Rabbit, Ferret, Guinea Pig & Other Small Animal deShedding Tools

The FURminator® deShedding Tool for Small Animals

According to the 2011-2012 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, there are 16 million small animal pets in the U.S. We have good news for the owners of these small animals: FURminator has the perfect tool to help them enhance the health and safety of their pets.

The FURminator deShedding Tool for Small Animals is specifically designed to effectively remove up to 90 percent of the loose hair from rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and other small mammals.

Small animals can shed a lot and a FURminator deShedding Tool can help to keep a house much cleaner and healthier. In addition to improving the appearance of the pet, the tool also improves the health of the small animal by eliminating hairballs. Although rabbits and ferrets are self-groomers, unlike cats, these animals cannot expel a hairball. Ingested hair can become a real problem for many small animals causing intestinal obstructions, loss of appetite and illness.

The tool features a shorter, ergonomic handle and smaller edge than our other deShedding products for added versatility when grooming smaller pets. As with our other deShedding tools, however, it does feature a FURejector® button that cleans and removes the loose hair from the deShedding tool with a simple push of a button.
