Control the Flying Fur

Clean-up after a pet’s deShedding session just got even easier! Compatible with small, medium and large size FURminator® deShedding Tools for both dogs and cats, the FURminator Vacuum Accessory (MSRP $19.99) attaches to your vacuum, making the loose fur disappear.

How does it work? The FURminator deShedding Tool securely straps to the Vacuum Accessory and your vacuum. The tool can be used to remove loose undercoat hair with short, firm strokes. After the edge has accumulated loose fur, simply press the FURejector® button to release the hair. The hair will automatically go into the vacuum.

The FURminator Vacuum Accessory features two removable heads to adjust tool size and two attachments to fit all vacuum brands. Together the deShedding tool and Vacuum Accessory help pet owners control the flyer fur and make clean-up simpler.

Check out the segment on Lifetime’s Balancing Act – Balancing Act. Groomer Chris Lee will demonstrate the FURminator Vacuum Accessory and how it makes clean up so easy.

DIY: Grooming At Home

According to the American Pet Products Association, Americans spent $3.79 billion in 2011 on pet services, including grooming. In these tough economic times, pet owners are finding ways to economize without sacrificing the well-being of their beloved pets. Many have discovered that when it comes to grooming, a Do-It-Yourself approach can save thousands of dollars!

By understanding the “Science of Fur,” FURminator® has developed a cost-effective and efficient solution to a significant pet problem: shedding.

Designed by a professional groomer, and used and recommended by veterinarians, FURminator deShedding Tools (MSRP $34.99 to $72.99) for dogs, cats and small animals reduce shedding up to 90% by reaching deep beneath the long topcoat to gently remove undercoat and loose hair.

The FURminator 2-Step Grooming Process helps pet parents choose the right brush and the right comb for their pet’s hair needs, and FURminator nail tools make trimming safe and effective for all pets, even puppies and kittens.

Regular grooming is an essential element of pet care and is critical to shedding prevention. Grooming is also important to keeping pet owners’ homes clean and healthy. With FURminator products, consumers can produce professional grooming results at home without the inconvenience or costs of outside services.
