Safari Flea Comb for Cats Review

| May 20, 2014 | 5 Comments

Safari Flea Comb with a Double Row of TeethWe received the Safari Flea Comb for Cats with metal tines for review with two of their other combs, as you will see below in the arrival video.

Luckily, we weren’t able to test the Safari Flea Comb for Cats on it’s ability to actually remove fleas – but I did use it on the finer hair areas of my cats’ faces, etc.

However, I read the reviews on Amazon and many folks ranted and raved at it’s ability to “catch” fleas.

Some folks complained about the tines bending after too much use, however, I found that as long as I used the comb after I had brushed them with a regular comb to get the knots/tangles out, there were no issues with the tines bending.  Of course, a flea comb with the tines that are so close together is not ideal for massive brushing – massive brushing should first be done with a de-shedding comb or the like to make it easier to get the tighter comb through the hair.  This is especially true for a long haired kitty.

Someone mentioned being able to use it on feline chin acne – Chiggy is clean out of zits at the moment, so I couldn’t test it, but I see how it could easily get the job done.

The tips of the comb teeth or tines are rounded and very gentle – compared to the other Safari Flea Comb that we already reviewed a few weeks ago – I like that this one has a handle and that the tines are metal.

You can buy the Safari Flea Comb for Cats on Amazon by itself for $6.80.  If you live in the USA and buy $35 worth of stuff on Amazon then it ships for free.

    I don’t understand why anyone would use this for full grooming, but I don’t understand a lot of things. Flea combs are great for sensitive, delicate, hard to reach areas, but I can see a cat becoming extremely annoyed and vexed if such a comb were run over his/her entire body.

    I don’t use anything on my cats that I first haven’t tried myself. (I dread trying mice.) In my less-than-humble opinion, a flea comb should be used last in the grooming routine. When I wake up looking like Eraserhead, a flea comb will just give me an immediate face lift. Start with the wide tines (or brush) and work your way down.

    In the video you mentioned that you used a method of flea control that was successful and your kitties dont get fleas no more. What method is that? We have a very similar flea comb, i dont even remember the brand but, it works very well. Our cats pretty much always have fleas though and Im sick of using so many chemicals on the cats and all over the house. It might be that I live in the tropics and its a bit harder to get rid of bugs here. Still, i would love to know what you use on Charlie and Trigg, i trust your opinion.

      Hi Elines,

      I believe you’re mistaken. Without listening to the video, I am 100% sure I didn’t say that because I have never done that, so there would be no reason for me to talk as if I did. I’m too honest for that.

      I use what my vet recommends, Revolution, the alcohol based one and I absolutely hate myself for putting it on them.

      Thanks,
      Jenny

    I agree with Dementia Boy when he suggests using a flea comb last in the grooming regimen. I don’t groom my cat’s face at all. What I use a metal-tined flea comb for is her chest and belly. That way, she doesn’t get any tangles. I trim her hair in this region once a month, too. I use the flea comb for probably 30 seconds to a minute, complimenting her continuously while I’m doing it.
