FURminator Shed-Less Treatments

Remove hair from your pet, not your couch.

The thinking behind the FURminator shed-less treatment is simple logic – the more hair you remove from your pet, the less hair you need to remove from your couch, your clothes, your carpet, and your car. Although typical pet grooming is very important, it does not address the underlying problem, which literally, is the underlying problem – your pet’s undercoat.

It’s not the hair you see.
It’s the hair you don’t see.

Your pet’s undercoat can become a dense mess of loose, dead hair – and the major source of shedding. The FURminator treatment was developed to grab and remove – not cut, but remove – undercoat hair quickly and easily. Neither the specialized tool nor the process hurts your pet, and all-natural deShedding Shampoo & deShedding Solution are great for promoting a healthy skin and coat on your pet.

Many pet owners of many different breeds report that their pets seem more comfortable and display less scratching after they’ve enjoyed a FURminator shed-less treatment. So not only is the FURminator’s deep-grooming beneficial for you and your home, it’s beneficial for your pet as well.

Designed for both long and short-haired pets

The FURminator treatment will make both long- and short-haired pets look and feel better. Within one to two treatments, the FURminator has been proven to reduce shedding up to 60 to 80 percent.

Designed for cats as well as dogs

The FURminator treatment makes particular sense for use with cats because it removes your cat’s loose hair before your cat can ingest it and vomit it back up as a hairball in a typically inconvenient place in your home. Less loose hair means fewer hairballs.

Recommended by Veterinarians

The FURminator treatment has been endorsed by veterinarians who understand the importance of maintaining a happy and healthy pet. According to veterinarians, the overall health of your pet is based, in part, on keeping your pet both clean and comfortable.

Healthy fur and coats are found on pets with healthy diets

The quality of your pet’s coat or fur typically is a good indicator of your pet’s overall health, and no amount or system of grooming is a substitute for proper nutrition and exercise. Therefore, a balanced diet with proper proteins, vitamins, minerals – and even healthy fats in appropriate proportion – is necessary for your pet to have “that healthy look” that makes a pet so handsome and beautiful.

Yes. In fact in the April 2005 issue of Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine’s newsletter for cat owners, the FURminator deShedding Tool was ranked among the best for getting rid of excess hair that causes hairballs.
Undercoat grows back after about 4-6 weeks. You will see the best results applying the treatment on a monthly basis to reduce shedding.
No, the deShedding Tool does not cut hair, it just gently pulls out the fluffy undercoat, leaving the topcoat shiny and undamaged.
Yes, but the treatment is even more effective with the shampoo and solution.
The tool will work on all shedding dogs and even on some traditionally “hair-cut-only” dogs, like Terriers and Spaniels to coarsen the coat and blend clipper tracks. A few breeds that are typically not good candidates for the FURminator Shed-Less Treatment are Poodles, Shitzus, Maltese, Bichons, Portuguese Water Dogs, and Irish Water Spaniels.
Yes, and in addition to removing the undercoat and loose hair, the treatment also offers some additional benefits for terriers. Terriers have a naturally coarse coat, and many of the show dogs are hand “striped” to keep this texture in their topcoats. But using a clipper “softens” the coat, which is not desirable. Using the FURminator deShedding Tool on a regular basis, however, will help retain that coarse terrier coat on dogs that have had their hair trimmed with clippers. Schnauzers can also develop a darker color “stripe” down their backs from clippers. The deShedding Tool will help eliminate this “stripe” and help return the coat to its original color.
