My house is not a house. It’s actually a zoo.
OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. With four demanding felines and one sassy, cat-like canine under our roof, it sure feels like a zoo sometimes. We love all of our pets like family, but their fur gets everywhere. And even with constant vacuuming, it’s hard to keep up.
That is, until I discovered The FURminator.
If it sounds serious, that’s because it’s seriously effective. This magical device, invented by a professional pet groomer, was developed to safely, comfortably and gently get rid of your pet’s loose undercoat ““ the hair that usually falls off and makes its way to your floors, furniture and favorite sweater.
If you’re wondering if it really works, hear me out. We have a shiba inu, a breed known for its thick, wiry hair and an undercoat that falls out in clumps at least twice a year. Thanks to regular brushing with the FURminator De-Shedding Tool, her coat looks wonderful — and so does my furniture!
Not to mention, both the pup and the kitties absolutely love being brushed. It’s a treat for both of us.
3 Tips to Help Stop Shedding
In addition to regular light brushings with the FURminator, what else can you do to stop the shedding madness?
- High-quality food: Just like in humans, a pet’s external well-being is often a reflection of internal health. Feeding your furry friends high-quality pet food free of unnecessary fillers is a great start.
- Supplements: There are several nutrients that may support a shiny, healthy coat — including omega-3 essential fatty acids. You can find omega-3s in both supplement and treat form, for cats and dogs.
- Bath time: A clean coat is a healthy coat. But because bathing recommendations vary based on your dog’s breed, be sure to do some research first. Use a gentle shampoo that nourishes your pet’s coat, like FURminator Ultra-Premium Shampoo. For pets that don’t require regular bathing, try FURminator DeShedding Waterless Spray.
