This brush does indeed work well as a loose hair removing rake. However, the moment it hits even a small or loose mat it will snag and tug. I tried different techniques different times, including variations on the “picking” suggested on the packaging, all to no avail- my poor, normally patient longhaired cat was very unhappy and not a single mat had been budged. Perhaps it may work on mats on certain fur types or animal sizes. However, if you are hoping to use this for a cat with mats, DON’T. Spare yourself the waste and your cat the pain, get a regular fine-tooth comb or brush that doesn’t pull like this does.
Works Great - Destoys Mats

Tremendous! Far exceeded my expectations. My cat had major mating issues. This untangled mats in about 15 minutes. Just be careful to pick at the mat, not tug at the mat. What's amazing is my cat hates to be brushed or combed but didn't mind this tool at all. I can tell that my cat is feeling much better now that the mats are gone. I used the wide rake side to breakup the matts. Now, daily I comb him with the narrow rake side to get rid of excess fur. (This one tool has a narrow rake side and a wide rake side.) No more tangles and his fur is so soft, beautiful and matt free.
Not for curly, cottony furred dogs

Wanted to give this a try to help detangle my pups. Their fur gets brushed every day, but still manages to get tangled and matted in some areas (I honestly don’t understand how); even when their fur is trimmed short. I wanted this to avoid any tugging and pulling, but this was surprisingly terrible. This was delivered a couple hours ago and I was so eager to use it. It got stuck in the spots that their normal brush gets through. The only way to get it out was to pull and wiggle, which is what I wanted to avoid. Unfortunately this didn’t work out for us. I’ll be returning this and continuing my search

I have a medium hair tabby. As he's gotten older his fur is matting much more often. He is easily stressed so taking him to a groomer is a whole thing. This comb got 90% of his mats out in about 20 minutes. I'm relieved my kitty has healthy looking fur again.
Didn't work for my rabbit but might work for a larger animal

I have a half-lionhead bun who couldn't handle this rake even with extreme precautions taken; I think rabbit skin is much more sensitive than that of a dog or cat and this is more likely suited to their fur. I ended up just cutting her mats out with scissors.

I'm sure it would work wonderfully if only my mixed Maine Coon cat would just allow me to use it. He matts so bad and so close to the skin. I'll just keep trying and maybe when he's a couple years older he'll let me use it.
Great for my medium hair cat

It took me several tries to get this sent with my Auto ship. Everytime. It would sell out before it would go out. My BB Cat has medium long hair, and I never realized how much was undercoat until I started brushing. And she loves the feel of it rubbing her skin.
simply does not work

this did not work to remove the mats from my pet. the tines for breaking apart the clumps of fur are extremely wide, i had better luck with a 99c hair comb.
Great for getting mats out

My cat has a big issue with matting in the summer time. This tool did a great job of getting out some of the smaller mats until I could get her to the groomer
The best tool for tough Mats
on May 4, 2020
I have a medium-long haired cat who developed two tough mats on his left hip. I noticed he was constantly nibbling/scratching the area and would avoid any sensations around them (and this cat loves all of the pets and scratches). I bought this brush after reading the reviews and bought a second for my coworker who was having similar issues with her long-haired cat. This rake took the two mats out in minutes and caused no pain to my cat or irritation. The remainder of his coat remained beautiful. I gave him a regular brush all over immediately following and it is like the mats never existed. I would 100% recommend this rake even if it’s just a small patch to take care of.
