  • YES! Seriously, I am a freakin' informercial for this brush.
    I bought one at Petsmart for $40. Seems like a LOT for a brush, I know... but seriously, think of it this way - at Petsmart, they tell you if you don't like it, you can bring it back for a refund.
    I not only didn't get a refund, but when they were on sale for $25, I bought one for my mom and one for a friend. They're THAT good. I have tons of different brushes, and none even come CLOSE. I only have a shorthaired cat too, but this thing is absolutely amazing even for her.

  • Hi -Well, it is a very good product - I don't own one but I have used it.

    works great.

    I mainly use a undercoat rake but the furminator does make things faster..

    I don't have a dog with a thick undercoat ...

  • Hubby and I have one, we love it! You could stuff a couch with the amount of fur we got off our cats (dog doesn't need it, he has short fur.) Definitely worth the cost!

  • Yes it works amazing on the short hair cats, on the labs, the border collie, german shepard, springer spaniel...
