The Furminator has arrived!
I’ve read many positive testimonials/reviews on the Furminator, and decided to try it for myself. It’s rather pricey (~RM120), but if it works as well as its supposed to, then I’d consider it money well spent 🙂
I got the small-sized tool (1.75 inch wide de-shedding edge)
Herein lies the secret to its effectiveness
I’ve tried many different types of combs before, but none were effective in removing loose fur. The main problem was that the combs were unable to push through the top coat.. basically, the combs were just running over the top of my rabbits’ fur, and so could not lift the loose fur which were lying beneath the top coat.
For the longest time, I’ve been using my hands to pull out their loose fur. I found this to be the most effective method, especially during a heavy molt.
Well, after trying out the Furminator on the furrybutts, I’m happy to report that it works well! The ‘teeth’ pushes through the top coat with much ease, and lifts out all the loose guard hair beneath.
But my rabbits aren’t molting at the moment.. I can’t wait to see how well the Furminator works during a real molt! I’ll post an update then.
For now, though, I’m quite happy with the Furminator. I don’t think I’ll need to use the hand-method anymore, and hopefully it’ll stop ‘snowing’ bunny-fur in this apartment 🙂
