Shedding is quite prevalent at my house with three dogs and two cats, so when I was offered a self cleaning deshedding tool from MIU PET, I accepted. Would this be the fur stopper we have been dreaming of?
It certainly looks nice, but looking nice doesn’t stop shedding! Mom attached the comb end to the handle and it was ready to get to work on our furs.
Before we got to deep into the fur, I got my paws on this deshedding tool. I’m not a big fan of brushing, and I felt the need to check it out personally before using. It is supposed to be self cleaning with the touch of a button. It comes in two sizes, we got the large, and is for use with dogs or cats, which is quite practical for us.
I was the first test subject. It really wasn’t doing much for my furs. The light bulb went on and Mom got my stripping tool, stripped my furs a bit, and then tried the deshedding tool. For my furs this was the only way it really worked. I do have a lot of loose hair after my coat gets stripped, and this tool would get rid of a lot of that hair. You can see in the bottom left photo, Mom pushes the button and my furs fall right out of the comb.
Next up I had Katie give it a test. She is a dog that has unlimited, fur. It is super thick, and she is always shedding! Mom tried to use it on Katie, starting from her head and moving on down as the directions state. It did get some fur off, but she really needs a rake type brush or a comb with much longer teeth to get into her furs. For Katie, not the right tool.
Here, kitty, kitty! Yes, cat bro Bert has short fur, but he does shed ALOT! Let’s give it a try on a cat, shall we? Jackpot! Bert loves getting combed or brushed and we got a ton of fur off of him! The guy should be bald with all the fur the MIU PET Deshedding Tool took out! The medium size brush would be ideal, but we can use the large on him too. The fur popped right out of the tool too! Later in the day, Mom did notice a lot less shedding when he was on her lap getting petted.
My take on the MIU PET Deshedding Tool – Perfect for the cat, not quite ideal for a thick coat like a Kuvasz has, or for wire hair breeds who normally get stripped. I would guess it would be great for a lab or other types of coats like that. The self cleaning feature was very helpful. MIU PET claims it will reduce shedding up to 95%. I do believe this claim with the cat, but it didn’t do much for me or Katie.
