Furminator Alternate

I don't make much money dog grooming in my area. I do always look for new cheaper tools. The furminator is expensive, I always wanted to try one though. But I found a cheaper one! $9.00 for the handle & one blade! $11.00 for different size replacement blades!

I found mine at Walmart!

Re: Furminator Alternate

Oh cool, thanks for sharing!!! I have looked at the Furminator too and just have not spent the money on one.

Want mine? It works better on the cats than the dogs, but I still prefer my undercoat rake on everybody. The furminator just sits in the cat room gathering dust.

Re: Furminator Alternate

You must be kidding!!!!

That thing has been touted as the "god" of grooming tools for double coated dogs. I have used undercoat rakes for years too. Maybe that is why I never spent the money for the furminator!

Hey the H is doing okay!!! I have been able to reduce the Tylan powder and sometimes stop it. When he flares I put it back and he is better. He is never going to have really sold pooeys I'm afraid. But he is thriving and is 70 pounds now. He is really a sweet pup.

Re: Furminator Alternate

I think it is great! I can even use this on my black Pug, who has no undercoat, but does shed!

Re: Furminator Alternate

I was at wal-mart today and it was $19 and the replacement blade was $11. I did get an undercoat rake for 4.96 and it is great. Clover, my golden/border x really needed that! I am surprised I went 14 years without one! I brushed her and now have a border/golden puppy from all the fur I raked out~ just need to add eyes!

Re: Furminator Alternate

Laube also has a deshedding tool with interchangeable heads - including combs which act as a rake. Might also be worth a look - way cheaper than the Furminator and some say it works better.

I looked at the furminator today & it just looks like a flea comb with a handle
