I can't speak to how well it works for dog for but for our cats this flea comb worked incredibly well at sifting out both flea dirt and live fleas themselves. Fleas actually are pretty easily trapped in between and the best thing to do once you comb them out of the cats fur is to quickly get the fur clumps into a cup filled with soapy water. While this helps remove live fleas, keep in mind that this won't be enough to eliminate the flea problem. The best purpose for this tool is to help you determine if your cat does have fleas by trying to find flea dirt or adult fleas when you see them itching excessively. Our cats would tolerate being combed with this brush pretty well but sometimes they could get over stimulated, but I think that's a general cat thing. I would recommend trying to use treats while you comb them with this to keep the cat focused on something else. It is important to try and get as many of the adult fleas out as you can. I wouldn't recommend trying to smush the fleas after you've gotten them out of the fur, fleas are incredibly hard to squish and can get away quickly. Leaving them in the soapy water is the best way to ensure that they drown and die.
One of the best combs! This is my 3rd comb i purchased because its just that good i think someone keeps stealing it from me. The flea gods or something. Its catches fleas, ticks and other crawling things that get on my cat who is an outdoor/indoor pet and my 2 dogs. My two dogs no matter if we are taking a short walk to the corner fleas love to hitch a ride. Drives me crazy but i dont do pills etc so i deal with it. Make sure to have a cup of soapy water to dip your comb in next to you because when you use the comb it will be a flea party inside the middle. Where we live the weather is humid so fleas are out of the control. The only issue i have is over a very short period (not even a whole month) of time the comb bristles bend. The very first comb i bought didnt do that but of course the flea gods stole it. Since ive bought this comb the bristles bend on me, then i have to straightened them out as to not scratch my babies. My only issue with the comb. One of the best combs and i have a few others that are good too but this one is the best.
Received a used comb. Trying to groom a pet who hates her skin/fur being touched is hard enough. This had so many good reviews but maybe they’re fake like someone else who also received a used one pointed out. Disappointed
