Directions for use
Please read all instructions and FAQs carefully before beginning your grooming. Use the FURminator® Adjustable deMatter Tool only as directed. Matted fur can cause severe discomfort for pets and become increasingly difficult to remove if left unchecked. The deMatter tool can prevent mats from becoming worse and remove them completely.
To demat your pet, first start by adjusting the dematting cutting edges to the desired position appropriate for your pet’s hair length by pressing the FURextender button, and then locking into place with the easy-slide tab.
Move the mat breaker through fur mats following the grain of the hair, using brisk, firm strokes for best results. Continue until mats are broken up. Smaller mats will fall out on their own, or become small enough to remove with regular brushing.
Questions and Answers
WHAT HAIR TYPES DOES THE FURMINATOR® ADJUSTABLE DEMATTER TOOL WORK ON?
The tool works with most hair types, long or short, thick or fine, and for most animal types. Regardless of hair type, always use on a dry pet so mats are loose.
WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD FOR REMOVING MATS?
Patiently tackling mats slowly and deliberately works well. Large mats that have been neglected for a long period may take some time to remove.
AFTER DEMATTING, HOW DO I AVOID FUTURE PET HAIR MATS?
Grooming your cat daily with a brush or rake can go a long way to preventing the formation of mats. Once mats have been removed from dematting, it is easier to stay on top of detangling with regular brushing.
