Best Cat Brush for Shedding that Doesn’t Cut like Furminator – Equigroomer

Many moons ago, we reviewed the Equigroomer cat-shedding brush.  I recently published a newer video about it.  And many viewers have asked whether or not the Equigroomer cuts the pet’s hair. 

I know why they are asking this, of course.  Once upon a time, I made the HUGE mistake of brushing my parents’ cat, Caymus, with the Furminator and completely ruined the LOOK of his coat. 

Yes, that’s right.  I didn’t ruin Caymus’s coat – but I ruined the look of it. Why?  The Furminator has razor blades that cut the fur and remove even the healthy hair – so you are left with a dull-looking coat.  It does the job of getting rid of fur, but it does more than you want it to.

That’s why I like a brush like the Equigroomer – it does not cut the fur – instead, it pulls out the dead stuff.  An extra bonus is that my Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg, who hate to be groomed, will tolerate the Equigroomer for quite a while. With the Equigroomer, they’ll tolerate it for 5-10 minutes vs. 5-10 seconds with other combs or brushes.

    This looks awesome! I remember using something like this on horses when I was younger. Going to get one of these for sure!

  2. Brilliantly PAWESOME Product Spotlight Post, Pics & Video, Jenny! Very well done! Impressive! LURVED! AND, I totally agree with you about the EquiGroomer! It works very well but really needs to be done outside due to the fluffles flying around everywhere! Makes for a very messy indoor grooming session so I don’t use it all that often on Miss PSB unless I’m in the mood for massive Lilly Brushin’ session afterwards for my chair, my pants, my shirt, and the carpet around the chair…lol. 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3
