I don’t know if it’s the short coat or if it’s because I don’t brush him enough but – our carpets are always coated in black hair from that dog!
For this kind of shedding, a standard dog brush is worthless, at least for my shorthaired Lab mix. His coat is smooth, like a beagle or a wiener dog. (Hey, his DNA test did suggest wiener dog!) He also sheds year round.
So what works for coats like this? I can’t tell you what a difference a de-shedding tool makes. You just have to try it if you haven’t. You gently brush your dog with it and the loose hair easily comes out.
What is a de-shedding tool for dogs and cats?
A de-shedding tool is a pet comb with a stainless steel “blade” that uses fine bristles to remove loose hair anddramatically decrease shedding.
It can be used for dogs AND cats.
I use the same size (large) for my cats and my 70-pound dog so you probably don’t need multiple brushes for different-sized pets. It comes in medium, large and extra-large.
The de-shedding brush from MIU PET works just as well as the FURminator and generally costs around half the price.
Brushing each of my pets for just five minutes once a week makes a HUGE difference in decreasing the amount of loose hair floating around on my floors, furniture and clothes.
It also cuts down on my dog’s MAJOR dandruff. Ace, I love you, but you’re gross!
Some primary features of the MIU PET de-shedding tool
· Works to remove loose hair on cats & dogs
· Removes dead skin too
· Has a push button to release the hair from the brush
· The brush’s “blade” comes in sizes ranging from medium (2.7″ wide) to large (4.1″) to XL (5.1″)
· Highly recommended by me for cats or dogs with short to medium coats (Labs, pitbulls, pointers, German shepherds, even a husky!)
· Works just as well as other brands such as FURminator
More details on the MIU PET de-shedding tool
What I like about this de-shedding brush:
§ The large size should work for most pets, even cats. It’s what I use for my cats AND my 70-pound dog.
§ Works REALLY well for removing loose hair!
§ Reasonable priced at $26.99 on Amazon. Currently on sale for .
§ No negative reviews on Amazon because it works great!
What’s not so good:
§ With any de-shedding tool, you don’t want to brush too hard or you could irritate your dog’s skin.
§ Seems to work better on short and medium coats than longer coats.
§ The “self cleaning” push button didn’t seem to work all that well for me. Regardless, the brush works really well as a de-shedding tool.
Consider a de-shedding tool for your pets if:
You feel like you’re constantly pulling pet hair from your clothes, blankets and furniture.
It’s as if fur just keeps “falling off” your pet constantly!
You’re shocked by the amount of pet hair every time you vacuum!
You’d like to have a nice de-shedding option between professional grooming appointments.
You definitely deserved a MIU PET deshedding tool.
