Important Information

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

Way too small

The "teeth" are 2.5 in width and 0.5 long...The handle is also too small for my hand. A child/teenager's hand might be a good match. The picture looks like it's way bigger. No way that I can use this on my mini Aussie. Might work on a small cat or teacup dog.

Does not work well with labradoodles

The teeth are too far apart and too short; unlikely to remove fleas.

It was ok, but not great.

It pulls on the fur and doesn't really do a great job.

I have one from about 15-20 yrs ago. I still have it. I ordered a new one because mine is old. The new one has a different wood handle and the comb itself. Very cheap looking. The difference? My old one was made in England, the new one in China. I won't order another one or even recommend this. Not worth what they are charging for it.

wooden handled flea comb

Excellent basic flea comb. I recommend it completely. I do not use chemical flea control, not because I'm opposed to it (water is a 'chemical', as is salt and other 'natural substances', folks!), but because I can save the expense and spend time bonding with my dog by flea combing her. Take a cup and add some warm water with a few drops of dish detergent. Sit on the floor and have your dog between your legs. Begin combing. when you do the upside the fleas run to the downside, and vice versa, so you may have to turn her a few times! Smart fleas... Once a flea is on your comb, flick the flea(s) into the cup of water with detergent drops in it. Detergent breaks the surface tension of the water and causes the flea to drop to the bottom in a horrific drowning event. YAY! Then it can't bite your beloved, procreate into thousands more fleas, and the world is a happier place. You get to spend time with. your dog, knock off the fleas, and have the satisfaction that you have made your little doggie a LOT more comfortable! Happy combing, people!!

What happened to Safari?

I have a ten-year old version of this exact comb that I bought 10 years ago that works great and both my cats love. It gets a ton of fur out. I ordered the same one again because the one I have is getting pretty old and I was really disappointed. It gets almost no fur out. I can only imagine they redesigned it making it worse instead of better :( I would buy another flea comb if you have cats and want to use it to remove fur as well as fleas. I can't imagine it would actually remove any fleas either since it can't even remove the fur.

Too fine to get thru dogs coat

Useless because it is too fine toothed. Can not even get it thru my dogs hair. Not the Chihuahua or the silkie/ Yorkie terrier. Pulls and hurts when I try to use it. Can not recommend this product.

A bit flimsy

This comb is definitely not for most dogs. It is very lightweight and does not go through the dog's hair well. I guess it would work on a very small breed with very short hair.
