Absolute rubbish keep your money in your pocket, does not work how they say it is supposed to just pulls your dogs fur and makes your job a lot harder and frustrating, and your dog is less cooperative because of the fur pulling.
I bought this to replace an old one, it was rubbish! It was blunt and pulled my dogs fur, he hated it. I ended up using the old which I have had for a couple of years and it still performed better than this.
This mat remover comb thing didn't work for me at all. But maybe it'll work for you? Read on to hear my tales of woe:
I have a 14lb havanese/silky terrier mixed dog with long hair that tangles and mats easily. He was a recent rescue and came with a few mats already that regular brushing couldn't fix. Problem areas include behind the ears, armpits, and booty. I've tried slicker brushes, metal combs, cornstarch, detangling spray, threats (to the mats, not the dog), sweet-talking (to my dog, the mats can go to hell) and finally this dematting comb - and everything including this product has yielded underwhelming results.
I see where the inner hooked bits are supposed to be 'sharp' but it probably can't cut through anything except my hopes and dreams. The comb bites through the matted fur but then gets stuck - it's not cutting through anything. I used this on my pooch who suffered through my attempts for about 10 minutes before trying to hide behind my other (much smaller) dog. Then I tried cutting a single strand of my own hair and it just pulled out the end still attached to my head.
In the end, I cut off the worst mats by the ears and my groomer shaved off the rest. I decided to keep the comb in case future attempts yield better results but I'm honestly not expecting much at this point.
If you’re ok with ripping your pets hair out, then I suppose this is fine, but I would recommend you NOT be a pet owner. My poor cat has several large matted sections of hair on his chest. I was excited to use this after all the great reviews. It does NOT cut through matted hair AT ALL. Anyone who says it does, is merely ripping their pet’s hair out. It’s absolutely terrible. I’m a lifelong pet owner, and also spent 20 years of my life on a farm caring for animals. If I could give this product zero stars, I would.
Started to use this on my cat and she immediately hated it. The resistance was high, even going through fur that wasn't matted. I was curious how sharp the blades were so I tested it on one of my own hairs. A SINGLE HAIR. I had to push it so hard against the blade that I used the same amount of force I would have need to break my hair from just pulling. I am flabbergasted how this could manage to cut through any sort of mat in fur and how there are so many good reviews. My hair is not some iron clad strand and my cat's fur is super thin as well.
My cat has mats. I bought this comb as a way to remove them that was less prone to hazard than using scissors. It fails. The "blades" aren't sharp enough to cut through a single hair, much less a mat. It just tangled up in the hair, freaked out the cat, and I had to grab the scissors to free the tool. Nice handle and heft, but the actual working part of the tool doesn't work.
