Directions for use

Please read all instructions and FAQs carefully before beginning your grooming. Use the FURminator® Undercoat deShedding Tool only as directed. Undercoat deShedding is not the same as brushing or combing – it removes loose dead hair from shedding without cutting or damaging the topcoat.*

STEP 1

Undercoat deShedding can be performed at any time on a horse with a completely dry coat, but for best results it is recommended to be performed immediately after washing or drying. FURminator® brand's extensive line of grooming products are designed to promote healthy skin and coats in horses, and significantly reduce the amount of hair that is being shed into the house with regular use.

STEP 2

Before using the undercoat deShedding tool, perform a complete physical inspection of your horse. Look for sores, bruises and skin conditions, which your horses’s coat may conceal. If your horse has any of these conditions, seek treatment from a veterinarian before brushing. In addition, before using the undercoat deShedding tool, remove tangles or mats with FURminator® Adjustable deMatter Tool or Grooming Rake. 

STEP 3

Use the undercoat deShedding tool much like a brush, gently stroking across the horses’s coat in the direction of hair growth, angling the stainless steel teeth towards the coat. Start from your horse’s head and work your way back, using extra care near the stomach, legs, genitals, and anus. Avoid making excessive strokes in a single area, instead using fewer long, gentle strokes up and away from your horse's skin. Although the Skin Guard® design prevents digging in at edges and helps the undercoat deShedding tool slide over skin, deep or rough brushing can still irritate pet skin, so avoid brushing with excessive pressure. If you notice any redness or irritation discontinue use.

STEP 4

As undercoat hair is collected by your tool, excess hair can be removed from the teeth of the tool by pushing the FURejector® button.

*When used as directed. 

Questions & Answers

CAN THE UNDERCOAT DESHEDDING TOOL BE USED ON ALL PETS?

The undercoat deShedding tool may be used on most animals that shed, including dogs, cats, small animals and other pets such as horses and donkeys with an undercoat. The undercoat deShedding tool should not be used on non-shedding breeds or on pets with particularly sensitive skin. Please consult your veterinarian if you are unsure if your pet has an undercoat, before using FURminator® Undercoat deShedding Tool.

HOW OFTEN AND HOW LONG SHOULD I USE THE FURMINATOR UNDERCOAT DESHEDDING TOOL?

For best results, use the FURminator® Undercoat deShedding tool 1-2 times a week for 10 to 20 minutes each session, though the actual time will vary depending on your pet’s breed, the condition of their coat, and the thickness of the pet’s individual coat. It may be necessary to use the undercoat deShedding tool more frequently during heavy shedding seasons. FURminator’s grooming edge is designed to make grooming pets faster and easier while the Skin Guard® design allows to tool to glide over most pet skin.

WHERE SHOULD I PERFORM THE GROOMING PROCESS?

The undercoat deShedding tool will remove large amounts of loose hair and undercoat, so a location that is easy to clean, such as a tile floor indoors or an outdoor area, makes cleanup more convenient. Most importantly, always choose a location where your pet feels comfortable and safe.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY UNDERCOAT DESHEDDING TOOL?

  • Brush your pet before using the undercoat deShedding tool to remove any mats or tangles. Using the tool on matted or tangled fur can bend or break the teeth, as well as feel uncomfortable for the pet.
  • Be careful not to drop or place the undercoat deShedding tool where it can fall, as it may result in damage to the tool’s teeth
  • The deShedding edge can be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap if necessary. Cleaning can reduce the feeling of a dull edge by reducing dander collection on the teeth of the deShedding edge. Dry the undercoat deShedding tool completely before storing.
  • The FURminator undercoat deShedding tool has an Edge Guard around the deShedding edge, so the tool does not require a cap when stored. Simply press down the FURejector® button and pull towards you to lock the Edge Guard into place, protecting the deShedding edge.
