What is the Furminator and why is it so recommended?

Cat with furminator

If you live like me with a cat that, although it has short hair, leaves traces wherever it passes, especially during the hot months, then you urgently need a brush called furminator. This is, so far, the one that removes the most dead hair, leaving the coat soft and silky.

Brushing daily with this special brush is one of the best ways to prevent the dreaded hairballs from forming, which can cause constipation, vomiting, and other unpleasant symptoms.

Our friend's coat needs some basic care, something that he knows very well, since he spends a good part of his time grooming himself. But of course, if a lot of hair is swallowed, it can end up feeling bad. So how do you avoid it? Indeed: with a Furminator.

This is a very easy brush to use, since you only have to remove the plastic cover that protects it, and pass it over the body. You will see that with just the first pass, you will have removed an interesting amount of dead hair, but do not be scared: does not cut hair, just remove loose strands without damaging the skin.

It is highly advisable to use it on a regular basis (or, better daily), since this way, by reducing the amount of dead hair, allergic reactions are also reduced, which is not bad at all if there is a member of the family who has or thinks they may have an allergy to dander from these animals.

In addition, you will find several models and measures, depending on the length of your friend's hair. I said, one of the best brushes on the market that you cannot miss on your shopping list of cat accessories.

Thanks to him, you will never have to remove the remains of hair left around the house. Do you dare to try it?
