Undercoat deShedding can be performed at any time on a horse with a completely dry coat, but for best results it is recommended to be performed immediately after washing or drying. FURminator® brand's extensive line of grooming products are designed to promote healthy skin and coats in horses, and significantly reduce the amount of hair that is being shed into the house with regular use.
Before using the undercoat deShedding tool, perform a complete physical inspection of your horse. Look for sores, bruises and skin conditions, which your horses’s coat may conceal. If your horse has any of these conditions, seek treatment from a veterinarian before brushing. In addition, before using the undercoat deShedding tool, remove tangles or mats with FURminator® Adjustable deMatter Tool or Grooming Rake.
Use the undercoat deShedding tool much like a brush, gently stroking across the horses’s coat in the direction of hair growth, angling the stainless steel teeth towards the coat. Start from your horse’s head and work your way back, using extra care near the stomach, legs, genitals, and anus. Avoid making excessive strokes in a single area, instead using fewer long, gentle strokes up and away from your horse's skin. Although the Skin Guard® design prevents digging in at edges and helps the undercoat deShedding tool slide over skin, deep or rough brushing can still irritate pet skin, so avoid brushing with excessive pressure. If you notice any redness or irritation discontinue use.
As undercoat hair is collected by your tool, excess hair can be removed from the teeth of the tool by pushing the FURejector® button.
