Q: How effective is the Furminator for preventing mats?

How effective is the Furminator for preventing mats?

I just ordered the small version of the Furminator on-line to use on our three long haired cats. I had heard great things about the brush, mainly that it prevented shedding very well. I was wondering if anyone has used the product and whether it noticeably aided in preventing and taking out mats as well? Our one cat, just adopted, is very prone to matting and I'm hoping this brush will help more than the others we already have.

It will help with shedding and removing a lot of the extra fur which will in turn help with the matting, but it wont remove the mats. Just brush him everyday with that and a comb and that should help prevent the mats.

I don't know about taking out mats but it definitely helps prevent them. It really gets off the second layer (under coat) of fur that a regular brush doesn't. It works amazingly!

It is incredible! I have four cats and they all line up to be brushed/combed with it.
