’t going to do the job!
That said, everyone with a furbaby whose coat is able to develop mats needs to have one of these, and brush their baby all over with it at least once a day to prevent the inevitable tiny mats from becoming big full-sized ones!
For reference, I have a 3.4 lb Maltese with a medium length haircut.

The cats have mats!! They hate to be brushed when I reach the mat!! This tool is perfect and the mat was removed without stressing out the cat!!

Not the ultimate solution, but it works pretty well on my "mat prone" doodle cross dog and Maine coon cat. Both are intolerant of brushing and this is good at getting out the loose hair.
Can’t get it to work

I have a little shorthaired girl kitty that gets mats where she can’t reach to clean. I can’t figure out how to make this tool work and she is now very mad at me. I was hoping this would be easier and safer than sneaking up on her with scissors, but looks like I’m going to have to get sneaky with the scissors. The mat just slips straight through this tool and if I try to make it catch the mat apparently hurts kitty a lot.
There’s a trick to using this!!

Get the teeth under the mat—then use a back and forth fast movement as if you were a lady “teasing” her hair with a comb—mats come right out!!
My favorite tool

I have a wavy goldendoodle which means we end up brushing fairly regularly. This tool is perfect for getting out any tangles or loose fur before it becomes fully matted beyond compare. I use it mostly on her legs and butt as her torso and belly rarely develop the same sort of mats. It's not a perfect tool for every part of her body, I would never use it for her ears, head, neck, or tail but for most of the body it works like a dream between groomings.
Good for shredding hair, not for mats

“High-quality, rust-resistant stainless steel blades are sharp enough to cut through the toughest mats without pulling her hair”
The steel blades aren’t that sharp; I was hoping they were “razor” sharp to cut through the mats. It REALLY pulls my cat’s hair (he hissed). I really liked how the comb curved. Unfortunately it is designed for right handed people. I’m keeping it and would recommend it for shedding hair, but that’s not why I bought it.
old cat lots of mats

This works well really catching the loose hair and mats. The old cat doesn't like to be combed, but I just use this for a couple of sweeps across her and do a little every day.

Very disappointing. Purchased as it was like one I got from a different brand and it doesn't work at all.
